Marvel Universe Mysterio

How many figures do you see in the image above? If you said four, you're absolutely correct. Wait a minute...

Here he is the Master of Illusions. It's hard to miss his fishbowl helmet. The helmet is translucent. You can make out his head inside. There's a slot in the helmet where the head fits into so the it won't move around too much. He's got a very nice cape. It's textured and has many folds in it. The helmet and cape are glued together. It is quite heavy and it will pull his upper torso back. If his cape were just a little longer, it could support him and then he would be able to stand straight. The body is just a repainted standard base body. His glove tops are glued onto his forearms and they have a pattern detail on them. 

His helmet is removeable. And underneath he's got an unpainted head. I can't recall if he appeared unmasked before so I did a quick check. Quentin Beck was indeed bald in an appearance but I don't think the head sculpt here is of him. There's a line down the middle of his head too. You know who it reminds me of? The Chameleon. It would be great if we got him.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck. With helmet on his head can't be moved. There's ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, single hinge elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. 

Hopefully we'll be able to complete the original Sinister Six one day.

Comparison shot.

Mysterio is another great addition. Thanks for viewing!

Great idea with the cotton ball effect!
