3.75" Marvel Legends - LADY THOR!

Marvel Legends 3.75" Series - Defenders of Asgard Comic 2-Pack - Hasbro 2016

Sorry for the lack of posts. I came down with a late-in-the-season cold and couldn't bring myself to turn on my computer. Feeling much better now and I have so many fun things to post. Last year I swore I was going to give up of the Marvel Universe scale figures from Hasbro. My previous purchases were lackluster and then the final few figures I was interested in (Shanna the She-Devil and Emma Frost) were hard to find and overpriced when you did find them. Then they had to go and relaunch the line under the "Marvel Legends" brand and introduce figures of two of my favorite modern heroes (Thor and Captain Marvel). They both look great so I'm back on the bandwagon for now.  The new female Thor is the first character in a while that was so steeped in mystery. Her identity was unknown to the readers until issue 8. I found that a thrilling story element. This action figure is pretty amazing and is honestly my favorite 3.75" Marvel figure in my collection. Let's check out Lady Thor in detail below!

















I think one of the reasons I like the sculpt so much is because the helmet eliminates distracting (and often sloppy) paint details. Weird eyes plague figures of this scale, but this figure looks great.




























Her cape is pretty rigid and actually supports her in a number of poses.  If it were softer it would only make her topple over.










Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with her Minimate and Funko Pop.




And with her packmate, Odinson.




And finally with an assortment of Asgardian ladies: Enchantress, Sif, Lady Thor, and Valkyrie.




Cheers!

  1. Nice! Odinson looks good too- I heard this was perhaps the end of 6" Legends, dunno if that's true or not...

    1. I kind of doubt that they'd get rid of the 6" scale. Especially with so many upcoming figures. And the success and abundance of the past few years. I've never seen so many Legends figures in the toy aisles.

      Odinson's smirk is very amusing. I don't think we've ever seen a figure of him doing anything but grimacing.

  2. Gonna need this figure for customizing fodder. A shame they couldn't keep the swivel wrists that the She-Hulk and Valkyrie had.

    1. True. I would much rather have a wrist joint than a double-jointed elbow or knee. Who are you going to customize her into?

    2. Into a made up non-Marvel Fantasy figure, possibly a redo of the tall warrior I made from a She-Hulk here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/65119466@N04/14864351522/in/album-72157632580123305/ w.i.p pic here: http://thesmugglingcove.blogspot.co.nz/2014/01/some-wips-and-glory-of-tmnt-pizza-box.html

    3. Very cool stuff! I just recently started two large-scale customizing projects of my own (that I probably won't be ready to post for years). Each project involves many figures so it's kind of daunting. I spent an evening dremmeling details off of action figures the other night and it was extremely gratifying.

    4. Having just got her in hand, I might keep the figure as is and maybe a second one later if I can get for cheap.

      Not a bad figure, though the cape might need a soft goods replacement.

    1. No, the helmet is part of the head sculpt and cannot be removed. Thanks!
