Hasbro Figure Review – Star Wars and Marvel Legends Releases

The past week has been quite reveal heavy from the folks at Hasbro, with new Star Wars and Marvel releases aplenty. So let’s dive in and see what’s on the horizon.


STAR WARS


Star Wars The Vintage Collection Din Djarin (Morak)

(£16.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: To start us off, let’s take a look at a figure from the vintage collection. This figure is based on Din’s disguise from episode 7. He is really accurate, featuring great painting and sculpting. The removable helmet is also appreciated and the blaster is nice, if a bit generic. I would’ve really liked a lunch tray to compete the scene, but this is a solid figure overall.


Star Wars The Black Series Dark Trooper

(£36.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This figure on the other hand, is amazing, providing the perfect plastic representation of a Dark Trooper to the Black Series scale. The detail is superb and the poseability is stunning. It’s really dynamic and the included weapons and blast effects just make it that much better. An incredible figure that you would not feel shame in buying masses of.


MARVEL LEGENDS


Marvel Legends Series Sabertooth

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This figure is pretty good, with all the necessary painting and sculpting really capturing the character. I do wish he had more bulk though. The poseability seems really on point too, which helps. I do wish that he had alternate claws and an angry head, but the included build-a-figure (Bonebreaker) tank parts make for some lovely display options. A decent figure.


Marvel Legends Series Darwin

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Darwin is a character I hadn’t heard of before writing this, but honestly, I’m sold on this figure alone. He’s impressively accurate, featuring all the necessary details. His articulation seems a bit above average and his design allows for more range. As for accessories, you get extra hands, which are always appreciated, and half of Bonebreaker’s tank, which can be used as an extra display option for dioramas. Overall, this is another really good figure.


Marvel Legends Series Vulcan

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Vulcan features all the painting and sculpting we’ve come to expect from Marvel Legends figures and, once again, captures his design perfectly. The articulation is also great. As for accessories, you get alternate hands (yay!), Bonebreaker’s hands and alternate hands (if you want to give Vulcan green gloves, that’s an option), and, lastly, Bonebreaker’s body, which embodies (pun intended) my biggest problem with build-a-figures.  Namely, useless parts that clog up the price.


Marvel Legends Series Maggot

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Maggot is next on the list, featuring great paintwork, picking out his shoulder pads and other details, and the expression is characterfully manic. The articulation seems decent, but the shoulder pads may restrict movement. The maggots are nice but seem pre-posed, which is unfortunate but acceptable for the price,. You also get Bonebreaker’s gun and head; the gun allows extra display options, and my issues with the head are consistent with my issues with build-a-figures (see above). Overall, pretty great.


Marvel Legends Series Havoc

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

[Click to Enlarge]

VERDICT: As for Havoc, this is amazing. All the painting and sculpting perfectly captures the character. The articulation also seems to allow for some truly dynamic poses. The accessories are really where this thrives though, featuring all the magic effects you could ask for on a figure this price, and the two included oil barrels as extra display options. This is an amazing figure.


Marvel Legends Series Syrin

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

[Click to Enlarge]

VERDICT: Syrin is another X-Men character I have never heard of, but, from what I can tell, she looks great, and really accurate. All the detail really captures the character, and once again, the poseability is on point. The soft fabric cloak also works well with this figure and really kicks up potential for dynamic poses, and the alternate hands help add some variety. She also comes with half of Bonebreaker’s tank, which helps this fill its value, even if alternate heads and hands would’ve been appreciated more.


Marvel Legends Series Wolverine

(£23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Finally, Wolverine is probably my favourite of the latest Marvel Legends reveals. The painting and sculpture here is nothing short of incredible, and the poseability can allow for some iconic poses. He has an alternate maskless head that allows for extra display options but alternate clawless hands would’ve been so appreciated. This figure is the highlight of a really impressive release slate. Plus, with all the X-Men reveals… HasLab X-Mansion anyone?
