About this deal
Hasbro has released several Hobgoblins in the last decade, but Hobby is a popular character that there’s always demand for, so I’m not at all surprised to see a new version flying into this year’s Spider-Man Marvel Legends Retro Series. This is where you will find any My Little Pony, Monster High, Barbie or Polly Pocket items that we may have in from time to time. We pride ourselves on being one of the chillest communities on Reddit, so we ask that you READ THE STICKIED POST, abide by our rules, and report any issues promptly. Hobgoblin's glider doesn't work all that well, however, as the feet just don't fit into the straps that well.
With over 80 years of entertainment history, Marvel has become a cornerstone of fan collections around the world. I received the Fan Favorite edition instead but seller was quick to fix the problem and worked out a solution. Deploying an eerie arsenal of pumpkin bombs and razor-sharp bats from his goblin glider, the criminal mastermind Hobgoblin has Spider-Man constantly on his guard! The energy orange bomb has got a stem and an evil face painted on in bright green, and can be secured snugly enough with Hobby’s fingers. Hobgoblin has an older style of build to him but all of his articulation is still accounted for and still works well.
With over 80 years of comic book and movie history, Marvel has become a cornerstone of fan collections around the world. Pumpkin bomb does not fit in hand without applying mass amounts of pressure, goblin glider doesn’t even hold up the figure let alone does it allow space for the feet to slide in securely. This Legends Series Hobgoblin figure features extensive articulation, offering dynamic posability with other Marvel Legends figures.

Hobgoblin does unfortunately have the rubbery elbows of some of the figures from a couple years back. This further makes balancing the figure on the Goblin Glider difficult, and it’s a shame Hobby is stuck with the now obsolete pinned knees and elbows. The “gimmick” of this particular Vintage Hobgoblin figure is that it’s meant to be closely based on the 90s Spider-Man The Animated Series (TAS) design—hence the bright colors and lack of paint wash on the toy. Premium Posability And Articulation: This 6-inch Legends Series Hobgoblin figure features extensive articulation, offering dynamic posability with other Marvel Legends figures.
There’s lots of integrated super-articulation as always, but with no fists and an inferior glider, there’s not a ton of cool poses to stick this guy in besides throwing a bomb or holding his glider (or standing on it very straightly). Still, this is a great classic version of the character and fans of Spider-Man and his foes should definitely give him a look. Since 2016 we have traded in Ghost and other band merchandise from all the top rock and metal bands.
