Whoo! First upload!
Inspired by HappyMoon's great articulating Iron Spider legs, combined with the disappointment of the official "legs included" Marvel Legends Iron Spider not having the legs articulate, I've cooked up a set of Marvel Legends scale articulated legs!
HappyMoon's design was great, but had some issues with actual articulation and especially with joints. I've corrected them and added bore holes to fit a 20 gauge wire to use as an armature; so that the legs actually hold their poses. Also included is a version of the "backpack" with the peg to fit the Marvel Legends figures that have it. Sadly, the very figures I'm making this for, Superior Spidey and Iron Spidey, actually don't. (Maybe new re-releases will?)
All pieces are scaled to print as they are, with supports. I recommend using Cura's concentric supports, as they're the easiest to remove. If you were wanting to scale these pieces back up to human-size, they're 15% of HappyMoon's original size. I chose this scale because it sizes the legs to look more accurate to the comics (where Peter/Otto can almost be vertical, but also lifted off the ground), instead of the size Marvel Legends usually come with.
Print in Gold for Iron Spider! Print in Red for Superior Spider-Man! Maybe black for a sick Symbiote Spider-Man?
Anyway, hope you all enjoy!
Note: You don't have to wrap the armature wire all the way down. Just pull through each piece and crimp at the very end. BUT I do recommend linking two legs together using a single piece of wire, (effectively making a "U" shape) starting at the tip of one leg, linking through each piece and through the harness and back through the second leg from first part to the tip; and most of all do not put a horizontal "bolt" through the first knuckle where the leg attaches to the harness. This will allow your legs to swivel as well as flex. Basically what I've done in my photo is to both, string two legs using one wire, but also wrap the ends of the wire on each leg down and use it to double as a horizontal link through each knuckle (except the very bottom one).
Sorry if that's confusing, I'll try to work up a diagram.
