Quarter-Million Spider-Men for US Schools

According to GamingReport.com, Playmates Toys is distributing 250,000 Spider-Man figures and a battle die to 1,000 middle schools across the United States. The report states:

The sampling is focused in the Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Sacramento areas.

Very cool, although it perhaps implies that the Spider-Man clone saga got a little out of control.
