I recently picked up the new 6″ Amazing Spider-Man movie figures, and while I think the figure has really great articulation, the paint job was severely lacking. The web lines on the suit weren’t painted, and in fact almost no detail was really painted on the suit. The entire paint scheme was too “toyish” and didn’t really match the movie, so I aimed to fix it. I repainted the entire figure, head to toe, giving him dark color washes, with dry brushed highlights to really bring out the sculpt. I outlined all the webbing on his suit, and lightly dry brushed some mithril silver on him, and then clear red and blue (where needed) to give him that slightly metallic look that he had in the movie. I also added powerful magnets in his feet so he can cling to any metal surface. He’s now got a gritty, more realistic look to him that’s all the more accurate to the movie portrayal. All of his web lines on his suit are filled in, so now he looks like he just stepped out of the movie, and now he’s actually a “wall crawler”!
