Marvel Legends - SCREAM!

Venom Legends: Wave 1 (Monster Venom BAF) - Scream - Hasbro 2018

I'm really obsessed with this new Marvel Legends Scream figure. My infatuation is likely due to the fact that I just spent weeks frantically hunting her down... and she'll now circumstantially have the rank of "Newest Marvel Legends" in my collection until sometime in 2019. But regardless of that, she is legitimately a great action figure. The yellow and maroon color scheme contrasts very interestingly with my other Spider-ladies and it's nice to get a villain in the group. With all the potential female characters that still need inclusion in the line (Julia Carpenter anyone?), Scream seemed like quite a random choice. Of course, since her first reveal, we've learned that she will be a character in the Venom movie played by Michelle Lee. Hasbro never seems to miss an opportunity to sync-up their character selections to the newest movie tie-ins. Of course having just one female symbiote won't do. I think we need an Agony, Mania, and Bride of Venom at the very least. Let's check out the Marvel Legends Scream below!

I think it's interesting that the splotchy maroon pattern on her symbiote form isn't really visible from the back or sides. As far as I can tell, this wasn't exactly the way she looked in the comics. Seems like a creative choice by Hasbro.

Scream comes with the Right Arm Build-a-Figure piece for Monster Venom.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the '96 Toy Biz Scream with the '18 Hasbro Scream.

And here she is with her wave-mate, Typhoid Mary.
