The Sinister Six

Screenshot_2017-04-14-09-20-24The Sinister Six first appeared in Spider-man Annual #1. The “team” formed after Doctor Octopus got out of jail, and frustrated by his losses to Spider-man, called upon every villain he knew to get help in defeating him. The only ones to respond were Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Electro, Vulture and Sandman.

Naturally they were all defeated in that same issue, because in those days they could tell a story and wrap it up in the same issue.

SPIDER-MAN SINISTER 6 3.75-Inch Amazon Exc - Vintage pkgHasbro revealed during Toyfair 2017 a box set featuring all six characters and Spider-man in the 3.75″ scale. This set is currently up for preorder exclusively on Amazon.

This is a neat set that I would be interested in if it was in the six-inch scale. If it was in the six-inch scale, that would mean we would be getting a Doctor Octopus, Comic Vulture and Mysterio in this scale. Hopefully we get them soon. Usually when they make a figure in the smaller scale first, the larger scale comes later.
