Spider-Man: Alfred Molina's Doc Ock Gets A Hot Toys Figure (But Fans HATE It)

l intro 1694224611

Having appeared in 2004’s “Spider-Man 2” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” Alfred Molina’s take on Doctor Octopus has seen his fair share of merchandise over the years. Specifically in the realm of action figures, his first few came in the Toy Biz line dedicated to the former film, with 6 and 12-inch versions available for fans to add to their collections. Years later, the 6-inch version was rereleased alongside a new 5-inch one by Hasbro as part of the “Spider-Man 3” toy line, which also served to commemorate the entire “Spider-Man” trilogy from director Sam Raimi.

Unfortunately, collectors won’t have the easiest time getting ahold of these older pieces. With Molina’s return to the Doc Ock role, these long out-of-production figures have increased dramatically in demand and price on the secondary market, but fret not. “No Way Home” has prompted companies, such as the aforementioned Hot Toys, to bring merch of the character back out. For instance, Funko has put out a few different versions of Doc Ock in Pop! form since the film released, and at San Diego Comic-Con 2023, Hasbro teased that a “No Way Home” Doc Ock is coming to the Marvel Legends line (via u/FlorinMJ on Reddit).

Many would argue that Hot Toys is the premier collectible action figure line out there, but if the poor head sculpt and price tag keep you from cracking open your wallet, you can get some Alfred Molina Doc Ock representation on your Marvel shelf in other ways.
