I just got a Spider-Man striker. His spring does not exist. No pull. I considered ripping him open to check it out when it hit me...Rubber bands! I used the virtually invisible rubber bands from my Ghost Rider Starter Set. I wrapped it around Spidey's foot on his right leg, went around his left knee then behind and attached to his right hand going around his web blob and fastening on his wrist. I did the same with a second "ivisible" rubber band and wha-lah! My Spider-Man now works! It actually looks cool like some of his web is on him.
I'll bet I could put a few more rubber bands on him to increase his point value. Maybe I'll add a few pennies between his feet for added stability...just joking.
