Thomas returns to the Spider-Verse to review Hasbro’s impressive double-pack
Students at the Midtown School of Science and Technology, Peter Parker and MJ experience the powers of Spider-Man firsthand when the web-slinger must suit up to take down the Vulture.
The newest Marvel Legends 2-pack has hit the European shores! With Spider-Man Far From Home being released next month, it seems fitting to get some new figures from the previous Spider-Man movie! This 2-pack includes the title character and MJ!
MJ comes with 2 interchangeable heads and 2 additional interchangeable hands, Spider-Man comes with 2 additional interchangeable hands.
Let’s start with Spidey, the texture of the suit feels great, however, I’m not sure about the red color they used, it seemed a different shade in the movie, the blue is good though! The yellow jacket is not removable, which is a bit too bad, the use of fabric would have been smart there. And if I recall correctly we only see Spidey wearing the jacket whilst locked inside the Department of Damage Control (D.O.D.C.) facility.
This figure has 24 points of articulation. It’s not a bad figure but I don’t know, something feels off, though it’s definitely a cool figure.
Now MJ, it’s the reason I bought this pack and the two head sculpts are spot on, it looks exactly like Zendaya. I really love that the two heads have each a different facial expression and different hair cut. It’s with figures like this that you know Hasbro can do just as good or even better than S.H. Figuarts!
As for the outfit, MJ has it in the movie except the t-shirt isn’t the same (I had to check promotional stills to be sure!) but I think it’s a small detail that is not a problem. The outfit itself is nicely detailed and has good paint apps. The figure has 20 points of articulation. My one complaint about MJ is the open hands they included, it feels extremely weird, like if she wanted to use the Force or something.
Overall, this is a great set for Spider-Man fans and well worth the retail price just for the MJ figure alone!
The Future of the Force. The future of pop culture writing.
