It's been a busy, busy week and there's no sign of let-up for the time being... Hopefully I can get some toy things done this weekend. Continuing the Marvel Legends Series 3.75", here's a look at Quasar.
The cosmic section just got a boost with the arrival of Quasar. He's one I've been wanting to add to the Annihilators. Now all we need is Ronan. If we can believe ebay, Cosmo should be coming soon along with the Collector and a bunch of others. Hopefully that set won't cost too much. Anyway Quasar's got a nice head sculpt. I especially love the hair. It looks a little too long but I think the wind-swept hair works for him very well. There's great detail too. I like what they did with the eyes. There's no pupils and there's an orange outline at the top half of his eyes. It gives the impression that he's bursting with power. There's a paint blemish on his head. I'm quite annoyed about it. But on the other hand it kinds looks like a scar and makes him look more badass. The body largely reuses the Young Avengers Vision body. The forearms are new. His bands were sculpted which is a nice surprise. He also has new knee joints with sculpted on knee guards. Very nice! Quasar is wearing his modern costume. The paint details were done very well on the front. The lines and symbol are clean and straight. And I love the gold tone used. His cape is new too. The shoulder padding is part of it and is attached at the back. The front side is not connected. This allows it to be moved aside and allows for better arm articulation.
Just to show you how the back of his costume looks and a better look at his cape. The paint apps on his back are poor. The lines are very jagged.
Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. He cannot look up or down. He is able to raise his arms fully but the shoulder armour will look awkward.
Great figure! I think it's the best one from this latest wave. Thanks for viewing!
