Apex Legends - LOBA!

Apex Legends - 6" Action Figures Wave 5 - 13 Loba - Jakks Pacific 2022

Once again I have purchased a figure that I know nothing about, but love her design. Apex Legends is a battle royale video game introduced in 2019 where you form squads from existing characters and compete in both open world and arena battle. If builds off the popular Titanfall universe from 2014 so the game began with a built-in fanbase. From what I gather, Loba is a very popular character in the game. I've bet two young players in the last year who said Loba in their favorite character to play. She is known as a "Translocating Thief" meaning she can teleport short distances and is adept as stealing weapons and treasure. she also has the ability to see loot through walls. I personally and drawn to her for her costume. It is an interesting blend of saloon girl, ringmaster, and warrior. Her braided hair and facepaint adds a certain toughness to her overall look as well. Plus her name literally means She-Wolf which is awesome. The Apex line from Jakks continues to impress. Let's check out Loba below!

























Loba comes with her wolf staff, a handgun, and a figure stand.





The articulation in this line is unique. Most of the body has standard modern articulation that would would expect. But the ankles are just swivels paired with toe-hinges. This limits most action poses and seems like an odd engineering choice.








I love the wolf staff.































Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here is Loba with the first two Apex Legends ladies: Wraith and Voidwalker Wraith.






Cheers!

  1. She's quite interesting. I grabbed Caustic a month or two ago to add him to my G.I. Joe Classified Series collection and I'm now keeping an eye on other available Apex Legends figures I can work in.
