|Marvel Legends Spider-Girl|
Having made her way as a running change for Black Cat, we're still getting the Ultimate Green Goblin's upper torso Build-A-Figure piece apparently. The sharp and classy collector-friendly type of packaging made it less like a child's toy and more appealing to adult collectors. It's reusable and convenient without getting tied up on some twisty ties.
The Marvel Legends Spider-Girl uses a totally brand new body mold. A smaller and leaner body mold that creates a whole lot of potentials for a 6-inch scale Shadowcat, X-23, Jubilee and many others. The sculpt really defines the physique of an average teenage girl with proportions that are well sized and balanced. The waves around her hair along with the ponytail are well executed; looking so natural. And her face, of course is pretty!
Having just a solid black and white colour scheme, there's nothing much here to talk about except for how they carefully painted the symbol that hugs her suit. I see no white paint seeping over the black areas, which is good! The only minor complain I have are the little scuffs at the hinges of her shoulders, which has always been a problem in most figures. But if we're talking highlights, I'd say the face grabbed my attention mostly because of the colour of her lips and the flesh tone. The hair could have been done better if there are some shaded parts on it but it's not a huge deal.
Unfortunately, there are no accessories that come with this figure- zero! No interchangeable hands unlike our Superior Spider-Man and it's kind of a bummer.
While Spider-Girl still shares every joints and hinges we had from Black Cat, Hasbro added one important part which I think is a must-have for all female Legends figures, and these are calf swivels. It took them awhile to finally incorporate these. Still missing a waist swivel, Spider-Girl got a ball-jointed diaphragm swivel at the torso and T-joints at the hips. Her head is on a ball-joint that allows her head to rotate, move up and down without hindered by that long ponytail because it's made out of pliable material. She has ball-hinged shoulder, single-jointed elbows with rotation and hinged wrists with rotation. The legs got thigh cuts, double-joints, mid-calves rotation (as I've mentioned) and hinged ankles with the ankle rockers.
Now for size comparison. She stands at an ideal height of 5.8 inches, which is suppose to because she's petite. She looked someone like a little sister to those previous female figures we had from Hasbro Marvel Legends. Getting this action figure or not depends on how big of a fan you are. Personally, I think I'm gonna keep this figure not because I'm a fan of Spider-Girl, but because I like the way this new female body looked.
