The Spiderman PS4 game is awesome. I’ve played it a bit, my son has finished it twice. Once you get to level 11 you can unlock the negative suite. Its very cool to say the least. Its essentially a photo negative of Spiderman’s normal suite. I don’t game as much as I used to but I still always have time for superhero video games. The Spiderman game is definitely one to check out if you have yet to play. I dig the negative costume, and now the good folks at Diamond Select Toys have made a statue of it to, if your like me, or my son more so, put it right on top of your PlayStation.
Well, here it is. Negative Spiderman in the classic design but negative .Much like the original costume it’s a complete one piece outfit. It wraps around the head and body. Instead of red, blue, and white, this is black and grey. Let’s start by looking at the head You can see the big oversized white eye lids surrounded in a thin dark black outline which leads into the big thick grey outline. The eyes are a bright white, with just a slight hint of black for shading to give it a touch of depth. I love how it really is the same classic look we all love, just in a different / negative color
Moving down we get a great look at how the black area almost sticks out like shoulder pads. The black shoulder piece going to the crotch and down the legs is covered in the trademark webbing. Look how of the little webbing is carved into the piece and painted grey to give it a nice element of perception. The grey is solid and vibrant and if you look you can see the faint hints of light black painted in it for shading purposes. And let’s not forget to mention the black spider in the center that’s outlined in the grey webbing. It really stick out on the piece. Throw in the fact that the shoulders are covered in grey pads makes the entire chest area look almost three dimensional. I can’t stress enough how well the spider looks. Blending in, but still standing out. You can see the piece is sculpted to show off the muscles underneath the outfit. The seams are done in grey as well, but designed to still stick out
The back shows off all the grey and black in the outfit as well as the shading and muscle structure. You can see very faint black, and very minimal usage is done just enough to accentuate certain parts of the statue. The rest is the bold grey and black like the rest The spider on the back is amazing. Bold, thick black and its hangs all the way down the back. All black but very thinly outlined in first black then silver to give it contrast and make it pop. It’s the classic look only negative and you can see all of the sculpted muscles running throughout the back and legs of Spiderman. Another really cool thing is all of the deep silver lines molded into the piece to stick out but yet retain the same color. It’s like the seams are bulging out of the outfit. You can see the back belt with the grey webbing etched in as well as the back and grey webbing on the legs. The placement and positioning used really bring this to life, and give you the full feeling of Spiderman getting ready to launch himself off a rooftop through the city to fight crime. This is a very comic accurate, or should I say video game accurate piece to say the least.
The base is a brick like substance, obviously to mimic a rooftop. It’s a clay like red with the classic spiderman webbing design carved into it. Its made to look speckled and dirty. Yet still bright enough to bring the rest of the piece to life. Bu the sell point is the big silver spider right in the center of it. Sticking out, and covering most of the top the spider matches the one on the chest perfectly. Notice how it is also done with many specks of black to make it dirty. It adds the perfect touch to this piece.
Top to bottom an amazing statue from Diamond Select that really brings the costume from the game to life. If you’re a Spiderman fan, or a gamer this is definitely one to add to your collection. Pick one up right away.
