Marvel Toybox - SCARLET WITCH!

Toybox - Marvel Series #29 Scarlet Witch & Vision - Disney Store Exc - 2021

Of course the first WandaVision products on the shelves would be a Disney Store exclusive. This time last year I never would have predicted Wanda's popularity. As a comic reader, I've always knew she was an incredibly interesting and powerful character, but I also knew her MCU representation was just.. meek. Luckily WandaVision came out of nowhere and raised her profile in the biggest way. Now we can begin seeing a new female character integrated into all the random MCU merchandise. Up till now Black Widow and Captain Marvel have carried the weight of female representation, and I'm excited to get someone new in the mix. Especially with a character that's so costumed and toyetic. I was so relieved in the final episode when she finally donned a costume that was a creative mix of comic and MCU style. And predictably within a few days there was a slew of product reveals featuring the new design. Of course Disney had to have the first on the shelves. Let's check out Wanda below!

Wanda's cape is removable. She has no other accessories.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Wanda with her pack-mate Vision. I read a lot of jokes about him looking like a repainted Buzz Lightyear. Out of curiosity I compared images and there are no shared parts. The hands look similar, but are different.

And here is Wanda with the other Marvel Toybox ladies so far: Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Scarlet Widow, Ghost-Spider, and Wasp.
