Marvel Avengers Infinite Series 3.75" Thunderstrike

The last figure I'll be touching on from this series, Thunderstrike.

Almost a year from the release of the Eric Masterson Thor, we now have Thunderstrike. I didn't think it it would be that fast. He's got a pretty good head sculpt. I would have liked if he had a better expression, he's looking a little haggard. The beard and hair have good detail. The hair has some shading. They totally messed up the ponytail. It's fully flesh coloured. The body is similar to Bishop's with new lower legs. The jacket and boots were very well done. They have great detail, are textured and have shading. Outstanding stuff. The feet are a let down. They are a shiny brown in colour and do not match the upper areas of his boots. The jacket can be removed. The belt too is a separate piece. His wristbands were painted on. The paint apps for the circles on his torso is okay. My figure has a number of chips there. Fortunately most of it is covered by his jacket. 

He comes with his mace Thunderstrike, which he named himself after. There's good detail on the handle and chain. And I like the gun metal paint which they used. 

If you like you can have him carry his mace on his waist simply by inserting the chain into his jacket. It will not fall out.

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge wrists, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. He can only turn his head as much as his jacket allows.

Comparison shots. A tall fellow this one.

Thunderstrike is a good figure. And like most other figures in the series in recent times, he could use more articulation. Thanks for viewing!

If you remove his jacket, he's like a pseudo Ultimates Thor in a ponytail.
