Marvel Legends Series Moon Knight (Walgreens Exclusive)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Moon Knight.

(Note that the default hands should be the fists. I forgot to replace them after playing with the figure.)

Now this is the Moon Knight I think most of us want, the white costume classic version. If you prefer him with the "darkened mask" look you have that option as well. The head looks to be the same as the Marvel Now version. The outline for the eyes could be better. My figure has a stray streak at the his right eye which I'm quite annoyed about. He's got a new hood. It's got nice detail on it and also some dark wash. The wash in some areas contrasts a little too much with his off white costume for my liking. The body largely reuses the Bullseye body. The forearms and lower legs are new. The forearm bracers and the leg guards were sculpted. They are pearlescent and have a dirt covered appearance. His belt is a separate piece. It's textured and there are several crescent boomerangs sculpted on it. His cape is the same one as with the previous version.      

Accessories. He comes with an alternate "black masked head", a pair of gripping hands, a staff, two large crescent weapons and three smaller ones. His grip of the large crescent in his right hand is loose. The crescent weapons are the same ones that came with the Marvel NOW version. The staff is the same one as Gambit's. Moon Knight's is white in colour. 

Close-up of the heads. The alternate head is the same as the default head, just that it's black in colour here. His mask is often in the shadow of his hood, hence the "black mask". Actually did he wear a black mask with this costume? I'm not sure. The eyes reflect light. We can get the "eyes only" look.

The fists are the same ones that came with the previous version. They have the sculpted crescent on the back of his hands and the plated knuckles.

There are slots in between the fingers of his fists and the three small crescents may be held there. 

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, butterfly joints, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He cannot look up much due to the hood and cape. He can look down okay. The bracers prevent the full range of the elbows.

Great figure! Thanks for viewing!
