I absolutely love this figure. Carol Danvers has always been a hit-or-miss character for me. There are times when I adore her, there are times when I find her annoying. Same goes for her costume. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. Her current incarnation as Captain Marvel, though, is all love. The fact that she's in a full body suit with no bared midriff or awkward thongs, yet is more appealing than ever, speaks volumes. Her hair is awesome too. Cool modern hairstyles are really underrepresented in female heroes, let alone in toys of them. Marvel Legends is set to have one of those most amazing years for female figures ever, and this Captain Marvel is an awesome way to start. Carol shares the "Maidens of Might" slot in this wave with Scarlet Witch. Each of the two comes with variant Odin heads, capes, and weapons as BAF accessories which make them both very sought-after figures. Kudos to Hasbro for this figure and this entire year's lineup. Let's check her out below!
Her body buck is fantastic. This same mold was used for Moonstone and Ms. Marvel. In my mind, it's tied with the Mattel MOTU female buck as my favorite of all time.
This figure is almost perfection. She does unfortunately have some paint flaws. Mine has blue patches throwing through the yellow of her star emblem and the red of her shoulders.
Captain Marvel comes with an alternate masked head and an energy blast. The energy blast is made of a soft flexible plastic that easily fits over either of her hands.
I love love love the masked head. This costume design is incredibly cool
Here are some images of Captain Marvel from the comics.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with her slot-mate Scarlet Witch.
And here she is with the Target exclusive Ms. Marvel from this past Fall.
