The Hasbro toy company, which owns Marvel, has been keeping a tight wrap on the item, but did announce this morning that the $10 Mr. Potato Head Spider Spud will be available March 24. It will contain 12 body parts, including webs, a Spidey leotard and parts for changing back into "Peter Parker Potato."
The toy is to be revealed at the American International Toy Fair in New York City next week.
The Spider Spud, as it is called, is part of Hasbro's ramp-up of toy releases for Spider-Man 3.
Other toys in the lineup include action figures (one of them shown here), web blasters (giant water pistols), a Spider-Man version of the music dancing I-Dog called "Spi-Dog," and a Super Pal Superman stuffed toy for toddlers.
