R263 Medicom Toy MAFEX Amazing Spider-Man Movie Figure Review

10 05 2013

Medicom Toy breaks into the action figure market with their MAFEX series. What better way to start off the line with movie version of the Amazing Spider-Man. Standing about 6.5″ tall, this figure is made of high quality plastic and movie accurate design/sculpting. The most impressive feature is in the articulation system. Nearly identical to Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line, this Spidey can be posed in the most dynamic ways possible. He includes a variety of extra hands, 3 web lines, and a clear plastic display stand. Pretty price at about $55 (bigbadtoystore.com) but this figure definitely delivers like no other Spider-Man action figure has ever done…quite possibly the best articulated Spidey to date.

There wasn’t any pose I really couldn’t put this guy through. If you saw it in the movie, you can get it here.

With extra hands, web lines, and a display stand, this is a Spidey figure that will change the action figure game. Hasbro…you’ve been warned.

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.
