It's not common that Hasbro painted actual emotion on the Mighty Muggs in some sort of comic emote, but Spidey here actually has a visual representation of his spider sense, tingling. I dig it. This tiny vinyl figure lacks the "webbing" of his costume, presenting the figure in a much simpler, even more stylized version of his famous costume. Molded in red with white and black, this may be one of the simplest takes on Peter Parker's alter-ego, but I have to say the six "spider sense" marks really makes it one of the most fun.
I feel I should tell you something useful-- so let's talk about feet. The bottom of his right foot has a black "Mighty Muggs" symbol, while the right has sculpted copyright info, plus a five-digit number painted in white. In my case, it's 12061. This is basically the figure's date of production-- this is how you decode it. The first digit (1) is the year, it's the final digit of the current year, which is 2011. The next three digits represent the date (206), so in this case it's July 25. The final digit (1) is actually not yet known-- it might have to do with time, or the factory at which it's produced. But in short, the figure itself has enough data so you know it was stamped out July 25, 2011.
This is basically an art piece, with articulated arms and big eyes. If you had one of these that stood 12-inches tall and hung out on a pedestal, you could probably convince your friends it was a $500 art piece. (Get on that, Hasbro.) I like this one a lot, specifically because of the emotional "sense" marks. I'd love to see this expanded to include other symbols from comics or anime and manga, but it might be something we won't see more of in here. Anyway, good figure, nice set. Oh, and he's about 3-inches tall.
