MARVEL LEGENDS (HASBRO)
“Spider-Woman uses heightened senses and powerful venom blasts to strike down any enemies of justice!”
Okay, took a break from Legends for some patriotic appreciation, but now I’m back over in the Legends corner. Still looking st the Spider-Man stuff, specifically his distaff counterpart, Spider-Woman!
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Spider-Woman is part of the Lizard Series of Marvel Legends. She’s the second main universe Jessica Drew we’ve gotten during Hasbro’s tenure. She’s wearing her newest costume, introduced following Spider-Verse. It’s a more real world design, no doubt put together for easy movie translation. The figure stands 6 inches tall and she has 27 points of articulation. She’s built on the Phoenix body, with a new head, torso, and pelvis. The new pieces change up the body pretty suitably, resulting in a fairly nice looking translation of the design. The head is definitely the nicest piece. It takes a page out of Mockingbird’s book, and gives her removable glasses. While it’s not super needed for this particular figure, it has the added benefit of giving an unmasked head to those who already have the classic Spider-Woman from a few years back. The removable glasses actually work a bit better here, leaving almost no visible connection points when removed. The paintwork on Spider-Woman is quite sharp, and very cleanly applied. The face in particular is really nice looking, especially with the glasses in place. If there’s one downside on this figure, it’s her general lack of extras. She’s got the torso of Lizard, which is pretty sizable, to be fair, but she’s got nothing character specific. A web line or some extra hands would be nice.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
I don’t have any particular attachment to this Spider-Woman design, so I wasn’t really itching for a figure of it. However, I’m really wanting to build Lizard, and this figure looked nice enough. I ended up grabbing her from All Time Toys, which also helped.
Speaking of All Time Toys, they still have this figure in stock on their website, if you want one of your own. Or, if your looking for something else, check out their eBay store for tons of other cool stuff.
