No matter how hard they try to make something look new and original, sometimes it just does not work. Worse is the name they give these altered Spiderman toy action figures. What kind of name is City Nimrod? All I can say is poor Spiderman. I don’t know what Spiderman did to deserve this. Maybe people were disappointed with Spiderman 3.
The package includes pictures of Spiderman, Batman, Spiderman on a Beyblade, Batgirl, Spiderman with the black suit, Batman Beyond, Batman Beyond, the animated series Batman and the 11 inch Army Guy.
Ok, the 11 inch Army Guy isn’t really on the package, I just needed to fill that space. This is quite the assembly of well known characters all on one box. There is no need for Batman to be on the cover when both characters are based on Spiderman. That is not even including the fact that Spiderman is with Marvel and Batman is with DC.
The first one is a Sai. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this weapon, it is the weapon Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles uses. Why Spiderman or Venom/Black Suit would use a Sai I have no idea.The second is a defensive web shield. On the positive side, it is something the real Spiderman is more likely to use, but it is not really a weapon. He can still block to his heart’s content; that is, unless he was trying to block a stabbing motion. It might get through one of the many holes in the web shield.
The problem is, the handy holes in the fist don’t actually hold the weapons. The weapons were just not made for them. The only way you can get them to fit is to slide them between the fingers of the open hand. Well, at least it leaves their other fist free to lay the beats down on each other. Just don’t expect them to keep a good hold on their weapons unless you jam them in and glue them on.
