Marvel Legends Infinite Series Tiger Shark

From one orangey villain to another. This here is Tiger Shark.

Tiger Shark is a character I'm not too familiar with. I can only recall a couple of stories with him, most of it involving the Masters of Evil. The figure is of him in his classic look which I prefer. I'm not keen on his shark form. He's got a great head sculpt. He's got a very menacing look. I like the furrowed brow. The mask is stretched at his eyes. My figure has a dot of paint on his eye which is annoying. I also like his sharp pointy teeth. The body reuses Sabretooth's body, even the hands are the same. The paint application is rather poor. The orange was painted on his torso and it does not adequately cover the base purple. It appears slightly darker than other areas of his costume. There are smudges on the purple pattern design, some quite noticeable.

The fin on his head has a tough looking, bumpy texture to it which is great.

Articulation. He's got ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. The head fin hinders neck articulation. He still can look in all directions as the fin is flexible enough. Just don't leave him in a pose which strains the fin for too long. 

Comparison shots.

Tiger Shark is an okay figure. Baron Zemo's Masters of Evil is still some way from completion but it's getting there. Thanks for viewing!
