Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures continue their theatrical run for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has turned into the biggest cinematic event in several years since it debuted in mid-December 2021. Featuring classic Marvel villains like Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin and Alfred Molina's Doc Ock as the MCU's Multiverse broke apart for the first time, the threequel brought unforgettable moments in seemingly every scene.
Part of the challenge of bringing so many characters back from past movies was making sure they all looked the way they did as many as 20 years ago, while also updating their image to fit into the MCU. This was particularly important for Dafoe's Goblin, who found himself in the role of the lead antagonist as he made his terrifying impact on Tom Holland's Peter Parker, his friends, and his fellow Spider-Men.
Now that No Way Home is a few weeks into its theatrical run, it has the chance to be celebrated in collectible form in the same manner as projects ranging from Iron Man to What If...?. The latest of these collectibles puts Dafoe's villain into the spotlight, giving fans the chance to pay tribute to two decades of superhero movie history.
Hot Toys Takes On the Green Goblin
Hot Toys released images of a new figure depicting Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin from Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: No Way Home.
This figure comes with multiple different attachments that can be switched out for the Goblin's hands and head. There are three different pairs of hands, all able to wield the villain's classic pumpkin bombs:
Looking at the incredibly realistic details on this figure, fans will note Norman Osborn's face can even be seen in the mouth of the Goblin Mask:
This figure comes with the new version of Goblin's glider, which first came into play through Oscorp in 2002's Spider-Man. The wings are movable to shape the glider in multiple film-accurate positions:
In total, the figure set comes with the Goblin figure, the glider, three pumpkin bombs, a stand with the villain's name on it, and a substitute head that presumably shows Willem Dafoe's face:
Goblin Comes Back to Life in Collectible Form
Hot Toys is known for creating hyper-realistic collectible items for nearly every major franchise in pop culture, which continues with the latest Marvel Studios epic. This one in particular honors Spidey's entire cinematic history by bringing the first-ever live-action big bad from Sam Raimi's first superhero movie at the turn of the century.
While it's unknown when this figure will go on sale or what its price tag will be, the Goblin figure should be a hot-ticket item with Spider-Man: No Way Home remaining the most popular movie in the world.
Also of note is that Dafoe's villain is sporting the look that he had in his first appearance before changing things up in his MCU debut. While he wore the green costume for the entire threequel, he covered that costume with dark robes and destroyed his classic mask almost immediately after coming in through the Multiverse.
Regardless of the reasoning, this new figurine comes as an item that should find its way into many homes as No Way Home continues its run in theaters and then moves into its streaming and home release debut. Whether Dafoe's Goblin returns in future movies is unknown, although this collectible will keep the memories of his Marvel impact alive.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters worldwide.
