Marvel Legends Series Scarlet Witch (Captain America: Civil War)

Rounding out Team Cap is Scarlet Witch. This figure is from the Abomination BAF series.

Scarlet Witch is a beauty! I really love how she turned out. There are one or two issues but she looks great for the most part. I think she's got a great head sculpt. They dolled her up too much though. There's too much blush applied on her cheeks. She had more of a plain look in the movie. Still I don't mind her looking this pretty. She should have some eyeliner applied. I recall her eyes to be quite dark. Her eyebrows, eyes and lips were very well painted. There's great detail in her hair and there's even some black shading done too. Nice! The body is all new. She looks a little out of proportion. I feel the legs are too long. I like her hands. They were sculpted with fingers in mid-motion as if she were using her abilities. She's wearing leather like gloves and there are rings on her fingers. Very nice! Her heart shaped necklace was sculpted on and well painted. Her outfit looks great and very well detailed. You can see the design of her blouse. There are wrinkles in her pants and boots. And also her coat which is textured! Outstanding! 

Accessories. She comes with two hex effect pieces. The BAF part is the head of Abomination. 

Her hex effect pieces look more like flame effects and are way too big. They cover her hands fully and remind me more of boxing gloves when put on. They have red painted on them and are opaque. I would have preferred something smaller and translucent for her hex effects.

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge right wrist, swivel and "sword hinge " (up and down) left wrist, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Maybe I should say ankle swivel. When in use we still have to adjust the thighs quite a bit so as to keep her feet flat on the surface. She can look down well but not up due to her hair. Head rotation is hindered a little by her hair too. The torso joint allows her to bend forward just a bit. Bending backwards is a bit better.  

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Now we need an update for Hawkeye but I'm in no hurry for that. Thanks for viewing!
