Marvel Legends Hope Summers

Next up is look at Marvel Legends Hope Summers. 

Hope is the only female figure in the wave. I like her head sculpt. Her youth shines through. And her hair is really well done. She's wearing a torn and tattered cape. It's well painted. It has a worn look. There's nice detail on her gauntlets and leg armour. The gauntlets are separate pieces and are not scultped on. A good thing about that is you can rotate it so it doesn't get in the way of her wrist articulation. 

She comes with a gun accessory. She cannot grip it securely and it tends to drop out of her hand.

Articulation. She's got a ball joint neck. Her hair and cape hinders head rotation and she can hardly look up or down. Shoulders have ball and hinge, elbows have swivel and hinge, wrist have swivel and hinge. She's got a ball joint torso. There's ball and hinge hips, upper thigh swivel, double jointed knees and swviel and hinge ankles.

Height wise Hope is a little too tall. Would prefer her to be at least a half a head shorter. 

Be sure to catch Hope in this year's Marvel Comics event. Thanks for viewing!
