Toying Around Reviews - Disney's Marvel Toy Box: Spider-Man
Disney's Marvel Toy Box:
Today we will be taking a look Spider-Man from Disney's all-new figure line exclusive line, The Toy Box. The Toy Box is a line of figures based on the looks from the now-defunct Infinity video game.
There are three different subcategories, Toy Story, Star Wars and Marvel. We will be looking at Thor from the Marvel Toy Box.
Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
The new Marvel Toy Box figures come with a standard size blister card. At the top, you have the Disney Store exclusive logo with the Marvel Toy Box Logo running down the left side of the box. Thor is clearly displayed inside the blister card. Behind him, you have a big blue #3 as he is the 3rd figure in the Marvel Toy Box. Down the bottom, you have Spider-Man's name.
Turning the box to the side you have a clear side look at Spider-Man and his retractable webbing. This is perfect for collectors who wish to keep the figure mint inside the box.
On the back of the box, we have a brief little bio about the Toy Box and the big #3 again to let you know he is the 3rd figure in this line. Right below we have a picture of Iron Man and SpiderMan both based on the looks from Spider-Man Homecoming.
Flipping the box around one more time we have some artwork of Spider-Man. This is the artwork of Spider-Man that appeared in the Disney Infinity Game.
Outside of the Box:
Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Taking Spider-Man out of the box, you get a good look at how this Spider-Man is based on his look from the Homecoming moving.
Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
The only thing Spider-Man comes with is his retractable webbing.
How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!
Hinged Mushroom Pegged Head - Allows you to swivel the head 360-degrees. The joint also allows you to move the head back and forth.
Ball Jointed Shoulders - Gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.
Singles Jointed Swivel Elbows - this allows for a 90-degree bend at the elbow. The swivel in the elbow allows for a complete 360-degree rotation of the lower arm.
Hinged Swivel Wrists - allows you to turn her wrists in a full 360-degree circle, as well bend them up and down.
Waist Swivel - this lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.
Hinged Legs - with this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.
Single Jointed Knees - This joint, although limited, allows you to bend the knees. The bend is less than 90 degrees.
Hinged Ankles - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back.

What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
Paint Job 3/5
The paint on Spider-Man is not that bad, however, I did have to go through at least 7-8 different figures at the Disney store to find one that had good paint.
Figure Sculpt 4/5
The look of the figure is just about perfect. He looks like he would have been the design/look if Disney had made a 4.0 to the game.
Posing / Durability 2/5
For a Spider-Man figure, you can get him into some good poses. The lack of a web shooting hand does hurt the figure a little. I mean it is Spider-Man, he shoots webs, it's kinda his thing. so he should have at least one, not two open fist hands.
Overall Score 3/5
It's not a great figure but it isn't also a bad figure. The Toy Box figures are made for younger kids so if you are buying them for kids you should have no issues.
Retail Cost: $12.95
The only place to pick up the Disney Toy Box Figures is at the Disney Store or online at Disney's Website.
