Marvel Legends Space Venom BAF

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Space Venom BAF. 

First the parts list:

Head - Hobgoblin
Torso - Ashley Barton Spider-Girl
Right Arm - Miles Morales
Left Arm - Peter Parker
Right Leg - Electro
Left Leg - Silk

Venom (Flash Thompson) has been tagging along with the Guardians of the Galaxy in recent times. He's appearing in his own comic called Venom: Space Knight and he's been labelled an Agent of the Cosmos. This figure is based on the look after the "Planet of the Symbiotes" story arc. You can kinda see a "knight" concept in his appearance. He's got a great head sculpt. His head looks like a helmet and has a metal like plate covering his face. All of the details were sculpted and well painted. That chin piece is long. He probably can stab someone with it. His body is all new and big. I love the size of it! I have a good mind of getting a custom done of the original Venom on this body. The body has nice sculpted detail. There are "armour" pieces at his shoulders, forearms and knees. You can find angular detail in the black areas as well. The spider logo and and majority of the white areas too were sculpted. Great stuff! There's some white bleeding going on. Aside from that the paint apps are good. The Guardians logo on the shoulders were very well done. One area I don't quite like of this design is the white on the back his legs. They seem like sneakers to me. I would have preferred if it were all black. 

A close-up of his face. His eyes are so tiny you can hardly see them in the rest of the images. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. He can look up and down well. The white piece on the back oh his hands restricts the wrist hinge. That is he cannot flex his hand outwards. He can spread his legs pretty well. 

Comparison shots. 

Great figure! I really love the size of it. Good articulation too. Thanks for viewing!
