Review: 6873 Spider-man’s Doc Ock Ambush

6873 - Overview

I wanted to love this set because of my life-long love of Spider-man. I am, admittedly, a fully realized and completey self aware Marvel Zombie and probably will be for the rest of my life. Marvel would have to screw something up big time for me to jump ship and they’ve screwed up so many times already I doubt they could really tick me off anymore than they already have over the years (I’m looking at you, Brand New Day!).

Having the first Spider-man set pop up themed around a cartoon I’d never seen, that I assumed was based on the Ultimate Spider-man comic that I can’t stand was troubling, but I still wanted to love it.

I posted Sara Hollin‘s pics from the back of the comic included in one of the Avengers sets after Brickmythic gave a heads up in the forum yesterday, but my laziness prevented me from posting it on the front page until now. Apparently the NA street date is April 8th for 6873 Spider-man’s Doc Oc Ambush and if that’s true I’ll be counting the days. I am not a fan of Marvel’s Ultimate line of comics, but some of the costumes are fantastic in general and the cartoon looks funny. Iron Fist may be about to make that leap from comic geek obscurity to more mainstream fandom.
