THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN's SPIDEY-MOBILE!!! No, For Real!

Published at: May 17, 2003, 6:20 a.m. CST









Hey folks, Harry here... God, My nephew would kill for this thing. Heh. Ok, this isn't a SPIDEY-MOBILE that will appear in the movie, I believe he just pilots a weak looking 2 wheeled sorta motorized vehicle in this flick, but you know how films cost so much? Well, this is one of the reasons why. Lookee... A custom SPIDER-MAN 2 GOLFCART for the studio lot. Isn't it sweet looking? My brother-in-law can do this sort of work, does Vinyl stuff like this all the time, I think I should get my car done up with all sorts of stylized Aint It Cool slogans and symbols... Like across the passenger side door it could read "Sell-Out" across the hood there could be a stylized BELLY. Orange and lilac hints here and there... It'd Rule! Meanwhile, here's what they did for SPIDEY...









Hey, this is JJBRWesq.  Before I go on I just wanted to say thanks for posting my Manic review a while back.  

I work at a Galpin Ford, a very large car dealership in Los Angeles, and besides getting the odd celebrity in now and again (actually, we had a rather dour Shaq in today, but I doubt either of us really cares about that), we get quite a few studio vehicles on the lot and in service .  







Well, hidden in our back lot I found what I thought was a cool little goody.  Ford made what is essentially a big-ass electric golf cart called the Think a short while back.  Due to safety reasons, they were recalled.  I found the one in the pictures tucked behind a bunch of other ones earlier today.  After a little rearranging I was able to get some pretty good shots of it.  







I checked with one of the managers and apparently we just got it in straight off the Spiderman 2 set yesterday evening, though he wouldn't or couldn't tell me where the set was.  







Just thought you guys might like to see 'em.

    by simongarth2001

    So this is how hollywood spends all that money! This is sick. That money should have been used on something more important..........like silk toilet paper for the asses of the stars! Spider shaped ball huggers for the stuntman to feel safe and secure......stupid asses!!!

    My spidey sense is tellin me somethin': Harry is gay.

    by MonkeyPenny

    I mean, reeeaallly. Down with Love? C'mon you fat bastard. This movie might be a mildly enjoyable truffle, but Matrix is a fucking porterhouse steak with grilled mushrooms and a side of skin on mashed potatoes, with a frosty pitcher of beer to wash it down with (an example more on your level). Matriz has more style and witty banter in it's little pinky than five thousand down with loves. You must've been high or something when you saw it. That or you're gay. Either way, you've once again missed the boat completely. Cause, dude, Down with Love? That "aint-cool". It's almost pathetic how silly and irresponsible your reviews are sometimes. But, fuck it, to each their own, right? Oh, and by the way, Mr. "Romantic", they used lots of wires in those shitty Shaw films, they just didn't digitally erase them. That's another thing, everyone's all ga-ga over the Shaw Brothers films, but the true martial arts fan knows that Shaw is the fucking Disney of martial arts. But, then again, I am speaking to the fat dude who prefers silly fluff to the real deal. Peace. www.endsforthapony.com (if you like the real)

    Well, this is kind of useless gossip, but it's good to know that The Amazing Spider-Man is still being filmed...

    by RobinP

    I thought for a second they were actually going to use the dune buggy thing they introduced in the comics in the mid seventies. Having Parker on a moped type thing is a good idea, seeing his comic book counterpart rode one. Nice photos here - are these used to haul lazyass stars from their trailers to the set ?

    by CharlesnJay

    If they can have Spidey's webshooters as part of his body rather than a mechanical invention, can't they just have a Spideymobile grow out of his ass? Maybe it could be retractable too. And am I the only one who thinks it would be cool to do a DC/Marvel crossover movie? Spidey vs. Batman!!!

    by misterWINKIE

    Who cares about this crap...yea it was cool to see...but anyways...lets not waste money on useless studio lot crap like this..and put it towards THE movie ITSELF. Geez. If the suits itemized the money they blew on useless shit...they might be able to churn out better quality flicks for once. And the sad part is THIS vehicle is being serviced? WTF. Which studio bastard drove this lil lawnmower into the ground? Anyways...can't wait to see some "behind the scenes" footage with the golfcart ala JackAss! :-)

    by JAGUART

    LOL! Dude that was too funny. Do they make em' with a sidecar for his buddy Damon? A Bigwheel suits those two huge "mega-action superstars". Old Hollywood woulda have made compost outta those two hacks.

    by Ribbons

    This is not something to attack Harry about. He's just having some fun and if you're not particularly interested, you shouldn't feel the need to say anything. Don't get mad at him because he doesn't have spoilers for you. If you're gonna give him constructive criticism, then tell him not to call Return of the King the best film of 2003 until he at least actually sees the fucking thing. This is not something to ride his ass about. I mean, what, do you think he'll stop reporting real news if you allow yourselves to have a sense of humor?

    by Moriarity Report

    I had just rewatched Spidey a day or two before seeing Matrix Reloaded and the action was entirley inadequate. I always thought Spider-man should give us action sequences that we've never seen before. Really take us up in the air above the rooftops. It should have shown us something we've never seen before like Matrix Reloaded did. The fight on top of the semi really did it. I don't know, maybe more of the action in Spidey 2 needs to be done with wires. It definatley needs to have more innovatice action sequences. Spidey is such a unique action character that it's really a shame if they don't play that up. In contrast to something like MAtrix Reloaded, the action in Spider-man really seemed small and insignificant with just a bunch of cg effects that everyone's seen before a million times already. Nothing innovative at all.

    Well, I wasted 2 hours of my life last night. Saw a movie. I could've taken every cool shot from the two decent action scenes and edited it down to 1 or 2 minutes of footage. One person in the group FELL ASLEEP. Yes, it was The Phantom Matrix....

    MEMORIES MAMMARIES

    by TomVee

    "i'd rather watch the woman in the apartment across the courtyard getting fucked by her roommate when her boyfriend is not there." I was involved in situations like that in my youth. Nothing as sweet as the big-breated gal in the next apartment inviting you over when the boyfriend's away. My favorite episode involved a sweet young thing standing on her balcony, giving me the eye as I walked across the courtyard, wearing nothing but a small towel.

    (I can't believe I had to explain this!) - - This vehicle is just a tricked up golf-cart for film production staff/acting talent to use on the set of the new Spider-Man film. It is NOT going to be in the movie as Spider-Man's form of transport! Sheesh!!

    I can't imagine that, when Spider-Man 3 comes around(and you know it will), the baddie won't be noneother than Venom. I can imagine Sam Raimi bowing out of a third film and, as a result, Columbia signs on James Cameron to direct #3! That would be sooooo fucking sweet! The circle(as Darth Vader so eloquently put it) would be complete!

    by General Idea

    Spidey swings in on a web and blows a 4-foot putt for par. Then Doc Oc grabs the 1-through-9 irons with each arm and clubs him senseless.

    Harry's Vehicle

    by DukePaulAtreides

    Through the veils of time and space, I see Harry driving a light blue 2003 T-bird convertible. On the hood is Harry's image from one of the animations - just his head with AICNNEWS above his face, not the rose petals and bathtub animation. Alamo Drafthouse stickers would dominate the quarter panels with small "Sell Out" stickers underneath that could only be read by 20-20 vision fans. I am glad to read Harry still has a sense of humor about the sell out posters here. Now back to my melange tea as Stilgar makes his report.
