I don't know who else has this pre-ordered (I'm betting Dave does though) but I checked my account at HLJ and it's in stock now and ready to ship. I have Spidey and a couple of Cool Girls that should arrive shortly now. I'm really looking forward to this guy. I think it's one that they should knock out of the park. I'll hopefully let you know in a week or so. In the mean time those who do have pre-orders in may want to check their account status. Hopefully you won't have too lnog to wait now either.

By the way and off topic. Did anyone else notice the Takara Batman Begins figure has been put off till April? I'm kinda wondering if we are going to see this one at all.

:horror
I've yet to come up with the rest of the remainder I'll need to pay my dealer.
It looks like I might have to put this on my credit card. :crying

But thanks for the information, I was looking at these on Ebay yesterday and wondering when they'll ship.
Yeah, I noticed that Batman Takara is delayed. Hopefully they're taking the time to make it perfect. It does relieve me a bit, I don't have the money to pay for mine yet.
I also hear that Medicom's Batman Begins is shipping soon, and that my fears are unfounded in that he'll have 30 points of articulation.

My package arrived at Kennedy Airport at 1:33 pm yesterday. I have no idea what that means as far as it's actual arrival date in Raleigh N.C. but I'm hoping/guessing for Thursday or Friday if it isn't held up in customs. That's about my normal wait when EMS makes it to the US from Japan.

Will you guys are going to still buy those medicom comic figures if Sideshow get the license like for Star wars...( which will probably happened someday...) ????

Darklord Dave
11-09-2005, 09:56 AM
I wouldn't count on SSC getting the license for Marvel 12" anytime soon. But if it were to happen, I'd bite the bullet and buy them all. It's unlikely that they'd be doing the exact same characters anyway.

But I'm counting on SSC Jedi Luke to blow the Medicom out of the water.

It's here. Won't have a chance to pull him out of the box till this evening but he looks pretty neat. Several extra hands. Costume looks great from what I can see in the packaging and the figure design is kinda' a Mcfarlane meets Ramos melange. The body shape is excellent for this figure. I'm not insane for the Peter Parker sculpt and I can't help but feel as I always do on Medicom stuff that they could do a better, or more to the point complete paint application. Again it's still in the package but from what I can see the way the gloves and boots are done this is the closest to a seamless transition I've seen on a cloth costumed figure. So far very good.

chamildav
11-09-2005, 12:40 PM
Further observation. The neck and gloves are extremely well integrated as I mentioned earlier. And while the boots do look great they have the "Wolverine" problem. Hard poly plastic that is in no way poseable. Very big problem for Spidey. How is it the guys who make this stuff haven't just copied the design that Takara uses for boot feet on the "Cool Girls" figures yet? All the things these companies swipe from each other and one of the best design elements from Takara no one else seems to want. Wierd.

And oh yeah. Thier is a round silver label on the box cover that says "Spider-Man Alien Version" in english along with some Japanese kangi that says I have no idea what. Might be a clue to the next figure we should be expecting though. I really liked the symbiote black costumed Spidey so it would be fine with me.

screamingmetal
11-09-2005, 02:32 PM
Sounds great! I can't wait until I get mine.
I've heard that the Black Symbiote Spidey can only be had by buying the regular Costume Spidey. There's some kinda UPC code or certificate or something that allows you to buy Black Costume Spidey, but only if you live in Japan. :(

I agree on the Takara Cool Girl Boots, they work great and look better then most cast boots, and this would've been the perfect place to utilize them.
I think Companies purposely try not to copy other similar product designs just for the sake pride. They don't want to admit that another company did it better then they did.

Darklord Dave
11-09-2005, 03:21 PM
I do miss the ankle articulation with the movie Spider-man but I don't know that the CG boot sleeve would make for as good looking boots when he's just standing up.

chamildav
11-09-2005, 04:33 PM
SM, Is that the deal? You can only get the Symbiote version in Japan? Heck, come to think of it you can only get any of these in Japan/Far East because of the licensing agreements. I wonder if were going to see that version on eBay soon than?
Dave, I like the CG bootsleeves and think they do look good in action poses as well as more static appearing poses. I just think they are the way to go for most "old School" superheroes. But even if a sculpted boot is used I'd like it to be in a vinyl with some flexibility. It's just hard to think of Spidey not being able to bend his ankles. It's wrong I tell you.
OT-For those who are CG fans and are on the fence on getting a couple of the rereleases best of Cool Girl figures.. I would recomend "Harley" as being a very nice redo. Improved costuming and a 2.0 body make it a nice set along with her motorcycle helmet. Also fairly happy with "Ruby" which is the redo of the Cy Girl "Electra" figure. Overall still a very neat figure, but the paint applications are not as nice as the original and I think the costume, at least on mine is not as well tailored.
Another CG that just got here, Major Motoko Kusanagi "Ninja suit" version, is okay but nothing I'd worry to much about getting if your a little short on cash or aren't a HUGE fan of TGitS, which I am. It's a nice figure, but I'm hard pressed to say it's worth the price.
Umm, and apologies on no pictures as I know some of you guys would like them. If anyone want's to host pictures I can take some and email them to you. Please let me know with a PM in the next couple of hours and I will get on it tonight.

I'd love to get both Harley and Ruby, but funds are not sufficient now, and I can't find any dealer that has Harley available.
I did buy most of Electra Parted out for about $50 from Old Joe Infirmary, It was the only way I could get one and I didn't even get the base body at that price. :(
I have the GITS Motoko, I'm a big fan of GITS Stand Alone Complex and just had to have one. I've been thinking of getting the Japan Exclusive Version just to be a completest, but Can't find it anywhere. :banghead

SM, I haven't seen any US eBay auctions or etailers selling the exclusive version. You might want to check Yahoo Japan's auction service. I saw some pics of the exclusive and I think it's more interesting than the regular release. Too bad it's so hard to get outside of Japan.
And I sympathise with tight hobby money. Easy online purchasing has made me into a very irresponsible buyer. But I have gotten some cool toys. Reselling some on eBay now too. Too much stuff around. And also too much negative cash flow. Did I mention I've gotten some cool toys?

Finally took Spidey out of the box.
First, the boots are a soft vinyl and do flex very well. They are also a tad lose and the feet are HUGE in the style of Ramos and others. But they do move and the ankle joints are tight enough that they will at least somewhat hold a pose. Way better than Wolvie's boots.

Second, besides his total of eight hands he comes with a very neat accessory I didn't know was included. He has a pair of twined McFarlane style web strands that fit in his "thwip" hands and are very nicely done.
Did these come with the movie version also?

Everything else is exactly what you expect if you have any of the other figures from Medicom. Superb articulation, high quality tailoring and costume materials and nifty packaging.
I'm going to actually try to post some pics. Wish me luck.http://panzerwerk.freeservers.com/images/spideybox.jpg

Hey it worked! looks great, I even like the Anime head!
The Medicom Movie Spider-Man didn't come with webs. It's a nice addition, I would've liked one with a fist grasping a web string. But it's medicom and they're not known for lots of accessories.
I didn't take the Movie version I have out of the box, but I plan on taking this one out. Now all I have to do is buy Venom.

chamildav
11-11-2005, 07:12 AM
If I'd thought this was going to work when I posted I would have taken better pictures. But this should give you guys the idea. He's pretty sharp.
I was really happy with the webs as I didn't expect them. I agree that Medicom doesn't pile on the accessories like DiD or bbi etc.. But the hands are great. Really nicely executed and well thought out choices. And four pair is pretty good. The "thwip" hands with webs are definately my favorites.
And when I got Spidey out of the box the first thing I thought of was hmmm.....need Venom now. And I don't even like the character. Last I looked Venom was on sale at HLJ. Maybe other places too. It's too bad that I don't think Venom will be taller than Spidey though. But the figure is massive which is good.
This is the nicest of the Marvel figures from Medicom I have or have seen in person. They seem to get better each time out. I'm curious to read what you other guys think when you get yours. I'm pretty well pleased.

My dealer says the black costume Spidey will be a regular release due out in March.

chamildav
11-11-2005, 10:38 AM
Thanks Dave for the info.. I definately want that one when it comes out. I really liked the black costume. I will however probably pass on "Scarlet Spider" if it's ever announced as I have so far managed not to order Carnage as I really dislike both characters a lot. I'm a happy non-completist on this line.
They could probably make quite a few Marvel characters I wouldn't pick up. Like pretty much any X-Men created after 1983, eternally tiny children of the first family of superheroes (But Franklin does look good for his age) and nearly all members of north of the border super teams. And a few more.
They do however need to make one off beat fan favorite, "Moon Knight". That would be a brilliant figure. Helluva a costume. Yup, Moon Knight's time must come.

I just got my Spidey today.

Overall he's great but there are a few flaws. First is that the shade of red used for the boots and Spidey head don't match up very well with color red used for the costume. Also the boots are quite large and a little loose on such small feet.

A nice plus is the toe-articulation on the feet.

I'll try to post some pics soon.



I've heard that the Black Symbiote Spidey can only be had by buying the regular Costume Spidey. There's some kinda UPC code or certificate or something that allows you to buy Black Costume Spidey, but only if you live in Japan. :(



screamingmetal,

I do believe that you are correct about the black suit Spidey. :( My figure came with the silver sticker on the box also plus a small packet with what looks like an order form for the Symbiote Spidey. It has a special order number on it but since I can't read Japaneese I'm not 100% certain. This is really going to suck if it's true. :banghead

Darklord Dave
11-17-2005, 11:03 PM
Got mine today! Have to agree about the boots - the ones on the movie version are much, much better. And this guy is very MacFarlanized. Perhaps they're intending to release a bunch of them all based on different artists? A way to get around the "limited edition" I guess.

But I do like him, despite the pointy toes and flat face. He's actually in scale with my 13" Superman if you pretend he's a 15 year old Ultimate Spiderman...

chamildav
11-18-2005, 09:13 AM
Yeah, the boots are kinda loose. If you leave him in the box it would be hard to tell though. At least that was the case when I first opened mine. They looked better under the plastic cover. They still look fine to me. And they do flex enough for some decent action poses. I may have low standards since I've owned Captain Action and Toy Biz 12" Spidey figures. This is a pretty big quality improvement for me.
The color of the head and boots on mine match the rest of the costume fairly well though. Again, maybe low standards. A perfect match on the plastic and fabric items is tough. You can always paint them and get a near perfect match. This isn't a figure I'd do any real customisation on though.
Overall still pretty frikkin' pleased.
And I ordererd Venom last night. Too bad HE isn't on the DC Direct body.
I haven't done it yet but I'm going to be posing Superman with Spidey also Dave. I want to take a couple of pics of them together. As teen Spidey I think they are more or less in scale with each other.

Darklord Dave
11-18-2005, 10:19 AM
I like the comic Spidey a lot too. The web isn't just printed on, but is slightly raised like on the movie version. The match up between the heads/hands and the costume is extremely well done. My only complaint there is that it appears they used a wash to paint the black lines on the head and hands and the lines aren't as thick as on the suit. But I can take care of that with a sharpie. But for a $150 action figure, I shouldn't have to.

And despite the rubber boots, he can actually point his toes. That's something the movie one can't do in his rubber boots.

Ugh, that ******ing postman! I was home when he drove to the mail box but he didn't even bother to get out of his truck to knock on my door, he just filled out the sorry I missed you slip and put it in my mailbox. :mad:
I called the Post Office, hopefully he'll get reprimanded for that. They said I'll have to wait until tomorrow for them to deliver since I can't make it to the Post Office for pick up.


Edit:
Well, my experience today wasn't any better. I was waiting all day and nothing came. So I went out to rake the leaves and didn't notice that the mail truck just left the mail box. I checked the door and there was nothing there so I chased down the Mail truck and told the lady that I wanted to pick up my parcel. She looked around and said she didn't have it in the truck and that she wasn't notified by the others that there was a parcel to be redelivered today. So she says I'll have to come down to the post office on Monday to pick the stupid thing up.
I was livid but it wasn't her fault because it wasn't her usual route.
But thankfully she came by to deliver the parcel in person a few hours later.
I haven't had enough time to open this one up, I plan on doing it later because I'm just too tired today.
The box looks good though.

screamingmetal
11-21-2005, 05:56 PM
I got mine out and displayed. It does have some slight flaws, the head could be sculpted less flat, I wish he didn't have holes all the way through his wrists, the feet could be smaller, and his feet could do with some heels. But I'm Very satisfied with him. He poses well and although the base body looks like crap when it's not in a costume (I've seen pictures) It looks fantastic in costume!
I also noticed that he has no zippers or Velcro, so he was sewn into his suit. No biggie really but if you want to replace the body someday you'll have some problems (The first Medicom Body I ever bought broke apart into a dozen pieces from just posing him, it was very fragile and it was a older Cromagnon body).

I'd like to get the black costume but I'm sure now that you have to buy this one and turn in the included coupon and live in Japan. I'll contact my dealer to see if he can hook me up.
If anybody has info on the black costume Spidey please let me know.

Darklord Dave

My dealer said the black costume version would be available just like this one. But he could be wrong.

Hey guys, I just registered solely to join this discussion. This was the only place I found to discuss these figures. I have the 3 Medicom Spiderman figures (Venom, Carnage, new Spidey). I just got the Spidey and aside from the big feet he is awesome.

I just wanted to chime and ask what Spiderman character would you like to see next. Has anyone heard any rumors of what the next Spidey figure will be, aside from the alien costume. I would think they would announce another soon unless they aren't making anymore. I would like to see a comic version of the Green Goblin or the Sandman.

chamildav
11-23-2005, 08:29 AM
Welcome foolkiller, I hope you find some other things of interest here beyond Medicom Spidey. This is one of the few sights I visit and post on regularly and appreciate the variety of discussion here. The SSC figures are pretty cool too if the subjects interest you. I'm a military, movie and monster sorta guy myself but I collect almost everything interesting. And I find almost everything interesting gosh darn it.
I haven't heard anything about what's coming up next in the Spidey/Marvel figures in the RAH line. They released the Spiderman figures you mentioned as well as Wolverine and Cyclops from the X-Men and it seems like we might see another mutant before we see another spider-foe. But I'd love a Green Goblin. He better come with a "Goblin Glider" and an adequate # of pumpkin bombs to seal the deal for me though. I'd also like Mysterio, Kraven and the vulture. And did I mention Black Cat? Well now I have.
My question for anyone in the know is how the Medicom license works? Is it done figure by figure with Marvel, by series (like all X-Men) or does it encompass all the Marvel properties period? It would be nice to know how this is handled. After all, I'm pulling for a Medicom Moon Knight and I wonder if it's even possible.

Oh, I'm a big 1/6 collector. I have Dragon, BBI and sideshow stuff. I'm stoked for the star wars line. I generally hang out at the OSW for 1/6th but not to much chatter around there for the Medicom Marvel stuff.

Darklord Dave
11-23-2005, 11:45 AM
Didn't I hear a rumor of Colossus or Nightcrawler being next from Medicom? Or did I dream it?

I just got Venom today, haven't had a chance to open it, but I did like Carnage and that's the only reason I bought Venom.

chamildav
11-23-2005, 12:15 PM
I hadn't heard but I was just guessing an X figure based on the releases so far which is a pretty feeble thing to base a guess on.
My wishfull thinking guess would go back to Moon Knight. Possibly Cap if they could do a bigger body.
Speaking of, If it is Colossus I hope Medicom borrows the DC direct 13" body (they won't). He'd be about right.
Nightcrawler would be interesting. I'd like to see how they'ed do his tail.
I remain completely clueless but hopeful that whatever comes next will be something I want.

Bonehead15
11-23-2005, 09:06 PM
I heard that Gambit ala Jim Lee is the next Marvel figure.

Colossus is after him with a "rumored" new 14 inch body. It's just a rumor though so don't get excited.

Darklord Dave
11-23-2005, 09:09 PM
oh yeah, Gambit sounds familiar. Where did I get Nightcrawler from?

And the bodies all seem to use different parts, so I wouldn't be surprised in a much taller Colossus, although 14" would be too tall.

The Medicom Spidey is a really nice figure. Definately my favourite next to Carnage.

The Peter Parker figure is a kit bashed figure made out of the Medicom Spidey Peter Parker head, Medi 301 Massive body. The other bits and parts of the costume is taken from other figures.

Here's a Carnage

Scarlet,

Like your fellow buddies, I also hope that Medicom continues the Marvel Characters. Several figures on my Medicom wish list are, Comic-Wolverine in his brown/yellow digs, comic-Logan, comic -Rouge and comic-Storm.
But I'ts been a while since Medicom has prducted any RAH Marvel characters. I hope Medicom still has production plans for 2007. Any Intel on your part?

Medicom will be producing a RAH Spawn figure for 2007.

Currently my Medicom RAH collection consist of;
Kaneda (from the movie AKIRA. Only 300 made world wide)
Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake
Rocketeer Ver 1
Rocketeer Ver 2

Yeah - I was iffy about him for the longest time, but the pics from Seth Gecko and WeaponX on this thread really sold me. They're better than the official pics from Medicom - and also - I know that that is exactly what I'm getting for my money.

The Mike
11-26-2006, 08:05 PM
I wouldn't count on SSC getting a 12" Marvel license not because of MediCom but because I'm sure that Hasbro will be quite a roadblock with their ICONS line which are also 12". SSC would have to "sublease" the line like they did with the Star Wars 12" line. That has to be a lengthy process and I wonder if SSC would consider it a worthwhile move.

As for the "same" figures issue, I doubt it'd stop them but I'd love for two things to occur: 1. I'd love for the figures that are masked to include the head adapter with their civilian likeness. 2. I'd love for SSC to start with the Silver Age figures and the Kirbyesque look for the majority of the figures.

I tried to get into Marvel Legends and couldn't. The ICONS line just brings back the same ol' bad taste in my mouth. I pray that SSC ends up with a Marvel line but I'm not holding my breath for anytime soon...

Darklord Dave
12-04-2006, 07:27 PM
I wouldn't say that the ICONS line precludes SSC from doing a 1/6 line, since there have been distinctions between toys and collectibles before (ala Van Helsing). And Marvel cuts up their licenses into very small chunks it seems.

However with SSC importing the Medicoms I don't see them trying to get into them, developing new body styles, etc.

I'd say it's a must have if you're into Todd McFarlanes original Venom style from his first story in Spider-Man 300.

It's pretty much a perfect replica of that art in action figure form, but many like myself would've prefered to see a Mark Bagley style of Venom used for the design of the figure.

It's still a pretty nice figure though, but I'd also recommend the Icons Venom which is alot cheaper and also pretty cool when you consider the actual price point.

When it comes to good versions of Spider-Man and Wolverine, I think you can count on an eventual sellout.
