Hobgoblin is a character of the Spider-Man universe that was created in 1983 by the writer Roger Stern and the artist John Romita, Jr. The character was created because the writer Toger Stern found himself under pressure to have Spider-Man fight the Green Goblin, but because he didn’t want to ressurect Norman Osborn or Bart Hamilton (the previous Green Goblins). With this Hobgoblin was born, a character that originally ha a secret identity. That was maintained during several volumes until it was unveiled has being Roderick Kingsley, a milionairy obsessed by Normal Osborn.
In the LEGO world Hobgoblin only has a version that is faithful to the comics. The set where it was release is 76058 Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-Up, a set that brought Spider-Man and Ghost Rider.
The minifigure is really good. The expression in the face is excelent and capturing very weel the spirit of the character. The cape is probably the best piece of the minifigure being all shredded. The body has a fair amount of detail both in the front and back part that, although is simple, is enough to be faithful to its original.
In general the minifigure is very well conceived and is an excelent represention (the only) of the comic character and an excellent villain to have in a MARVEL collection.
