Background

The Green Goblin is one of Spider-man’s most famous and long-running enemies, making his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #14 in July 1964. The Goblin’s real identity is Norman Osborne, a megalomaniacal industrialist whose son Harry is the best friend of Peter Parker.

After an accident involving an experimental serum gives Osborne increased strength, speed and intelligence, along with turning him insane, he takes on the persona of the Green Goblin, a nightmare from his childhood.

Using advanced technology such as a rocket-powered glider and hallucinogenic chemical bombs he attempts to take over the city, and comes in constant conflict with Spiderman in the process.

Figure design and appearance

The figure is made to the Select 7” scale, but due to its crouching stance stands 5” tall. It has 12 points of articulation, at the neck, shoulders, gloves, wrists, waist, hips, boots and ankles, and comes complete with a Goblin Glider which the figure is designed to stand on using foot pegs to hold it in place.

In addition, the Green Goblin comes with a Pumpkin bomb which can be held in the figure’s left hand, and a purple satchel which can be slung over its shoulder. It also comes with a 4” inch stand on which the glider can stand, and an additional figure in the form of Peter Parker.

The figure is based on the cover artwork of The Amazing Spider-Man

39, in which the Green Goblin discovers Spider-Man’s true identity and

kidnaps him. The Peter Parker figure is depicted as tied up, wearing ripped green trousers and a white shirt which [partially reveal his Spider-Man suit beneath.

The figure is attached to a length of soft rope, which can be suspended beneath the Goblin Glider and held by the Green Goblin figure in its right hand.
