I think this is a very strong piece . It’s dynamic . Steel spider legs . Nobody would ever give you that quality elsewhere . Base is battle damaged yet not overwhelming .

I’d display this beside Hulkbuster in a heart beat . For me it’s one of the top pieces shown by XM

1/3 Thor
Iron Spiderman
Thanos and Death
Magik

These are top choices imo

I'd change two things though

1. Positioning: I don't like how Spider-Man is looking down. Definitely prefer more towards you or even a little upward

2. The Base: I'm not even sure what that base is supposed to be. Sideshow's Version had good ideas for it.
if they made those changes, I'd be interested. Spidey himself looks fine in terms of sculpt and paint.

Another very awesome feature I just found out was that the metal spider arms can all be posed in various positions because they contain joints in arms . It gives you more control on the action of this piece . I’m close to buying this now

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

That is a pretty cool feature!

Overall though I'm a little disappointed with this after waiting so long for the reveal. It's not bad, but it's just not for me. I think the sideshow exclusive will always be my favorite even though I don't own it.

I hated the arms on sideshow.

so the angle of Spiderman himself can be adjusted?

No he’s fixed but his arms move.

Ok so it is confirmed that arms are metal and they do articulate at 4 diff points now heres something I noticed . If you decide to not have any of the arms touching the base his pose makes no sense because hes in a crouched position implying something is holding him up. From what I can see he pins at knee to the base . I love the concept and the fact we can pose the arms but it has to work for display and more than one option . Id have to keep back arm always touching the base kind of defeats the purpose of articulation .
