Marvel Legends Series Ms Marvel (Kamala Khan)

Happy New Year! I hope the year will be a marvellous one! Let's kick things off with someone who's bright and cheery, Kamala Khan Ms Marvel.

Kamala Khan took over the mantle of Ms Marvel a couple of years backs. She gained her powers after being exposed to the Terrigen Mist and became a superhero soon after, wanting to be like her idol Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers). Her powers are similar to Mr Fantastic's and in addition, she is able to grow and shrink, and also shape-shift.

Ms Marvel is a great looking figure. I love the head sculpt and I think they captured her likeness really well. She wears a hint of a smile and has a pleasant expression. Her mask was sculpted on. The paint apps for that and for a facial features are superb. The hair too was well done and has good detail. She's on the teenage female body similar to the likes of Spider-Gwen and White Tiger. I think they might have modified the upper torso a bit. There's a tiny bit of material of the dress extending out over shoulders. The dress at the lower portion of her torso is a separate piece placed over the joint. It was made of a flexible type of plastic and does not restrict leg articulation much. The paint apps for the dress again are superb. The bracelet is a separate piece and has great detail.    

Her scarf is removable. I like that they put in the extra effort and gave it some paint detail as it should have.

Accessories. She comes with a pair of enlarged, elongated arms. Also included is the torso of the BAF Sandman.

The enlarged arms have some nice detail on them. They sculpted in some hand lines and you can also make out the fingernails. The arms swap in at the elbows.

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. She can look down okay but not up due to her hair. Head rotation is hindered by her scarf. 

Her enlarged, elongated arms have only swivel hinge elbows. I would have liked if they had wrist swivel. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure! I would have liked if she came with elongated legs as well. Thanks for viewing!
