The detail on the head is amazing, but the body is kinda lacking... I mean, Venom isn't SUPER detailed as it is on his body but it definitely makes for a plain sculpt like this.

What's the price point usually on these 2-packs...cause I also saw there is a purple and black 2 pack coming as well in one of those leaked pics

The body is just not dynamic at all, doesn't have the traditional big bulky presence that is Venom. While that style fits Dorbz just fine it is falling flat here. :(

$18-20 most places.

The torso on these just looks like a Dorbz to me. I like the details on the face but I can't get past that.

Agree 100%! The sculpt for this figure looks like a Dorbz that was sent to the reject pile. It doesn't have the stumpy but detailed bodies of some other Hikaris.

Something doesn't look right about these.
Hope they have better designs for upcoming Marvel.
I LOVE DORBZ. \:D/

Both the Joker and Batman ones look great, so it's a bummer to see the lack of detail on this.

I concur. The ball was dropped hard. I'm a huge Spider-Man fan and looked forward to the Mini Hikari line for Marvel. Hopefully, Spider-Man will turn out good when it comes.

I'm also hoping for some great sculpts for Spidey, iron man and hopefully The Hulk.
