After completing my last two figures (Deadpool / Batman) I decided that my current human figure design was good, but still somewhat limiting, today’s figures are more poseable than ever, and I felt that my Lego Figures should follow the same evolution. This was only part of the impetus for the redesign, the other reason of course being the subject matter. Spider-Man needed to be extremely poseable even more so than a typical human being, so a complete overhaul was needed. He also needed to be slimmer to match Spider-Man’s lithe, athletic physique, while including additional joints. Quite a challenge. NEW AND IMPROVED -He has a ball joint at the base of the neck as well as pivot joint at the base of the skull, allowing him to look all the way down and over his shoulders when contorted.
-A mid-torso joint that allows him to bend his spine forward and back, it also rotates from left to right, like the waist joint. -His elbows and knees are double-jointed, which allows a free range of movement and the ability to fully crouch his legs. -The hips can now allow the legs up and over the waist line allowing for those very spider-like poses. -His ankles have a second pivot joint for extra steep ankle poses, as well of full range of motion in the main joint. -His feet have an articulated toe piece to make those perching poses more natural. -I got a lot of feedback about some of my more lackluster photos of Batman, so I purchased better photo equipment, seems to have made a difference, Thanks for the tips!
