Marvel Legends Series Iron Fist (Dormammu BAF Series)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Iron Fist from the Dormammu BAF series.

Ever since we got the white costumed Iron Fist in the Odin BAF series I've been hoping for the green costume version to come out. And now we have him. And done on what I feel is a more suitable body too. The figure reuses the "Pizza" Spider-man body. There's one notable difference and that is at the forearms. Iron Fist has forearm swivel and that is where we can swap out the hands. I have put the wrapped fists on the figure first as it's the default ones. I like the sculpted detail of the wrappings. And I like that they did a brown wash on it to make it look dirty. Nice! The dragon logo on his chest was well painted. The belt is a separate piece. He's got a new head sculpt. He wears a serious expression on his face. I like the wrinkles on the mask and how it "flows" at back into the knot. It looks better than on the white costumed Iron Fist. The black pattern and eyes were well painted. 

Accessories. He comes with an extra pair of energy fists and flame effect parts for when he punches. The BAF part is the shoulder armour of Dormammu. I wish we got some more additional hands like with the white costumed Iron Fist. We unfortunately cannot use those hands with this figure as they are not compatible.

I like how they did the energy fists. They made the actual hands smaller and encased it in yellow translucent plastic to give the effect that they are glowing. This way is better compared to adding effect pieces on the hands which may make them look bulky. With proper lighting you can even make these fist glow for real. The flame effect pieces may be used with either set of fists.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, butterfly joint, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, forearm swivel, swivel hinge wrists (wrapped fists), ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Note the energy fists have no wrists joints. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure. Thanks for viewing!

I cannot wait to get this figure in hand!
I never cared about the character until reading "The Last Iron Fist Story" by Ed Brubaker, where I just fell in love with the character. (This figure's look with the wraps comes right from that story)
It's crazy how much of an improvement this figure is looking at that comparison shot.
And great review by the way man, you have a real talent for posing figures.
