“Welcome to my neighborhood, Spider-Man! Would you be my... could you be my... neighbor?”
How do you begin to describe Venom? He’s part antagonist, part anti-hero. He’s part man, part monster. He’s one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes, but he’s also sometimes a grudging and reluctant ally. Whatever he is, Venom’s larger than life personality and twisted appearance has made him incredibly popular with many of the artists and designers here at Sideshow - so for us, adding him to our rogues gallery has been a true labor of love!
There’s no denying this all new Premium Format™ Figure is BIG!
Standing 24” high, this sculpture has a sense of scale and a drama that has to be seen “in the flesh” to be truly appreciated.
Every aspect of our Venom figure has been given the utmost care and attention, offering many small references and talking points to delight even the most devoted Marvel fan, while still providing a striking and attention grabbing museum-quality piece that will be sure to be stand out in any collection.
Venom is portrayed in a classic Spider-Man-like pose, making his way through the rooftops of the concrete jungle with deceptive ease and grace despite his massive bulk. His one hand barely brushes a concrete outcrop as he flies by, but in that split second his symbiote tendrils bite deep providing him with a solid purchase.
Every inch of his giant physique has been expertly sculpted with our signature “hyper-realistic” approach; from the rich texturing on his skin to his eerie pearlescent eyes, his gross glistening wet tongue to the tiny sections of puckered flesh on his hands that stand ready to shoot webbing at any second.
Described by our team as a “modern monster incarnation of Venom” this Premium Format™ Figure has the characteristic split-face and leering grin that makes Venom the stuff of nightmares. His misshapen eyes, jagged fangs and oversized undulating tongue giving him an even more demonic appearance and perfectly captures the chaotic side of this sentient alien parasite and his human host.
In keeping with the style of our other Spider-Man Premium Format™
pieces (The Amazing Spider-Man
, Green Goblin
, Black Cat
) our Venom figure features a dramatic “exploding” base which depicts a frozen snapshot in time during an epic battle.
Smoke, debris, and twisted metal combine with structural classical Roman elements that evoke parts of the New York skyline.
Eagle-eyed collectors will even notice that the Roman numerals on the base that give a subtle nod to our most die-hard Spidey fans!
Not only is this Premium Format™ Figure a fine addition to any Marvel collection, but it’s also our tribute to an awesome comic book character, designed and crafted by genuine fans.
The Sideshow Exclusive version features an alternative character portrait with larger eyes, smoother features, smaller more even teeth and a shorter tongue, all of which combine to show a “classic Venom” more akin to his earlier comic book incarnations.
