Marvel Legends Constrictor

Tentacle action in this post!

I'm of course talking about Constrictor's primary weapons. They're not exactly tentacles, more like coils or cables. I did a quick check on wiki. They were originally made of adamantium and then later vibranium. They can be launched and retracted back into his gauntlets. The cables on the figure are soft and flexible. A good thing is that they are solid enough to hold their position in the air. Would have liked if they were made with flexible wire so we can better pose them. And also detachable, don't think he walks around with the cables activated all the time. The figure itself is really good. The headsculpt once again is excellent. He looks menacing. He's spotting a sinister looking grin and bearing his sharp teeth. The orange area on his head is sculpted and not simply painted on, and you can make out his ears through his mask. There's a belt on his waist. Don't think he wears one. It's not really an issue for me as it blends into his costume. The paint overall is good. The black lines that go around his boots don't meet properly hence there are bits sticking out. Again this is a minor issue. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, forearm swivel, chest expansion (shoulders can be moved forwards and backwards), ab crunch, waist swivel, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calves rotate, and swivel hinge ankles.

Look what Hulk has done... As I said before, flexible wire would have been nice.  

He's of a good height and size and he fits in well with other characters. 

Great figure. It's always nice to get more villains. That's two in this wave. Three including Terrax. Thanks for viewing!

This is my favorite figure in the first series hands down. I agree w/ you about flexible wires...that would have put this figure over the top IMO.
