Marvel Universe Baron Zemo (wave 23)

Here's a look at the Marvel Universe wave 23 Baron Zemo.

This figure is similar to the one that came in the SDCC Masters of Evil box set. There are some noticeable differences which you'll see below. 

The purple on the wave 23 one (W23) is slightly darker, and a shiny and darker shade of gold was used on the gloves, belt and boots. The W23 has black paint detail on his shoulder fur. Another difference is that the W23 borrowed Captain America's boots while the SDCC version has the fur top ones.

Both are great figures. I like this new one better for the richer colours and the little extra bit of paint detail. He doesn't look as dull. Here's a thought. We can use one as Heinrich and the other as Helmut.

He comes with a gun and sword. They are the same accessories that came in the SDCC set. He can hardly hold them as the handles are too thin. Hence the need for sticky blu tac you see in his hands.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, hinge elbows, wrist swivel and hinge, torso pivot, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shot. I think we need a taller Red Skull.

If you missed him in the Masters of Evil set, this is an opportunity to get a figure of him. Hope we get more Masters of Evil members. And also Thunderbolts. Thanks for viewing!

You're wrong actually, hercules is the first one to have wrist joints, not zemo

Forgot about Herc. Amended the post. Thanks.

Correct me if I'm wrong... Wasn't Doctor Strange the first figure with wrist joints?
