Hasbro Marvel Legends Spider-Man: No Way Home Integrated Suit Spider-Man Action Figure Review


Thanks for visiting Dan's ToyBox for part three and the wrap up to the Spider-Man No Way Home Marvel Legends Reviews this week. I feel as though this is somewhat anti-climactic because I've essentially reviewed this particular figure already for a different website. This is basically a repaint of the first Integrated Suit figure, released back in October 2021, just before the film debuted. As I recall, I gave that figure 2.75 out of 5 toyboxes on my previous rating scale. Let's see if this version has improved at all.


The third film in Tom Holland's Spider-Man trilogy is a fast paced, fun effort. Weaving multiple universes together and bringing back fan favorites Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their cinematic versions of the webhead. This version of Holland's suit is the result of the remnants of his Iron-Spider nanotech merging with the black and red upgraded suit to form this Integrated costume for Spider-Man's final battle with the multiverse foes. When this figure was released originally, we speculated that the look was based on production stills and may not have been what the final suit on film would look like. The color scheme was red/gold/gray. This version from the new three-pack has the red and gold scheme, with the traditional blue portions of the costume back in play, more in line with his on-screen appearance.


As regular readers well know, Dan's ToyBox reviews four categories when considering action figures. Accessories, Appearance, Articulation, and Affordability. Each category will receive a score on the zero to 10 scale, after which the figure will receive an overall grade, also based on zero to 10 ToyBoxes. So, without further ado, let's discuss the Integrated Suit Spider-Man from Marvel Legends No Way Home Three-Pack.



ACCESSORIES

Where the initial release only came with fists and thwipping hands, this as with the others in the three-pack also has both of those as well as wall crawling hands and an (overused) web line. Already, though, there's an improvement... extra accessories. I've long said that any and all Spider-Man figures must have those three types of hands so this should be expected. He also needs webbing, but it really is time to improve upon the current webbing molds. That said, when we get what we expect, we aren't surprised and thus 6 out of 10 shouldn't be a shock for accessory rating.



APPEARANCE

The look of this is significantly better than the original release from 2021. When the webbing on his costume is painted, it tends to mute the color of the red around it, giving this a more realistic appearance. The biggest problem with the original Integrated Suit release, as well as the Far From Home Upgrade Suit offerings was the bright, shiny red suit, with sculpted, unpainted webbing. If you want something to look like a cheap toy, then put the minimal effort into it. This version though looks much better because there is more effort put into the paint details. I will admit that I'm a bit disappointed that they eyes looks to be slightly off as you can see the red lip at the top of the lenses. Other than that, the paint applications are fairly clean. There is a considerable amount of detail on this figure, which I like. I also noticed that on the first figure, the fingers were gray and the hand itself was mostly red, while on this version, the fingers are red and the rest of the hand is blue. Also, the sculpted details on the back of his hand were highlighted on the previous figure, while on this one they are just a solid blue. In terms of accuracy, this is a much better figure in my eyes. I guess that my biggest disappointment is the fact that it's just a repaint and while I understand using a pre-existing figure body/design, I feel like Hasbro really copped out on this figure. I'm going to give it a generous 7 out of 10 for appearance but ONLY because it is a major improvement over the first offering.



ARTICULATION

I honestly feel like I could pull a Hasbro here and just copy my original review of the figure's articulation. I won't though, because I'm not as lazy as they are. His head sits on a ball peg, which gives Spidey a good up and down looking range, side to side turning, and there is decent head tilt. The shoulders are on butterfly joints, but the range of motion is disappointing because of the internal design of the plug for the arm peg. The shoulders themselves rotate a full 360 degrees and can raise his arms out, at a higher angle than your typical T pose. Bicep swivel is good enough and the double jointed, pin-less elbows bend in very deep. All three pairs of hands can hinge and swivel even with the web shooter sculpt causing some limitation. We have seen Hasbro introduce the new upper diaphragm joints, unfortunately because they merely chose to repaint an old figure, we get the old buck with the ab hinge. It does bend back very nice and doesn't give him that odd pregnant look and, surprisingly, bends forward rather deeply. Because of the hinge, there is no lower ab joint, but rather just the old, standard waist swivel, which moves without difficulty. I still really don't like the look of this hinge and feel that the newer ball joint figures are so much better at maintaining the natural appearance. As with the previous version, this figure can actually do great leg splits and will kick forward about 90 degrees. The upper thigh cut works fine and the double-jointed knees bend in deep enough to bring his heel to touch his lower back. There is still no boot cut, but the ankle pivot and hinge are generous and work just fine. I think the most irksome aspect of this is that it's a re-used figure. While there are good things to say about the articulation, there have been some improvements in Hasbro's engineering that seeing this figure on the updated molds we got with the other two in the package would have been more fitting. I'll give him a 7 out of 10 because I can't really gripe about the articulation, but I think it could have been even better.


AFFORDABILITY

Much like Hasbro, I'm going to be lazy here and keep the same price rant that I've given the other figures in this series... however there is a slight adjustment to the rating and you'll see why below. The only standard for all three figures in this review is this section. I'll admit, I'm copying from the first review because it applies. I purchased this three-pack on Hasbro Pulse for $89.99, plus tax and shipping. At base price, that puts each individual figure at just under $30.00 each. As a figure with three pairs of hands and one web line accessory, that individual price is 20% higher than what single packed Marvel Legends retail at ($24.99). This is very disappointing because if these were single packed, I think we'd all expect them to retail for the base price, but the question is would they end up selling retail at $29.99 each? If so, that is really a blatant rip-off of the consumer. Hasbro really needs to set the base price and then entice us into buying these multi-packs with a small discount. At base price, these three should be $74.97 if bought individually, with the accessories included. Hasbro is throwing an additional $15 cost on this... for what? It's exploitation of their customers. The biggest insult in this whole travesty of pricing was that the original Integrated Suit Spider-Man retailed for $22.99 when I bought it, which is $2 less than the standard retail price for Legends at this point. Yes, this figure comes with an extra set of hands and a web line... but that doesn't make up for the fact that Hasbro essentially repainted a figure and threw it into a pack with two new figures. THAT is insulting to collectors and as a result brings the FINAL OVERALL rating for affordability to a mere 1 out of 10.


On it's own, the Integrated Suit Spider-Man receives an overall grade of: 5.5 out of 10 ToyBoxes.


As a set, my final overall rating of the Spider-Man No Way Home Marvel Legends Three-Pack earns:


6.5 out of 10 ToyBoxes.

While there is a lot to enjoy, where the Maguire and Garfield versions are concerned, the Holland version and the overall price are really a letdown. The figures themselves are good, but they aren't worth the price for the three pack. Hasbro seriously needs to rethink this multi-pack pricing structure and stop taking advantage of their consumers. As always, if you've made it this far, thank you so much for your support! Until next time... GEEK OUT!!!
