Venom the madness identifying unknown variant?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

This is my first post and its a bit of a funny one.

There are, to my knowledge, three variants of Venom the Madness from the Planet of the Symbiotes series; the black, the green, and the transparent yellow.

I picked up this figure second hand (he's a little worse for wear) but he doesnt seem to be ANY of these variants.

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Well, if you managed to pick that up over in Canada or up north in the US, or even in Japan where Toy Biz outsourced some of their producion facilities then that would make sense. What you have right there is more of a filler, rather than production error, of the Canadian exclusive Spider-Man 2000 vs. Venom the Madness figure from the Canadian Spider-Man 2000 toy line. The honey-colored translucent Venom that was supposed to be there was a result of an over-abundance of the material Toy Biz had to create the Swarm figure from 1997, but when material for the honey translucent was gone with literally a handful of Spider-Man 2000 toys left to package they simply cast a Yellow colored, solid Venom toy to compensate. As a result, you're the proud owner of one out of who knows how many production fillers.
