Dollar General/Family Dollar -MU Spider-Man

Thanks for stopping by everyone and welcome to 5 Points And Proud! This blog will only cover action figures with 5 points of articulation or less so no super pose able Marvel Universe figures, no G.I. Joe's (unless they fall under the 5 points category) and definitely no modern day Transformers. 
I'll start this off with one of my favorite action figures in my collection, and It only has 5 points of articulation! I love this Spider-Man figure for many reasons. What better way to list them then with  bullet "points"!
  • It's Spider-Man
  • The paint apps really pop
  • $Very cheap$
  •  Sturdy plastic
  • Reminds me of the 80's Secret Wars line of figures

    1. He is John. I just hope they release more Marvel figures like this but in their classic unis.

  2. Great little figure and one that you can feel safe giving to a child. I'm fond of 5 POA so long as they are in a static pose and not a fixed one that can make it difficult for them to stand.

  3. oh yeah- saw him at Big Lots, say... are these not ever so slightly larger than a Marvel Univ?

  4. They stand a bit shorter than SW figs but not that much. They actually blend in nicely with them. These lesser articulated Marvel figs are also sized according to character. For instance the Avengers line of lesser articulated figures are all different sizes.

    1. Hey Dex thanks for stopping by! I know they did a Wolverine and Hulk figure. Didn't know they did a Cap!

    2. I *think* the 3rd was Cap, but could be wrong. I know Spidey and Hulk for sure. I heard about them on the Marvelicious Toys podcast a few months ago.
