Spider-Man vs. Vulture - Main

Time for some Spidey action again: Today he has to fight the Vulture who had planted a bomb on top of the Daily Bugle Building.

 

Several ideas and incidents lead to this MOC. First of all, I got my hands on a custom Scarlet Spider minifig. The comic fans among you know that this is not Peter Parker, but Ben Reilly, who first appeared in the clone story that dragged on and on during the 90s.

Although I didn’t like the story very much, I loved the idea of Peter having an ‘identical twin brother’ and … the new costume. I know, many people hated it, but I loved it and always will. Deal with it ;o)

 

I saw my chance to make the already amazing minifig even better by using Wildstyle’s hood (after varnishing it blue).

 

Since I was already working with spray paint, I took the great eagle’s wings from the new Hobbit sets and created a custom Vulture.

 

Well, two minifigs are not a MOC – I needed a backdrop. Like almost every designer, I’m also a fontaholic. It came to my mind that most of the classic newspapers used Fraktur (or Gothic) fonts for their logos and I thought it would be a lot of fun to create huge Fraktur advertising letters on top of the Daily Bugle Building, which it was.

 

(I have to apologise for the dust on the MOC. I forgot to clean it and after I took all photos, I was too lazy to dust it and take all photos again – sorry)
