The un-boxing of Black Suit Spider-Man!



Spider-Man Black Suit (1/6 Hot Toys)

Here's a post I started way back during the final days of July '12 but never got around to actually finishing it. Was to lazy and totally forgotten about it until I saw the 'draft' icon next to this particular entry. Anyway, let's get on with this....

I wanted this figure the very moment Hot Toys announced they were releasing it all those months ago. A Black Suit Spidey that comes with that very moody Peter Parker/Tobey McGuire headsculpt.....pretty much what geeks want from an otherwise abysmal 3rd Raimi Spidey movie. I did want the red/blue Spidey 1/6 figure from Hot Toys but that one didn't come with a removable head thus rendering any dreams of popping on a Tobey headsculpt useless.

I like the outer brown box that protects the actual packaging inside. It does the job well. 'Nuff said.

The actual packaging is awesome! Not only you get to feel that uniform pattern on the box, you'd also get that cool 'spider' emblem sticking out. It's actually a thin layer of rubber shaped like a spider pasted on the front packaging...well, you get the drift.

At the back of packaging are the normal 'credits' aka who's responsible for what within the Hot Toys team bla bla bla....and that cool Black Spidey pose. I have my doubts though on posing my figure like that....I mean, won't I accidently tear Spidey's crotch off?

Here's a view from the top of the packaging.

At the side box view, we get to see a nice portrait of the Tobey McGuire/Peter Parker headsculpt we're gettin' with the figure. What a way to sell this figure. I reckon most people would want this 1/6 Black Spidey figure for that particular headsculpt.....including your truly!

One you pop the shoe-box cover open, you'd be greeted with this excellent inner sleeve art which shows Spidey battling the Sandman diorama (more on that later) with a a little bit of back story to those uninitiated.

Black suit corrupted by alien symbiote....accidently/stolen by Eddie Brock (depending on which version you prefer)......you know the drfit. If you're not familiar with the Black Spidey suit history you can always check wikipedia out or something right?

Once you get that annoying inner sleeve art out of the way, you've finally made it to the 1st figure tray.....congratulations! This is where Black Spidey is.....feast yer eyes!

For the record, I've always had this intention to immediately swap that Spidey head with the Tobey headsculpt as soon as I pop them out of their packaging.

The second/lower tray houses the Sandman diorama (which we've first seen in that sleeve art just a while ago). I think this particular plastic piece contributed a lot to the final price that Hot Toys slapped on us collectors. Honestly, I would've preferred if they omitted this and lowered down on the retail price. I could live without it.......but nevertheless it's a great accessory to those looking for great display ideas.

Ahh, here it is....as promised, Tobey McGuire's head on the Black Spidey figure! Enjoy the rest of the pics guys and gals! Make mine Marvel!!!!!!!!!

When shopping for Men's suits, the color is a very important factor to consider. You need to choose which one will help you look good.
