The sculpt on Mysterio is well done, even though I didn't like the rather over-sized "bowl head". The head appears larger than how he appears in the comics, and I'm guessing it's because of the need to incorporate the action feature within the head. The action feature also means that a button has to stick out from his back. It doesn't exactly concern me, but stricter fans will no doubt lament the "destruction" of the sculpt. Otherwise, the gloves, torso and rubber cape are all relatively well done, and should please most fans of the series.
The paint application on Mysterio is acceptable, although it does have some minor paint slips. This is not unusual for Toy Biz merchandise. The main problem is a bad case of over-spillage on the gold rim around his head, and the one near his gloves. While picking for my own, I noticed that all the figures are in one way or another affected. The effort is quite annoying to say the least, and is certainly not the strongest point of this toy.
I love figures with loads of articulation, and we all know that Toy Biz are the kings in pumping out a high number of articulation points for their figures. Yet, at times, they're also capable of including too many useless and ugly (Black Cat's neck, anyone?) points. Thankfully, Mysterio is just standard Toy Biz. It has the usual shoulder ball joints, double jointed elbows, wrist swivels, palm swivels, waist twist, ball jointed hips, double jointed knee, ankle swivel (with side twist) and feet bends. What Mysterio doesn't have us a proper neck movement, which is, again, due to the action feature. More on that later.
It's also interesting to note about the joint quality while discussing the articulation of the toy. While they're quite tough on the whole, the right double elbow joint on my figure is pretty loose. This points again to the QC, or rather, the lack of it at Toy Biz. Not a problem, if you seldom pose your figures, but a little frustrating if you actually do.
Mysterio has some sort of a base with wheels, which supposedly simulate the "smoke effect" when he does one of his illusions. It wasn't well done though, and ended up looking pretty lame as well. The base is to shoot two missiles that look like... ah crap, I don't know what they look like. Personally I think the idea is to provide some trigger action fun. Most collectors will do well to put this one away. but I'm guessing that the kids will like it. At least, that's what I think Toy Biz are thinking.
The main action feature on this toy is a light-up effect in the "bowl head". The button on the back activates a different "face" of Mysterio each time. There's a human face, a monstrous face and an alien-style face. It's a nice little idea, but it grows old after three clicks. The faces also light up whenever the button is pushed, which is why batteries are included for this. Once again, this should make the children happy for a while.
Mysterio is not my favorite villain, but he's a icon from the Spider-Man Universe nonetheless. He's also an affordable option for fans that want to build their collection of Spider-Man characters, as well as kids who merely want a fun toy to play with. I highly recommend this.
