He's the only person to have appeared in all of the Marvel movies to date, so it was only a matter of time before Stan Lee received his own amazingly lifelike action figure. But for all the completists out there who want their own scale version of the co-creator of the Marvel Universe, be warned: There will be only 1,000 available.

The Lee figure is being advertised as the "First-Ever 1:6 Figure" of the writer and celebrity, who worked with artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko to create characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men in the early 1960s.

As do all the best action figures, this one comes with an assortment of accessories — although those hoping for weapons or sweet Stan Lee-branded vehicles might be disappointed; instead, the figure comes with a couple of interchangeable heads (You can restore Lee to his bearded 1970s look!), four interchangeable hands, different glasses and a handkerchief, among other tchotchkes.

The figure, which will retail for $249.99, was created by Go Hero, Executive Replicas and Phicen Ltd. It was authorized by Stan Lee Collectibles, Lee's official merchandising company. Its release is anticipated later in 2015.
