Marvel Legends Spider-Punk figure review by lylesmoviefiles.com
Spider-Punk, a fun variant from the Spider-Verse, is a fantastic figure that is immediately striking and aesthetically pleasing. The figure comes in standard packaging with multiple accessories, its design and packaging effectively embodying the character’s punk theme. It enjoys faithful design elements such as the well-sized vest and high top sneakers that distinguish the Spider-Punk from the regular Spider-Man. A slight anomaly is the character’s spikes, which appear to be marginally smaller.
The figure's paint job is admirable for the most part, with perfectly done masks and some outstanding work on the vest's back. A minor drawback lies in the stray red marks on the sneakers and misaligned vest buttons. The wish still stands for Hasbro to introduce a more effective peg system to eliminate the red peg in the inner blue parts of the costume. Simultaneously, Spider-Punk's articulation makes for a figure that is easily poseable, making it more fun.
Hasbro could improve this well-made figure further by including an unmasked head sculpt. Nevertheless, other accessories such as the guitar and the character's unique hands are valuable additions. Spider-Punk is excellent value for money
The figure comes with four interchangeable hands, including options for guitar playing poses. It also comes with a nice-looking guitar, inspired by models like the Epiphone SG special, complete with real-life details like a whammy bar and humbucker pickups. The figure’s head sculpt is phenomenal, with distinct silver paint for the Liberty spikes and stud spikes on the shoulders. It is designed for customization, giving you the option to change bands on the pins or the denim vest. The figure also features clean deco and is made out of soft, pliable materials for easy manipulation. Other elements like the Chuck Taylors and the nod to popular punk rock band NOFX make this figure a gem in the Marvel Legends collection. Overall, I think the figure is well-detailed, with great articulation and superb poseability, and I can't wait to get a few more for customization. My only critique is that I would have loved even more interchangeable hand options.
