Even for all of those reasons, yes. Although those were all traumatic for him as a character, he overcame it all and became a better person through it. And because of all of that, those are my most favorite and memorable Parker Spidey stories... which is how I'd like him represented in my collection.

I know I'm an outlier and you would be totally correct for most people. I tend to like darker and more morbid stories so all of that ticks my personal preference boxes.

The closest I've come to liking a regular red and blue suit Parker Spidey is the MCU one by Queen Studios. I like the sculpt and interestingly enough, that piece is in a crouching pose as well... so that seems to be another big factor for me.

This wouldn't be my only Spidey, just possibly my only Peter Parker one. I really love the Sideshow Miles Morales. I also love the Prime 1/Sideshow and Bowen Miguel O'Hara/Spidey 2099. Add in a few female spiders like Sideshow or XM's Ghost Spider and Sideshow Silk... Symbiote Parker would be in decent company.
Makes perfect sense to me AlexLothos, someday I do want a Spider-man statue for my own Marvel collection and a Mary Jane too, but I'm not into collecting villains.

Still, the temptation from Symbiote Spider-man is there, the pose and sculpt is excellent, which is probably why I keep looking at him here.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Rock on! Yeah, a custom group did a great Mary Jane along with other Spider-universe ladies. I wish I had the latitude to jump on those.

You totally have time to consider getting this Symbiote Spider-man. It will probably be a while before he sells out, and even if he does you could still get him on the secondary market. If you want to take the plunge, buy him and see him in person. If he isn't for you, Sideshow seems to be good about returns and refunds!

I'm not as big fan of spidey to get 1/4 scale statue of him. That's what i tought. And here i am, burnt all reward points plus black friday deal to order him. Dark mood of the statue fits perfectly with my collection theme. On pictures and movies he looks fantastic. Hoping for the same effect in person.
One of the best sculptures SS delivered.

I might consider him in the future, think I just need a regular Spider-man 1/4 scale to wow me first. There have been so many Spider-man statues, and while he is my favorite character, none have really grabbed my attention as must have. (a few temptations though)
