Tamashii Nations Doing Japanese Spider-Man Live-Action TV Series Figures

Tamashii Nations Doing Japanese Spider-Man Live-Action TV Series Figures


Jay Cochran - March 22, 2020
Magazine scans have surfaced online giving us our first at new figures from Tamashii Nations based on the Japanese Spider-Man Live-Action TV Series that originally aired overseas in the late 70's.

I've only seen clips of it on YouTube, but the best way to describe the series is, think Power Rangers only with Spider-Man.



In the show Spider-Man would use a wrist bracelet for many of the gadgets and it would even store his costume. To capture this, Tamashii Nations is doing a S.H. Figurarts figure for Spider-Man with the bracelet and some web effects.

Spider-Man also used vehicles in this show including a flying car called The Spider Machine GP-7 and a spacecraft called The Marveller. The Marveller could then transform into a 60 meter tall robot called the Leopardon.

No sign of Tamashii doing the car or spacecraft, but they are bringing us a version of the Leopardon robot in their larger scale Chogokin Spirits line which will come with a sword and Spider-Shield.

The show while super campy has developed a decent size fan-following over the years even though the show never aired here in the US. We had our own campy live-action Spider-Man TV series. Anyway, check out the magazine scans below and look for official images and more details on these to be released soon from Tamashii Nations.

The robot looks great...I find the action figure odd in terms of lower body design.

Damn this is sooo cool, I dunno if its figure for most but its definitely hits the geek spot for realspider-man fans.

I remember the first time i saw this version on Youtube. I was like wth? And that rope for a spider web was hilarious. You could pull a tugboat with that thing. The figure looks great though. Gotta luv it.

@JayCyou say power rangers but with spiderman but in fact if it wasnt for this show, thepower ranger would not be what it is today. Monsters of the week, giant mecha, campy story. Yeah pr owes everything to this show.

The only aspect that Power Rangers owes this show is the giant robot. Without Leopardon, there wouldnt be mecha in Super Sentai (aka Megazords in Power Rangers). Everything else had been done before since Super Sentai and Kamen Rider started before Toeis Spider-Man. Also, what you call a campy story is what Marvel and folks has been doing for quite some time in their comics. This was just the Japanese live action version of it.

As someone else had stated, the Power Rangers episode of Toys That Made Us dives into this topic. You should watch it.

Looks really good!!! All the sculpt for the fabric is amazing! I've no interest in the figure, but can't deny it's very well done!

Not my cup of tea, and for what Tamashii Nations typically charges for their products it's not something I'm even going to entertain purchasing,but this is still something cool to see.

Great looking figure. One of these days I'm gonna have to check this series out.
