Marvel Avengers Infinite Series 3.75" Beast & Grey Beast

Blue Beast or grey? I think the answer is pretty obvious.

If you don't already own the Toy Biz Super Hero Showdown (SHS) version, this figure of Beast in his classic look is the next best thing in the 3.75" scale. He'll help complete various Avengers and X-men rosters. Beast has got a great head sculpt. I like his shouting expression. It gives him a fiercer look. A close inspection of his mouth and you can see his canine teeth. They sculpted his pointy ears well and his hair has good detail. I like that his hair is long. It's more modern and I prefer it over the "devil horns" look. His hair is actually dark blue in some sections and black in other areas. You may not be able to differentiate it in the pics. He's on an all new body. I like the bulk of it. There's great fur detail all over. It could use some black wash though. He's a little too clean. The arms are too short, a little undersized too. His belt was well painted on.

When Beast first transformed and grew fur, he was grey in colour. This next figure is based on that appearance. He shares the same body as his blue counterpart with a different head sculpt. They captured his early look really well. He certainly looks primitive here. He kinda looks like a grey Hulk to me. He wears light blue trunks and no belt.

Both figures have the same articulation. There's a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivots. He could really use some waist rotation at least.

Comparison shots.

It'll still be the SHS Beast for me. We can probably do without the grey version. I doubt I'll display him. Thanks for viewing!

It's funny-- I like the head of the Marvel Infinite version and the body of the Showdown version. (The less said about "Cat Beast", the better.)

Great pics as always! Now I REALLY want to find these at retail! After all, my Wonder Man figure needs someone to hang out with!
