Hasbro has been doing an awesome job of making first-time Marvel Legends figures of deserving characters lately. Mockingbird has been around for over 40 years but has received very little merchandising. The recent Valkyrie, Medusa, Hela, Gamora, and Hellcat figures are just a few similar characters who are highly recognizable in the Marvel Universe (and who have been around for decades), but always seemed unlikely for Marvel Legends treatment. This is actually kind of bad because now I think that anyone is possible. Maybe a classic Polaris or Firestar will be unveiled next week at Toy Fair. At this rate we're bound to see them eventually. Of course, Mockingbird, Hellcat, and Gamora all have media tie-ins to TV shows and movies now, which is a sure-fire way to get the green light for a Legends figure. Perhaps I need to start bribing TV writers to incorporate my favorite characters into the shows. I need to start scheming. Let's check out the long-awaited Mockingbird below!
So I had to do a minor touch-up on Mockingbird's mask. The white lines along the edge were inconsistent.
Here are three before pictures.
Mockingbird comes with her signature batons that can combine to become a single bo staff.
I think this accessory could be scaled a little smaller. As is, it looks like she's holding sections of PVC pipe. A little thinner and they would look more threatening.
Here is a photo of Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Yes, the same actor cast as Wonder Woman in the ill-fated 2011 show, and Lady Jaye in G.I.Joe: Retaliation. I officially nominate her to be the new Megan Fox.
Time for some Commparison Pics!
Here she is with my only other Mockingbird toy, the 2013 Marvel Universe figure.
