Marvel Legends Series 3.75" Spider-Man Noir

More new Marvel Legends. This time of the 3.75" variety. First up is Spider-Man Noir.

The 3.75" line is now branded as a Marvel Legends Series. I think it's a good move which might get more exposure for the line. And hopefully we'll get more new figures. What's concerning though is the price which has increased. And the figures are not getting any better. In fact they have been on the decline. If this trend continues I may have to quit the line and concentrate on the 6" line.

The figures now come in new packaging. The style of the art and card back is similar to the 6" line. I love the red lighting used for the images and it contrasts well against the black background.

Spider-man Noir is a different take on the character from what we're used to. He cannot stick to walls and he used a gun. He wears a black jacket and boots, and dark grey pants here. The body reuses the Battlefield Captain America body from The First Avenger line which suits him very well. His whole attire is textured and has great detail. Man those were good times, getting a figure of this quality. I'm very glad this has been reused. The plastic used is quite sturdy. I had feared the knees would be weak but fortunately that is not the case. The head sculpt is superb. I especially like the seams on the mask. There's also nice wrinkle detail at the mouth area. The eyes were sculpted and is part of his mask. I would have preferred if he had the goggles. 

He does NOT come with any accessories. He really should have had a gun at least. He has those trigger finger hands after all. No matter. I passed him some of Nick Fury's stuff. Now we can have him in his trenchcoat look. He looks pretty good in it. Fury's handgun fits well in his hands too. 

He's got great articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure! He's one who's deserving of being in a Marvel Legends 3.75" line. Thanks for viewing!

I think I would buy 4 and use them as the League of Shadows or something like that.

You guys aren't seeing the obvious--change out the boots and head, and this is a great base for a Dan Ketch Ghost Rider custom.
