Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Marvel Legends Big Time Spider-Man

27 11 2012

The hardest of the Hasbro’s Arnim Zola Marvel Legends series is this Big Time Spider-Man. It’s been months since it 1st released and I spotted one the shelf at my local Target.

Box is very cool and I love the Spidey illustration by Ed McGuinness.

Overall, this figure sports a very green than black Spider-Man.

A closer look at his spider logos. You can also see the overpowering green that surrounds the logos. That color should be black in my opinion.

Much of this figure uses older parts like from the Black Spider-Man from the Target Exclusive Red Hulk series. The new parts are the head, forearms, hands, lower legs, and feet.





Adventures in Toy Shopping: Black Friday 2012: Grab Zags Marvel Minis Ultimate Spider-Man

24 11 2012

As you might expect, Black Friday was filled with big crowds and long lines at pretty much every big name store. I did most of my shopping on Amazon. Just out of shear curiosity, me and my cousin decide to hit a few stores. First stop was Gamestop at around 11am. Pretty crowded but the lined moved rather timely. Next up was Toysrus. Place was like tornado hit it. It was just a big mess and the line was so long I decided to hold off what I intended to buy. Walked over to Best Buy and that place was even worse. Decided to head home and chill out a bit. Did some more online shopping and realized I missed a few presents. Hit up Gamestop and Toysrus again. Lines were long but they moved pretty well. Even the clerks who checked me out seemed to be friendly and up beat at the 8pm hour. While I was in line at Toysrus, I spotted these little 1″ Grab Zag Minis Ultimate Spider-Man blind pack figures. They looked pretty good from the product shots on the packaging and are priced at $2.99. Because they are blinded pack figures its difficult to know what you’re getting. The figure inside is actually sandwiched with 2 cardboard sheets to make it a bit difficult to feel up the bag for the figure you want.

To my luck, I scored the figure I wanted : Spider-Man

As mentioned, the figure stands about 1″ tall.

The figure comes with a deep gray stand with a clear plastic poll. One end pegs into the stand and the other into the back of the figure. I especially like the official Ultimate Spider-Man logo on the stand.

The figure is sculpted very nicely, reminds of  the Japanese Super-Deformed cartoon style. The paint apps are a bit messy but what do you expect for something so small. I like the fact the web are black panel-lined.

Next to my G.I.Joe Storm Shadow, you can really get sense of scale. It’s an awesome little figure, perfect next to a computer monitor. I just might pick up a few more.
