Quick set today for a wave of Marvel Legends! The Disney+ Wave featured a solid line up of MCU characters all from the first wave of shows – Wandavision, Falcon and Winter Soldier and Loki. The Build a Figure wasn’t actually a figure, but the wings needed to get Sam Wilson Captain America in full flight mode with his upgraded Falcon gear. I’ve moved to grabbing key pieces for Marvel and then shooting them for the site even less, just keeping them on shelf for self. But this wave was solid front to back and I wanted dem wings, so a full wave and shoot it is!
We’ve done up over 55 HD shots after the break, read on to check them out along with some quick thoughts. These come courtesy of Dorkside Toys, check them out for all your Marvel Legends needs!
Captain America (Sam Wilson) – I dug the suit in the show, and this is a perfect way to rep that on the shelves. There will always be versions that do things better here and there, but this does it for me. 2 gripes – the Redwing attachment never stays inserted. If you do manage to get it in, look at it wrong and it’s falling out. Second, putting the back attached shield with another figure (that I don’t want) stinks.
Winter Soldier – Solid, a bit boring. But nails the show look as needed. Head sculpt and digi paint well done.
Baron Zemo – Solid, a bit boring. I sense a trend. Masked up is my preference.
U.S. Agent – Cool, but the inevitable re-release with a shield will make this one obsolete down the road. It is sharp in hand, the sculpt and paint pop together. That pistol does not come out of the holster either. :/
Loki – Solid, a bit boring. :). All of these are nailing the looks from show, which work in the show, but as a figure they don’t really do it. I don’t need Office Space Loki rocking out on the shelf, personally, but if you dig it – well done. Face/ paint is a great likeness.
Scarlet Witch – In promo pics I thought they dropped the ball on the face, but in hand it’s legit. Outfit pops with a rich red, just a good figure, glad she’s finally suited up.
White Vision – This is the Vision body we’ve got several times already. It’s ok, and I think it works better here in all white. Almost like a prototype (toy). The yellow bits are a bit much, would have preferred that to be more muted.
That’s about it. This was a quick round of shots and I went all in mostly for that wing set. There was no filler here tho, for MCU and D+ collectors, everything is a worthy add to the shelves.
