iO9 has posted a look at the new Play Arts Kai Marvel Spider-Man action figure from Square Enix – and they were puzzled as to why this figure needed Spider-Armor. As am I.
But then again, there’s the four little metallic pieces of armour covering his shoulders and then an extra two pieces… on either side of his pecs? I have no idea why they’re there. I guess the argument against any sort of Spider-Man armour is that his Spider-Senses let him dodge things easily enough so he doesn’t need it, but even if Peter Parker did need armour, I’m sure he’d use a lot more than just six tiny pieces that doe a really bad job of actually protecting anything vital. Giant Spider-shaped bullseye over his vital organs? Fine. But thank god a third of his pecs are armoured! It breaks up the colour scheme of the figure for no real reason, and just doesn’t add anything to the design at all. Needless tinkering on a great looking figure otherwise.
What do you think, Crawlspacers? Is this armor rad or is this armor bad?
