Let’s be honest here; the events in the Spider-Man 2099 comic book were not significant enough for me to remember anything about them almost 18 years later. So then, why did I buy the Marvel Universe Spider-Man 2099 figure? Two reasons, there was a sale at Toys R Us when I found the newest wave and I thought it looked pretty good.
The figure itself is a great representation of the character, down to the webby thing on the figure’s back. I’m interested in seeing how this version of Spider-Man sells, collectors will surely be familiar with the character but how will kids and parents respond? Will they pick it up since it’s a Spider-Man; despite it looking pretty different from the web-slinger? Only time will tell, I suppose.
