- Spider-Man (Absolute Carnage) is ready for Pre-Order now! -

"XM Studios is excited to present our next 1/4 scale MARVEL Premium Collectibles series statue, Spider-Man (Absolute Carnage)! A dynamic piece depicting Spider-Man’s agility as he leaps through the door and races to escape from Carnage’s clutches. As the relentless threat inches closer, his Spider-Sense tingles, warning him of various dangers from-all-around-him. To achieve XM’s renowned quality in statue design and production, each painstakingly hand-crafted statue is meticulously hand-painted and rigorously checked for their quality order.

The symbiote tendrils morph into deadly claws and menacing blades that extend with malevolent intent as they snake and extend their reach, seeking to ensnare Spider-Man. Will his agility and wits be enough to outsmart Carnage and emerge victorious from this deadly encounter?"

Again ...spider-sense effect looks great in a comic panel, but looks terrible on a statue. Especially if the spider-sense is attached to a background object ...cause that only looks good in a small viewing angle.

Cool pose and good sculpt. Wish it was a different concept though.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Spidey looks great. Base is a mess. Spidey sense does not trigger with the symbiotes. Carnage has no spidey logo(unless it's from the recent iterations but then it's not Maximum Carnage, is it)

This is always my problem with Spidey statues. The bases are so big and/or messy that they take away from Spidey himself. Not to say the design isn't fun, but I'll continue holding out for the 1/3.

I would like a McFarlane portrait for this one.

Acc XMwebsite it is not for Europe and USA/CAN. That often means you have to pay full price ($1500) to get it.

I do like tendrils with Venom and Carnage, but the shape some of these tendrils are not the best execution imo. If carnage had so much tendrils out, he would already hit Spidey somewhere (especially the top blade).

Nice they try something diff with adding the spidey sense, but indeed does not add anything to a statue.
I like the position of Spider-Man and also the turn of the large carnage head within this statue.
