Marvel Avengers Infinite Series 3.75" Vulture

Flying in next is Vulture.

Vulture was the most wanted figure in this series for me. He's the last member needed to complete the original Sinister Six in the 3.75" scale. I'm happy that it's finally done. Vulture is a pretty simple figure. While I would have liked some line detail this isn't bad. The body is basically Big Time Spider-man's. The arms have slots where you attach the wings. The hands and neck were painted. The collar piece is separate and has some flesh colour shading in it which is nice. He's got a great head sculpt. There's lots of wrinkles on his face, his cheeks are sunken and he's spotting a scowl. His painted eyebrows are quite thick. The eyes were poorly done. They were painted looking upwards and appear bloodshot. 

Some close-ups.

Vulture wouldn't be complete without his wings. The ones he come with are the same type as those of the Marvel Universe Falcon. Vulture's are green and have the "feathers" outline painted in. The black paint is smudged and his wings look dirt covered. The wings are not accurate but they'll do. The back portion shouldn't extend past his shoulders. They look off when he's standing but great in flying poses.

The slots for the wings are on the sides of his arms. This is different from Falcon where the slots are on the back of his arms. You cannot attach the wings with his arms straight. You need to turn his hands inwards first. The wings can stay on well enough. The tough part is trying to pose him without knocking them off.

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shots. 

Good figure. Now enter the Sinister Six! Thanks for viewing!
