This newer figure feels like a huge upgrade. (kid me's mind would've been blown by figures with this kinda articulation.) Just cool to see action figures come a long way.
The paint job looks great to me, he's easy to pose. The mask looks great, the cape doesn't look like it's just a big plastic mass, his gauntlets look great, the belt is kind of wimpy, almost feels like that ring sealing your plastic caps on a bottle, but that's minor.
It's true you never know what you'll get sometimes regarding figures today, loose limbs, messed up paint jobs, missing parts. But every time I get one of these I cannot believe the makers of the older figures ever thought: "huh, a rubber band held together by a metal hook will do for pose ability in the torso" What they've landed on now, is just great. The cape comes off easily just as well.
My only gripes, in some of these sets they'd release a slightly different variant. Like Carnage / Toxin (Brock) action figure, from the Spawn of Symbiotes line. Cannot think of any others. They had a great chance to release a variant of Prowler's costume, He had some kind of costume improvements in the "Clone Conspiracy" story, and in his mini-series tied to that story. The cape was different, more glider like. Or they could've made an Aaron Davis variant.
He also has no switchable hands. The claws are cool as hell, but still I wouldn't have minded fists.
I really hope they keep putting out action figures of this quality, and I love the build a figure gimmick they've been doing. Building my own Lizard figure is really tempting, if I wasn't a fan of one of the characters in this set. I'm also really hoping they keep tossing out surprises like this (to me at least + I don't these are coming in advance.)
Characters like Prowler, Beetle, Shocker, Darkhawk, Paladin, and Death's Head II are getting action figures. Really enjoying non media Marvel characters getting an action figure, it opens them up to gaining new fans instead of the kid / collector who is just collecting figures of a character they saw in a game or movie.
