Marvel Legends Series D'Spayre

Despair! For D'Spayre is here.....  

A quick look at the body first. It reuses the Sunfire body. It is black throughout. The forearms are white with black paint applied for the flame like pattern.

The cape is what makes the figure. I love look of it. It's torn, tattered and has numerous holes in it. The inside of the cape is textured. You can get a better look at that a little further down. The outside is clean and has a smooth appearance which doesn't quite fit the overall look. Perhaps some black wash will help. There's a bird like clasp on the front. The cape may cause him to fall backwards. In my case it's more likely due to his weak, rubbery knees.     

The head sculpt is nice. There's quite a bit of sculpted detail. A lot of the facial features is covered up by the white paint. Some dark wash will help bring out the detail. I like how his mouth turned out, with the tissue connecting the top and bottom lips. It's really creepy.  

Just to show that the lines on his head run right up to the top.

Accessories. He comes with his cape and an extra set of open hands. Check out the textured detail on the inside of the cape. Very nice! The BAF part is the right leg of Rintrah.

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, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. With the cape on he cannot look up as much. He also cannot raise his arms up fully. He suffers from weak knees and can only just barely hold a running pose.

Comparison shots.

D'Spayre is a nice figure. He's not really a wanted character for me but any villain is a welcome addition. I like the cape! Thanks for viewing!

Hey bro, are you going to review The Eternals Wave?

Hi, it's very unlikely I'll review that. I actually don't have them yet. Still waiting for them to go on sale.
