I am not a big collector of the Marvel 3 3/4 figures, but there are a few I do need. And when I saw they were coming out the Iron Spider-Man, I knew that was one I needed for my Iron Man collection. Since I have been collecting everything else created by Tony Stark, why not the suit he built to get Peter Parker to join his team?
A combination of Spider-Man’s style with Iron Man’s colors, and it was an instant classic. Gaining four extra “legs” really did give Spider-Man an advantage… for a bit. But he is used to being the underdog, and could not stay on top for long.
The pod on his back is the mounting point for the four “legs.” They are on ball joints so they can be posed. A really nice feature for the smaller scale. And a big advantage is that he can actually stand on his own, even with the legs attached to his back. I was expecting with the pod and legs that he would end up falling back too easily. Not the case thank goodness.
Probably too tall for the scale, since Spider-Man is eye-to-eye with Iron Man, but he is proportionate for the most part. He does have that long torso look that seems to be a curse of the Spider-Men in the 3 3/4 scale.
I am really happy with the overall look and design of the figure.
