Marvel Universe Omega Red

It's the final wave of Marvel Universe. Here's Omega Red to start things off.

Anyone played X-men: Children of the Atom at the arcade? That's where I first came to know of Omega Red. I liked using him in game. Omega Destroyer was cool, whipping the whole screen with his tentacles. This is a very nice figure of him. He's big and mean. He's got a menacing look on his face. The metal attachments were sculpted on and the eyebrows were well painted. The hair was well done too but it could have used some black wash. The body is the Hercules base body with new forearms, hands and lower legs. The shoulder pads and belt gear is a separate piece. The tentacles are flexible plastic. I would have preferred if flexible wire were used so we can pose them. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, swivel hinge wrists, torso pivot, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He can't look up much due to his hair. And the shoulder pads restrict him from raising his arms fully.

Comparison shots. I like the size of him.

Great figure. X-men beware! Thanks for viewing!
