Marvel Infinite Series - Doc Ock
I must say that I'm not 100 percent liking this version of Doctor Octopus.It's a nice little figure,but not the Ock I really wanted In my Marvel Universe collection.I'm not even sure what they based this look on.If you want to see a solid rendition of this character,then check out the Marvel Showdown version.This Is a sturdier figure than the showdown Ock and the tentacles fit snug enough into four small holes in his back.They can be moved around for different poses and with a little patience and balancing,you might even be able to have Ock hold a figure captive over his head.I'm not crazy about the body or head sculpt.The colors are Doc Ock- esque but the height of the figure Is a bit off.I've always pegged him to be a bit on the shorter,more pudgier side.The head sculpt Is nothing like the 80's comic Doc Ock and Is a bit too narrow up top.To me ,he looks alot like the Doctor Octopus In the Amazing Spider Man animated series.Oh,and watch out for paint slop on these.I didn't realize It until after I took a pic but mine had a small black spot on his hair and some yellow slop on his neck area.I couldn't see It through the packaging ,so If your a nit picker,really look your Ock over before purchasing.Overall he Is a nice figure.When you look at It,you see Doctor Octopus.Just not the iconic Doc Ock of yesteryear .On a scale of 1 to 10,I give It a 7.9 ;)
Here's new jack Doc Ock next to Original Gangsta Dock Ock.
