Marvel Avengers Infinite Series 3.75" Hyperion

Next up in this first wave of the Marvel Avengers Infinite Series is Hyperion.

It took me awhile to figure out if this figure is an all new sculpt. It finally hit me that he's on a retooled Cable's body. He's got a new left arm and boots. The new boots are shorter so he's shorter than Cable as you'll see further down. The gold portion of his costume was sculpted on and I like that the studs are present on it. He's got a great head sculpt. His hair has nice detail. The eyes were painted looking upwards unfortunately. The cape is much better looking than the almost straight one on the Marvel Legends figure. It's removable. There are two holes in his back where it attaches to. It doesn't stay on well and falls off easily when you tilt him backwards. He's got excellent paint application. The shiny gold on his logo and lower torso is very smooth. The outline of his logo is clean and sharp. 

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

Comparison shots.

Great figure. Thanks for viewing!

Does this mean the rest of his team will be made?

I don't know about that but it'll be great if they were.
