Marvel Legends Series Controller BAF

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Controller BAF.

First the parts list: 

Controller is mainly an Iron Man villain who well... controls people. He actually needs to do it order to power his suit which unfortunately he is bonded to. He controls people using "slave discs". There are two sculpted in his right hand which you can see later.      

I initially thought Controller directly reuses the deluxe Thanos body. I thought wrong. The torso is different. Controller's is just a plain torso without the straps. The gloves and boots are also different. As is the belt which is a separate piece pegged in at the waist. What is reused are the collar piece, arms, upper legs and crotch piece. Controller has a lighter blue tone applied at his upper torso, upper arms and thigh areas. I guess they were trying for some comic style shading. It brightens up the figure I must say. 

He's got a great head sculpt. I especially like the scarring on his face. And I like that they did some shading on it to bring out the detail. He looks menacing. His eyes are all white. They applied some pink just underneath his eyes and gave him dark circles. Very nice! One minor gripe is that I feel that his head is a little small.  

Here are the "slave discs" sculpted in his right hand. They resemble turbines and are light grey in colour. I would have liked if he came with some loose discs so as to stick them on other figures. Both his gloves are textured at the palm area. You can say he has a good grip of things.

Accessories. He only comes with an extra set of fists.

Articulation. He's got a dumbbell joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Villains are always welcome to the collection. Thanks for viewing!
