I'm betting Lizard is already going to be in my top 5 for the 2022.

Lizard looks really great, I love that John Romita Sr. styled classic head they gave him. I'm definitely gonna display him that way. More than anything, I hope he'll be easy to get.

Wonder if they made the Lizard's lower body / ripped pants compatible with the Jackyl torso? Pretty much the core components for a Werewolf by Night

As expected, looks like a figure of the year contender.

Really excited for this one.

I didn't catch if there's a calf swivel hidden by the pants but if there is...

He definitely has a calf swivel, which was totally unexpected, but smart. I'm hopeful we'll see more characters like those you mentioned.

Awesome. I am somewhat regretting selling a chunk of what I had - will be expensive to recollect, but at least I can snag this guy for retail this summer.

I would like an TAS homage Doc Ock, Spider Slayer and CARDIAC......I thought he would have a figure by now.

That looks absolutely stellar. Love the classic head and the slightly goofy looking splayed hands and feet - such a nice change to the usual razor sharp claws. It all just screams classic Romita goodness. And the calf joint hidden under the torn trousers definitely puts Vermin or Werewolf by Night on the table.

The original Spider-Man Classics Lizard was one of the first 6” figures I ever bought, and I think I’ve picked up nigh on every subsequent one. Nothing ever entirely scratched that itch for a perfect classic Connors. But this figure nails it so hard. It’s amazing ticking a character off the wish list so emphatically.

The Retro Spidey line might be my favourite thing Hasbro has ever done. Their strike rate with the classic villains is crazy.

I only half wanted a classic Lizard, but wow, if they're going to do THAT fantastic a job then I want him NOW! :D

Anyone know why bendy wire parts always have little holes cut into the plastic every few inches? I've now seen bendy wire parts from several different companies and they ALL use those holes.
