I have a couple of Mafex Spider-Man figures. An Amazing
What’s in the Mafex
Spider Man Box?
As I mentioned, I knew what to expect, and I wasn’t let down. We get the Mafex
What doesn’t work with the Mafex
Spider Man figure?
It’s time for nitpicky me. My single biggest gripe is the location of the “belt” on his costume. I suppose its more of a onesie. Regardless, they placed the belt in a location that is easily swallowed by the articulation. You need the red to break up that blue. Perhaps if they put half on the top and half on the bottom?
While the wrist pegs make it easy to get the swappable hands on and off, it also makes them more prone to falling off on their own as well. Be careful.
Speaking of things that will fall out on its own, if you don’t place the mask exactly in his hand just right, it will fall out. It’s tiny and would be easy to lose.
Mafex still does not understand flesh tones. That lack of understanding really hurts what would have been the quintessential comic Peter Parker head sculpt.
As much as I love the Mafex stands, I would have liked to have seen a peg hole in his back. When posing him for photographs or just in general, the clip really gets in the way a lot.
The web with the cup at the end attaches to nothing. It was infuriating when you couldn’t attach the ASM2 web to the sewer cover he came with, and it’s more infuriating now. Such a good idea wasted.
The magnetic hands and feet, as in past iterations, is a cool gimmick. However, until they strengthen their magnets, its nothing more than a novelty. I was reminded of this when I stuck him on the fridge for a picture and watched him slide down repeatedly.
Finally, could we have gotten a battle damaged headsculpt? Isn’t it high time for one? The last one I remember was from the first Toby movie. Also, if I had to pick one additional pack in, I’d like to have seen a camera. I need a 1:12 camera for Pete!
What works with the Mafex Spider Man?
Someone at Medicom (the people who make the Mafex line) must really love
There are enough hands to cover any scene you want to shoot him
The fact of the matter is, there is too much good to cover here, and almost all of it comes from being a
Should you pick up the Mafex
I have good news and I have bad news for you. Yes, you should get it. However, the bad news is, the figure’s price almost tripled after his release. The good news? Medicom is releasing another wave, so be ready. If you’re a Spider Man fan, get this figure. No lie. It will be the only
