The Avengers 3.75" Shock Strike Thor

Thor rounds up the Avengers movie 3.75" figures released so far. Well, there's also the Hulk but I didn't get him as I prefer the 5" figure from the Incredible Hulk movie line.

Thor is a nice figure. Good sculpt. He's got a better likeness than the figures from the Thor movie line. He has a mean high and mighty look. And the straighter hair makes a difference. The costume is of a different design from previously. There's great detail on it. The cape is the same one that came with previous Thor movie figures. Its long and grand but it can hinder posing him, especially in crouching or kneeling positions. He's got good paint. I like the navy blue colour instead of black. 

This figure is slightly taller than the previous Thor movie figures. The unarticulated body does make him look better.  

Aside from the regular Mjolnir, he comes with a hammer launcher. Its pretty cool looking with the lightning effects. It has a peg and clip for him to hold it with. The projectile is a lightning charged Mjolnir. With the projectile loaded, its difficult for him to stand with the launcher. 

Thor doesn't need no launcher. He can throw Mjolnir on his own.    

Articulation, He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel and double jointed knees. That's the same as Captain America.

I like that there is some height difference between the characters.

I think this is the best figure of the 3.75" Avengers movie characters released so far. I recommend getting it. That's all for now, thanks for viewing!
