I picked up this Big Time Spidey at the end of last December, but still haven't read any of this storyline, in which Peter loses his spider-sense and must use an armored suit to better protect himself. Regardless, this figure's appeal to me is his all black suit. I've bought this Spider-Man buck first introduced on the Pizza Spidey at least five times now, and in spite of some legitimate complaints regarding the hips and abdominal articulation, I do like it overall. That said, I'm certainly looking forward to the new Vintage Spider-Man Wave Spidey, which appears to have the articulation we've been asking for.
The green paint apps are mostly clean, and this is a better looking Big Time Spidey than the 2012 Arnim Zola Wave version. We get three pairs of hands this time, and a web line. Sure this is just a repaint, but it's a definite improvement. Yes, a deeper ab crunch and hips would have been nice, but this figure can do a lot. I somewhat regret not picking up the black costume Spider-Man when I had the chance, but Big Time Spidey kinda makes up for that to me.
