Sideshow Collectibles J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection Gwen Stacy Polystone Statue

Gwendolyn Maxine "Gwen" Stacy is a fictional comic character who appears in books published by Marvel Comics, usually as a supporting character in those featuring Spider-Man. A college student, Gwen Stacy was originally the first true love of Peter Parker (Spider-Man) before he developed deep feelings for her friend and rival, Mary Jane Watson. (source: wiki)

And from Sideshow Collectibles comes this J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection 18-inch Gwen Stacy Polystone Statue (To Top of Head: 16-inch Height or 406.4mm)

Peter Parker's first true love is the gorgeous and brainy bombshell, Gwen Stacy. Sideshow is proud to share this one-of-a-kind design from renowned artist J. Scott Campbell. Capturing the vibrant heroine on an afternoon stroll through the rain, her knowing smile and carefree stride suggest that a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is watching over her wherever she goes.

Sideshow Collectibles had earlier previewed their J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection Mary Jane Polystone Statue (pictures HERE) so this makes it their second in the series

Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, Gwen Stacy first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #31 (December 1965).

The Green Goblin (Norman Osborn) caused Spider-Man to apparently accidentally kill Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man#121 (June 1973). Both the decision to kill Gwen and the method in which Marvel implemented it remain controversial among fans, but the death became a pivotal point in both Spider-Man’s history and in American comic books in general. Many point to Gwen's death as the end of the Silver Age of Comics

That doesn't bode well for Emma Stone who plays the role of Peter Parker / Spider-Man's love interest Gwen Stacy in the new Spider-Man films
