Hasbro Ultimate Spider-Man Iron Spider Armor Spider-Man Action FigureFigures like Iron Spider Armor Spider-Man exist in an unfortunate position in the toy line - they're designed for kids, but were given some pretty poor distirbution. Also, nobody cared - I'm a big fan of the whole cheapo $6 figure idea, although it's feeling like Hasbro has already abandoned the concept outside of Star Wars almost immediately. This figure is from wave 2, wave 3 is available online, and as far as I could tell nobody on eBay or any forums were clamoring for it. It's a shame, they're pretty nice little weird figures if you can get past the fact the outfits have been done a few times over.

Previously used with a different outfit, this is one of two figures to debut with this sculpt - the third is another Ultimate Spider-Man which I'll no doubt buy if I ever see in the wild. The figure is overly muscular, but fairly solid and quite stable - he has no problems standing around on your desk but totally lacks foot holes for display stands. (This is unfortunate.)

As with before, you get 5 joints. A ball-jointed neck is joined by swiveling arms and legs, with a pose that probably won't be conducive to fitting in any vehicles. Spidey isn't exactly a hero that needs a car, though, so really the average kid would probably improvise some rope web and swing Spidey all over the house. (It's what I would have done, anyway.) the figure is molded in a deep red with some metallic gold highlights. It's not exactly striking, but it is really cool to see Hasbro take a page out of the blind-box/urban vinyl world and just paint the living daylights out of a single mold in a kid line. The spider accessory is, as always, confusing and weird. The snap-on web shield is pretty slick and is well-hidden in the packaging.

I figure this line will be phased out soon, although I'd love to see this mold given more weird clear color treatments like Night Mission Spider-Man. That thing was awesome. This Iron Spider Armor will no doubt be more of a crowd-pleaser, but to be honest they could do a clear green Spider-Man with white hands, white feet, and a silver head and I'd be doing cartwheels. I appreciate they're doing deco from the existing canon, but there's nothing wrong with really weird figures. Iron Spider Armor (the word "Spider-Man" oddly does not appear on his name plate) is well worth the five or six bucks, but I assume most people who read columns like this have a dozen Spidey figures and don't need one more in their home. It brings little new to the table but its novel simplicity is charming and welcome.
