Today I have another review for everyone! Join me as we take a look at the Marvel Universe Spider-Man 2099 Figure Review!
Other figures that are in the same wave (wave 12) are Captain Marvel, Doc Samson, Hulk (World War), Modular Armor Iron Man, and Spider-Woman.
The packaging is the standard packaging for the Marvel Universe 3 3/4 inch figures. On the top right of the card, you can see some figure art and then the figure is displayed nicely in the blister. That is what I like the most about the packaging for this line.
On the back, you get some more art and it reads:
In a future ruled by a corrupt and profit-mad corporation, Earth is starved for heroes.SPIDER-MAN 2099 is the first of many to fight back against the scheming of Alchemax. Granted his powers in a laboratory accident, he fights the company from within, and uses his technical genius to keep his identity hidden from the high-tech Public Eye security forces.
Out of The Box
Once you free the figure from his plastic prison your eyes catch on to the metallic blue paint that his whole body is covered in. It gives the figure a sort of futuristic look. The figures joints all feel pretty loose, which I was not too thrilled about.
This figure is a repaint of the black costume Spider-Man and the Iron Spider-Man. He does come with the figure stand which I wish all the Marvel Universe figures would come with. It seems like that is not the case now a days though. Sigh. For accessories, he comes with a translucent clip on webbing that was used for almost all of the other Spider-Man figures.
The articulation on this figure is ok, but nothing really special. He has:
- A ball joint head
- Ball joint shoulders
- Swivel biceps
- Hinge elbows
- Swivel wrists
- Ball joint torso
- Ball joint hips
- Double joint knees
- Swivel hinge ankles
The ankles don’t really hinge at all. Kind of a disappointment. All of the other joints work pretty well though the cape does get in the way with upper body movements. The swivel in the biceps are both very loose on both arms, making posing quite difficult.
I would have liked to see tighter joints and better ankles and then this figure would be light years better.
The paint for this figure is mostly that metallic blue and the red accents on his chest, arms, and face. I love the metallic paint as said above. The red looks nice on the blue and really stands out. My figure’s red paint is a little bit sloppy on the chest (see picture). The chest paint kind of reminds me of the Punisher chest.
So the sculpt is just a repaint so it is really nothing to talk about. I do want to point out that the spikes on his arms allow him to hold the clip on web really tightly. I like this.
UPDATE: eBay is your best bet for finding this figure.
