    I'm going to get both because never before in history have we had import and higher end figure companies making American comic characters (other than Batman). Going to enjoy and support this shit as long as I can.

    Mafex, Revoltech and Mezco. I have a feeling Bandai is going to get on this train too.

    Yep! Loving the high end comic style figures. Works out great with all the lines mixed together to get the best look for whatever display I’m going for.

    These Mafex releases go on preorder wayyyy before release date, lol. I have an Evil Gwenpool and Venom preordered from some time so long ago I don’t even remember. Yeah, pay later all good though. Going to have to pay for both Wolverine and Cyclops at the same time when Wolvie comes but that’s no big deal.

    I figured that might be it but wasn't sure the webline or whatever that's attached to would be able to support him.

    So I was looking online for the Mafex Spider-Man, you know, just because I am liking the pictures I see of it people have been posting, and holy crap, I had no idea that dude was like $150+. :jawdropper:  I think I'll pass after all.

    I bought him for $60 ($80 shipped) from HLJ. Even BBTS had him available sub-$100 until they sold out last week. Whoever is charging $150 is gouge-tastic.

    Scalpers gonna scalp. He was 60ish through HLJ and BBTS had him for 80ish until they sold out. For some reason he jumped up sky high after that. Honestly it's a shame as he is probably the best 6inch Spidey I own. Blows every other Spidey I own out of the water (Marvel Legends, Amazing Yamaguchi, and Mezco One:12). It really is that good a figure. Not at the scalper prices though.

    He is pretty great - I imagine he’ll get a reissue or repainted release though. I’m hoping for one with bright blue and not wash/shading.

    I'd like a MAFEX symbiote Spidey to go with this one personally. I'm kind of a sucker for that suit.

    MAFEX has gotten really salty over the last two years. After I had the Wonder Woman with the staining skirt, I've been really hesitant to buy another. Did they fix it on either version that followed BvS?

    Received Mafex John Wick today from AmiAmi. Should have got him last week, but he was delivered to the wrong post office, and they took their sweet-ass time sending him back to my post office.

    Regular head looks okay, but battle-damaged head looks spot-on. Glad I ordered him.

    I would agree with all of that except the Revo Spidey, and that only because the Revo feels more like more "apples and oranges" simply because it's not trying to be the kind of figure the rest are.
