Review: Marvel Legends Avengers: Infinity War 'Iron Spider' Toy

Spider-Man is getting a new suit in the movie Avengers: Infinity War where he will be called the 'Iron Spider'.

Hasbro has now released a toy of the figure from its Marvel Legends line and it's very impressive to say the least.

If you are unfamiliar with the toy industry, the Marvel Legends figurine line are usually around 6 inches tall in height and they have loads of articulation. It is pretty much Marvel's version of the Star Wars Black Series toy line. 

I managed to only get Iron Spider in this first wave but the full line includes Iron Man, Captain America, Proxima Midnight, Taskmaster, Marvel's Songbird and Serpent Society.

Aside from Iron Man, every other figure in the line also has a body part for Thanos and you can built him to complete him.

Anyway, the Iron Spider toy I got this week stands at around 5.5 inches tall and he should be in scale with the rest of the movie characters.

Since Tom Holland is shorter than Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr, this is one main reason why the figure is under the standard 6 inches.

The design of the toy is really great as it is movie accurate as far as I can tell. There are no inaccurate colors used on the toy and the overall look of the figurine is stunning to look at. 

I also love how shiny the toy is. Sure the toy is not as shiny as an Iron Man figurine, but Iron Spider's colors do pop out if you shine the figure with very bright lights. 

The texture seems to be the same material as the one that Hasbro has used in other Spider-Man figures in the past.

I think Iron Spider could have looked shinier if different materials were used, but that's just a minor nitpick.

Toy collectors will be very happy to know that this figure has loads of articulation. He has double jointed elbows, double jointed knees, ankle pivot, wrist rotation, upper and lower torso rotation and his neck can even move in 360 degrees!

The only thing he sadly cannot do is use his head to look up and down. To get around this though, it's easier just to move his upper body up and down to make him look in those directions. 

The only flaw I can say about the toy is that it sadly comes without any additional accessories outside of just Thanos' leg.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming toy I bought last year also came with an extra head and pair of hands.

The fingers don't have any articulation in the Iron Spider toy and I feel the toy should have come with a Peter Parker face sculpt as an extra head. Outside of these flaws, I like the overall look and design. 

All in all, the Iron Spider toy from Hasbro is decent because it's movie accurate and looks great. Spider-Man toy collectors around the world should definitely try and pick this up if you can find it.

Verdict: 4/5 stars
