Captain Universe (Cosmic Spider-Man) – Marvel Legends (Vulture Series)

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…

Road Trip Finds

I was gone on a 21 day road trip with my wife and dog. We got a travel trailer and took it out on the maiden voyage. 21 days, 11 states, 4200 miles. Along the way I was able to stop in a plethora of WalMarts, Targets, a few Toys R Us’ and a couple of Walgreens.
