Let there be... Venom. A new version of Spider-Man's most dangerous foe is joining Hasbro's popular Marvel Legends toy line, and Yahoo Entertainment has your exclusive first look. This 6-inch figure is debuting at Hasbro's virtual 2021 PulseCon in the fall, which is also when Venom: Let There Be Carnage — the sequel to the 2018 hit starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and his symbiote-enhanced alter ego — arrives in theaters.
Retailing for $31.49, the newest Marvel Legends Venom figure isn't based on Hardy's interpretation. Instead, the Marvel Legends crew took their inspiration from the popular 1990s Spider-Man animated series, which featured storylines adapted directly from the Marvel comic books — including Venom's introduction. (The Simpsons star Hank Azaria voiced the character during the show's five-season run.)
As with all of the figure in the Marvel Legends line, Venom boasts multiple points of articulation and premium design elements. Take a gander at his signature toothy (and tongue-y) smile to see how much detail and character went into the sculpt.
Venom and Spidey's decades-old rivalry will soon continue on the big screen as well. Let There Be Carnage opens in multiplexes on Sept. 24, three months before Tom Holland's wall-crawler swings back into theaters on Christmas Day in the trilogy-capping Spider-Man: No Way Home. And rumor has it that No Way Home will feature cameo appearances from friends and foes across the Spider-verse. Could that mean a Hardy-Holland brawl? We're positively grinning at the thought.
