Marvel Universe Puck

You've seen the largest figure in the wave. Now here's the smallest.

Puck is a great looking figure. Theres a good likeness. The left pupil is painted to the extreme left of his eye on my figure. Its quite annoying. Hes got great detail on his limbs. There are tiny lines etched on them. It gives the appearance of hair on his body. Its very well done. I think its better than having his hair painted on. His left hand looks a little big but I guess its better this way to enable him to do some acrobatic poses. The paint on his costume is great. Not so the paint on his skin. The paint is inconsistent in several areas. I'm okay with it as the plastic underneath is a lighter flesh colour so you can't really tell from a distance. I like the darker painted flesh tone. He can stand well. The way he was made, he'll be always leaning to his left.

He comes with Snowbird in owl form. There's nice feather detail on her. And she is well painted in light blue and white.

She can rest securely on either of Puck's wrist.

The collectible comic shot is of Alpha Flight #5.

Articulation. Theres a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, wrist swivel, peg hinge hips, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. Some elbow and knee articulation would have been nice. He can look up and down very well. For the hips, the leg peg is attached up into his body. The legs can be rotated and he can spread them. He can only raise his legs slightly due to his body and the size of his legs. The left leg can be raised a little higher than his right.

He is able to stand on one hand. It just requires a little patience.

Hopefully the other members of Alpha Flight will be released.

Comparison shots.

Great figure. I can't help but feel a little shortchanged though. He should have been a pack in. Oh well at least we got him. Thanks for viewing!

Sasquatch is from the 90s Toy Biz Alpha Flight line. It came in a two-pack with Vindicator.
