In the event that I was a patient man, I’d most likely have been content with my online request for the Marvel Legends Red Onslaught arrangement which was planned to transport in about fourteen days. Be that as it may, I am not, and I was definitely not. Thus I made around like an insane individual for three hours early today lastly hit the big stake, finishing the whole wave in one morning. My 2016 Captain America Legends audits start at the present time: with the fervently anticipated Marvel Legends Taskmaster figure!
When I heard that the ML Red Skull Red Onslaught Build-A-Figure arrangement had been seen in a few stores the previous evening, I kind of shrugged my shoulders carelessly, happy with the information that I previously had the wave pre-requested on the web.
At that point I woke up brilliant and early today and spurned all that I had made arrangements for the day and invested hours out and about, coming full circle with finding the new Marvel Legends 2016 Taskmaster figure at a Toys R Us 90 minutes away. It was justified, despite all the trouble.
Drill sergeant has for quite some time been one of my most loved miscreants in the Marvel Universe, to a great extent on account of his photographic reflexes being one of the neatest powers around (and indeed, I additionally adored that capacity in Season 2 of “Legends”, and never pardoned that show for dropping Monica’s character).
Toybiz completed a strong exemplary Taskmaster Legends figure numerous years prior, and I didn’t know there was a sufficiently substantial fan base to make creating his Udon ensemble beneficial. Yet, now that I have this Taskmaster to audit, I’m astoundingly happy he exists.
In addition to the fact that this looks more like a ninja than the standard variant of this character, yet it has the enunciation to back it up: twofold jointed knees and elbows, lower leg rockers, swivel thighs and biceps, ball-jointed head, shoulders and hips, upper middle abdominal muscle crunch, swivel abdomen… this Taskmaster has relatively every purpose of verbalization one could request.
Not at all like some ML figures, the enunciation is well-concealed and doesn’t bring down the visual of the character by any means. Also, the majority of the joints are pleasant and tight, with no stickiness or quality-control issues to talk about. I’m not more often than not the sort of individual to posture and rest my toys, however this is certainly one I can see myself grabbing and moving around routinely.
And keeping in mind that the outfit for this Taskmaster Udon suit isn’t 100% precise to the source material (especially the legs), it’s extremely very close without Hasbro tooling new one of a kind forms that wouldn’t be helpful anyplace else.
The Marvel Legends Taskmaster figure incorporates four aggregate embellishments: an additional head (with hood), the Red Onslaught BAF Red Skull head, a sword and a shield. That is a quite muscular load out, and all things considered, I won’t weep over the absence of removable guns from his web adapt.
The paintwork on Taskmaster’s shield is dazzling, with the majority of the lines applies flawlessly. Like Captain America’s shield (since it is Captain America’s repainted shield), the shield can be connected to Taskmaster’s back, cut to his wrist or hung on his hand.
In the interim, the sword had a dark grip and a translucent red-orange sharp edge. Indeed, even in this cycle, Taskmaster using as vitality sword appears somewhat irregular to me. All things being equal, the sword looks great and fits firmly into his hand. I may exchange this out for a standard sword in my presentation, yet it truly is a fun weapon.
At last, the Udon head. In spite of the fact that it’s the more “right” set out toward this figure, the Udon Taskmaster set out isn’t toward me, in spite of the fact that I do believe it’s truly cool to have the choice of changing Taskmaster into pre-Cyborg General Grievus at whatever point I need (man, those were the brilliant long periods of Hasbro Star Wars figures).
While I envision the larger part of gatherers won’t use the Udon head all the time (choosing the exemplary skull head rather), it’s pleasantly etched and a dynamite expansion that truly makes this figure feel finish.
I could gripe about Hasbro not giving us a cape for Taskmaster, just to have something to fill space here– yet truly, this figure needn’t bother with one (and really ought not have one).
Nothing springs to mind that truly pesters me about this new 6″ Taskmaster Marvel Legends figure, so I’m substance to not grumble. On the off chance that you have an issue that remains to be worked out with this figure, however, leave a remark on this survey and let me know.
By and large: For reasons unknown, I truly wasn’t excited about this Captain America Legends Taskmaster figure– straight up until the point when I had it close by. With two superb weapons and two excellent head decisions, in addition to a striking structure and plentiful verbalization, this is an uncommon Hasbro assume that I truly think couldn’t have been vastly improved than it is. I won’t give the Taskmaster an ‘A+’ as a result of the non-removable guns and off base legs, however something else, this is the authoritative activity figure of Taskmaster in this ensemble, and an exceptional toy in general.
