The Amazing Spider-man 6" Movie The Lizard

You've seen Spidey, now here's The Lizard.

I don't like the Lizard's design, but I like the figure. I think it looks better than his appearance on screen. He's got a great headsculpt. Its a little small but the likeness is spot on. His face is supposed to be of a lighter green but I think the dark green suits him better. It makes him look meaner. His eyes are of the wrong colour. They should be yellow instead of blue. His longish neck gives him a more lizard like appearance. He's got a thin body which makes him look more nimble. There's a great amount of detail on the figure. Practically the whole of his body has sculpted detail. He's got scales, folded skin and veins showing. Due to how some of his joints are, there will be visible holes on the figure. The paint application is good. I like how the colours blend on his torso. A minor gripe is he looks segmented when you view him from the front. His nails are also unpainted. He has some trouble standing but you can easily position his tail to help support him. The tail comes as a separate piece in the package. It attaches very securely to the figure. I haven't been able to remove it again. 

He's got four fingers on his right hand and five on his left. Two fingers on his right are fused together making it look like one. 

He comes with three reptile "sidekicks". They too have great detail on them.


 He also comes wih a base.

The Lizard has great articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, lower neck hinge, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, tail swivel and hinge, ball like peg hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle swivel and hinge. The upper neck hinge has very limited use.

Some comparison shots. My favourite Lizard figure is the old Toy Biz one from the Web Force line. (one on the right)

I imagined The Lizard to look something like Killer Croc in the movie.

Standing upright, he towers over our heroes.

I think the Lizard is worth picking up. Not only is he a great figure...

... you can also use him as a prop and scare kids. Lol. Thanks for viewing!
