Bandai/Tamashii Nations SHFiguarts No Way Home Integrated Suit Spider-Man Action Figure Review


Hey Collectors! Welcome back to Dan's ToyBox. Today we're looking at a figure that's been out for a little while. We finally broke down and bought the Bandai/Tamashii Nations SHFiguarts No Way Home Integrated Suit Spider-Man. This figure has been out for several months, but after getting both the Iron Spider and Black/Gold suit, I decided to complete the trifecta and snag this guy.


With Peter having repaired the control port to Doctor Octopus' mechanical arms, he gains another ally in the battle to send the villains back to their respective universes. With the arms control again, the nanobots he'd taken from the Iron Spider armor earlier in the movie. The tech returns to Peter and integrates itself with his black and red "upgraded" suit as seen in Far From Home, resulting in the newly designed Integrated Suit.


If you're new to the column, we grade action figures on four criteria: Accessories, Appearance, Articulation, and Affordability. After considering each of these categories, we give the figure an overall grade of zero to ten ToyBoxes. As always, our goal is to provide you with as objective a review as possible to help you decide if you want to add this specific figure to your collection.



ACCESSORIES

Generally, most import figure companies pack a lot of extras with their figures. In this case, SHF actually REDUCED the accessories. The packaging is much smaller as well, to reflect this change. The Integrated Suit Spider-Man comes with two thwipping webs, four pairs of hands: 1 pr of fists, 1 pr of web holding hands, 1 pr thwipping hands, and 1 pr of wall crawling hands. Additionally, there is a plug for a port on his back to mount on a flight stand (not included) and the eye removal tool, for swapping out eye lense (extras not included). While this minimal amount of accessories helped reduce the overall price for the figure, it is disappointing for fans of SHF who are used to getting more. I honestly don't recall the reason for this, but all things considered it's still better than what most domestic figures have packed with them, but it's a bit of a dropoff from what we are used to with SHF. I'll give them a 7 out of 10 for accessories.



APPEARANCE

When I first saw the Marvel Legends version of this figure as well as the movie, I thought the colors were grey, gold, and red. This figure though looks to be more blue, which I'm assuming is a result of the blue nanotech from the Iron Spider suit. Either way, looks-wise, this is far superior to the Hasbro version. The paint detail is really well done and I didn't find any evidence of paint slop anywhere. The reds are nice and vibrant, the golds are really cleanly applied and the smaller details on the web shooter gauntlets are very well done. As always with SHF, I'm very impressed with the amount of sculpting that goes into these figures. This Spider-Man is no exception either. The design really tightly matches the look of the costume from the movie and is very screen accurate. The only real complaint, which seems to be fairly common with SHF is the very small design of the shoulders and the traditional rotating butt flaps. As I've mentioned before though, once you get past the look of the design, you really don't notice it much any longer. And, honestly, the trade off in fluid look versus functional articulation is worth it. I actually really like the look of this figure and easily feel it's worth a score of 9 out of 10.



ARTICULATION

As you all know, I'm a very big fan of SHF's articulation and engineering. Starting at the top, the head sits on a nice peg and can look up reasonably well and down very far. It turns side to side easily and in conjunction with the articulated neck joint gets nice tilt and even more range of up/down motion. The shoulders sit on a nice butterfly and can raise to above a T position, rotate a full 360 degrees and have increased forward and backward swing range. The biceps have a rotation and the double jointed elbows bend in fully to touch his head. Each hand sits on a wrist peg and can hinge and pivot. Plus, the hands are very secure when pegged on, which means you don't have to worry about them falling off and getting lost easily. The upper diaphragm crunches forward and backward very nicely, pivots and can tilt side to side very nicely. Coupled with the lower joint, Spidey can get into some really deep crunch and crouching positions. The legs do amazing splits and with the rotational butt flaps, can kick upward very high and split out to the sides exceptionally well. The hidden upper thigh cut allows for some rotation and the double jointed knees bend in well enough. The ankles feature a very nice hinge and rotation and the toe articulation works good enough. Overall, this Spidey functions just like any other SHF offering and gets a solid 8 out of 10. My only real concerns were some tightness in the torso joints and a bit of looseness to the left arm.


AFFORDABILITY

Surprisingly, for being an import, this was released at a much lower cost than most. Obviously, the smaller packaging and fewer accessories contributed to the reduction in pricing, which is acceptable. I was able to get this figure for $64.99 on BBTS, which unfortunately they are now sold out. Being an import with still a relatively decent amount of accessories, this price is pretty reasonable to me and earns a score of 8 out of 10.


Overall, I'm much happier with this figure than I expected to be. Even with the reduced accessories, it's nice to get an import for under $75 and this figure is good enough to earn a stout:


8.5 ToyBoxes out of 10
