Hasbro have reintroduced two classic Spider-Man villains to the Marvel Legends brand including The Shocker and Green Goblin. Both characters have seen previous figures in Marvel Legends by both Toybiz and Hasbro.

Herman Schultz, after serving several prison terms for robbery, built a battle suit that sent out shock waves to quickly open safes as well as give himself a one-up on the authorities. The Shocker had the ability to shock his enemies with his hand held vibro-shock units, but because the vibrations were so fierce, he wore a heavily insulated suit. During his first outing as the self-styled “Shocker” he ran into and defeated Spider-Man.
Ruthless industrialist Norman Osborn was the co-owner of a leading New York firm, Osborn Industries, which specialized in chemical manufacturing via Osborn Chemicals, as well as other areas of research and development, including robotics. Osborn tested the a serum upon himself in his private lab, but the unstable concoction exploded in his face leaving him hospitalized for weeks. He emerged smarter and superhumanly strong, but at the cost of his sanity turning him into the Green Goblin.

The Shocker comes in his iconic yellow and brown suit with a nicely done head sculpt. The figure is an update from the previous Shocker figures by both Toybiz and Hasbro, and includes knee pads, as well as the energy blasts seen with spell casting characters and energy welding characters like Havoc. The paint apps are nicely done throughout the suit, and overall a nice update.
