Marvel Legends - SCARLET WITCH!

X-Men Legends - Family Matters 3-Pack - Amazon Exclusive - Hasbro 2019

I wasn't sure that I was going to like this updated Scarlet Witch figure. In the solicit images, it looked like her headsculpt was very different from existing Marvel Legends. It looks good, but almost as if they have a new sculpting team or maybe they're doing face scans of live (non-celebrity) models. If you compare her other comic-based Legends in the past five years, she just looks different. Also, her outfit looked metallic - which is a toy trend I really don't care for. But in actuality her outfit is a pearlescent plastic (like Moonstone) and her head looks so good that I don't care if she doesn't blend in. In fact, this figure reminds me so much of my favorite Wanda storylines from Young Avengers that it's reinvigorating my desire for updated figures from that team. Also, the fact that we got an updated figure within 4 years gives me hope that we might also get a redo of her sister Polaris (which I never thought was quite right). I'm not holding my breath, but I have a glimmer of hope now. Let's check out the new Wanda below!

The facepaint, hairsculpt, matte skin texture, crisp lines in her headpiece, and the overall look are teriffic. The cape is great too (although it's re-used from her 2015 version).

Scarlet Witch comes with two small hex power effects (the same ones we saw with the TRU Infinity War Scarlet Witch last year). I think these are a little dinky and small. Although they might be fun to give to Jubilee (who was inexplicably without any power accessories).

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Scarlet Witch with the other 3-pack members: her brother Quicksilver and her father Magneto.

And with her sister, Polaris.

And here is Wanda's Journey in the Marvel Legends line.
