Marvel Universe Elektra

Here's the Marvel Universe Elektra.

Elektra looks good. I got a couple of gripes though. First, her eyes were painted looking to her right.  Second, her head scarf was not fully painted. There's a gap of hair showing between the "cap" portion and the ends. I like her long flowing hair. The straps on her arms and legs were painted on. The hanging part of her sash is is a little too wide. If we pose her with both legs raised, the whole sash will move up to her abs.

She comes with two sais. They are made of soft plastic. Her grip on them is quite loose. 

If not for both her hands having been sculpted with a gap between her first and second finger so she can hold them better, she'll be dropping them whenever we move the figure. It's quite irritating if we want to pose her with the sais in the reverse direction as in the image above. 
One more thing. You can store the sais in her sash. I just noticed it on the card back image and tried it.

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel, and ankle hinge and pivot. Her hair restricts head articulation. She can only turn her head about 45 degrees either side. She cannot look up but she can look down very well.


Comparison shots.

That's all for now. Thanks for viewing!

Heaps better than the horror that was the Superhero showdown Elektra.

A shame this figure suffers from the legs forever ratio problem (not that a little surgery can't fix it).
