Figure Friday: Spider-Man SDCC 2010 Exclusive

Published on September 10th, 2010

Recently we have been posting reviews of this years San Diego Comic Con Exclusives, such as  Ultimate 1940’s Captain America and the Ages of Thunder Thor. On this weeks Figure Friday we are looking at the last one from Hasbro/Marvel.  Behold!! The Spider-Man (Movie Costume) figure.

Package Description:

For years now, Spider-Man has protected the people of New York City from the threats both big and small. He is their champion and protector, and though they often wonder who he is beneath the mask, they never doubt that he fights for justice on their behalf.

Appearance:

Everyone knows what Spider-Man looks like. I know I do as on my left arm I have a Spider-Man Tattoo based on Tim Sale’s artwork in Spider-Man Blue and Hasbro did a great job on making him look like the Spider-Man that we all know from the films. Hasbro ,Aunt May would be very happy with the work you put in to Peter’s costume.

The figure has a lot GREAT texture on his costume. Witch helps with the chain mail and embossed web lines. However there is something that kind of kills this figure for me. In the inside of his arm you can see where there are a few red circles. How hard would it have been to just paint over those with some blue paint.

He looks a lot like the old Marvel Universe Spider-Man figure that came out in series one. They both have a open hand where his web would shot out.  It feels like they where using the same sculpt on this movie costume figure but this guy is just a bit bigger then the Marvel Universe 3 3/4 Spider-Man figure.

Like most Spider-Man figures the lines of his costume don’t line up when you start playing around with him. That is something I am use to with Spidey figures. He also comes with a very cool accessories, he comes with a web line that  has a suction cup so you can hang your figure from a window. This makes perfect sense that Spidey would come with an accessories like this.

Poseability:
This figure of Spider-Man sports 33 points of articulation, such as Ball-hinge neck, swivel-hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinge elbows, swivel-hinge wrists, ball-jointed torso, swivel-hinge hips and swivel thighs, double-hinge knees, swivel boot tops, and swivel-hinge ankles. I had a lot of fun poseing this figure when I was taking the photos. I am sure he would be a lot of fun to play with if I was a little kid playing with all my Marvel Universe figures.

Final Judgment: 7/10

If your a fan of the Spider-Man films this a must have figure. I would say if you can find him at a good deal then buy him. Like a lot of the exclusive from any Con not just San Diego you can always try the secondary market since it looks like is currently out of stock on the Hasbro website.

So there you go now we are officially done with all San Diego Comic Con 2010 news. THANK GOD!!!!Onward to 2011.
