BootLEGO Silk Minifigure by Sheng Yuan
1) They are inexpensive as f*%(k.
2) You can get obscure characters that LEGO will likely never make.
3) Did I mention how inexpensive they are?
Also: Silk. I don't know much about Silk, other than she's a Spider-Man ally with the same powers as Peter Parker (apparently she was bitten by the same spider that bit Petey shortly after he gained his extraordinary powers.) Silk is a pretty unlikely minifigure to ever grace an official LEGO set, and I am always down for female superheroes, especially female Spider-verse superheroes (Silk being the first one I am aware of) so I simply could not resist adding her to my collection.
Did I mention she cost me a whopping 38 cents?
Silk comes with your standard Sheng Yuan base (not shown), a spider and a simple web stand/build. I really like the spider and web piece as they fit well into any Spider-Man themed build. It's nice to get accessories/extra parts that aren't random and useless.
Silk's hair piece is a bit rougher than usual, not the smooth/shiny quality of a standard LEGO hairpiece but more a rough/muted plastic type. It does give her hair a nice dulled texture, although the piece also has an extra hole on the right side - I assume this hairpiece may have been derived/ripped-off from the LEGO Friends line and has that extra hole so a flower or bow or other hair accessory can be added. I don't know and I really don't care; It does little to detract from the piece and if it did bother me 1) I could replace it with any other countless LEGO/bootLEGO hairpiece I have lying around or 2) I could GET OVER IT BECAUSE THE FIG COST ME 38 CENTS FERCRYINOUTLOUD!
