The Amazing Spiderman is a pinball game released in 1980 by GottliebIt was the first of Gottlieb's System 80 design pinball machine. It also was the first Gottlieb pinball, with an "attract mode" lighting. In which various playfield lights, alternate between off an on, to make the game more attractive to passersby, thus encouraging play. It was also the first solid state pinball, with the speaker in the backbox(head) instead of the bottom cabinet.

Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man and public face of Marvel Comics, claimed ownership of one of the first machines of the assembly line and kept it in his Marvel office until he auctioned it as part of his Stan Lee collection at Heritage Comics Auctions (HCA) of Dallas, Texas, USA.
