Marvel Legends Series Master Mordo (Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Master Mordo. Wait master? 

Poor Mordo what did they do to you? Don't tell me they simply used a marker to colour your beard? Cause that's exactly what it looks like. The beard looks very thick. And what's worse is that it's glossy. He looks really cartoony... More on the head later. 

The torso and arms are new. The legs, from the thighs downwards I believe reuses those form the MCU Star-Lord. He's dressed in robes. Both the outer and inner robes ares textured and have a great amount of detail.

The outer robe is removable and this is how he looks without it. It's a good look I must say.

Some close-ups of his head. And that beard... he doesn't look pleased about it either. The eyes were painted looking up which is another complaint. Look past all that and I think he has a good head sculpt. There are a couple of scars on his forehead. The dreadlocks look great and have good detail on them. The pale yellow things on his robes are separate pieces stuck on. Those and the bands on his wrist should have a shiny look, with with the gold parts of his belt. He's wearing several layers of clothing and each layer is textured and has great detail.  

He carries a Sling Ring on his belt. Check out the intricate pattern on the brown pouch thingy. Very nice!

Accessories. He comes with a pair of gripping hands, a pair of fists, a crossbow and The Staff of the Living Tribunal. The BAF parts are the right arm and a right fist for Rintrah. 

Mordo finally gets his proper weapon, The Staff of the Living Tribunal. There's great detail on the handles and body. There's also a bit of shading on it. Click images to enlarge. He can only hold it properly with his right hand. The grip is loose in his left.

The crossbow is an odd accessory for Mordo. Is it some sort of relic? I can't think of any of that sort. It looks old. The brown body is textured and looks very weathered. He's able to hold it in either hand.

Articulation. He's got a dumbbell joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint waist, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He cannot look up. He can look down just a bit. With the outer robe on the arms will form a Y shape when raised. The elbows can bend more than ninety degrees which is good. The waist joint only allows a little bend in all directions. The skirt piece will hinder his legs. His left leg cannot be raised as much as his right. 

Comparison shots.

The figure is good. There's lots of nice detail. The thick beard spoils it for me. Thanks for viewing!

Mild spoiler for No Way Home, but wasn't Ned playing with a crossbow in Strange's basement?

You're right! Forgot about that.
