Marvel Legends Edge of Spider-Verse Spider-Gwen (2015)

On the heels of my last post on the Marvel Legends Edge of Spider-Verse Series Ben Reilly Spider-Man, I though I'd crack this Spider-Gwen I'd been holding onto the last three years. Packed with far less accessories than Ben Reilly, extra hands would have made this better, but I'm okay with the unmasked portrait. And as stated on ItsAllTrue.Net, the character was barely a year old when Hasbro pushed out an action figure due to her sudden upshot in popularity. Pretty impressive.

I won't go on about the action figure community's bemoaning of Marvel Legends female's underperformance in the articulation department, but a better abdominal joint could have made a world of difference for Spider-Gwen. That said, the design looks great, and the paint apps are pretty decent for a mass produced figure like this- the webbing on the inside of the hood and undersides of the arms are admirably executed.

Below, Spider-Gwen with Ben Reilly Spider-Man from the Edge of Spider-Verse Series:
