The figure came in, it’s a pretty cool one. I unboxed it and was actually planning to make a meme with it. However I couldn’t get either of my ideas right.
One was a recreation of that panel of her on the glider saying “don’t believe anything you read on the net." I have a Demogoblin Glider I was gonna use but I couldn’t get the perspective or pose right. Another was just a photo of her face looking stern, but the camera didn’t pick up the details right to make her look grumpy like she kinda does on the figure in person.The caption would’ve been:
Them: you can’t make a meme using a figure
Me: [inserts image of Mayday Figure]
Here’s what she looks like just neutral outta the box:
She can move her head and arms, bend her elbows and swivel her wrists. She has a stomach crunch too.Then she can move her legs, knees and feet up and down.She can even swivel her ankles and do the splits which surprised me given the fact the figure is cloth covered.
Here’s me trying to recreate her iconic Spider-Girl #1 pose:
As you can see the only flaw I have with the figure is the mask; it looks really malformed. I suppose that’s the thing with cloth masks. Funny enough the fig was delivered using a gin tasting kit package. Weird, guess that was the only box he had. But she has the slit on the back of the former so she can reveal her face. She has a split on the mask and on the back, I have no idea why for the latter and I don’t want to know, frankly! lol
I had a Happy Meal/Burger King toy of Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man which had a removable cloth mask and what I think is clever about the back Velcro thing is they made it the black bit of the spider logo, a good way of making it unobtrusive with the design.
It’s actually a pretty neat representation of early issues Mayday, some great detail especially with her even wearing earrings. Makes me wonder how that’d work in real life though; it’d hurt like hell if she got a ring snagged under the mask wouldn’t it? Ah but I’m overthinking it! I will say I think she resembles moreso issues 2 or 3 Mayday a lot more than the first appearance Mayday. Again another nitpick as they’re not THAT different and I’m probably just remembering specific panels like during the basketball scene and taking my impressions from that memory.
Here’s my attempt at a backwards wall crawl sort of pose - with what I believe is a ToyBiz Iron Man to see what the scaling’s like:
Here’s the panel I was thinking of that looks just like the figure:
Here’s one final pic before I go for now. It’s on that Goblin Glider I had hanging around:
She fits surprisingly well on it! Hope you enjoyed the look at it, if you have any questions or anything feel free to ask.
