I have long been jealous of countries that enjoy having Kinder Eggs available and always grab a few whenever I'm north of the border. The idea of a toy hiding in candy always appealed to me. Nestle tried to bring the concept to the states about a decade ago with Magic Balls, they didn't make it.
So now we have these things based on the current Spidey cartoon.
I haven't seen much of this "Ultimate Spider-Man" incarnation and haven't liked what I've seen. Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends will always be my web slinger cartoon of choice. Of course that didn't stop me from plunking down three bucks for these guys.
I really like the Spidey face design on the box and egg.
One half of the chocolate is really stuck on the egg.
Out of the three, one was a double so I only got these two different figures. Disappointed I didn't get a Spider-Man, maybe next time. For only a dollar, I'll probably grab a few more.
The figure is more substantial than I expected. Much nicer than Zerboz (formerly Heroics) figures at the same price.
