Marvel Universe Black Knight

Here's a look at the Marvel Universe Black Knight.

There are several characters who have used the name Black Knight in the comics. On the back of the card, this figure is said to be Sir Percy. His appearance looks more like Dane Whitman though. The helmet he has on looks really good. And to top it off, it was very well painted. I also like the scowl he's spotting. The body used is a repaint of Taskmaster. So is the cape. The right leg is slightly longer than his left hence he leans to the left. I love the colours he's got. The armour on his arms and legs are shiny silver and they go very well with his dark blue tunic, gloves and boots. The red emblem and linings of his attire were very well painted on. 

He comes with a sword and sheath. The sword is one of the softest accessories I've felt. It bends very easily. A good thing about it's flexibility is that we can pose him drawing his sword easily. On the downside he'll be holding a warped sword. The sheath can be removed from his belt.

He deserves a better weapon so I had him try out Excalibur. And also Red Guardian's shield. He looks good with them.  

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, forearm swivel, torso pivot, ball hips, double jointed knees, calf hinge and ankle hinge.

There must be a winged horse for 3.75" scale figures out there. In the mean time he can borrow a horse form Indy. It's a little small but it's passable. 

Comparison shots.

This is a very nice figure. Chalk up another member of the Avengers. Thanks for viewing!

You always do the best reviews for Mu's. Wish I got them down here in Mexico.

His helmet is what makes this figure really cool
