Hot Toys Spiderman is indeed good fun.
Here’s pix of the package. It’s rather long compared to the recent Marvel release as it accommodates the clock tower piece base.
The costume is made of soft cloth and I would strongly recommend using gloves to handle this figure as one wrong move might rip the costume or the raised web lines.
I read from the usual forums that there were pieces where Spidey had misaligned eyes, so I tried to avoid getting a dodgy one. I think the seams on the top of his head and neck are rather ugly though.
I think his front and back insignias might have been hot-glued on, so let’s hope they stay on.
Before attempting to pose Spidey, I would advise getting hold of a True Type and fiddling around with the body to understand the range and rotation of the shoulder and hip joints. The official product description cites this as a modified True Type but you can clearly see elements of the advanced True Type, namely the add on muscular thighs, on this figure. Also, do take note that the wrist joints feel very brittle and I would advise extreme caution when switching the joints. The extra pair of joint may not be sufficient for this figure.
It’s been quite a while since any Hot Toys figure really thrilled me, so I’m glad Spidey swung by.
