Here it is, December 31st, so I am guessing this will be the last blog post for 2014. I wanted to go out with a bang, so I am looking at the Marvel Bishoujo Spider Woman. She is a knock-out, both in figure design, and attraction. Enough with the talk, on to the pictures.
She looks amazing. Her outfit is SO shiny. You can see the top light reflecting on her body. She has a great stance that is quite different from the other Marvel Bishoujo figures. I have to say, as Koto started to work on the DC statues, their Marvel statues got a whole lot better. I have a few other Marvel statues that were given to me as gifts, and they are smaller, and nowhere near as nice as the current run of statues.
I love her hair. It is flowing all around her, giving some good, much needed movement to a pretty static pose. The addition of the hand being thrown forward added a bit of extra depth to the figure too.
Easily overlooked, the back is not passed over on this one. She doesn’t have a ton of detail on the back of her outfit, so there is a lot of room to make some great musculature. It is accentuated by the shiny material that really stands out.
Of course, the Bishoujo statues are known for their faces, and half of Spider Woman’s face is covered with her mask, so the only appropriate thing to do was add a second face, so you can have an unmasked version, or what I call the Jessica Drew version.
In all, a great figure. Here comes the end of a great year of toy hunting. Overall, a really terrible year for me personally, but I am looking for a comeback in 2015. My life is looking to be in a good place, we have a new Transformers TV show coming out, and about a million and a half comic book movies. Can’t wait to get 2015 rolling. See you next year… as in tomorrow probably.
