Figure Review: Black-Suit Spiderman Bust from Sideshow (Spiderman 3)

From the movie Spiderman 3, this Black-Suit Spiderman Bust from Sideshow is actually quite a stunning piece of collectible for Spiderman fans.

Overall Rating

If I remember correctly, this was supposedly released by Sideshow as a SDCC Exclusive in 2007 and was limited to a production run of 1500 pieces.

Made from polystone, this piece looks best when displayed on its own. But then again, this is just a personal opinion and preference.

The sculpted piece depicts Spiderman with his arms opened wide, apparently “struggling” with his inner-self as the “darkness” of the alien symbiote attempted to take hold of our dear superhero.

Personally, I prefer Spiderman in this black-suit version. Somehow, Spidey seems a lot “cooler” in this outfit. Why must all the “bad” guys have a better dress sense? Don’t agree with me? Think Stormtrooper Armor Suit versus Rebel Trooper Outfit!

Overall, this is a very well-sculpted piece. I was actually surprised when it became available at Sideshow’s online site on 2nd Chance and it was even Gift-Card Eligible! That was how this marvelous piece came to be part of my collection and I have never regretted purchasing it. It has since become one of the all time favorite piece of my collection.

With all the wonderful plus points that were built into this Spiderman Bust, I think it deserves at least a 90% rating! (4.5/5).

I couldn't see anything surprise in the movie. Everything seems to be a messy mixture of cheap action and drama films. Firstly, every scene was badly made, they meant nothing together. It was impossible for me to find even a small reasonable connection between them. In other words, this movie meant about nothing but a bunch of ... What a poor script! Second, every character seems to be normalized horribly. No one of them even have a individual personality and they act like they're all out of mind. Yeah, this is really supportive and suitable for a amazing bad script.
