v1.3: Thickened ball joint socket areas. This may or may not help with joint tightness (but it won't hurt either way).

v1.2: I had done some joint tightening a few weeks ago. Did some further tightening today.

Superior Spiderman Accessories:

1x Backpack
2x wrist gadgets (left/right)
4x mechanical spider arms

I would recommend ordering this set in the color that is closest to the color you want the mechanical spider arms to be, as the exposed ball joints in the arms will have paint rub.

The mechanical arms have ball joints and a great range of motion and they can be unplugged from the backpack.
The backpack itself needs to be glued to the figure.


IN: 1.5 w x 1.733 d x 2.776 h
CM: 3.81 w x 4.402 d x 7.05 h

I almost asked where are the gauntlets then I noticed them. Those arms look amazing and would make a great addition to the Marvel Legends Superior Spider-Man figure.

@slagathor44 The difference isn't much, but this one (the 6 inch version) would probably be better and is what everyone else is getting.

whats better for marvel legends scale? this or the 7 inch set? or does it even matter?

@logan622 Sorry to hear that Logan, hope some glue or finger nail polish can solve the problem, just make sure to let it dry long enough. The material itself bonds very well with glues etc. There's sadly not much I can do about the loose joints. The balls are already larger than the sockets so that they would be tight, but printing results tend to vary, some prints are on the too tight side while others come out a bit loose :/

@X23modee gorilla glue (the clear, instant stuff; not the stuff that foams/expands) will give you a super-strong (superior?) bond. I used testors model master acryl Insignia Red for painting my set.

@logan622 use a dab of superglue or clear nail polish on the balljoints to help give them a little more traction once everything's assembled. I experienced a similar looseness, but it hasn't been an issue since.

my order finally came, and the joints are extremely loose on mine... in fact, the pieces cannot even properly fit together without falling apart i carefully viewed all the pictures to make sure i was assembling it correctly, but still, no luck... extremely disappointed

@Strangefate awesome thx again for the help and for the great product

@X23modee - no worries. I use whatever brand has the closest colors to what I need... Martha Steward, Americana, DecoArt, FolkArt... whatever you can find at your local art supplies store. I'd mainly just look for a nice colors... use silver or titanium instead of regular gray for the bracelets and there's usually nice glossy or metallic reds that would make the arms pop. Some colors have weaker coverage so you may need to give it 2-3 paint apps until it's perfect.

@Strangefate cool thx any brand of paint ? I have never. Done this before sorry for all of the ?s

I think any superglue should do, but I'm no expert there. As for painting, I usually get great results with simple Acrylics. The material is not watertight and will absorb the paint. A few weeks after painting you won't be able to scratch it anymore.

What kind of paint and glue do you recommend ?

Awesome Dave, hadn't heard anything about this piece so I'm glad to see it hits the spot :) Thanks for attaching the images too !

Love this set! Had it printed in red, did a couple coats of paint over the arms, and it looks GREAT! Couldn't be happier.
