Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Spider-Man Series with a Space Venom Build-A-Figure being offered. This series also includes Spider-Man Peter Parker, Miles Morales, Hobgoblin, Electro, Silk, and Spider-Girl Ashley Barton.

The Hobgoblin is the alias of several supervillains appearing in Marvel comic books. The first Hobgoblin, Roderick Kingsley, first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #238, and was created byRoger Stern and John Romita, Jr. During the late 1980s and most of the 1990s, the Hobgoblin identity was carried exclusively by Jason Macendale.

Electro is the name of two fictional supervillains appearing in Marvel comic books. Maxwell Dillon, the first Electro, is an enemy of Spider-Man who gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line. Electro has since become one of Spider-Man’s most enduring foes becoming part of the collective rogue team known as The Sinister Six.

Availability: August 2016

The Hobgoblin has been in a desperate need of a Marvel Legends update for many years now and Hasbro has delivered an excellent representation of the character from his comic book appearances. Hobgoblin features two head sculpts (Hobgoblin and Demogoblin). His arms and legs are sculpted with texture (painted in blue). He is  sculpted in his orange and blue costume with a torn cape, dark blue pack with a strap around his chest, a black belt with a silver belt buckle. Included with Hobgoblin is a glider, and a pumpkin bomb. The pumpkin bomb may fall out of his hand from time to time as there is no peg hole to hold it in more securely.

One tidbit about the figure is that his shoulder articulation doesn’t give you full range of motion. The shoulder also clicks several times while being moved.

Electro is sculpted in his classic costume and includes two head sculpts that are based on his classic and modern look. He is painted in his classic freed, black, and gold costume and features electricity hands. His torso includes Electro bolts on his chest, back, and down both arms. The head sculpts are nicely detailed and are great representations of the appearances in the classic and modern comics. The articulation is very nicely done and you get a full range of motion including double-jointed elbows and knees. The Electric hands are nice, but need to be longer and it would had been nice if he came with regular hands as well.

Overall:

Hobgoblin and Electro both includes great looking sculpts and nice updates to the Marvel Legends line. It has been quite some time since they have been available in the comic-accurate uniforms, so these are long overdue for an update.

Highly Recommended.
