Truth be told, I prefer the costume Ben Reilly, genetic clone of Peter Parker, wore when he was just web slinging as '"Spider-Man", but I couldn't pass this guy up twice. I have a respectable collection of Spider-Man action figures, some of which I've not shown here, and I thought he'd make a unique addition.
Unlike the Marvel Universe House of M Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, this figure has cut joints in his thighs. I'm fairly certain Scarlet Spider was released before Spider-Man 2099 however, and am unsure why he wouldn't get the same treatment.
Visually, I like the wrist bands & utility belt- perhaps it reminds me of the Spider-Man television show from the 70's starring Nicholas Hammond, in which Spider-Man donned a utility belt & wrist band occasionally. I don't even mind the hoodie so much, though I would have preferred it pulled up over his head (no, I'm not kidding). I find the colors choices odd, I suppose, but bright colors & baggy shirts were en vogue during the 90's, and I have pictures to prove it :D
Marvel Universe Scarlet Spider with Hasbro Marvel Legends Scarlet Spider...
Am I boring you with all this Spider-Man stuff?? I'm just kiddin'- I don't really care :D More later!
