    I'm sure there's been threads about this before but I figured with ASM coming out soon and Andrew Garfield having a completely different body-type than Maguire, I thought I'd ask:

    What is the ideal heigh/weight for Spidey?

    And to the current Spidey costumers out there - What is your height/weight?

    I'm trying to get back into Spidey Shape and this will help me in my goal setting. Thanks ya'll :)

    Feel free to post your own pics (or ideal spidey look) for inspiration.

    Re: Ideal Height/Weight for Spidey

    basicly spiderman is somewere in betwean ottermode and athletic.
    because this shows he is quick and slender but also strong.

    the ideal hight would be anywere in betwean 1.70 Meters and 1.85 meters because the same with parcour the bigger the more dificult tricks and flips will get.
    but dude just train how you want to.
    id advise swimming you train y our core and everything connected to it ;)

    Re: Ideal Height/Weight for Spidey

    I'm planning to do a spidey build for halloween this year, and I'm 5'11", 150 lbs with a 28" waist. Hopefully I look ok, and not too scrawny; I had shoulder surgery, so there's a pretty solidly defined limit to how hard I can actually work out. Thankfully I'm lean as heck, so it won't take too much extra muscle to get in the right range. Probably going to look like this version of Spidey:

    Personally, I'm closer to the Tobey Maguire dimensions right now but I do notice the new spidey being waaay slimmer. Not sure If I'll be able to nail down that look. I'm still going to try to get slimmer though, since I can't really control my height...

    I guess it depends on how accurate you want to get and if its to the movie or the comic book in general. I'd say 5'10 and a muscular lean 170lbs.

    Here's where I currently stand. I feel I still want to lose another 10 pounds or so and try to get a little more lean and defined...

    I'll see if I can't snap some current pics in my Spidey4fun. Right now I'm at 5' 11 1/2" and about 179 pounds with somewhere around 12% BF and 15 1/2" biceps. Pretty close to exactly where I want to be (want to drop 2% BF and add another 5 pounds muscle).

    I have another question for all you spideys. How do you store/put away your suit? I've had it in a box before, then on a zipped up suit bag hanging from my closet but lately I just keep it in a plastic drawer along with it's upkeep supplies:

    El Fett,

    Thats a awesome looking suit, is that a Ollie or Spidey planet and is it printed on a two color fabric or white lycra? Eventually I will upgrade to a real web Spidey.

    Thanks bro. That would be my Ollie suit. I'm actually very glad I held on to it since its impossible to get now and Ollie pretty much disappeared. It's printed on white Lycra/spandex like the 2nd and 3rd movie suit. It's made with almost exact specs as the movies' suits. It's a very beautiful suit but it requires a lot of love and maintaining. I hardly ever put it on because of that reason. I've never taken it outside to a con or anything like that.

    I think a thin waist is the key. Maguire looked kind of thick in the middle at times. Of course in cgi he lost 20 pounds and gained 6 inches in height.

    I'm 6'4 and looking for a Spider-man costume. I know I'm taller than the official stats state but I don't care. Well, my eyes are the same color as his, under the suit anyway.

    I'm trying to get a Spidey build going. Among other things. However I stand 6"4 and am planning on weighing in at about 95kg, roughly trying for the same build as Hugh in Xmen origins. So safe to say my spider will be rocking some muscle. Will also help with the physique for my Green lantern, Wolverine, and Batman Begins costumes though.
    Prob try for a Thor build for a new years eve party too.

    * Luna, you look straight off the pages! Very cool!

    I realize I never really updated my stats here and I'm the one who started the thread. Doh!

    Okay this is from May 4th, 2013. Still 5'7 but down to around 158 lbs. Not bad since I think I started this thread at around 175 lbs or so.

    Amazing Spider-Man level "still thick" LOL!

    Thanks very much! You're looking great in your MCL34N suit. I'd like to be able to build more upper body mass like yours eventually to get a more "classic" spider-man size, when I "grow up." :) But right now I'm fine with being teen spidey, as long as I'm staying healthy there's many great ways to look like Spider-Man, evoking different artist's interpretations. The only common requirement is that Spidey's got to be physically fit and strong, no matter what his size! :)

    Thanks! I've since done some re-vamping to the MCL34N suit since I had to do repairs anyways.

    Here's my battle damage suit (or maybe I should say DarkTurbo04's since he's the new owner :p). I am definitely more top-heavy no matter how much weight I lose. I have a broad back and chest so I just have to play with that.

    And Bboy, more power to you bro. The stunts you pull on that suit are very impressive! I can't do that at 158, much less at 220! You gotta have a super strong core to pull those moves.

    Right on, man, you got to play to your strengths and work them. For sure.
    For me, I'm not very physically imposing because I'm tiny, but I'm real flexible and wiry, so I play to that instead.

    I second that! Amazing acrobatics. :)

    Heres a pic of my smallest weight at 130 lbs, which was way to underweight lol. I think for a spidey 140-165 is a good build depending on how the weight is distributed on the body and also bf%.

    Thanks for the kind words El Fett &Lunaman. You both showcase an awesome version of Spidey..both very believable.

    Its funny whenever i dress as Spidey and someone might occasionally make a remark about my larger representation i usually hit a series of backflips and it shuts them up pretty quick.(doesnt happen that often but ill get the occasional douchebags lol)

    back when i wrestled at 16yrs old the lowest amount of body weight they said i could get to(healthy) was 185 because of my larger football player frame so even thats still heavier then the ideal Spidey so i could neve really look like the perfect spidey per say. But i try my best :)

    I'm working on an ASM suit. I'm 5'10 1/2"- 5'11" and 180. I'm a lean 180 but a large lean 180. Does that make sense? 34" waist line. Rest assured I'm working on my insanity workouts. I'm looking to be around 165-170 32 waist. But we shall see. I'm only on week 2.
