Hasbro Spider-Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Action FigureI was pretty stoked to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 action figure but I passed on it the first time - my error, as the price increase from $15 to $20 took place quickly. While I didn't see the last movie, I do enjoy the character and I generally make a tradition of buying one new Spider-Man figure for each new movie. This one seemed like the clear winner, because the 6-ish-inch figure has over 30 points of articulation. Each shoulder can be moved in 3 places, and the joints are nice and stuff. It feels like a toy, but moves like a more expensive figure. While I'm on a kick for cheaper, smaller, simpler toys I cannot deny that this may be the best Spider-Man figure (without magnets in its feet or that isn't clear blue) I've ever bought.

Hasbro Spider-Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Action FigureI've been interested in this kind of figure since Toy Biz kicked off Spider-Man Classics predating Marvel Legends by a couple of years. The good news is that the upgrade is really, really nice - the new movie outfit looks more like a comic outfit, and nearly every joint you could want seems to be here. Bend-and-swivel wrists are included with alternate "metal sign" or "web-slinging" meat paws which can be swapped out for balled-up fists.

The only feature that feels missing are some surprisingly tiny joints from the Toy Biz days - articulated toes, or articulated fingers. Neither are present, and while this improves the look of the figure I certainly wouldn't have minded a little more to make this figure really sing. Not that it doesn't - the pearly eyes and deep blue deco make this one shine. The only downer on the paint job is that the plastic rivets are red against a dark blue bodysuit, and they're quite the eyesore. Hasbro has been doing a lot of this lately, but it's a relatively minor quibble over an otherwise superbly fun piece of desk candy.

As you no doubt have many, many super-articulated Spider-Man figures in your collection by now odds are you don't need another. I thought the same thing, but when I saw this I knew I had to have it and I'm glad I bought it. I found it difficult to put down while I was watching TV when I found him, and short of tricking him out with magnets or some other surprising action feature I think this is as good as Spider-Man can get for "Legends" for a while. My only real complaint is, as always, the price. I appreciate the added hands and the big Ultimate Green Goblin parts help to add to the package, but the only reason I think I can say this is totally worth it is I buy relatively few Marvel figures - most of which are on sale or clearance, or were 10 years ago and $6 each. In just a few short years the price of a super-articulated movie Spider-Man has more than tripled, and I have no doubt Hasbro will continue to get it as long as collectors praise $60 Revoltechs and $50 Figmas from Japan. This is probably about on par, at a fraction of the price, but it's still quite expensive for an American action figure. Having said that, if you can find a better Spider-Man figure on the shelf, buy it. You can't. So get this one.
