#3: Marvel Legends Infinite Series - The Amazing Spider-Man

Amazing Spider-Man had its ups and downs, and while I enjoyed it, Raimi's Spider-Man films have hardly been erased from my memory. One of the things I didn't like about ASM was the weird changes they made to Spidey's costume. Fortunately, the costume was been reworked since the first movie and now looks a lot more like the classic comic style. The movie won't be out for a few months, but the toys are showing up in stores. I was fortunate to find a fairly freshly unpacked case and picked up a couple figures. I've never really had what I consider to be a definitive six inch Spider-Man figure, but this one is pretty close.

It's a nice looking figure, with all the web lines sculpted in, and it captures the thin yet muscled shape of Spider-Man's physique. But where this figure really shines is in the super articulation. Basically it's as super articulated as a Toy Biz Marvel Legends figure, except for articulated toes and fingers. It even has those crazy extra shoulder swivels that you never see anymore. Thanks to double hinged knees and those new style ankle joints, Spider-Man can get into a fairly deep crouch and balance fairly easily.

The only accessories Spider-Man comes with are an extra set of hands. He's packaged with the fists attached, and the other set of hands are in the web-shooting pose with pinky and index fingers extended. This is a build a figure series, and the right arm of Ultimate Green Goblin is included, which has a piece of flame that attaches at the wrist.
