Shang-Chi - XIALING!

Marvel Legends: Shang-Chi Movie - Mr. Hyde Wave - Xialing - Hasbro 2021

It's really difficult to write about a figure from a movie that isn't released yet. But more and more, Hasbro seems to be making movie figures way too far in advance of the theatrical releases and I'm left guessing what these characters are about. And when it comes to supporting characters in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, I'm completely clueless. All I know is the blurb on the packaging that says Xialing is Shang-Chi's estranged sister, who I assume she has some mad martial arts skills. I've been aware of Shang-Chi since my early days of reading comics, but my only real exposure to the character was pretty recently in the pages of Agents of Atlas. And on a side-note, the MCU presence of Jimmy Woo, Ms. Marvel, and now the Master of Kung-Fu makes me think the Agents of Atlas are coming (I really hope I'm right). I even wonder if Xialing might turn out to be Aero (Lei Ling) - the costume is reminiscent. But it's all just speculation until September. Let's check out Xialing below!

Xialing comes with multiple alternate hands and a coiled wushu rope.
I'm excited to see the wushu rope used on screen. I always thought it was a cool weapon.

Xialing comes with the torso of the Mr. Hyde Build-a-Figure.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Xialing with Katy.
