#108: Marvel Legends Series (12 inch) - Spider-Man

Remember when Target started carrying the 12 inch Deadpool, only to clearance it out after seemingly a week? Well, they decided to get an exclusive 12 inch version of Spider-Man in his iconic black costume, then charge ten dollars more for no good reason and I still haven't seen it go on clearance. I'm not always the most patient toy buyer, but I was patient enough to wait for it to go on sale, which eventually it did. Basically, it's a straight repaint of the standard Spider-Man, with one less alternate head. This head is a new sculpt, as the eyes on this one are flat while the standard Spidey's head has eyes with rims. The alternate head is an unmasked Peter Parker with some tendrils of the symbiote reaching up. He also gets the same three sets of hands: fists, open, and thwip pose. Remember how I said this is a repaint and that the alternate head has the symbiote tendrils? That means that this figure has the web shooters sculpted on Spidey's wrists, which the symbiote didn't have. So you can ignore those and pretend this is the symbiote costume or ignore the alternate head and pretend this is the cloth version of the costume he wore after getting rid of the symbiote. I suppose if you're really upset by the shooters, you could sand them off. Me, I'm just going to ignore them.
