Yo Yo Yo; welcome to another episode of “Yo! MMC Reviews“! We’re back in da’ house with figures from the new Spidey movie joint, Amazing Spider-Man (hitting theatres this week, be sure to check it out). Breaking down what a perfect match this pack is, we’ll Kevin Bacon it for you:
- Spidey in his
vigilanterap outfit ->
- He would fit in on an old show called Yo! MTV Raps with Doctor Dre & Ed Lover ->
- Doctor Dre & Ed Lover were in the movie Who’s the Man? with Denis Leary (he was a police sergeant)->
- Denis Leary plays Captain Stacy in Amazing Spider-Man which is part of the Marvel movie universe ->
- Also part of the Marvel movie universe, in X-Men: First Class, Kevin Bacon played Sebastian Shaw (also minimated!)
Spidey, Leary, Bacon … Word!!
Not Spidey’s best “learning the ropes” first costume by a long shot but the figure itself is good for parts.
Captain George Stacy is the father of Peter Parker’s first love interest Gwen Stacy. In the comics he was always a supporter of Spider-Man (and Peter too). In the new movie is he played by actor Denis Leary and seems to be wary of the vigilante Spider-Man with intent to capture him. Will he change his mind in the movie; we’ll have to watch the movie to see!
This figure has one of the better facial matches to the actor in the movie; it’s amazing what a few detail lines here can do. He really does look like Denis Leary. The only negative I would say is the flesh color of his ears on the hairpiece doesn’t match his face.
The rest of his outfit is very reminiscent of the MAX law enforcement minimates. He has a black police torso cover that you can remove and see the police uniform underneath. Great details all around: police logo on his shoulders, tie with lapel clips, belt and even details showing the pockets and pleats on his pants.
He comes with an extra helmet to give the full gear look. For weapons he has a small gun with the same gun holster used for Crossbones and he also has a large automatic rifle. What’s really great is you can mix and match him with the rest of the MAX law enforcement minimates to give him a full squad to work with. Also a simple head swap and you can have a generic police officer too.
This is just a well done figure. He matches the movie actor wonderfully and is the type of figure that has such variety with his outfit that he can be used in so many ways.
For all you Rescue Me fans out there.
