Ugh, the letdown for me of the wave. I am NOT into Tombstone. He is ugly, and he is fairly uninventive. He is a Spider-Man bad guy, so he fits, but this guy really does not bring a lot to the table for me.
On top of that, he is missing one of his boot tops. There are plastic accessories that make up the wrist of the gloves, and the tops of the boots. Hasbro doesn’t even care enough to give this guy proper clothing molds, and one of them isn’t even there. I really don’t care much. It doesn’t really detract from the figure, and I do not care about this guy one bit. He is a means to an end. All I really want is the engine piece for Vulture’s wings. He is going to sit in a dark corner until I need him to come out to be a punching bag for a Spider-Man or two in the future.
Well, one figure left. Vulture. A figure and the necessary part to make the build-an-accessory work. We will see him next…
The Spider-Verse meets the Micro-Verse. Peter Parker was joined with the Uni-Power and given greater power than he had before. The costume he wore was consistent with others who also joined with the Uni-Power, save for the webbing around the mouth area.
This was an easy choice of figures. They used a standard muscular buck and added some heads.
There is a lot of work that went into the paint on this one. Most of the body is white, but the upper part has a lot of added work. The metallic blue is really nicely done. The head sculpt is pretty well done. There is a lot of good details around the eyes.
The second head belongs to Captain Universe. This is more of a generic head that could be anyone. I am going to go with Ray Coffin, who was the first Captain Universe back in 1979 in Micronauts #8.
The final head sure does look like Peter Parker with a beard. I really, really, really like this head sculpt. The hair and beard are great. This head will definitely be making an appearance again soon on some body or another.
This is one of those figures that I didn’t have any clue about. He was a means to an end, so I could collect all of the parts to Vulture’s wings. But along the way, I learned a lot about him, and really like the figure overall.
We are down to our last two figures. One is pretty bad, and one will take the cake. Until next time…
