Spidey and His Amazing Friends - GHOST-SPIDER!

Disney Jr - Spidey and His Amazing Friends - Ghost-Spider - Hasbro 2021

It's been a long time since there's been an excited preschool Marvel line. The Super Hero Squad line was amazing, but it petered out back in 2013. The follow-up Super Hero Adventures line finally had articulation, but the character assortment was dismal. It was year after year of the same characters with slightly modified decos - and the female inclusion was predictably lacking: only two different Black Widows and a Spider-Gwen. But then this surprise Spidey and His Amazing Friends line appeared in stores out of nowhere and there were three ladies right off the bat. The scale is a lot larger than previous efforts and the designs have a very "animated" quality to them, but they are a ton of fun. The show premiered on Disney+ in early August and is already renewed for a second season. They pretty much made toys for all the costumed characters (except Rhino) already, so I'm curious to see new heroes and villains next year. I would die if they would include Firestar. Let's check out Ghost-Spider below!

The single-packed version of Ghost-Spider comes with a "web-wing" accessory that clips around her waist. 
The versions of Ghost-Spider that come in the multipacks and vehicle sets to not have these wings.

Ghost-Spider has a swivel head, hinge-and-swivel shoulders, and swivel legs 
(the legs are a single piece and move in unison).

This Ghost-Spider figure is available in a handful of ways. Below are two multi-packs that I've purchased. She is also included in at least two vehicle sets. Note that only the single-pack figure comes with the web-wing accessory.

Another version of Ghost-Spider was released in the Hero Reveal line.
These 2-Packs contain one standard figure and one figure with a "Flip Up" mask reveal feature.

Although the mask feature is referred to as "flip up", it technically "flips down" when her Left leg is squeezed toward the Right. Squeezing the legs temporarily lowers her mask and raises her Right arm.

Here is Ghost-Spider with her pack-mate Black Panther. He doesn't have the Hero Reveal feature.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the standard release Ghost-Spider with the Hero Reveal version.

And here are the three Spidey ladies so far: Doc Ock, Ghost-Spider, and Ms. Marvel.

And here is Ghost-Spider with a handful a recent figure for scale: Rita Repulsa, An-Yu, and the Imaginext Witch.
