Marvel Legends - LADY LOKI!

Marvel Legends - TRU Exclusive A-Force 6-Pack - Lady Loki - Hasbro 2017

I've come to the last of the A-Force reviews. This group is kind of unprecedented so I've been taking it slow. We all see female Legends figures sitting unsold in stores, and every time I see three Beetles collecting dust on a peg I fear that it will not bode well on the future of female characters in the line. But then Hasbro assuaged my fears and made this amazing all-female exclusive. It's a wonderful set, but Lady Loki is probably the figure with the most glaring issues of the group. Her accessories make her bulky and clumsy to pose and her hands are humorously unproportional. But even with those detractors, I can't deny that she is still a really great looking figure. Her headsculpt is gorgeous, the paint apps are very detailed (the metallic green scallops look great), and the overall look seems very complete. I don't think anyone expected Lady Loki to ever get a toy, especially considering she was overshadowed by the more popular kid-Loki successor. But I'm not complaining one bit. Let's check out Loki below!

When in a regular standing pose, this waistpiece and cape kind of force her into an awkward hunched posture. It doesn't help that her head want to always look skyward as well. Luckily you can get her into some cool poses despite these limitations.

Good Lord those hands! I haven't seen a mis-matched hand like that since the Sue Storm 2-Pack.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the entire A-Force boxet set together: Monica Rambeau, Elsa Bloodstone, She-Hulk, Singularity, Sif, and Loki.

And a collection of  Asgardian Ladies: Hela, Valkyrie, Sif, Thor, Loki, Angela, and Enchantress.

  1. I had the same thought about the hands, and it's got to be something to do with the coloring. She's clearly on the Moonstone body, like Satana and Jessica Drew who both have the same hands too and it doesn't look so disproportionate on them
