Marvel Legends Series Punisher & Jessica Jones (Man-Thing BAF)


The other two Netflix figures from the Man-Thing BAF series, The Punisher and Jessica Jones.




I loved the Punisher in season two of Daredevil. I've been wanting a figure of him since then and now he's finally here! Glad to have him in hand! He's got a great head sculpt. I think he's got a very good likeness. I love the paint detail. There's the cuts on his nose, bruising around his left eye and a nice five o'clock shadow. They also applied some light black for the shaved portion at the back of his head and some light grey to show slightly longer hair. Very nice! He's on a new body. He wears a protective vest which has nice detail on it. And not to mention the awesome painted skull! There are wrinkles on his coat sleeves and pants. The boots too have good detail. The laces and the ridges underneath look good. His coat is soft and flexible and has some nice detail on it. I can't seem to straighten it out and it appears slanted on him. 


























A close-up of his head. He's got a really good likeness. Here you can better see the cuts on his nose and the bruising around his left eye.


There's some nice sculpted detail on his protective vest. It's got several straps and clips on it and also what I think are some ammo shells.


Jessica Jones is my second least favourite character from the Marvel Netflix shows. I don't know. It could be because of the rather boring first season. I hope things improve in the next. There's not a lot to say about the figure. The body reuses Mary Jane's body with sleeve arms and gloved hands. There's quite a bit of wrinkle detail on her sleeves, and some on her gloves. The jacket is soft and flexible and has a good amount of detail. You can make out the zips, seams and pockets. It's also textured. And to top it off, there's some silver paint applied. Very nice! I love the appearance of her jeans with the faded sections. The "boot cuffs" are separate pieces added. The head sculpt is good. I think they captured her weary, "can't be bothered" look well. Her eyes were painted looking to her right on my figure which is annoying.


























Accessories

Jessica has no accessories. The included BAF part is the torso of Man-Thing.

Punisher comes with a rifle and and pistol. The BAF part is the left arm of Man-Thing.



Articulation

Jessica has got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. She can look down okay but not up due to her hair.

The Punisher has got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. He can look up and down very well. The boots restrict the ankle hinge. I would have liked if he could raised his foot more so it'll be easier to achieve a running pose for instance.






























Comparison shots.






The Punisher is a great figure. Jessica is good too. I love that Hasbro decided to make these. Now waiting on Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Thanks for viewing!
