Marvel Legends Spider-Man Wave 2 2017 – Vulture
What better way to dive into the movie series characters of this awesome Spider-Man Homecoming wave, than with the movies villain, Vulture! Now, we are going to take a look at Vulture in two parts, as a figure, and then paired with his wings as the build a figure. I know this is stretching the bounds of what might make sense, but it’s my website and I can do pretty much whatever I want. Consider it a perk of paying the hosting costs. That said, I haven’t seen this movie yet, it’s not out yet, so I have no emotional attachment to this very alien looking character. As Spider-Man villains go, this is #notmyvulture. But hey, ya wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts! Michael Keaton is bringing this Spider-Man Sinister Six staple to life on the big screen for the first time ever and I’m sure he’s going to do a great job with him. Until we all get to see it though, we have this figure and a few trailers to puzzle out how he put together this costume among other things. Since the figure is the costume at this point, let’s check him out. Remember too folks, 7/7/17, Spider-Man Homecoming hits theaters!
- The sculpt detail here is once again incredible, especially for a movie figure. There is leather strapping and buckles all over the place.
- Fleece collar detail is spectacular, again, highly detailed.
- The evil green beady eyes inside the helmet are downright unsettling. Unsettling on an action figure is not an easy thing to pull off.
- The claw feet are beefy, add balance and an overall sinister look to the figure.
- I don’t have a full 2 hours of screen time to compare the character to, but from screen caps and trailers, Hasbro has once again hit a home run with film to plastic transfer here, Vulture looks great and movie screen perfect!
- Not part of this review, but a little spoiler, the BAF wings ….are just so freakin’ cool.
- Articulation is solid overall and not limited by sculpting or figure design.
- How is there not an alternate unmasked Michael Keaton head here!!
This Vulture figure, while impressive and packed with little details is only part of a whole. That whole is completed by buying 7 total figures, this whole Spider-Man Legends wave. We are going to explore the full Vulture experience in a few days with a full set of built wings (they are really just epic, trust me), but for now. Is Vulture worth it to buy if you aren’t intending to get the wings? I like the figure, I’d say go for it. He looks good next to Spidey. The green beady eyes along are menacing enough to warrant a purchase.
Vulture is available for retail price today at Amazon. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Our friends at BigBadToyStore have him up for pre-order too!
