Marvel Legends Infinite Series Magneto

Enter Magneto.

Magneto is part of the Toys 'R Us exclusive Marvel Legends X-men Jubilee BAF wave. I hate store exclusives as they are difficult to get over here and I end up having to pay more. Anyway, this is the second Marvel Legends Magneto in his classic costume that we've got.  He's got a pretty good head sculpt. He's showing his age with the white eyebrows and the slightly droopy cheeks. He also has a tired expression on his face. The eyes were not well painted but they are passable. From it's shape the helmet looks to be very tight fitting. Unfortunately it's not removable.  The body reuses the SHIELD Agent's body with new forearms and boots. I think it suits him fine. I don't like him overly muscular like the way he's sometimes drawn in the comics. There's some black shading on the body. There's too much of it on the torso of my figure.  I like the shape of the cape. It's very nicely sculpted. It's too big though and it hinders arm articulation. He cannot raise his arms fully. The length and stiffness of the cape also prevents him from doing some poses. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, forearm swivel, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hinge hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. 

Comparison shots. This beats the Toy Biz "monkey arms" Magneto.

I quite like the figure. I would have loved if he had a meaner facial expression and his helmet were removable. Thanks for viewing!
