Marvel Legends Series Shriek (Armadillo BAF)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Shriek.

I mentioned in the Morlun post about how there's not many notable Spidey villains left that's yet to be made. Shriek is one that totally slipped my mind. Then there's Carrion, Mr Negative, Spot, Smythe and Tarantula to name a few. The names just started to flow in. I guess I wasn't thinking hard enough... 

I think a number of us will be excited for Shriek. Why's that? It's cause she has double jointed elbows! If I recall correctly this would be the second character after Captain Carter. The elbows are pinless. The legs are pinless as well. I'm not sure if the body is new or re-used. Her costume details were painted on. The paint apps are not great. There's quite a bit of bleeding. She has a torn sleeve on her left arm. Her white skin tone was painted over the black. Her belt and bangle is a separate piece. She has a great head sculpt. The likeness is good. I love the eyes and that smile. Really devilish looking. She's wearing some big earrings. The hair was well done and has good detail in it.        

She wears a bangle on her left hand. It's a separate piece and will drop off easily whenever you swap the hand. Take care not to lose it. 

Here's a couple more shots of her head. The paint apps for her eyes and lips is superb. I love the shade of blue used for her right eye.

Accessories. She comes with a pair of gripping hands and a pair of fists. The included BAF part is the torso and "shell" of Armadillo. 

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, diaphragm joint, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. She can look down well. She cannot look up due to her hair. Head rotation is also hindered by her hair. The elbows and knees have good range. She cannot bend forward. She can bend back and tilt her body quite decently. 

@Tom Boy - You asked about the Kasady head on the Legion body previously. It'll fit. It sits a little high though. But it's workable. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure! I hope Carrion gets released so as to finish Carnage's team. Thanks for viewing!

I know nothing about this character, but she looks amazing.
