“FACE IT, TIGER… YOU JUST HIT THE JACKPOT!”
XM Studios is excited to present our next Marvel Premium Collectibles series statue, Mary Jane & Spider-Man! The spectacular swinging lovebirds are immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:4 scale cold-cast porcelain. Each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the highest possible quality finish. Spidey isn’t just all about action; we love him because despite his daily struggles and life pressure, Spidey remains the good guy with great humor. And any Spidey fan knows Peter Parker isn’t complete without Mary Jane Watson! The low ES of 388 features not one, but two iconic comics characters swinging away from the daily bugle, in an unique perspective sculpt that emphasizes the depth yet keeping the piece space-friendly.
Mary Jane loved her visits with her Aunt Anna Watson, though one downside was that Anna and her neighbor May Parker were always trying to get Mary Jane together with May’s nephew, Peter. Mary Jane was thirteen when she first laid eyes on Peter, aged fourteen. Peter had just started high school, and through her window Mary Jane saw a serious-looking bookworm – kind of cute, in a nerdy sort of way. Their respective aunts were always keen to arrange dates between the Peter and Mary, eventually succeeding many years later. Peter, expecting a dowdy girl, was stunned by Mary Jane’s beauty and exuberant charm. Mary Jane remembered a bookish, bespectacled nerd, and never imagined the confident young college student Peter had become. With the death of Gwen Stacy and Norman Osborn, Mary Jane’s friendship with Peter remained true, and she comforted him through his loss. Over time, Peter began to realise that there was more to Mary Jane than the “party girl” persona she affected. Following a battle between Spider-Man and the Puma, Mary-Jane revealed to Peter that she knew that he was Spider-Man. Since his mask was now gone, she removed hers, and told Peter about the other side of Mary Jane, and her own difficult past. In their shared honesty, the two realised how close they had become in their lives. A few months later, Peter proposed once more, and was accepted. Mary Jane Watson was the guiding light in Peter Parker’s life, and their love had overcome countless obstacles.
