So I got these two bad boys yesterday, the Velocity Suit Spider-Man and the Spider-Armor Mk III (aka the Ends of the Earth armor). And I have to say, I'm in love. Not only are they a great expansion to my Gamerverse collection, but they are welcome additions to my ever-growing Spider-Verse.
The Spider-Armor Mk III is a suit I've been waiting for in figure form since I read the Ends of the Earth arc back in 2012. It took 8 years, but I finally have this guy, and I couldn't be happier.
The Velocity suit, now that's one that grew on me. When I first saw it announced as a pre-order bonus for Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4, I was like, "Nah." But when I got the game, and saw it in action, and then read the comic behind its creation, I gained a new appreciation for the duds. It looks really sleek, cool, and it's earned it place among my Legends.
Now the only drawback I can think of is that there's no interchangeable hands. Honestly, at this point in the game, Hasbro knows better, and I hope an oversight like this doesn't happen again. It really limits posing and what I can in my videos, you know?
That being said, I can't think of any other reason to dislike these figures. Definitely a must-have for Spider-Man fans and Legends collectors alike! They get an Ultimate from me!
As for the web effects that each Spidey came with, well, all I can say is I wish I'd had them years ago! (Demoed beautifully on the new Vulture figure below!)
