Venom (Stealth) Review

Venom (Stealth)
Amazing Spider-Man (Toy Biz)
This has to be the strangest thing I've ever seen. It is just the symbiote blast Venom made from clear smokey plastic and given some highlights in black paint. It is the exact same figure with the exact same problems and features of the previous one. Well, they did paint the parts on his wrists, but black instead of white to go with the black symbol on his chest. I don't particularly remember ever seeing a clear Venom in the comics, but whatever.

It reminds me of all of the variant Metal Gear Solid figures that came out of everyone in stealth camouflage.

Basically, ToyBiz just poured some clear plastic into their molds, slapped on some black paint in spots and repackaged the thing.

Lol, you don''t have to paint so many layers to cover an old color?

I''d like to take back bad things I said about this figure being clear. It is REALLY easy to paint.

I know they just did the ones who actually used the camo, but it was just silly. They had Variants of variants because they''d have a clear Snake, a smoky colored Snake, and regular Snake. I thought it was just crazy.

The only variant MGS figure were the characters that actually used steath camo or psychic camo (Psycho Mantis). All figures that came this way actually made sense. They has about 6 Stealth Venom at my local KB but no Shocker or Jack o Lanterns.

...Oh no! Not THE BOX! AAAAAHHH!!!
VariablePenguin - Thursday, September 14, 2006
Well that''s good to know. Time to bust him out and add him to the BOX!

I''m guessing the Shocker was short-packed, not this guy. They alwats short-pack the characters everyone wants. That''s such a horrible idea

Does anyone know how rare this figure is? I was just wondering if I should take it out of the box or hang on to it.

Well, Venom is supposed to be able to make himself "invisible", some sort of advanced still looks wierd though
