Marvel Legends Steve Rogers (variant)

Marvel Legends has returned! Seemed like forever since Hasbro announced it. First up is Steve Rogers.

Like the new packaging. Vibrant colours. Like the comic style wordings for the bubble. I'll probably use the name card with a base when I find a suitable one.   

Included is the Tales of Terrax. It gives a brief history of Terrax who is the BAF for this wave. Each figure comes with a little bit of information. There are six parts in all. Very nice. (You can click the image to enlarge. Its still rather small to read though...) 

This is the variant Steve Rogers figure. His costume is black and he comes with a photon shield while the regular figure's costume is navy blue and comes with a classic shield. I would have like to have gotten the regular version as its more comic accurate, but at the same time I wanted the photon shield. Looks like I'll be hunting for a cheap regular version.

This is a nice figure. Hes got a good likeness. He  reminds me more of Matt Tracker from M.A.S.K thouugh. Must be the combed hair. While the sculpt is great, the size of his head is a little too big. It spoils the look of an otherwise well proportioned figure. The belt is removeable. There's nice detail on it and also on the calf covers. There's a hole on his back where you can put his shield. You can use the Toybiz ML stands with it. The stars are missing from his shoulders, other than that, I've no issue with the paint.           

He comes with a photon shield. Its a very nice looking shield. It is supposed to be made up of energy, hence the translucent appearance. The shield utilises a peg and clip, similar to some of the shields that came with 3.75" scale figures. Don't really like the attaching devices here. As you'll see later, from certain angles there's a noticeable gap between shield and figure.   

He also comes with two pistols. The grip is loose in his right hand but its fine with his left.

Articulation. He's got a ball and hinge neck. He can look up and down really well. Theres ball and hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, forearm swivel, ab crunch, waist swivel, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and swivel and hinge ankles. 

 He's taller than ML1 and Face Off Captain America.

 Thanks for viewing! Check back soon for another Legends figure.
