Marvel Legends Hit Monkey

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Hit Monkey.

You'll need to purchase three figures to assemble it. The figures needed are:

Red She-Hulk/Lyra - Body and legs
Protector/Iron Fist - Head and machine guns
Hyperion/Sentry - Arms and pistols

Hit Monkey is another character which I don't know anything about. He's a relatively new character. The gist of his story is contained in the Tales of Hit Monkey which come with the figures listed above. Wiki has about the same information.
Click on the images to enlarge.

Hit Monkey is a cool figure. The sunglasses and suit look really good on him. And not only is he wearing gloves on his hands, hes wearing a pair on his feet as well. Hes got a great headsculpt. I like how his hair turned out. It has a neat, gelled look which is fitting. He has trouble standing. That and a faulty knee joint are the only issues I have with the figure.

Articulation. Hes got a ball hinge neck, peg hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, single hinge knee and ankle hinge and pivot.
He can hold his weapons well.

He can't hold the guns with his feet. I just put his toe through the trigger guard.

A comparison pic.

Looks like he found some friends. I'm trying to think of other monkey type characters in the Marvel Universe. Only Mandrill and Man Ape come to mind.   

Great figure. This wave has started to appear in more stores now. Look out for them. Thanks for viewing!

That origin has to be the most moronic origin I have read in awhile. Hit monkey....Lord.
