We are really excited about this Green Goblin action figure guide we have today. So excited, we may even swig back a bit of the Goblin Formula to get in the spirit of things.

Not too long ago we looked at the best Spider-Man puzzles and old Gobby features on more than a few of them.

There are a ton of different Green Goblin figures to choose from and here we have a great selection of them, many of which some members of the Geek’s Oasis office have in their own collections!

He is one of the best villains that Spider-Man has and we are pumped to check out some of his most epic figures with you today.

We've been working hard to find the coolest products for you that will make your life easier and more fun. Each product has been independently selected by our editors. Geek's Oasis may collect a share of sales from the links on this page if you decide to buy something - that's how we stay in business. Clicking the links will not add any cost to you. Hope you enjoy this post!

Putting In A Call To Harry’s Dad!

No, we did not ask Harry to call his dad to help us find the best Green Goblin action figure. Although, the connections he has at Oscorp may have come in handy.

Anyway, we had a good look at the different Green Goblin action figures out there and decided to pick some that we personally have and others that we wish we did have!

Marvel Legends Retro Green Goblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

We love the Retro Marvel Legends series from Hasbro and it is actually one of the best things that they have done in recent years.

We love the green color scheme of the carding here and for those that like to display their action figures loose, he comes with his Glider for him to stand on.

If you have a collection of these Retro Marvel Legends, this 100 percent has to be in it! If you do not, well, we could not think of a cooler one than this to start a collection with.

While it is Hasbro that makes these figures, Hasbro put the Kenner logo on the packaging. Granted, Kenner never made Marvel figures back in the 80s, but we think this is so cool and just adds to the retro charm of this collection.

Good To Know

  • Scale: 3 ¾ inch
  • Line: Hasbro Marvel Legends Retro
  • This line has a whole bunch of Spider-Man’s classic villains which look so cool when displayed together.

Diamond Select Green Goblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

We are huge fans of the Diamond Select series of figures, they make all kinds of things such as Marvel large-scale figures which is why we are looking at this awesome Green Goblin figure.

This walks the line between being a Green Goblin action figure and being a statue. His face looks so crazy and menacing, you just know that he is planning on throwing a pumpkin bomb at something.

He comes with his classic glider and the figure is fully articulated so you can display him in all kinds of poses. For the price, this is one very high-end and impressive action figure.

Good To Know

  • Scale: 7 inch (not including base or glider)
  • Line: Marvel Diamon Select
  • Diamon Select makes some of the most detailed Marvel action figures and this one is very cool!
  • A large-scale figure and multiple points of articulation

Funko Pop Spider-Man: No Way Home Green Goblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

We recently looked at the best Boba Fett action figures and it was kind of crazy that no Funko Pops “popped” up on that list!

Spider-Man: No Way Home was such an awesome movie and Willem Defoe as Green Goblin was even more awesome than he was in the original Spider-Man movie all the way back in 2002!

We love how his tattered purple hoodie gives him that classic Green Goblin look. You may want to take this one out of the box as he is standing on his glider which is awesome.

Did you know that the reason all Marvel and Star Wars Funko Pops are bobbleheads is because of a licensing issue? If they did not have the bobblehead feature, they would technically be classed as an “action figure” and this would cause problems with Hasbro who currently have the master license for Marvel and Star Wars action figures!

Good To Know

  • Scale: 4.6 inches tall (including glider)
  • Line: Funk Pop: Spider-Man: No Way Home
  • As well as this one here, Funko also have another Pop in this series where he is wearing the mask and suit from Spider-Man 2002, they would make for a great set!

Spider-Man Marvel Legends Retro: Hobgoblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

Hasbro also has a retro line based on the awesome Spider-Man The Animated Series from the 90s. But…. Isn’t this supposed to be a guide looking for the best Green Goblin action figure?

Well, yes, but hear us out here. You see, other Spider-Man figures especially Hobgoblin and Green Goblin go hand in hand if you ask us, and his inclusion in the Spider-Man: The Animated Series from the 90s turned it to be one of the most exciting stories.

This is such a cool figure, from the 90s-style packaging to the pic appearance of the figure itself. You cannot have The Green Goblin without The Hobgoblin and this is one of the best Hobgoblin action figures Hasbro has produced.

It was kind of strange that in the Spider-Man: The Animated Series from the 90s they introduced The Hobgoblin before The Green Goblin, but even though producer John Semper wanted Green Goblin first he was told no! The reason he was told no was that the toy line was already deep in development and there was a Hobgoblin toy in one of the first waves! That is the real reason why the show had to have Hobgoblin before Green Goblin, see toys do make the world go round!

Good To Know

  • Scale: 6 inch
  • Line: Hasbro Spider-Man The Animated Series Retro
  • This whole line is amazing, but with the packaging being such a great part of the presentation, we would not blame you if you bought one to open and one to keep on card!

Schleich Marvel Green Goblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

How can you not love what Schleich has done since they acquired the Marvel license? Now, you could debate the appearance of this on a Green Goblin toy list as technically, this is kind of more of a statue.

However, a Geek’s Oasis team member has this on their desk so we know firsthand how amazing this is. The sculpting on this figure and the hand-painted finish are just amazing, especially for the asking price.

We love the pose too as he looks like he is just about to throw a pumpkin bomb on the streets of New York City, we hope our favorite Web-Head can get there on time!

Good To Know

  • Scale: 5 inches
  • Line: Schleich Marvel Collection
  • These figures are numbered on the box which makes them even more collectible! Green Goblin here is number 9 in the Marvel collection.

Diamon Select Green Goblin vs Spider-Man

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

We know that we already have a Green Goblin action figure from Diamon Select on this list, but this one is so different we had to include it. This is great as it is two in one.

You not only get a very imposing-looking Green Goblin standing on his glider. He has somehow captured Peter Parker and is now holding him high above the city! Good versus evil.

This is so cool and while it looks like a statue, it has articulation so you can pose it just the way you want (imagine wall-crawling action or web-slinging battles).

This would make a very cool centerpiece in any Spider-Man Marvel Universe action figure collection!

Diamon Select released this figure nearly 20 years ago all the way back in 2004. However, it was so popular and people talked about it so much that they re-released it so a whole bunch of new fans could enjoy it.

Good To Know

  • Scale: 7 inches (actual figure)
  • Line: Marvel Diamond Select
  • If there is something familiar about this there is a good reason for that. This is actually based on the cover of Spider-Man issue number, 39.

Funko Pop: Into the Spider-Verse Green Goblin

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

While we always will have a preference for the more classic-looking Green Goblin. We must say that there is something cool about when he is monstrous like in the Ultimate Spider-Man series or in the case of this Funko Pop here, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which is one of the greatest Spider-Man movies ever made.

This captures the monster Green Goblin perfectly and, in all honesty, it is one of the more eye-catching figures from this series. It's great if you want a non-classic-looking Green Goblin action figure addition to your Spider-Man figures-inspired collection.

Good To Know

  • Scale: 3 ¾ inch (as he is crouching)
  • Line: Funko Pop: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse
  • If you have the shelf or floor space, Funk also makes one of their “Super Sized 10-inch Pop” figures based on this Green Goblin.

FAQs About Green Goblin Action Figures

Have a few questions about how to find the best Green Goblin action? We can help you with that. We even know a guy at Oscorp that can score us some Goblin Formula too, but keep that just between us.

Why no Marvel Legends?

We looked at a couple of Marvel Titan Hero figures and they are awesome, but many of you may be wondering why we have no 6-inch Marvel Legends Green Goblin figures on here. 

There have been a few 6-inch Green Goblin Marvel Legends figures, but as of us writing this guide, they were in a few series back and they are now sought after on the secondary market and go for quite a bit of money! 

With Green Goblin being such a marquee character, we would wager there will be far more Green Goblin figures in the Marvel Legends line, sooner than later!

What about classic figures?

One of the best things about a character like The Green Goblin is that he has been getting action figures regularly for years. While some of his more recent Marvel Legends go for a considerable amount of money, there are many other classic Green Goblin figures such as those from Toy Biz based on the classic animated series to name a specific type. While there are some pricey ones out there, others can be found quite easily and are rather inexpensive as well.

One Last Dose Of Goblin Formula Before You Go!

We have had so much fun trying to find the best Green Goblin action figure with you that we have been Willem Defoe maniacal laughing all the way through this guide.

The purple and green color scheme featuring the classic-inspired design that most of his figures have are just so eye-catching that no matter how large your Marvel figure collection is, Green Goblin is always going to be a character that stands out!

Thanks for coming on this journey with us today, we hope that we have led you to your next awesome action figure and away from any villainous shenanigans the Green Goblin and the Sinister Six may get you involved with!

Stay tuned - we'll be looking at some cool and mighty superheroes in a form of action figures soon!

If you're into some big web-swinging action with a Spider-man puzzle with 10.000 pieces, then you're in the wrong place... However, we have looked at Spider-Man puzzles with 400, 500, and even 1.000 pieces before, so why not check them out too?

Thanks for stopping by!
