If it’s every boy’s dream to be a superhero, every actor wants his own superhero action figure. Although ”Spider-Man” won’t hit theaters until May, Tobey Maguire’s already peeked at his six-inch plastic Peter Parker (due in stores this spring after debuting at this month’s Toy Fair in New York City). His first reaction? ”It’s much smaller than I actually am,” says Maguire, 26. While some actors request nips and tucks on their Mini-Mes (”The Lord of the Rings”’ Elijah Wood asked for less hirsute feet on his Frodo toy), Maguire jokes he got the full Van Susteren. ”My action figure had everything done!”
