Marvel Legends SPIDER-GIRL Revealed!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Infinite Series - Skyline Sirens - Hasbro 2014
 
This reveal is my most anticipated retail figure of 2014 so far!  Anya Corazon is the current Spider-Girl in the Marvel Universe (she's the former AraƱa from Amazing Fantasy).  I love this character.  Her solo title from 2010 only lasted 8 short issues but I loved it.  The art was fantastic, the character development was interesting, and the overall feel was fun.  I considered it to be Marvel's version of the Stephanie Brown Batgirl series.  I was very excited recently when Spider-Girl reappeared in the pages of Avengers Assemble (alongside Spider-Woman and Black Widow.. a Spider-Lady trio!), and now I'm even more stoked that she's getting an action figure - and an amazing-looking one at that.  Marvel Legends seems to have rebranded all their lines "Infinite Series" this year (with a focus on Movie themes), and Anya is a variant in the Skyline Sirens slot (partnered with Black Cat) in the Spider-Man themed Green Goblin Build-a-Figure series.  These variant slots are notorious for never appearing (Moonstar and Lyra anyone?), but these in-package shots are giving me a lot of confidence.  I can't wait to get my hands on her!




 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
If you want to catch-up on Anya's adventures, the Spider-Girl: Family Values trade collects her entire 8-issue solo series.
 
 


 

 






 
 
 
Cheers!

    1. I can't wait for her! I'm typing up a review of the Marvel Select Spider-Woman right now. I'm really in a Spider-mood now :)

  2. She's gorgeous, I absolutely love this body type! I shudder at the memory of "thorax torso" female figures from earlier in Toy Biz's Marvel Legends run.

    1. I remember being so excited for early Marvel Legends figures. I felt like complaining about the gawky bodies would be doing a disservice to the hobby. For the first time I'm actually giddy with excitement over what figures we might see in the future!
