Carnage is back in town, and this time he’s out for more than just blood. So, what’s a Spider-Man to do, when even the police won’t lend him hand?
Yep, you guessed it – he has to turn to another of his most deadly enemies for help – Venom!
Don’t miss all the spine-tingling action in a tale that could only be called “Frenemies!” Sure, it could have been called something else, but “Spider-Man vs. Carnage, with some help from Venom!” just doesn’t roll off the tongue. 😀
As a thank you for hitting 100K followers on the Sideshow Facebook page, they are offering free shipping on a bunch of products, including some from Hot Toys, Medicom, Square Enix, their own stuff, and more. When combined with their May the 4th $25 gift card, which is still redeemable and good through May 31st, there’s a whole bunch of options up for grabs.
Now that I’ve ventured into the Dark Side with Star Wars 1/6 with the upcoming premium Darth Vader, Boba Fett is high on my list of bounties. So on second thought, don’t enter, so I can win this for myself! The shadow of greed, that is.

Medicom has had modest success with its 1/6 scale Real Action Hero line but they are now looking to turn the 1/12 scale on its head with its new MAFEX line of action figures, as highlighted in this blog post at AmiAmi.com. Featuring super-articulation, great sculpts, and accessories, these figures promise to be the best in class in 6 inches (6.3 inches to be precise) – sorry Hasbro and Mattel! Of course these are going to be import figures only, for those of us in the US – so you shouldn’t be expecting mass market action figure prices either.
These are available to pre-order now on the AmiAmi.com site:
