About this Product

v1.4: Put parts on sprues to accommodate Shapeways' new pricing system.
Did a pass on all joints tightening them up more.
Made the bracelets a bit longer to match the comic look a bit better.

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.

@Strangefate Thank you, good to know I can paint it a few different ways. This was beyond helpful :) thank you once again, looking forward to this :-D

@rxdrone No special brush needed, just whatever you would use to paint figures or miniatures. Paint markers... I use several different ones myself here and there and as long as they're acrylic or otherwise made to paint on wood and such it should be fine. Regular, water resistant markers will work too (at least good quality ones) but you may need to add a finish after, to avoid wear over time. I use Krylon spray on finish personally but simple finger nail polish will do just as well too. I would be careful in general with brushed on finishes as they can soften the paint again and smudge everything as you apply them... Finger nail polish has worked pretty well tho so far, it will make things very shiny but offers good protection and much less danger of smudging than other normal acrylic brush on finishes so far. Hope that helps

@Strangefate Thank you. I hoped that would be good enough. And another question about painting- is there any of special brush I would need? Would a paint marker work on these?
November 7, 2014, 6:10 am
Hey, @rxdrone . I would go with superglue too myself, but I have to admit I'm no expert when it comes to gluing things to existing figures.
October 16, 2014, 2:05 am
Question: When I get this, whats the best glue to use? I'm thinking a few dabs with the Krazy Glue pen should be okay, but if I can use something better let me know.
October 15, 2014, 11:46 pm
I plan to get these soon :) Thank you, just hope it comes out as good as the pictures below.

The paint worked. Made it a little tighter but noticed with one coat, the paint rub off. I might have to add one more coat to make it permanent. I also have some irregularities from painting that I might sand down. This my first custom action figure. I enjoyed the process. The painting was relaxing. I glued the Gauntlets and back pack but it might not be centered correctly. I think it is minor. It still looks awesome. While admiring the action figure this morning, my wife was like don't you have to go to work.

@buraisho I think the shiny red helps make it look more like a regular toy :) For the ball joints, you could paint them I guess or try coating the balls and sockets in some liquid super glue maybe.
September 30, 2014, 1:38 pm
@christianmosqueda14 They don't gauntlets will come in the same solid color as the rest and will need to be painted.
September 30, 2014, 1:35 pm
And I was also wondering if the gauntlets come painted at all?

I think I am almost done. I might paint the ball joints. They are a little loose at some connections. How does he look?
September 28, 2014, 12:57 am
@christianmosqueda14 Hey Christian, I'm not sure what works best for regular action figures, I would imagine some superglue, but to know for sure I would maybe ask in a customizing forum like: http://thefwoosh.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=93 People there will be able to help you, some people there have already glud the same backpack to a Spidey figure.
September 24, 2014, 2:16 pm
@buraisho That should work pretty well :) ...The metallic will hopefully make the colors pop nicely!
September 24, 2014, 2:13 pm
Hello I was wondering what kind of glue do you recommend for gluing the backpack to the actual back of the figure?
September 24, 2014, 4:17 am
I started to paint it. Applied two coats of non-shiny apple red. I have a bottle of metallic red waiting. Used the box that it shipped in and used clothes pins to hold up assembled legs.
September 22, 2014, 1:03 am
@buraisho You could probably assemble the arms and position them into an L shape, then paint them avoiding the joint areas and then hang them in their L shape from something until they dry.
August 12, 2014, 12:56 pm
Any tips on how to paint the arms? Should I paint one side then paint the other side after it dries?
August 12, 2014, 12:41 am
My set came in today. I didn't even pick up the paint or glue. The bracers are sometimes red like when he goes after Venom. I was thinking of painting them red.
August 5, 2014, 1:52 am
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.
June 29, 2014, 8:15 am
@slagathor44 The difference isn't much, but this one (the 6 inch version) would probably be better and is what everyone else is getting.
May 24, 2014, 3:17 am
whats better for marvel legends scale? this or the 7 inch set? or does it even matter?
May 23, 2014, 11:48 am
@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 :/
April 13, 2014, 2:04 am
@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.
April 9, 2014, 12:06 pm
@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.
April 9, 2014, 12:04 pm
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
April 8, 2014, 4:08 am
@Strangefate awesome thx again for the help and for the great product
March 24, 2014, 5:13 am
@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.
March 24, 2014, 4:41 am
@Strangefate cool thx any brand of paint ? I have never. Done this before sorry for all of the ?s
March 24, 2014, 4:05 am
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.
March 24, 2014, 2:48 am
What kind of paint and glue do you recommend ?
March 24, 2014, 1:35 am
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 !
March 23, 2014, 11:51 pm
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.
