Remember how some time ago I said I bought a Spider-Man 2099 minifigure in a box from a place that seemed sketchy?
Well, it came in. And I got pictures!
Come, friends, and let us go through one of the lamer unboxings in existence.
Here's the front of the box. Sorry that it's on its side; pictures I upload here always tend to be like that.
The box came pretty banged up, and with the top part (which, in a store, it would be hung from) was taped down for some reason.
Here's the back, which shows the instructions for the Fidget Spinner of 2099, along with other sets you can buy. These include:
Homemade Costume Homecoming Spidey
Stealth Suit Spider-Man
Original Trilogy Spider-Man (with no black around the eyes. Classy)
Homecoming Spidey with Jacket
White Spider-Man 2099 (not sure where he's from. Maybe he's supposed to be the post-Secret Wars version?)
Anyway, enough about the box. Let's get to the contents!
In the box was a plastic baggie, along with some bubble-wrap. Spidey 2099 was somewhat preassembled. Oddly enough, his arms were off and completely disassembled.
I remember opening it up, and, based on looks alone, thinking, "Huh. This doesn't look all that bootleg."
And here's the minifig, fully assembled. Honestly, he's not that bootleg. He looks pretty good, actually. Do wish he did come with the webcape he has in the comics, but hey, I'll take what I can get.
And here's the fidget spinner. Sorry if it's a bit blurry; I'm not a good photographer. It assembled pretty well, and does indeed spin. So that's fun.
And now Spider-Man 2099 stands with my other 22 Spider-Man-related minifigures.
Also, I have a fidget spinner.
So if you do see something like this online, and don't mind parting with a dollar or so, I'd recommend it.
Final note: Today I got a message from the eBay seller who sold this to me, saying,
"The working day is about 35 days. Please rest assured that I sent it yesterday, and I can get it soon."
I actually got the figure yesterday, and told the guy as much. He replies:
That's slightly suspicious, but whatever.
