Marvel Legends - ENCHANTRESS!

Marvel Legends - The Raft SDCC Exclusive Box Set - Hasbro 2016

This figure is a very bittersweet one for me. I have had a longstanding obsession with Enchantress. The first time I encountered her was in the New Mutants Special #1 from 1985. This story was part of the Asgardian Wars storyline and featured all the young mutants getting scattered and stranded on Asgard with Enchantress being their main adversary on these adventures. I don't think I've read a single comic issue more times in all my life. So with all that longstanding adoration of Amora, I was really excited to see her in Legends form. It wasn't the first time that I splurged for an expensive SDCC exclusive while only intending to keep one figure. I'm ususally happy to do it because I can sell the others without much hassle. But this year, a mere two days after I got my Raft set in the mail, Hasbro announced that she will be a part of the Doctor Strange wave due out in September. I'm trying to balance the feelings of betrayal versus my joy over this figure. It's quite the existential crisis for me. Sigh.






The Raft set came with Abomination, Enchantress, Dreadknight, Spider-Man, Purple Man, and Sandman.






















Enchantress' accessories are green versions of Scarlet Witch's hex powers.












The mass retail version will have a slight redeco (yellow belt, less metallic details, etc), but it's essentially a much more affordable re-release. 






















Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with her Marvel Universe and Superhero Squad figures.




And with two fellow Asgardian ladies, Valkyrie and Hela.






Cheers!
