Asgardian Glow Marvel's Odin

I already had the previous version, but I thought the colours were pretty cool and so I got it.

Here his armour is shiny blue and gold, and his clothes are maroon. The combination gives him more contrast. Aside from the colours, this figure is the same as the previously released Shield Bash Odin. The head has a good likeness to how he appeared in the movie. His armour and clothes has some nice detail. His clothes are leather like. The cape is attached to his back and cannot be removed. Well, you could if you wanted. Overall, he's a very nice looking figure.

Articulation. He's got a ball and hinge neck, ball and hinge shoulders, swivel and hinge elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, ball and hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and swivel and hinge ankles. 

This figure is the third version of this particular Odin figure. There were two versions of the Shield Bash Odin. The one with gold armour is the most movie accuarate one. It's a tie between gold and blue armoured ones for me, I like both of them. The silver one is nice too but it lacks the "kingly quality" when compared with the other two.   

He has the same oversized, gimicky sword and shield like the Shield Bash Odin. But here they are dark grey and gold in colour. The colours bring out detail on them and they look so much better. The sides of the sword open up at the push of a button and you can further open it up into a claw like weapon. Push the button on the shield and spikes pop out. Would have liked if he were given normal sized weapons, and also a helmet.   

Odin is around the same height as the Hammer Smash Thor and shorter than the Marvel Universe Secret Wars Thor.   

This figure has its own appeal but I think I'm going to stick with the gold armoured one for display. I'll use this one when he needs a wardrobe change.
