Marvel Legends Series Blue Marvel (Controller BAF)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Blue Marvel.

Blue Marvel is a character I'm not too familiar with. From what I gather he's a smart and powerful individual. His main ability is anti-matter manipulation. From there there's various things he can do. He also has superhuman strength. He's able to beat the likes of Hulk, Thor and Sentry. Now that's very powerful!

Blue Marvel's costume is based from the time he was with the Ultimates. The Ultimates was a team led by Captain Marvel. It's not to be confused with Ultimate Marvel Universe. His costume is mainly blue in colour with some white deco. The gloves were painted on. The paint apps were done very well. The body reuses that of Spider-UK with boots. His vest and belt are separate pieces. The vest is short and looks small on him. It should reach his waist at least. There's great detail for the vest. It's got the thick collar like it's supposed to have. It's textured and you can make out the seams and stitching. I like the M shaped belt buckle.   

 He's got a great head sculpt. He's supposed to be an older person and it shows. He's got quite a bit of wrinkles on his face. They could have made his age more obvious by painting some grey at the side of his head which he's supposed to have but they did not. It's a glaring omission. There's good detail for his short hair. His left eye was painted too much towards the right. It's annoying.     

The vest is removable. Here's how he looks without it. I quite like this look better.  

Accessories. He comes with an extra set of open hands and two effect pieces. The included BAF part is the left leg of Controller.

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, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shots. Blue Marvel is supposed to be 6'4", which makes him taller than Sentry. So the figure's height is off. I'm not sure how bulky he's supposed to be.

Blue Marvel is a decent figure for me. His size is off. He's lacking some grey hair and needs a larger vest. Thanks for viewing!
