The Amazing Spider-man 6" Movie Edition Spider-man (Interchangeable Head)


Here's a look at the 6" Amazing Spider-man movie figure with interchangeable head. This figure was a Walmart exclusive and was not available at local retail. Thanks to a friend for getting one for me. 



 
The main reason for getting this figure is for the unmasked Peter Parker head. There is some likeness to Andrew Garfield from certain angles. But overall it looks like an mean older guy. There's some bronze mixed in with the brown of his hair which makes it look wierd. 
























This figure (the one on the left) is almost the exact same figure as the Whipping Web Line Spider-man. There's a difference in their hands. This figure comes with a closed right fist and an open left hand while the previous figure has an open right hand and a "thwipp" left hand.


Accessories.  He comes with a backpack, a skateboard, the interchangeable head and a base (not pictured). There's an elastic strap on the backpack so the skateboard can be attached to it. I'm not sure why anyone would do that as it'll probably weigh him down. 
























The wheels on the skateboard are wobbly and Spidey has some trouble balancing on it. 


 
Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows,  wrist swivel and hinge, torso pivot, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.




























Comparison shots.



 
The costume for the Amazing Spider-man 2 has been revealed and it looks closer to the comics. I think lots of people prefer that over this costume. I know I do. Still, you might want to pick this figure up for the unmasked head and accessories. Thanks for viewing!

For a 6 inch action figure, the head sculpt is considered pretty good :)
