Marvel Legends Series Silk & Ashley Barton Spider-Girl (Web-Slinging Heroines)

It's the ladies turn. Here's a look at Silk and the Ashley Barton Spider-Girl.

Silk looks as if she stepped right out from the comics. A great looking figure. I really love how her colours "pop". The red and light grey contrast well against the black. The paint apps are good. The lines came out nice and clean for the most part. My figure has some blemishes unfortunately. The body reuses the Kate Bishop Hawkeye body. It suits her well. One thing about this particular body though is I feel that the legs are too long. Some poses look off. She's got a great head sculpt. Great paint too. The eyes especially were very well done. She's even got painted eyelashes. Her mask was sculpted and has some wrinkles in it. Her hair has great detail. I love the shape of it. It's wind swept and I like the loose locks in front.  

Further evidence that Hasbro is taking the Spider-Verse direction. This is the Ashley Barton Spider-Girl from Earth-807128 (Old Man Logan's world). I don't know much about her. So according to Wiki she's the daughter of Hawkeye and Tonya Parker (youngest daughter of Peter Parker). No wonder the name sounded familiar. And it also explains a little her Spider-abilities. The figure has a great head sculpt. I think she has a good likeness. The mask was sculpted which is nice. Another nice bit of detail are the sculpted studs on her ears. The paint apps are good. The design around her left eye looks to be lacking some paint but I'll let it slide since her hair covers most of that side. Speaking of which, I like her well detailed short hairstyle. It's got some light brown highlights in it too. The body is similar to Silk's. The upper torso is different and new I think. It conforms closer to the abs portion. She has quite a shapely chest. The paint apps are good. The lines and logo on her costume came out nice and clean. I like she has the gun metal trimming at her shoulders, glove sleeves and thighs. It's accurate to the comics.

Only Silk comes with accessories. She has an alternate unmasked head and a loose face mask. She also comes with the left leg of the Space Venom BAF. Ashley comes with the torso. I really wish they come with interchangeable hands as well like their male counterparts. 

Check out her unmasked head. It's a thing of beauty. Wow! Simply gorgeous! Amazing sculpt! Again the paint apps are great here. Her eyes are so captivating. I also like her lips. Her hair is the same as on the default head.

Articulation. They both have a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Ashley can look up and down very well. Silk cannot look up much due to her hair. Head rotation is also hindered by her hair. She can look down well though. 

Comparison shots.

Love Silk! Awesome figure! Ashley is great but I need to find out more about her to be more enthusiastic of her. Both great additions to the growing Spider-Verse. Thanks for viewing!

Do you know if Silk's head will fit perfectly on the SDCC Psylocke?
