Marvel Legends: Leaked image reveals Cyborg Spider-Man for Retro Collection

Cyborg Spider-Man looks very likely to be the next member of Marvel Legend’s Retro Collection.

Over the weekend, toy reviewer/scooper Todd Ortiz (aka Rektangular) posted a picture to his Instagram account of what appears to be a Marvel Legends Cyborg Spider-Man on Retro Collection packaging.

After some initial speculation that this was a custom job, Rektangular confirmed via his source that this is a legit upcoming Hasbro release.

Those of you who read my articles regularly–HI MOM–know I don’t typically post rumors/leaks that can’t be definitively confirmed. In this case, however, Rektangular’s got an extremely solid track record on scooping Marvel Legends toy news. Combine that with the photographic evidence, and it appears we’re safe getting our nostalgic 90’s hopes up for this one.

For those of you who weren’t blessed with growing up in the Grunge Era, Cyborg Spider-Man first appeared in 1990’s Spider-Man #21, written and drawn by Erik Larsen. While the reason for Spidey temporarily becoming a cyborg is ten degrees of convoluted (as was standard practice in 90’s comic storytelling), he did look really cool.

Later, Toybiz released a couple of versions of the figure: One that was single carded and one in a two-pack with Deathlok (who Spidey looks a bit like with his cybernetic enhancements).

The single carded figure and its packaging make it even more likely that Rektangular’s scoop about this being part of the Marvel Legends Retro Collection is for real.

If it is, then we should get a confirmation by Monday, November 2. The first Monday of the month has typically been when Hasbro does its monthly reveal of a new Marvel Legends figure.

I certainly hope this scoop turns out to be real–and not just because I’ll look really stupid if it doesn’t. Cyborg Spider-Man would be a must-buy for my Weird Alternate Spidey Shelf. It would also make David Brooke‘s Toybiz Cyborg Spider-Man, which is still in the box and he was planning to sell, a lot less valuable.

I know that doesn’t affect me personally, but seeing David cry has been one of my most elusive bucket list items.
