Spider Bracelet, from the Japanese Spider-Man TV series.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is one of my most coveted fictional costume accessories at the moment.
Back in the late ‘70’s, there was a live-action Spider-Man TV series in Japan that ran for forty-one episodes. The general plot of the series deviated greatly from the original Marvel source, utilizing elements of sentai (including henshin, giant robots, and villains in audacious ensembles). The main character, Takuya Yamashiro, transforms into Spider-Man with the use of his Spider Bracelet (above), which contains his Spider-Man suit (aka the Spider Protector), a telecommunicator, gas bombs, and acts as his web shooter.
Since I’m a sucker for accessories that are streamlined, multi-functional, and can contain an entire outfit within a tiny compartment (like The Flash’s ring), I think it’s imperative that I own a Spider Bracelet in my jewelry collection.
Head over to Marvel to catch episodes of Japanese Spider-Man, and be sure to check out the hilarious episode recaps on ComicsAlliance!
