Yes, it’s cute. Yes, it’s sweet. But it’s also hideously creepy. Spider-Man is headlining a new line of Sofubi soft vinyl figures from Japan.
They previously ran these equally distressing DC characters, in a retro freaking-out style.
Seriously, are they being designed by Dan Clowes or something? Well now it’s Marvel’s time.
You can buy spidey direct from Japan for $84 plus shipping. But you can also buy it direct from your comic store for $80, one of 500 being officially distributed out of the country. You’ll need Diamond Code JUN148300.
[*Editor’s Note: HMS here– Unlike Rich, I think the Sofubi figures are great, and if these scare Rich, I clearly need all of them and can justify them as a work expense.]
