'The Amazing Spider-Man' Toy Images Reveal Spoilers & Another Lizard Look

For quite a long time, Sony was doing a tremendous job of keeping the appearance of the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man under lock and key.  As we get closer and closer to the Spider-Man reboot's July release, though, it simply becomes impossible to keep scaly bad guy the Lizard so secret anymore, thanks to the vast amount of merchandising tie-ins that virtually ensure leaks.  A month ago to the day, the first online look at the Lizard's ugly mug showed up in the form of a PEZ dispenser, and now some more The Amazing Spider-Man toys have given another, better peek at what Rhys Ifans will transform into over the course of the film.  That's not all though, because a host of other images from Spider-Man-oriented toys include one that confirms a longtime story rumor and naturally constitutes a spoiler.

Okay, each and every image that follows is courtesy of the good folks over at Idle Hands.  The first is of some sort of remote-thingamajig.  What the toy actually does is less important than the green face that adorns it.  That's the Lizard, all right, matching the footage shown at Comic-Con back in July.

And now, for the spoiler.  The Lego-like MEGABloks sets recreating action scenes from the reboot include this specific set, called, "Oscorp Tower FX Battle."  We already knew that Dr. Curt Connors works for Oscorp, as did Peter Parker's father, so it's no surprise that the film might involve some action in such a setting.  The real spoiler is over on the right side in the listing of included figurines. 

That "SWAT Lizard" fellow confirms a rumor that originated at Big Fanboy and made the rounds almost a year ago.  Specifically, the unconfirmed-until-now rumor asserted that Connors transforms an entire SWAT team into lizardy henchmen with which Spidey must do battle.  So expect to see that go down.  Anyways, that's the end of the spoiler.

And now, images of MEGABloks sets, the bad guy and the wall-crawler on sweet-ass four wheelers, and an exceedingly flexible Spider-Man action figure.

Andrew Garfield plays the newly-rebooted Peter Parker in this redone origin story, with Emma Stone as his main squeeze Gwen Stacy.  Denis Leary appears as Gwen's law-and-order dad, George Stacy, with Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz showing up as the previously unseen Parker parents.  Sally Field and Martin Sheen play Aunt May and Uncle Ben, while the rest of the supporting cast includes Chris Zylka, C. Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan,Annie Parisse, and Amber Stevens.

Some Rogue 3D Eyewear would compliment the first web-slinging 3D film, The Amazing Spider-Man, when it arrives in theaters on July 3, 2012.
