With only 12 possible vinylmations, it must have been hard for vinylmation designer Thomas Scott to choose which Spiderman characters he wanted to represent in this Marvel Series 2 set. So far, we are aware of 11 of the 12 characters. We obviously don’t know who the chaser will be, but that doesn’t stop us from having a little fun by trying to guess who it could possibly be.
This choice seems to be a popular vote amongst vinylmation collectors. From all the villains depicted in this set, Doc Ock is surprisingly missing. I see major potential for this to be an awesome chaser. If they add actual physical tentacles on this rather than painted on tentacles, this would be one of the better chasers out there.
I was actually surprised that this vinylmation set chose Mary Jane instead of Gwen Stacy. I guess I understand that Mary Jane is a more popular character, but given the fact that Gwen Stacy is the love interest in the most recent Spiderman movies, you would think Gwen would be the first choice.
Since we already have Spiderman and Venom, why not complete the trifecta and include Carnage? Although he was not shown in any of the Hollywood movies, those familiar with the comics would go bananas seeing Carnage as the chaser. As a quick background on how awesome this would be, Spiderman actually had to team up with his enemy Venom in order to defeat Carnage.
I’ve heard this name pop up in discussions about who the chaser would be, but I personally don’t see it. In a set filled with excited characters like Spiderman and Venom, it would be odd to think that a vinylmation of an elderly lady would be the most valuable figure in the set.
I would absolutely love it if this was the chaser! Imagine a vinylmation of Peter Parker wearing glasses and holding a camera in his hands. They could even go the route of the Nerds Rock set and give Peter removable glasses.
This would also be a great choice. And why not? Stan Lee makes a random cameo in every Marvel movie, why not in a vinylmation set as well?
Dancing Peter Parker from Spiderman 3
Remember that montage in Spiderman 3 where Peter, played by Tobey Maguire, is strutting down the street and dancing? This is the scene where Peter awkwardly thinks he is super cool and starts pointing at the females around him. Oh man. This vinylmation would bring me so much joy.
If you had your pick, who would you want to see as the chaser for this set?
