Spider-man line 4" Lizard

Hey toy-fans ! This is your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man ! Bet you're wondering why I'm here and how I got myself tangled in such a situation. Allow me to start from the begining.  

A couple of days ago, I came across an ad to check out some new figures. I was thinking how hard could it be and so I took the job. I could use the extra cash. I was paid up front and given an address to go to for my first assignment. 

When I arrived, I couldn't help but feel like I've been here before. I turned my attention to the carded figure. Whoa ! Its the Lizard ! What's he doing here !?! Last I heard he accepted a movie role. I whipped out my camera and snapped some shots. I must say that was a really nice picture of me on the package. Did I take that ? The other thing that struck me were the words "poseable tail". Wow ! That is a cool feature.


Uh-oh ! Spider-sense tingling ! The packaging mysteriously disappeared. The Lizard seemed frozen, he just stood there. He's just as gruesome as I remembered. Scaly as ever. Is that blood on the side of his mouth ? Hope he just bit into a tin of paint or something. Wonder if Doc Connors has any new lab coats, the one he's wearing is just filthy, tattered and torn. Nice shirt though. His pants looked oddly clean. Wonder if he and the Hulk exchange fashion tips.   

Movement ! His tail started spinning round and round. Now I understood the "poseable tail".

The Lizard slowly turned his head, looking around. Suddenly, he bolted for the sewer. I  followed of course, yours truly had to keep him out of trouble.

He seemed to know where he was going. When I caught up with him, he was wrestling with a croc like creature. Something was wrong ! The Lizard was just swinging his arms. Seemed like he could only move his shoulders and elbows.  

The croc got the upper hand. He ripped off the Lizard's tail !

I had to intervene ! The croc snarled at me and fled !

I went to check on the Lizard. He was still my friend. Should have known better than to let my guard down. While bent and seemingly resting, he slowly reached for his ripped off tail.

Which brings us to where we are now. He wrapped his tail around me, squeezing the life out of me. I wiggled a hand free and punched him in the mouth.

I broke free but I was about to be whipped. Webbing in his eyes should buy me some time.

I moved quickly, thinking of how I could trap him. What the ... !?! Did he just re-attach his tail !?!

Ooooommmff !

What happened ? My head... I must be seeing things... Are these guys are teaming up !?! Hmmm, they look about the same height... Snap out of it Spidey ! How are you going to get out of this !?!
