Ben Reilly: The All New Spider-Man
Tricked into believing he is the true Spider-Man, Ben Reilly creates a new costume for himself and helps his clone brother Peter Parker battle evil. Ben dyes his hair blonde so that people donâ€™t realise that Peter and him are identical.
Ben Reilly comes with an alternate, unmasked head, his mask to hold in his hand and a webbing back pack.
Body: Parachute Spider-man
Hands: McFarlane Spider-man
Unmasked head: ML Longshot
Ben was even simpler than the Scarlet Spider. Just a pain in the arse to paint! I had to hand paint all those web lines and that took a long time and a steady hand.
Like with Spider-Carnage and any of my detailed line work, I use negative space to get the line really thin. Essentially I paint a line and then bring the colour (in this case, red) in from either side to get the line just the way I want it. Iâ€™ve never been a fan of sculpted webs on Spider-Man figures as while it helps the factory to paint correctly, I always think it doesnâ€™t reflect what the costume is supposed to be. And besides, Iâ€™m just not skilled enough to sculpt or dremel all those lines myself!
Ben again has the magnetic heads, an unmasked piece, and he also has a backpack for him to carry his high heels and tampons in. The backpack is sculpted and the strap holding it is from X-men Classics Beast.
