Marvel Legends Series Spider-man: Far From Home Mysterio

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Spider-man: Far From Home Mysterio.

Mysterio, is he a friend or foe? I'll say foe. They've already mislead us with the Skrulls in Captain Marvel. I'm thinking they'll do the same in Far From Home. Besides Mysterio is all about deception. In any case it's great to see a new Spidey "villain" on the big screen. 

The figure looks awesome! I'm loving the amount of sculpted detail on his suit. Check it out. The green areas and the gauntlets are textured. The armoured torso has a nice design to it. I especially like the wrinkles on his boots. They look well worn and comfy. For some reason I feel like getting a pair even though I'm unlikely to use them. The helmet has a good shape to it. It has a pearlescent appearance with a purplish tint. There's no unmasked head underneath unfortunately. Or any proper head for that matter. The helmet pegs directly onto the neck joint. The cape has a nice flowy look to it. I like the "eye" symbols of the clips on the front. On the back there's a printed on metallic green design of what looks to be Mayan or Inca design and buildings. The designs while interesting are rather distracting. I would have preferred if he had a plain coloured cape.       

The inside of the cape has some sculpted detail as well. There are several raised green diamond shaped thingys. Some sort of tech perhaps. 

And here's how he looks without the cape. Hmmm... this might be a potential troop builder. Just need to change the colour of the "belt".  

Mysterio does not come with a proper head so I tried some on. The bearded Peter Parker head was the closest I could think of in terms of look and hair colour. I know there's little likeness but I think it looks pretty good.

You can use the skull head from the comic Mysterio figure if you like.

Accessories. Mysterio comes with an extra pair of fists. It would have been nice if they could have included some effects pieces. The BAF part is the left leg of Molten Man.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. He is able to look up and down a bit. The elbows have excellent bend. The forearms are able to reach his biceps. Not that we need them too. He's still human and not a Transformer. With the torso joint he can only bend forward a little. He is able to bend back more.    

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Thanks for viewing!

Your photos are always amazing, but this time you outdid yourself! A reference to ASM #142, and the crystal ball at the end! Wonderful work!
