Congrats to Gwen Stacy on getting to be a standout amongst the most prevalent characters in the Marvel Universe subsequent to making a noteworthy rebound from, well… being dead for 40+ years! Better believe it, I know, Spider-Gwen is an imaginary world Gwen Stacy, yet doubtlessly she’s additionally the most mainstream rendition of the character ever. What’s more, now, Hasbro’s given her first-ever 6″ figure: is the Marvel Legends Spider-Gwen figure worth the insane $30+ she’s offering for on the web? Read on for my survey…
Having quite recently appeared in the funnies in September 2014, Spider-Gwen detonated in ubiquity like no new character I can recall since, well… ever!
Merchandisers would be idiots to overlook this soaring character, and Hasbro’s not going to commit that error, discharging the Marvel Legends Spider-Gwen figure not exactly 18 months after her first appearance. Now that is service– and a gigantic thumbs up for Hasbro!
My greatest worry with this figure is that the Hasbro processing plant would flub the pretty plaid-like purple and green webbing designs on Gwen’s arms and internal hood. Fortunately, those feelings of trepidation were needless– the paint deco is expertly connected in these zones and truly pops.
Actually, the paint looks fabulous all-over on the Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman Marvel Legends 6″ figure. Her green “shoes” and white coating in her outfit look extraordinary, and I adore the pink “redden” paint wash on Spider-Gwen’s veil.
What’s more, hello, in the event that you need a superior take a gander at the veil, you can simply fly off Spider-Gwen’s hood altogether and substitute in the “pulled-back” hood, which looks and works great.
A few of the figures on this “adolescent young lady” Marvel Legends form have had stuck joints and breakages for me previously, however ideally Hasbro is past that: my 6″ Spider-Gwen Marvel Legends figure had zero quality control issues to talk about.
The majority of the enunciation functions admirably on this ML Spider-Gwen, particularly the twofold jointed knees, lower leg rockers, and ball-pivot shoulders, elbows and wrists.
Furthermore, in spite of the fact that this Spider-Man Legends Edge of Spider-Verse figure doesn’t accompany exchange hands (which I’ll complain about shorlty), at any rate she wasn’t sentenced to having two web-shooting hands like the poor MC2 Spider-Girl activity assume that I looked into a year ago!
One reason for Spider-Gwen’s gigantic famous is the vivacious and magnetic identity of her change sense of self, Gwen Stacy. Sadly, the other exposed Marvel Legends Gwen Stacy head included here resembles a fatigued, dead-eyes zombie.
I welcome the other Gwen Stacy head being incorporated here, yet it’s good for nothing resembling this, as I envision by far most of authorities are never going to utilize this terrible head.
What’s more, I figure it would have been pleasant to incorporate some substitute hands for Marvel Legends Spider-Gwen. They’re a little and shabby consideration, and we know they’ve just been tooled, since we’ve seen them on different characters utilizing this form. On the off chance that it came down to costing in a substitute representation or additional hands, I figure I’d pick the reward head, however the hands ought to have been a simple modest assistant to incorporate here.
At last, the Wrecking Ball that Gwen accompanies is the slightest basic bit of the Absorbing Man Build-A-Figure I assessed half a month back, as it has zero paint deco on it and looks dreadful with Absorbing Man. You’re greatly improved off utilizing one of the Wrecking Crew figures’ destroying balls, as they coordinate with the Crusher Creel figure endlessly better.
I’m not punishing Spider-Gwen for the destroying ball adornment, yet I would like to ensure everybody knows that it’s a quite baffling BAF piece.
By and large: Hasbro may have surged their Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2016 Spider-Gwen make sense of the entryway, however you wouldn’t know it from the phenomenal quality and structure. The paint applications are impeccable, the enunciation is as solid as ever, and the pulled-back hood looks extraordinary. The unnerving exposed head loses a couple of focuses for this activity figure (and will absolutely never be on mine again), however this is an unquestionable requirement have Spider-Gwen activity figure for enthusiasts of the character in any case. Very prescribed.
