Marvel’s Shocker and Spider-Man 3.75 2-Pack
It’s 2017 and we are still getting amazing Marvel 3.75 inch figures. In fact, some of the most amazing to grace the line. Not only that, but they are actually on retail shelves! I went to a Target this weekend, and found what I am about to share with you.

As part of Hasbro’s 2017 Marvel Legends 3.75″ line, they are releasing several 2-packs, four in fact, 3 movie based, one comic based. As you will see below, the Spider-Man / Shocker combo is comic based. The others on shelves, movie versions of Doctor Strange and Astral Doctor Strange, Spider-man and Vulture, and Star-Lord and Yondu. I’ve yet to encounter the others in real life outside of conventions, but my radar is up and I’m looking so I can bring them to you! For now, let’s check out what is likely to be the go to, de-facto Spider-Man in your collection for years to come, and a massive upgrade to the only other 3.75″ Shocker.
