Spider Warrior Star Mite

5.0/5 rating (1 votes)


This is the super rare Spider Warrior toy issued under the Star Mites toy line.  This is from Series Two of the toy line.  Series One was made by Shinsei, and these "UFO Commander 7 Series" toys were issued in the USA as Star Mites toys.  Series Two was manufactured by Empire Toys, and they featured some new and crazy toy designs.  While some of the toys within this new series are pretty common (e.g., Mars, Thor, and Zeus), the rest are quite rare.  In all the years I've been looking for these, I have only seen this toy for sale a handful of times.  

The original design for this toy was to feature an Astekaizer head (a toy manufactured by Yonezawa).  However, I don't believe that this was ever manufactured (too bad - I much prefer this prototype), although the box art all shows this design.  The new head features some sort of two-faced alien hippopotimus.  The eyes can rotate, and the head can spin in circles.  There are other differences in the actual design from the graphics, such as the feet.
