Marvel Legends Series Quake & Maria Hill (Controller BAF)

It's actually one figure but we get the parts to make two characters. 

Quake's name is on the box so we'll take a look at her first. The body reuses the Shriek body with a new upper torso. The zip on the front was sculpted. As were the straps and the connecting plate of the harness. The S.H.I.E.L.D logo was very well painted on her left arm. Quake is able to generate powerful vibrations. She wears gauntlets to help her with that. The gauntlets look thick and have some nice sculpted design on them. They are removable. The belt and leg bands are separate pieces.

She has a nice head sculpt. I like the look. She's got spunk. Her facial features came out well. There's great detail for her short brown hair. It's just the single colour and has no shading in it. 

Accessories. She comes with the head for Maria Hill, a pistol, a set of gripping hands and a set of open hands. The included BAF parts are the left arm and a left fist for Controller.

I'm a little disappointed she does not come with any effect pieces. What we can do is to borrow those from Havok. The fit is very tight though. 

The gauntlets slide off easily. Swap in regular hands and a different head and you'll have a brand new agent.

Here's a quick look at Maria Hill. Same body different head.

Maria Hill has a great head sculpt. I think she has a good likeness. She has quite an intense look about her. She's constantly on the comms and is usually seen wearing a microphone headset like you see on the figure. The open mouth complements it. I can imagine her giving out orders. Her facial features were well done. There's also nice detail for her hair.

I tried out some head swaps. I thought the following look good.

You'll be happy to know that the jetpack that came with the grey costume Black Widow can be equipped. I knew I should have got more of it when I had the chance... any airborne army will have to wait... I also hope Hasbro will make a jetpack for the male agents.

Articulation. Quake/Maria Hill has a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, diaphragm joint, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.

With regards to the wrists. Quake's gauntlet hands are swivel hinge. The right gripping hand has swivel and up and down hinge, and the left gripping hand has swivel hinge. The open hands are swivel hinge.

Comparison shots. The shade of blue is the same as that of the S.H.I.E.L.D Agents from the two-pack. 

Great figure! Will definitely need more. Hopefully Hasbro will release a female S.H.I.E.L.D agent pack. Thanks for viewing!

So where do the white arm parts come from ? Only seeing the white glove hands as accessories.

The quake piece slides on top of the white forearms.

Yup the gauntlet slides off the arm. Thanks Basic for helping to reply!
