Spiderman Homecoming Trailer. What action figures can we expect from this 2 minute glimpse of the mo

The Spiderman Homecoming Trailer has hit, and from everything I have read has been really positively received by fans. My mind has already turned to what figures I can expect from the movie - and of course we will have figures from both Hasbro and Diamond to choose from. The far east properties will likely kick in too at a later stage - SH Figuarts and Mafex in particular.

In actual fact the trailer showed us very little. We got a good look at Spiderman, and you can pretty much guarantee a wall crawler to be released from all parties. I would expect Hasbro and Diamond to go with an unmasked head, with Diamond's potentially a Disney Store Exclusive.

We already know that Hasbro will be releasing the Vulture. This is great news, and you can read all about it HERE. The new design looks pretty impressive and he would be a stunner of a figure. Diamond are tending to go with one figure for standalone film and they haven't made a villain since The Chitauri. As sad as that is, a 7" scale Vulture is unlikely.

From what I can tell, the Iron-Man suit shown at the end of the movie is pretty much the Mk46 Civil War suit. That would allow both Hasbro and Diamond to repack that figure in with a Spiderman range. This is however unlikely with Hasbro avoiding repacks in the Legends range, and the Diamond version from Civil War still hanging around at retail - so we have to assume it wasn't a fast seller.

Whatever happens the next few months are going to be good to Marvel fans. We've already seen the Legends for Guardians of the Galaxy and I suspect we will see the Spiderman figures at Toy Fair. Then of course we still have Thor Ragnarok - and Diamond have already alluded to a Planet Hulk figure.
