Today’s Arrival: Hasbro Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Red She-Hulk

25 01 2013

Another figure in the Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Hit Monkey series is the Red She-Hulk (Betty Ross). I got this one out of package off eBay for about retail price but without the Hit Monkey build-a-figure part. She sports by all accounts a new female sculpt and is taller than recent Marvel Legends females like Madame Mask and Hope Summers. She comes with a very saturated red skin color (which kinda burns the eyes) & yellow eerie colored eyes. Her facial expression has no charisma which is kind weird to me. She could have used a sinister smirk.

Her suit has a combat design done in three colors: black with touches of purple and silver.

She includes a very sizable and well designed sword that can only fit in her open right hand. It has a very nice metallic red paint job accompanied by flat silver.

Marvel Legends Red She-Hulk 07

She scales almost the same in height when posed with the original She-Hulk (Jennifer Walters). She’s just a tad shorter 😥

Marvel Legends Red She-Hulk 06

She has all the typical female articulation points and relatively tight joints all around except in the ankles which are just a bit loose to give you dynamic posing problems. She’s easier to articulate in the thighs than She-Hulk which is very much appreciated by this collector. I do wish she had double-jointed elbows rather than a ball hinge for a better range of bending motion. The sword is a tad loose when held in hand so there will be sword holding problems. Like all females with long hair, she has problems with her head range of motion. Still, even though it may sound like I’m putting her down and I really like this figure a lot and recommend her to Hulk fans out there.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Ultimate Captain America

22 01 2013

Dropped by my local Target and spotted the next Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Action Figures. The only figure that tickled my fancy was the Ultimate Captain America action figure. He’s one of the figures in the line without a Hit Monkey build-a-figure part.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 01

He has a brown combat vest that gives him a more equipped look. He rarely used a vest in the comics but its nice edition for the figure.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 02

He’s not entirely accurate to his comic book design. He lacks gray paint apps under the shoulder joints like the gray areas on the inside of the biceps. He also is missing the star logos on top of the shoulders.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 03

Note all the extra combat gear on the rear of his belt. Too bad its not painted differently so they stand out better.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 04

There’s a gun but its molded into his thigh holster 😥 At least it’s painted.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 05

His shield is the same as Bucky Captain America’s with a nice metallic paint palette on the front of the shield.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 06

The head sculpt has the same facial design as the Steve Rogers Super Soldier mold. Very cool because you can head swap between the two figures and have extra display options.

Ultimate Captain America Marvel Legends 2013 07

This is a great figure and a must own for Cap fans. He scales perfectly with previous Cap figures. He has all the articulation for great posing with relatively tight joints. You can even remove the combat vest for a more classic look 🙂

R240 Kotobukiya DC Comics Bishoujo Huntress PVC Statue Review

12 01 2013

This bird of prey has been a long time coming in my opinion. Kotobukiya welcomes the Huntress into their Bishoujo PVC Statue series. Standing 9.5 inches tall (1/7 scale), Huntress is beautifully sculpted in very sexy costume design. She stands on a Griffon-like statue and comes equipped with her bow staff. Priced at $59.99 (Amazon, kotous.com).
