Apex Legends - WRAITH!

Apex Legends: Season 1 - 6" Action Figures - Wraith - Jakks Pacific 2020

It's amazing how all the random videogame toys these days are of such high quality. I remember when these would be cheap merchandising grabs and the figures would only ever caught my attention when they employed almost fascinatingly retro construction techniques. Not out of nostalgia, but out of speed and cost. But in the last decade, the quality is usually on par with Marvel Legends or DC Multiverse. This Wraith figure from the new Apex Legends line is a prime example. These characters look amazing, the packaging is crisp, and the product placement is ideal (right next to Marvel Legends in Walmart). Apex Legends is a 2019 first-person shooter battle royale game and Wraith is one of the many playable characters (Legends) in it. Her unique powers deal with controlling inter-dimensional rifts - whether small like dodging attacks or big like teleporting a whole squad. It's a shame she didn't come with any power effects, but she's a gorgeous figure either way. Let's check out Wraith below!
























Wraith's articulation is pretty great. She has a ball-jointed head, hinge-and-swivel shoulders, upper arm swivels, double-jointed elbows, hinge-and-swivel wrists, a swivel waist, hinge-and-swivel hips, swivel upper thighs, double-hinge knees, swivel ankles, and hinge toes. I count 26 points of articulation. It's a shame she doesn't have hinge ankles. and the range of motion of her shoulders is limited (she can't put her arms straight down). But overall this is very impressive.





Wraith comes with three guns. Again, it's such a shame she doesn't have any of the blue electricity effects that indicate her rift power. She doesn't have any functional holsters, but she does have a black peg sticking out of her tattered cape that can fit through the trigger loop of the guns.































Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!








Cheers!

  1. Cool figure. Saw this the other day but wasn't sure about the background story. May have to snag this one.

  2. I can’t believe how many cool female figures fly under my radar these days. Just ordered her from Amazon after reading your review.
