Marvel Legends Series Quasar

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Quasar.

Is this really Quasar? Are we sure he's not Robert Redford? Or Fred Jones (Scooby Doo)? Those were my initial thoughts when I got the figure. Seriously though I think he has a good head sculpt. They certainly nailed his youthful appearance. He has a pleasant look about him. His blue eyes stand out really well. The hair turned out great as well. I like that they did some shading in it. Quasar has worn several costumes. The one the figure has on is probably my favourite. I'm happy that Hasbro picked this to be released. I wouldn't mind his modern black costume either. The body largely reuses the Bucky Cap body with new pinless arms and a set of larger feet. The changes are an improvement, especially the feet. The Quantum Bands are separate pieces and are removable. The design was sculpted and the gold paint on it is decent.  

Check out his guns.  

The cape is a thing of beauty. Loving the stars, diamonds and sparklies on the inside. They were very well done. The logo on the front was also well done. There's white within the yellow which makes it look like it's actually shining. Nice!

His look without the cape is very familiar. I can't place which character wore this. Flash Gordon? In any case this would make a great base body for customs.

Accessories. He comes with a set of open flying hands and a pair of energy effect pieces which we've seen before.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He can look down well. He can only look up just a little. His hair and the cape restricts him from looking up more. I would have loved if he were able to so he can pull off flying poses better.  

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Thanks for viewing!
