Marvel Select Zombie Spider-Man

Marvel Select Zombie Spider-Man


Tom - September 23, 2007

Package Description
Peter Parker may have been a wisecracking super hero as Spider-Man, but he found nothing funny when a mysterious virus from another dimension transformed him and the rest of his world's hero's into flesh-munching zombies. While the rest have embraced their new existence, Spider-Man wants nothing more than to be normal again. At least, that is, until the hunger strikes again.

Appearance
Zombie Spidey turned out better than I thought he would. His damage may or may not be comic accurate, but it looks great on this figure. The face is especially gruesome, with flesh for the nose missing, and the teeth permanently exposed in a snarl. His right leg is the best part, with flesh stripped away from several portions. And as in the comics, his right calf is detachable. The cut of the leg is done well, taking the ball shape of the joint which actually looks fairly natural, as if the leg had been taken off at the knee.

The colors of the costume are darker than I expected, but I suppose it makes sense that the costume would age and become dirty. The joints are a little more visible on this figure because of the cuts and ball joints. Most of the time the joints blend in fairly well though, but that's mostly due to the blood and damage taking attention away from the joints.

Spidey is fairly well proportioned, although a little too tall for Marvel Legends figures. The hands are in fairly good poses. The reaching hand is essential for posing him, while the fist hand sometimes can look awkward. The included stand is great too, including the torso of the murdered Silver Surfer. Overall, Zombie Spider-Man looks great because of all the detail put into this figure. The varying flesh and blood tones, and sculpted in damage make this figure as good as I could have hoped.

Articulation
Spidey has ball jointed knees and elbows, which works better on this figure than any Hasbro figure I've bought so far. I actually didn't miss the cut on the shoulders of this figure, because the rotation of the ball joint elbows provides all the range of motion in the arms this figure needs. There are also ball jointed shoulders and hips, a cut for the waist, and pin jointed ankles. As is the case with most Spidey figures, he could use a little greater range of motion. For the most part though he can move adequately, because I don't expect Zombie Spidey to move quite as well as plain Spider-Man. The joint I would like improved the most is the head. It's a ball joint, but it can't move up and down much due to the neck.

Poseablility
Spidey has a fairly wide range of poses to choose from, and looks good attacking non zombie figures. He can't stand fairly well without his leg though, so options are limited without the leg. In addition, the detachable leg has the pin sticking out which makes it harder to pose Spidey holding it. What Spidey really needs is some other zombies to hunt with, and some civilians to be biting. At least some more zombies are on the way. In the mean time, he may be posed on his included stand.

Final Judgment: 7
Zombie Spider-Man turned out great. He is sturdy with a good sense of balance, an adequate range of motion, and a superb amount of detail. This figure lives up to expectations, and so deserves at least a "7". For someone who likes Marvel Zombies more than I do, this score can bump up to an "8".
