The Avengers 3.75" Cosmic Axe Chitauri

The Avengers 3.75" series 4 is out at local retail. It's very surprising as we don't usually get anything beyond the first two series of a movie line. 

I'll get straight to the main issue. This Chitauri figure is the same as the one in the Cosmic Chariot Invasion pack. Which means there's no elbow or knee articulation. Very disappointing. And there on the package he's nicely posed with elbow and knees bent. There are paint differences. This figure is dull coloured, which is more accurate to how they appeared in the movie. Also more of the armour is painted, notably on his arms and legs. 

He comes with two accessories. A blaster rifle...

... and a missle launching axe. There's some nice detail on it. It's supposed to be a gimmick accessory but I think it suits the Chitauri just fine.

Articulation. It's just a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel and swivel hinge ankles.

I now have an army of two. And its going to stay that way, at least until I can get a discount on them. Thanks for viewing!

It's a shame about the articulation, the sculpt looks really nice. I have yet to see any of these in my area, but sorta hope the hit the discount chains so I won't feel guilty about buying multiples.

Great review!
