Marvel Legends Infinite Series Spider-Man - SPIDER-GIRL REVIEW !!!

Remember that old saying "good things come to those who wait" ? Well I've patiently waited for Spider-Girl to arrive at retail rather than paying those outrageous prices people were charging on Ebay when she first came out . I purchased her at a local Walmart for $ 19.99. If I had purchased this figure about four months earlier from Ebay I probably would've paid twice as much . However now the prices on Ebay are starting to drop on her. So if you still don't have this figure, if you still can't find her at retail then it is now okay to go to Ebay or Amazon as the prices on her are now dropping . As for Spider-Girl the character, she is of an alternate future universe, the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane . You can read more about Spider-Girl the character on Wikipedia . As for the action figure, it is already one of my most favorite Marvel Legend female figures .

Spider-Girl is the variant or chase figure of this series Black Cat figure, which I reviewed earlier this year. Hasbro gave variant / chase figures a new name however, labeled "running change". There is a lot to like about Spider-Girl once you remove her from the packaging . Instead of being given the basic female body sculpt, she is given the body sculpt of a teenage female. This is very neat because of her age. I love how her hair is sculpted , the pony tail is soft plastic. Nice facial details for a change with pink lipstick instead of the basic red . She has nice articulation , her head can move in all directions . Plus her hands are made as if she's ready for battle. Her left is a closed fist and her right is an open palm displaying a web shooting type pose . I love the silvery white streaks of the spider on her costume.
Also I prefer this look of hers over the original . The original looks as if someone took Spider-Man's head and displayed it onto a woman's body . This version of Spider-Girl is way better than the original in my opinion .

As for accessories, Spider-Girl does not come with none of her own, although she does come with the torso of this series build a figure piece Ultimate Green Goblin . You can also get this exact same piece from the Black Cat figure for those whom may not know. Even though this series is in the six inch height scale, as you can see in the pic below Spider-Girl stands exactly right at five inches tall. I love this concept, since she is a teenager of course she is not going to be six inches tall like the Black Cat figure, whom is a grown woman whereas Spider-Girl is still somewhat of a kid .
Speaking of height , in the pic below you can see there is not much height difference between Spider-Girl and the Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales figure , whom is also a teenager but is a male . Hasbro is really coming along nicely with Peter Parker's successors .
                                                         FINAL   THOUGHTS
( 1 ) ARTICULATION - Excellent articulation . Even without an ab crunch she is still a cool figure. Does not really need an ab crunch because of her diminutive stature .
( 2 ) STANDING  ABILITY - Not sure if it's just only my Spider-Girl figure or all of them, her right foot is bent just a little, sort of interfering with proper balance. However with some posing adjustments you can make her stand very well without falling .
( 3 ) WHAT I LIKE BEST ABOUT THIS SPIDER-GIRL FIGURE ? It's hard to pick just one feature that stands out above everything else in particular . But if I must say, probably the look and feel of the figure is what mostly stands out. The feel of her being 100% accurate to a teenage female body frame to which she is.
( 4 ) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? The only thing that bothered me was the issue I mentioned with her right foot in the Standing Ability category . Everything else is just fine .
( 5 ) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? The issue I have with the right foot . This is nearly a perfect action figure in my opinion .
( 6 ) GRADING  SCALE - On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this figure a 9.8 . The minus is for the right foot issue.
( 7 ) FINAL  ANALYSIS - I'm glad I waited for Spider-Girl to come to retail . She is definitely worth the wait . Plus for those of us that love both the Spider-Man comics and these Marvel Legend figures, it feels good to add another one of Peter Parker's successors to my collection . For those of you that still do not have this figure, you may want to purchase her ASAP while she's at retail price before she is gone from retail, then you'll have to revert back to the internet probably paying higher prices .


  1. Congrats on finally getting her!

  2. Thanks John !!!!i just decided to wait to I see her in person at retail rather than buying her off the internet at the prices I mentioned .
