At San Diego Comic-Con, Funko unveiled an all-new line of Marvel Hikari Sofubi figures, including a range of different Spider-Man colorways, like metallic, gold, glow in the dark, translucent, and more. The collection was on display (and you can read more about the display on The Blot Says), but little else — including price or release dates — were known about the figures.

Until today, when Funko revealed the first piece of the collection: a Hikari Premium Blaze Spider-Man.

The figure it already up for pre-order on Entertainment Earth, for $79.99, and will ship in October.

The premium figure stands over 10″ tall, making it the largest Funko Hilari figure release to date. Normal figures stand somewhere around 6.5″ inches, which also explains the price hike from normal figures, which run only around $49.99. The design is based on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and according to the product page on EE, “has a sleek design with each color transitioning over a clear glitter vinyl”.

The figure is limited to 1,500 pieces, and is likely to sell out before the official release in October, so pre-order yours now.
