Marvel Legends Series 6" Beetle (Superior Foes of Spider-Man)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Series 6" Beetle.

Like Speed Demon I'm not familiar with this version of the Beetle. So after reading up a bit I found out her name is Janice Lincoln and that she's daughter of Tombstone! I like to see Tombstone someday as a Marvel Legends figure. With some of the mobsters having made an appearance I don't see why not. Back to Janice. She's also a member of Boomerang's Sinister Six and featured in the Superior Foes of Spider-man series. The figure is similar to the Wasp. The torso is different. Beetle's has some sculpted detail on her costume and the bottom of her purple "swimsuit" is raised up. You can make out the seams on her costume and there are clasps on the straps. The purple areas have a metallic shine to them. The head sculpt is nice. She wears a mask similar to the classic Beetle's. Her yellow eyes stand out well. The wings are the same as the Wasp and peg in on her back. The bigger pair of wings peg has swivel and hinge articulation while the smaller pair which pegs onto the larger pair only has swivel.

She does not come with any accessories. The BAF piece she comes with is Absorbing Man's right leg.

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. I would have liked if she were able to look up more. 

Comparison shots.

This Beetle is a nice figure. I hope to see the original Beetle someday. Thanks for viewing!

Marvel didn't want to leave very much to the imagination that this is a lady villain, did they? Cool pic though.
