Subj: Upcoming Hasbro Marvel Legends Spider-Man Retro Line: Excited?
Posted: Thu Jul 02, 2020 at 04:07:04 pm EDT (Viewed 173 times)

Are you all excited about he upcoming Spider-Man Retro Line of figures? I love the 1990's Spider-Man cartoon card backs.

There's been some previews of the figures loaded on YouTube. Some of my comments from what I've seen:

Love the new head sculpts!!! Love the new body sculpt they're using except one thing... I'd have kept the waste swivel instead of the torso swivel on Spidey. Breaking the "red webs" down the chest and abdomen of Spidey, aesthetically, looks weird. I feel that the pizza Spidey had it right. I do wish we had a MORE retro look on the Spiders on the back and chest... I kinda hope we get some repaints that really bring us the Romita or Ditko spiders... I'd put down more cash for those. For example, the Raft Spidey had a GREAT McFarlane spider on the chest.

Peter Parker:
The glasses, man... I know what they were going for... very Ditko. Maybe some light blue for a shine might have helped... but maybe keeping them "clear" or no lenses may have been a better move. Love the split Spidey/Peter head... best implementation of that yet!

Head swapping Gwen and MJ just creeps me out. I wish they had just given us a dedicated Gwen and later a dedicated MJ. They could have given MJ the classic Romita first appearance look with two head sculpts... classic Romita MJ and maybe a more modern one that wasn't a repaint. I'm sure this was a bean-counter decision and they did the best they could, but... it is what it is.

Green Goblin / Electro / Mysterio / Kingpin:
They all look pretty classic. Very solid representations of the characters. It does make me wonder what kind of Doc Ock we'll see.

I'm kinda surprised they added this 90's version in. I kinda liked this suit, even if the original is my favorite.
