Marvel Legends - ELSA BLOODSTONE!

Marvel Legends - TRU Exc A-Force 6-Pack - Elsa Bloodstone - Hasbro 2017

Elsa Bloodstone has really surprised me by being one of my favorites of the A-Force boxset. When I first saw this solicitation I had no clue who she was.. or rather I couldn't remember who she was. I had read Nextwave when it first came out, but these figures inspired me to go out and buy the trade to read it all again. It is such a good series. If you haven't read it, imagine a cast of Marvel's lesser-known hero going on clandestine missions in a story steeped in Deadpool-esque humor. It's written and drawn very well and the 12-issue run is kind of a perfect length. Someone at Hasbro must love this series because so far we've received Monica Rambeau, Elsa Bloodstone, and Dirk Anger in the Nextwave outfits. Plus an unexpected Machine Man (albeit in his classic comic look). Elsa is a monster hunter with a Van-Helsing-ish family legacy. I thought the solicit images of this figure looked really boring, but in person she is pretty striking. Her red hair, olive complexion, and orange bodysuit really work well together. Let's check her out!

The direct side view gets a little wonky when you realize the rear of her skull isn't supported by her neck too well.

Elsa comes with two rifles and a pistol.

Time for some Group and Comparison pics!

Here she is with the rest of the A-Force box set: Monica Rambeau, Elsa Bloodstone, She-Hulk, Singularity, Sif, and Loki.

  1. Elsa is the best! Her colour and face sculpt are fantastic. I'm surprised how many re-used parts she is, but she totally works. It's also nice to see her popping up in books, games and now figure. It makes me wonder if she'll be popping up in the MCU soon…

    I'm also kinda shocked Boom Boom isn't in that upcoming Deadpool wave, I figure she'd be a perfect shoe-in swap with Domino.
