Marvel Legends Civil War - SCARLET WITCH!

Marvel Legends: Civil War (Abomination Series) - Scarlet Witch - Hasbro 2016

I'm really glad Hasbro waited until Captain America: Civil War to give us a Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch. Her outfit isn't drastically changed in concept, but the longer waistcoat and leather pants looks a thousand times better than the Avengers: Age of Ultron jacket, skirt, and thigh-high look. This version is much more "costumey" while still consisting of relatively standard civilian clothes. An Age of Ultron version would look more like a Gilmore Girl than a superhero. This action figure is stunning. Although I love the Scarlet Witch in comics, I thought her presence in the movies has been a bit forgettable. And the costume was pretty unexciting. I was really planning to pass on this figure, especially when she became so notoriously difficult to find in stores, but then I randomly saw her at a Barnes & Noble a couple weeks ago and was very impressed by her. The sculpt and paint is perfect. Hasbro has been really great at nailing actor likenesses recently. Let's check out Scarlet Witch below!

I wish Mattel could pull off this kind of execution with their BvS and Suicide Squad figures. Imagine if the Multiverse Harley/Margot Robbie looked even half as good as this Scarlet Witch/Elizabeth Olsen.

Wanda comes with two energy accessories. They are a little disappointing because they don't look that dynamic when on her hands. I would have preferred something a little more like the big hex flares that came with the comic version.

She also comes with the head of the Abomination build-a-figure.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Age of Ultron 3.75" figure.

And here she is with two other Marvel movie ladies: Black Widow and Maria Hill.
