Marvel Legends Series 3.75" Triton and Yondu

Closing January with two more Marvel Legends Series 3.75" figures. Here are Triton and Yondu.

The following figure is of Triton in his classic look. I must say he looks pretty good. I quite like the new body he's on. It's well sculpted and the muscles are better defined here. It unfortunately follows the current standard introduced last year. That is there is no torso or waist articulation. The gloves and boots were sculpted. The purple lines at his shoulders and arms were well painted on. The thicker portion of his trunks is a separate piece. The head sculpt is nice. He wears a serious look on his face. The small "fins" above his eyebrows were sculpted and his eyebrows were very well painted. They are not simply straight lines, they branch out at the end. The fin at the top of his head has some nice detail. 

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, ball hips, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Needless to say he could use more points of articulation.

Yondu fairs a bit better than Triton. While he uses the same torso, the legs are from Hawkeye which means there's calf swivel. But then again now there's no ankle pivot so forget the first sentence. He's got a great head sculpt. Initially I thought it might be the same as Triton but it's not. They do look quite alike. The mohawk is nice. There's some paint chipping on mine though. The paint apps are excellent. There's a lot of paint detail on him and I've no complaints about it. The logo on his chest was very well done. The belt is the same one that Ice-man wore. It's just gold in colour here.

Accessories. He comes with a bow, an arrow and a quiver of arrows. They are the same accessories that came with Hawkeye.

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

Comparison shots.

Both figures look good. Unfortunately they have poor articulation. Thanks for viewing!

These don't look bad, but I still can't figure out why Hasbro decided to go with two different scales for their Marvel Legends line... it's not as if they're making vehicles for the little guys or anything.

I agree with Paul-- I wish they'd altered the name of the line slightly. Otherwise, retailers aren't going to know/care about the different in 6" Marvel Legends vs 4" Marvel Legends.

Just something different would have helped.

However, GREAT images as always!
