A year and counting

Hi folks,

It's been a year since my last post. I have been real lazy (and busy at work). It is bad to be in a foreign land where toys (the kind I am interested in) are not easily found. Been only back home once, and thanks to my many good buddies, got myself a stash of toys during a year of absence.

Think for the Spidey toys, nothing very exciting has been happening. The one worthy mention is that Hasbro reissued 2 new versions of the black Spidey. The one worthy of mention is the one from the BAF Red Hulk wave. I got myself a couple of those. I should do a review of it sometime soon, but I have not my old black Spideys to take comparison pics with. All in all a great figure with the exception of the non-articulated fingers and the hunch pose of the neck/ back.

Then there is this new Spidey wave of toys with the McG Venom, Tarantula and Juggy. Got my buddy to get me a set but I have not collected them. Will not be back for another 6 months or so, so I hope I get some time to write something about those soon.

Hasbro has been taking a more enthusiastic stand on the 3.75" figs and has slowed down on the 6". This is a sad thing. But then they are releasing the Secret Wars (my favourite Marvel crossover) figures which I cannot miss. We'll see how this goes.

I shall end this post with pics of the Hasbro black Spidey (pic gotten from the recovered
