American Arachnid Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:1274  
Name:American Arachnid
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Amalgam
Creator:VariablePenguin  
Date Added:November 23, 2006
Base Figure:Marvel Legends 1st Appearance Spider-Man
Height:6.00 inches
This figure is a fusion of Captain America and Spider-Man.
What if the Super Soldier program used genetic material from a spider to fuel it's serum?
Steve Rogers undergoes the program and recieves the proportional strength and agility of a spider as a result. He also has a sixth-sense for danger, the ability to produce webbing from his wrists and the ability to cling to almost any surface. Armed with a nearly indestructable shield and outfitted in a costume with both a patriot and archnid feel, Rogers stands to battle the NAZI menace.

The body was just your average 1st App Spidey. I removed the head and put on a Prof. X head so I could easily scuplt a mask where the mouth is visable like Captain America wears. I scuplted boot cuffs to further resemble the Captain. The shield and belt are both from Patriot. I modified the shield with elastic straps so it could be more versitle. It can be slipped over his arms and to his back.
I painted his blue parts British Naval Grey Blue to give it a more authentic drab military color. I doubt with the rationing of supplies during WWII, they would have wasted so much blue dye on an unproven hero's costume, that and it's REALLY not good in combat to stand out so much. Lastly, his feet have magnets in the heels and balls of his feet so he can cling to metal surfaces.
