Yeah, the entire thing all shook out really weird. I knew who It was gonna be the minute they said they were doing "the Biggest BAF ever", then amended it to the "Tallest BAF ever". They weren't even willing enough to expend enough plastic to do characters like Sasquatch and Giant Man (MCU) correctly, I was sure they weren't gonna do a FFF type BAF. I also had my suspicions that this Stilt Man was gonna be a rushed, half ayassed effort and it do not disappoint. Like you said, almost like "Here, we did it, just cuz we could and to finally get it done. Not a bad effort, but certainly not a good effort, but scratch it off the list either way. As I said though, he's a new character and I want a ton of ninja and if they had to do it at least they got the premise right. Give the army builder the parts that most people will want multiples of.

seeing more of this figure keeps making me totally more and more fine with not wanting to build him, I never thought this character was cool, I think this BAF looks lackluster, poor paint job..well there isn't any really, clearly all the money went into his legs, and his legs look.. ah....
I think the novelty for this figure is a kind of "Look what we can do", and certainly this isn't the kind of thing we would have seen in earlier Legends efforts. I think they could have done a better job with the legs, because the way they've done it really looks like he's an amputee with the "stilts" attached. Also they didn't allow for any real articulation of the stilts. He's not really my cup of tea either, but I appreciate that they're willing to go out beyond the norm and tackle some characters that we'd otherwise likely never see. But yeah....I passed on this one too!
At least he seems tall enough even with only one hand ninja.

I don't wanna be a hater, dude this guy just looks like a goof ball, and with that in mind, he always was a goofy villain. I'm cool on passing, I can't imagine how silly building this guy to like 7 feet would look and how ridiculous and space wasting it would be, they made a really superb move making the hand ninja the leg extensions..because at least people want hand ninjas and lots of them.
Stilt man has these Rocket pods on his hips that in the comics can rotate & shoot out some plasma blasts. Shame Hasbro didn't make em able to do that. Silver Centurion Iron man went after him during the "Armor wars" as well.
I just can't understand how they couldn't use that ankle pivot to create some kinda leg articulation if you added more than one set of legs. I've already bought multiple ninja in hopes of modifying those legs to give them some kind of curvature.
Is Stilt-Man two Ninjas high? That seems a decent height. I know in comics he is shown walking across the sky line but thats just silly, guy is at best a petty criminal, makes no sense to spend all that funny money on leg expansions..
im torn on this guy. Sure classic Marvel villain and a long time DD rogue but at the end of the day its Stilt - Man. Has he ever been a serious threat to anyone outside of his initial appearances in the 60s when even Paste Pot Pete was written straight with no hint of irony?!?
Im sure this guy will end up in my collection but guess I cant be sure how happy that will make until he is in hand..

Super excited to get Stilt-Man!!! Just wish I didn't have to buy the animated Into the Spiderverse figures to get him, they're not my bag.... except for the Prowler, that one looks great! Frog-Man is fantastic too and I'm always up for another version of an army builder in the Hand Ninja. I'm hoping that I can sell off Peter, Miles, Gwen and Ham on ebay to recoup at least half of what I paid for those figures that I didn't want.
