Symbiote Spider-Man Custom Marvel Legends Figure by Jin Saotome
One aspect I love about Jin Saotome's customs is that he is always thinking about poseability and making his customs as versatile and unique as possible, which brings me to his Custom Marvel Legends Symbiote Spider Man figure. As Wikipedia describes, "The Symbiotes (originally known as the Klyntar) are a fictional race of amorphous extraterrestrial parasites which appear in the Marvel Comics shared universe. The Symbiotes envelop their hosts like costumes, creating a symbiotic bond through which the host's mind can be influenced. This transformation is just what Jin has created with this highly detailed figure. Here to tell you more about this great figure is Jin himself:
"This week I bring you the stealthy Symbiote Spider-Man straight off the comic pages! Spider-Man has been meticulously hand painted with detailed brushwork, airbrushed highlights/shadows/color gradients, and other effects. All joint holes have also been filled and sculpted over for a more smoother appearance. The entire figure has been sealed with a combination of matte, satin, and gloss varnish depending on the surface. Pose Spider-Man in any martial arts pose you want and he'll look incredible doing so. You get an extra pair of fists and a special alternate 'transformation' Peter Parker head!"
The transforming Peter Parker head is my favorite part of this figure. You can see it consuming his head and I love that the eyes are pretty much all you see on his face. I wonder what Peter is thinking right at this moment? Go check out Jin's Custom Marvel Legends Symbiote Spider Man figure over on eBay!
