Hasbro Ultimate Spider-Man Web Strike Spider-Man Action FigureComplaining about figure distribution is old hat. It's common for a figure to show up and you miss it - what's less common is a figure like Web Strikes Spider-Man, which showed up online last summer and didn't show up in stores until January. What's extra surprising is that this is a wave 2 figure, and wave 1 came out in January of 2013 - a full year earlier. Online stores have wave 3 already. I hear people complain in nearly every figure line, but it seems Marvel fans have more stumbling blocks than any other Hasbro property. Amazon doesn't even have it.

The five-joint-figure program seems to be largely successful, if stale. Stores turned over a decent amount of these cheaper figures with Star Wars Saga Legends doing pretty well and Wolverine seemingly selling out almost entirely without markdowns of any kind at most locations - I see this as a success. We'll know for sure when stuff hits closeout stores, but for now we can just enjoy that there are some figures with a low price point to be had.

This Spider-Man is a new sculpt that looks like one of the many redesigns - notice the silver wrist band web shooters. The very simple deco job lacks the webbing of most Spider-Man figures, giving it a very animated feel. The glossy plastic is like many of my 1990s Toy Biz figures, too, and the pose is muscley but not to a ridiculous extent. Close, though. One hand is more or less normally posed while the other is ready to fire some webs. Each shoulder and hip joint swivels easily, while the neck has a ball joint. There are no foot peg holes on the figure's feet.

The paint job is largely clean and the same mold was used for Ultimate Spider-Man and Iron Armor too. There's a bonus spider repaint for some reason - I don't know why, it doesn't add to the toy - and a web accessory that was repurposed from a previously-released Spider-Man. I was genuinely stunned to see this one, and I think I'd be way, way more excited to have it had I not been waiting months for it to show up at a store. I like it, it's probably worth the six bucks, but I don't know how impressive your average toy fan will find it. I'll buy wave 3 if/when it arrives, though.
