    The Lizard on that pic with the remote looks like a slightly updated Gorn circa TOS.
    I need more, not ready to call it yet but so far I'm not impressed with what I'm seeing for Lizard.

    LOL, what the hell is Megablocks? Did LEGO forget to put a patent on it?

    Kind of reminds me of the Goombas from the Super Mario Bros movie

    ^ Yeah, I've heard a few people say that.

    Will Spiderman build a cannon to defeat the lizard?

    It's a more simplistic version of LEGO for kids

    LOL, when I was a kid, LEGO wasn't that complicated.

    Not feeling the Lizard design either however that being said he does look like the original version of the character drawn by Ditko which was pretty simple. I think fans have been expecting to see the McFarland/Fox Animated Series version. Perhaps the Lizard will "evolve".

    Dude, Mega Bloks have been around since the 60s. This is hardly a new product.

    This movie would be more interesting if the Lizard was the hero and Spider-Man was the villain.

    I keep wondering if all of this stuff is really supposed to getting revealed through tie-ins? You'd think they want to save it for officially released promo images and trailers.

    I don't really think we should be making a big deal about the toy design. Toy designs are always slightly off from the real thing for whatever reason. In many cases it is the reason why I've not bought a lot of film action figure tie-ins and what not.

    It happens all the time. Toy Story 3 lego sets revealed the main villain. Spider-man 2 lego sets gave away some of the action sequences.

    When the "Dick Tracy" movie came out in the late 80s the toy line spoiled that Madonna's character was the main villain The Blank.

    Yeah, though that Blank action figure wasn't available in the USA or at least, was very, very hard to find.

    I've got to agree with that. The novelty of seeing those drawings "brought to life" and the really limited storytelling of the well-known superhero books replicated in movie scripts has really worn off. Hollywood needs to get to the next thing.
