What has yesterday done to tomorrow?

History: Spider-Man 2099 was first introduced into the Marvel Universe in the nineties along with other 2099 characters. This was Marvel’s attempt to show what their characters would be like in the future. Spider-Man 2099 first made his appearance in the 30th anniversary of The Amazing Spider-Man. Peter David and Rick Leonardi introduced Spider-Man 2099  series in 1992. He has seen stints in video games and appeared in Spider-Man into The Spiderverse in 2018 and was voiced by Oscar Isaac.

What’s in the box?:  Three head portraits including an unmasked version. Twelve interchangeable hands. wrist communicator, wrist communicator with Lyla projection FX, four web lines, web base, web mask, web cape, and unstable molecule suit with spider insignia. Also included is a posing stand and Spider-Man 2099 base.

The verdict: I wanted to give this figure high praise as I’m always a fan of Mezco’s Stuff. I found it difficult to remain biased as I was very disappointed with how this was shipped to me from Mezco. I received a semi crushed outer box shipper with no bubble wrap only a few air pocket bubbles. the actual figure box was damaged. I reached out to Mezco to let them know how I received it and got no response in return not any offer of explanation or even a replacement. As most who have read my articles know I’m a Mezcoholic and I’ve had over 80 figures pass through my hands over several years. I can only think of two issues I’ve had with any of the figures. It would be one thing if I got this figure for free I wouldn’t be able to complain sure I could moan and groan but what would be the point it would have been a free figure. I paid for this figure out of my own pocket and as everyone knows One:12’s aren’t cheap. The figure itself was well made and I was able to pop out some awesome poses with it and had a good time seeing how comic accurate I could make him. Not too shabby. Everything looked nice and well detailed except the box. The Term For Collectors By Collectors is pretty standard so hey let’s make sure we do better at shipping They could Blame the damage on FedEx but it was the warehouse that packed it. I’m usually a fanboy with these figures but i like to be honest as well. Great figure Crappy packing. Grab it if you can.
