Toy car gives first look at The Lizard

Not so long ago, we flagged up a news story in which an officially-branded Pez dispenser appeared to have given the first clue to what The Amazing Spider-Man ’s interpretation of The Lizard would look like. And now, thanks to the controller for a toy car, we have an even better idea of what to expect!

A new range of radio-controlled vehicles is set to be released to tie in with next summer’s release, and one of said controllers appears to depict a very clear image of The Lizard’s scaly bonce.

Worryingly, he looks a little bit like the sort of plastic-suited villain the Power Rangers might pit themselves against, but to be fair to him, a remote controller doesn’t give much scope for scale or nuance.

In any case, it would appear that Marvel have had their thunder stolen in terms of unveiling the Lizard’s new look. Let’s hope this latest development gives them the prod required to release an official image sooner rather than later.

The Amazing Spider-Man is released in the UK on 4 July 2012. Until then, you’ll just have to make do with the toy car and as much Pez as you can stomach…
