Toying Around Reviews - Spin Master Black Adam Movie: Black Adam

Updated: Feb 8, 2023

Today we are checking out Black Adam from THE BLACK ADAM movie line by Spin Master. Both Spin Master and McFarlane Toys have the rights to boys’ toys for DC comics. McFarlane will be doing the more adult collector figures whereas Spin Master will be geared toward the younger kids. Spin Master is a Canadian multinational toy and entertainment company marketing consumer products for children. This new movie line from Spin Master will have two different-sized lines, one for 12-inch figures and one for 4-inch figures.


PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.

The Roc…I mean Black Adam comes in the standard packaging for this line. It is a blister card that houses both the figures and the weapons, The normal DC figures from Spin Master have secret weapons. For this line Spin Master has chosen not to do this. A Black Adam photo is displayed on the right side of the box. The figure and the weapons are below that in the blister. The Black Adam Movie logo is displayed at the bottom along with the Spin Master 1st edition sticker. Turning the box to the side we get a good look at the side of Black Adam, this is good for anyone who wishes to keep the figure mint on the card. Turning the box around we get some promo pictures of the rest of the figures in the movie line. Moving the box around one last time we get another look at the side of Black Adam.


OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Black Adam off the card we can see that for such a little figure they did give him some nice details on the suit even if it looks a little more comic-based than a movie-based figure. The head, overall, looks very good for being such a small figure. He does look like the Rock


ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.

So the only thing Black Adam comes with is some Lighting effects and that's it.

BLACK ADAM’S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: BALL-JOINTED NECK - With this joint, you can turn the head 360 degrees.
