Infinity War Basic - SCARLET WITCH!

Avengers: Infinity War - Basic Series 02 - Scarlet Witch - Hasbro 2018

This Scarlet Witch figure from the Avengers Infinity War Basic Series is one of the nicest budget figures I've ever purchased. Sure, the leg articulation is basically non-existent, but the overall sculpt and the upper-body poseability is terrific. The face paint in the Hasbro basic lines has been very inconsistent. I usually feel a desire to touch up a part of the face to augment to company's obvious cost-cutting methods. But this Scarlet Witch has a great paintjob. In comparison to the Gamora released in the same wave, Wanda has a perfect simple face (complete with irises!)  I'm hoping we'll see a lot more basic figures in the future. I'm thinking Wasp, Captain Marvel, Nebula, and Mantis are the most likely next candidates, but only time will tell. The Shuri figure from Black Panther was a big surprise, so who knows what other unpredictable characters will be thrown into the mix. I only hope that they all share the Scarlet Witch's same balance of budget constraint and detail. Let's check out Wanda in detail below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her recent Marvel Legends counterpart.

Here are the three Infinity War Basic ladies: Gamora, Scarlet Witch, and Black Widow.

And with the Black Panther Shuri to complete the MCU ladies so far.
