I've read a lot about the similarities between these two pins. I own STLE but have never seen or played a Spidey. For those of you with both pins, are they too similar to consider adding SM to my lineup?
Completely different games. I highly recommend you NOT add SM to your lineup unless your a huge fan of the movies, and I mean drop jaw - I pretend I'm centerflake and run around in my spidey underoos type of fan. The game is overrated; flow and rules are great - everything else, not so much. Great on location game, not so great in the living room.
I owned Spiderman at one time and I do miss the pin, but after getting STLE the feeling is gone! LOL ST is faster and more flashier. I never was a big fan of the pixeled movie grahics on the DMD screen (which Spidey has), and the layout of ST does kinda remind me of SM. Spidey did have one more toy that ST (Doc Ock), but the cool warp ramp on ST fills the void. However, ST gets the vote for me. Having both owned NIB at one time, I just had a "happier" feeling opening, playing, and admiring the ST pin than any other pin I purchased NIB before. WOZ was a close second.
I own them both,they do not play the same to me.
I must be the only one on here that likes spidey though
I have both, I can see the similarities for sure, but they don't come through in gameplay or feel while playing.
Have both and plan on keeping both! You could find similarities in many pins. Completely different experience due to themes. My SM was one of the last to be released, LEDs throughout , speaker kit , Mirror blades, ect. Providing
as close to the newest visual look as possible. STLE is more appealing, my wife actually likes it over all of my pins.
