This is is a "swap and merge special" to create that certain spider-man that I think of when I hear his name. I tried to make the quintessential classic version to me. I held off from painting it, although I probably will. Those of you who have done a spidey custom and had to put the webs back on back on by hand know why I'm hesitant. I don't want to do the webs as a wash and wipe because I feel it always shows on the plastic seams (visible in a multitude of spidey figures). Plus I find the paint is very close between the ensemble parts (except for the right hand and forearm glove). But now for the recipe:
most of the body: spider strength spider-man
hands: sinister six box set spider-man
head: a spider-man classics figure I found loose in a flea market bargain bin, it had very little articulation in the upper body, and from the hips down a good sculpt (so you may see them turning up here as somebody else). Thanks for the view!

This is a perfect Spidey! The head choise was the best sculpt I've seen and doing the waist down yourself takes some stones. I was thinking about using A DC Deadman but still going over the approach (just to be different). Amazing, Spiderman!

Looks great to me, really iconic Spidey, nice job! The only part that looks like it might need a paint job to me are his hands, they look a little lighter red than the rest, but not very noticeable, so he really is pretty darn good as he is.
