Quick Question: Did Spidey's costume in his 1st appearance in Amazing Fantasy#15 had the Blue Spider logo at his back? Only asking because other 1st Appearance Spidey figures usually have a Red Spider, so I always assumed it was Red. Unless in the comics, there were 1 or 2 Panels in that instead of Red, the colourist made it Blue. But just curious really.

No, it was blue throughout that first appearance. You have to remember though that they were just getting their feet wet and likely didn't much thought into it. After all, Stan Lee forgot his name (Palmer instead of Parker) in the very first Spider-Man issue!
Thanks for answering my question. Again, it's only because most 1st Appearance Spidey figures usually have a Red Spider, so to find out that it was Blue all along, is kind of a neat tibit for me.
I currently don't have a 1st Appearance Spidey in my collection(Regardless if it's 4" or 6"), only because I've never felt the need for it, though I will admit, that 4" Marvel Legends 5POA Retro 1, I may consider, only because I think it's kind of unique how they did the web wings on that figure. Having said that, I will admit, this 6" with the Blue Spider at the back, sort of interests me, and would help stand out a bit more than my other 6" Spidey's, so I could consider it. We'll see.
I like how this classic style Moon Knight has 2 swapping heads, so that you can have either the White Mask, or the Black Mask. I personally don't view Moon Knight as someone that I would get multiple versions of, at least in 6" scale, as I've really like the kind of modern armoured look, and even that Disney+ Series Mummy look. His business suit look isn't too bad, but I don't feel the need to get it, unless I want a pure white business suit for swapping head reasons. And for the record, I don't have any Moon Knight figures at this time. But the fact that it has 2 swapping different colour masks, I will admit, has me interested as well, enough to consider it as a maybe.
All I know if this was maybe 2 or 3 years ago, before the price increases, these would of been "Strongly Consider" instead of "Maybe Consider".

So this is the same as AF15 Spidey but with the blue symbol on the back and Moon Knight is a straight-up re-release? I've reached the point this year that others were at a year or two ago where I'm out on these iterative upgrades. Maybe after 2 or 3 more iterations, I'll upgrade.
Can't blame you on that. There are times where I get a figure, only for them to do a minor upgrade a year or 2 later, and I will usually not double dip(Example: I got the 1st Ben Reliey 1990's Scarlett Spider in the regular Marvel Legends line, and then a few years later, they re-released it with a bit of a better deco, but also the unmasked Ben head, and I had to declare that I wouldn't double dip just for the Ben swapping head). Will admit for me, it may depend on the characters if I may double dip on the same costume but I can make exceptions, including if 1 has painted details and the other has sculpted(Think Captain America, and 1 having sculpted chainmail, and the other is painted), if it's been a good few years since I got a figure in a specific costume(Even more so if it's a better head sculpt, more accessories, and/or added a decent amount of joints), if feel there is a actual need or if I'm just happy with the older figure, if the new release is in a multipack that has a figure I really want, etc.
1 trap that I've so far haven't fallen for, is buying new Single release figure in the same costume of 1 I already have just because the new figure has Pin-Less Joints. They may get me with a Multipack if the Multipack has a figure or 2 I really want(That has already sort of happened with the Renew Your Vows 2 Pack, as I only really wanted the MJ as Spinneret figure, as the Pin-less Spidey was just a added bonus for something I didn't really need, but was okay to get), but not a Single Pack, at least so far.
