2017 is primed to be a big year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon be joined on ABC by The Inhumans, and the final member of The Defenders will arrive next month when Iron Fist debuts on Netflix. In theaters, Marvel will be releasing an unprecedented three films in one year with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, and the first Spidey movie set in the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film will see him team up with Iron Man, just like they have many times in the comics.
It is known that Peter will also have to deal with a "relevant" Vulture and a "smug" Flash Thompson, so any help he gets will be greatly appreciated. Among the many updates over the past year, the most recent is that one of the directors previously in the running to helm the film could still be involved in the franchise's future. It's an exciting time to be a Spider-Man fan, as the increased focus on the Wall Crawler also means a lot more merchandise related to the superhero and his film.
The latest batch of toys promoting the film were just unveiled by Funko as part of their Pop! vinyl line. As shown by Funko (via Heroic Hollywood), we have our first look at the figures, which feature multiple versions of Spidey/Peter, plus his foe the Vulture. Check them out in the gallery below.

Along with the costume Tony Stark made, there's also Peter's homemade version which was teased in Civil War. Hopefully, a flashback will show the full thing, as it's been featured in the recent Hasbro line as well. There's also one of Peter out of costume, plus the Vulture all decked out. Then there's a plush, some Doorbz, and a keychain version. Most intrgiuing, is another look at Iron Man's Ultimates-inspired armor that was seen in the Legends toy line release. It looks like changing costumes will be something of a theme for the film.
Funko has been churning out their pop culture figures lately. Just today, the company provided a look at the concepts for a line of Justice League figures. There have also been lines for Ghost in the Shell and Rick & Morty. For collectors of these adorable vinyls, it's safe to assume just about any new movie or TV release these days will come with a Funko line. These Spider-Man figures will certainly be a desirable addition to any collection. Now all we need is a new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
