So I finished my Medicom Spider-Man Review. As I said, this review of the Medicom Spider-Man is different from 99.99% of the other reviews of this guy because I actually address the main issue with the older Medicom figures that guys like Michael Crawford are afraid to discuss and that is…
…they break faster than $2 Optimus Prime KOs from Guatemala.
That’s not to say they’re horrible and worthless. On the contrary, they’re actually quite cool. “$60 cool” but not “$150 cool.”
“How dare you make fun of my Manhattan Mullet?”
Apparently the “breaking issues” with the older Medicom figures are pretty common and you can find entire forums devoted to discussing how much Medicom figures actually suck if you Google search long enough (and I include links to these forums in the review) but do guys like Crawford talk about that issue? Nope. He just recommends you spend the big bucks on the overrated crap.
Anyway, you can find the review here. Agree or disagree with my final assessment? Leave a comment here and let me know what you think.
So I’m sure the one or two of you who check this site regularly are probably wondering if I died or did indeed decide to quit reviewing the “plastic crack.”
As you can clearly see neither one of those assumptions is accurate at this time.
What happened was my parents borrowed the digital camera for a couple of months so I have been without the critical tool I need to review toys. I have the camera back now though and I will hopefully be able to borrow it for the next couple of months so expect more reviews in ’08, my first being the Medicom Spider-Man figure that came out a couple of years ago. Now, I know what you’re saying…”I’ve already read a ton of reviews about Medicom Spider-Man!”
That may be true but this review promises to discuss a rather controversial issue with the figure that other reviewers are often hesitant to tackle. Needless to say it’s an issue that really needs to be discussed more often as it really could make or break the decision for potential buyers to buy our Mr. Parker here.
Also expect a Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End 12” Jack Sparrow review as well as a review of Wal-Mart Masterpiece Starscream.
