Good stuff!

I personally like how Soccer Spidey suddenly develops a decidedly ethnic complexion.... LOL

Beautiful

This is really beautiful. This is the kind of thing I expect artists to create. Spider-man as golfer would easily go for $500 at an auction.

Not that you'd ever consider parting with such a masterpiece.

Greatest toy ever

I can't believe there isn't an ice hockey version, though. I need to see Spidey on skates..

I also think the body might

I also think the body might be Mankind,because I seem to remember a friend having a Mankind figure with a similar "blowing to the side" necktie.
Am I the only one noticing how strange Spidey's "mouth" area looks? He's missing some of his web lines,and it's oddly distracting.

I think I brought this up during one of the Stickam chats,but when I worked at KB we had a Spidey who was dressed for fly fishing. I guess if he fished while in his normal civilian idenity,the vengeful fish would have given Aunt May lead poisoning or something.
The scary part is that it wasn't a bootleg. People forget this,but before movies like Blade and X-Men started coming out and setting the world on fire,Marvel was pretty damn close to bankruptcy,and as long as money was coming in from the toymakers,they didn't ask too many questions.

Kidnicky's right: I

Kidnicky's right: I distinctly remember seeing this line in KB and Toys R Us back in high school. The only toys on the back of that package that were never official toys are the ones NOT in the boxes. The rest are all direct swipes of official toys, crazy as they are.

Spidey with boxing gloves kind of looks like Strong Bad.

They appear to be bootlegs of the Spider-man "Adventure Hero" line from 2001.
