Thirteen years ago during a demonstration on the use of radioactive rays at a science exhibit, a spider is accidentally exposed to large amounts of radiation. In its dying moments, the arachnid bites Peter Parker. As a result, the young teenager gains amazing powers and becomes Spider-Man. However, this is not the end. Mere moments after biting Parker, the spider bites another young student named Cindy Moon. Soon after, Cindy’s abilities, including organic webbing (unlike Peter)
Ok that was a catch up for those unfamiliar with Sin. If she sounds familiar it's because there has been a lot of talk about her getting her own Marvel Movie. Well that's down the road but right now you can get her PVC Diorama from the great folks at Diamond Select Toys.
Let's examination the detail of her head. Stop starring at her boobs it's a statue not a real woman. Notice the eyes. To me the eyes of a statue are one of the first things to make it stand out. You can see not only the detail in her eyes but notice how the eyebrows and forehead are slanted to give it a full on look of determination. Notice how the cheekbone sculpting along with the scrunched lines in the mask add to the full effect of the facial expressions. Now you can look down at the body. Notice the shape you can see how she's fully bent arched heading towards action. The paint and design of not only the muscles but the spider logo itself is beautiful.
Looking at a side view you can see first how the hair is sculpted. It's not just a glop of painted plastic, it's actually crafted and painted to show off all the multiple strands giving it the look of real flowing hair. If you've read my other Diamond Select Toys reviews you see a pattern in the time and quality the put into these. Designing hair in a statue like this is just another touch to make these stand out in the collectors market.
Moving down you can see the positioning of Silk on her base as she's shooting her web the travel. The way the body is designed, proportioned, and twisted give it a full 3D effect. You can see all the detail from here. Look how her fingers are all individually done as the webs are shooting out. The other thing that stands out is the attention to the sculpting of the muscles. There not just painted as you can see there molded out to look as real as possible. Notice the arm. The muscles are actual sculpted as though the bicep and triceps are not only flexed but twisted to the side as are the legs in which you see the twisting of not only the quad but calf muscle as well. Even the tip of the feet are arched up.
From the back, yes you can see the Silks but. Its sculpted and shaped to stick out as she's obviously springing into action.
You can see the spider design painted covering the back of her costume. Notice the arms. One extending out the other, which we focused on abode twisting down. You can see the detailed webbing as it shoots from her wrists. Notice how even the bottoms of her boots are designed and painted. That shows you the quality of these Diamond Select Status. As I said no detail is spared. Even the sides and back of the hair are etched out to make it look real.
I think this is one of the best base deigns I've seen yet. It's definitely the most unique. It's a perfectly designed spider. Legs web design everything. They could have used just a standard black base but to give it an extra touch of cool they made it a spider. I love how the blue webbing actually forms a glided rest for Silk to travel on. The ice blue color and the fact that the web itself is molded and etched to look like a real web blend fantastic together. It reminds me of Ice-Man traveling on his ice slide. Side not Diamond Select needs to make Ice-Man on an ice slide base
Top to bottom this is yet another amazing release. It looks good displayed alone or with there other line of characters. It's a fantastic piece to display next to their Spider Man Homecoming, or Black Widow statue. Mine is standing next to Captain America. So if your a collector or just think it looks cool pick it up. It's a great one to show off. Parent's trust me when I say your kids would love it. My son has a room full of these and he wipes his down and takes pride in his collection. This is a must buy.
