Happy New Year everyone! This is my first custom of 2009...yay!!!

When I first saw this figure a few things ran thru my mind. It was just about the best Spider-Man figure I have ever seen. Seriously, I hate it when they try to get to complex with a Spider-Man figure by adding wrinkles in his costume or making his either super bulked up or supper skinny. I prefer this simple design is a Spider-Man figure...less is more.

However, there were 2 things that disappointed me with this figure. First, at this point and time in the comicbooks back in 1996 he was refered to as Spider-Man, the Scarlet Spider persona was over. Second I was upset that there were no ingraved web lines in his costume. So here is what I did...

I got a dremel for Christmas and ingraved all the weblines in his costume. Gave him a head-to-toe repaint for the more shady look like in the comics at that time, and there you have it.

I dub this figure Ben Reilly...The Sensational Spider-Man! Or at least that is what I remember the comics being called when this clone dawned the good ol' red and blues. Enjoy and Happy New Year!!!
