Series: Marvel Universe; Secret Wars Comic Packs
Release Date: 2009
Comments: After a long run of figures at a 5″ scale, then 6-7″ scale for Marvel legends; HASBRO has moved the Marvel universe to their popular 3 3/4″ scale. Following the sucess of Star Wars and G.I. Joe comic packs, Marvel packs are a natural fit; these being comic book characters and all that. For their first venture, HASBRO chose the 12 issue limited series “Secret Wars”.
Comic pack #3 (featuring Secret Wars #3) includes your friendly neighborhood Spider-man and Thunderball. Spidey features 15 points or articulation; which seems to be about the standard for the Marvel Universe figures. Opting for a classic blue and red costume, Spidey also has molding webbing detail on his costume. The paint job is clean so the effect is nice. One hand is molded in a fist, while the other is ready for some web slinging action. Overall, he’s a good figure, but like Cap, I’m sure this isn’t the best Spider-man figure we’re going to see in the line.
