Spider-Man 2099 Review

Spider-Man 2099
Spider-Man Origins (Hasbro) - Series 1
This is a shady figure. Lol. Seriously though, this thing is creepy, just like he's supposed to be. It looks evil with that tribal-tattoo spider-skull symbol. You really shouldn't turn your back to this guy, he might suck your blood or something.

Spidey 2099 is the result of lazy/cheap Hasbro trying to re-paint old crappy figures to hopefully sell them. The hips are the biggest problem here, Spids has an old standard T-crotch. The legs are splayed-out so the feet have to be in awkward positions to hold him upright. This could have been an beautiful figure, the paint-job is phenomenally awesome!, but that stupid semi-crouching pose he's stuck in killed that dream. This fig looks good in classic Spiderman action poses, but they're limited because the knees don't bend all the way (single-hinge) and it doesn't have an ab-crunch (waist still turns though), vital joints for Spidey. The cloth web-cape is cool, it's held-on with elastic bands and is removable.

Like I said before, the paint is perfect, the orange is super-sharp with no bleeding, and I can't tell if the blue is painted or not. The blue looks metallic, but it's not that stupid plastic-with-sparkles effect, it actually shines like blue metal, it makes for a very sleek look.

Articulation is pretty good, the upper-body has all standard ML artic, including fingers, minus the ab-crunch. The lower-body has swivel-hips, single-hinged knees, and hinged ankles. That's it.

I don't think this is worth the $10 retail price, not with these kind of joints with limited poseability. Still, it looks way nicer paint-wise than the older 6-inch Spidey 2099.
