Superhuman outfits being constantly overhauled is an unavoidable truth in the comic book world that perusers have for quite some time been acclimated with. However, some new understandings truly confuse you in any case, similar to the case with me and logger looking, hairy Colossus. Through the span of a year the look at last developed on me– in the nick of time for the facial hair to be shaved off in the most recent funnies! Be that as it may, hello, in any event we’ll generally have this new Hasbro X-Men Marvel Legends Colossus figure, correct?
I’ll be absolutely legitimate: the first run through (or initial 100 times) I saw Colossus with a facial hair, I thought it looked totally silly. That is to say, a man with steel skin growing a facial hair? Silly. (Truly, a man with steel skin doesn’t trouble me– its a facial hair that does. I’m mindful.)
In any case, incidentally, this delineation of Colossus truly developed on me– and I really wound up energized for the X-Men Legends Colossus six inch assume that is currently hitting a few stores (and all the more every now and again eBay for two or three bucks above MSRP).
I realize that a few fans are pretty ticked that we got this variant of Piotr Rasputin rather than the Jim Lee form here, yet the Toybiz Marvel Legends Colossus in that outfit is still close immaculate right up ’til today, and I acknowledge Hasbro gradually fabricating a cutting edge X-Men figures list. Thumbs up.
With respect to the questionable whiskery head: it looks picture-flawless. This looks absolutely exact as though the fine art from the simply finishing Extraordinary X-Men comic popped ideal off the page. Regardless of whether you’re a Colossus with whiskers fan or not, the style of this Colossus unshaven head is obviously true to the source material.
Be that as it may, for the individuals who completely can’t stand the Lumberjack Colossus look, Hasbro has been sufficient to give a work of art, clean-shaven head. I don’t discover this form so fun, however I’m happy it’s incorporated for the individuals who can’t stand the whiskers.
Measure shrewd, you’ll see quickly that this ML Colossus activity figure is plainly bigger than 6″ and greater than any non-Build-A-Figure in either X-Men Legends arrangement discharged this far. This is actually as it ought to be, and I’m extremely satisfied with the scale here.
Whatever remains of the figure is well-done, in spite of the fact that it’s the size and head shapes that truly inspire me most about the X-Men Legends Colossus.
This 6″ scale Colossus figure is decent and sturdy– by which I imply that not exclusively can be stand up steadily himself, yet the Russian powerhouse can really bolster both another figure and himself without issues.
Need your Colossus Marvel Legends figure seat squeezing the new Jim Lee Cyclops? Don’t worry about it!
Notwithstanding holding up the new Old Man Logan with one hand for a Fastball Special is a snap for the X-Men’s most notorious solid person (actually no, not unreasonably Strong Guy)!
Paint-wise, this figure is pros. There’s a little bit of red paint on the yellow piece of my Colossus’ back, yet it’s not extremely recognizable and generally everything is perfect and clean.
And keeping in mind that Colossus is a brawler who doesn’t exactly require indistinguishable level of adaptability from Spider-Man, he’s nearly as super-enunciated as any Legends Spidey to date.
Twofold jointed knees, swivel thighs and biceps, lower leg rockers, ball-pivot head and shoulders and wrists… you know the bore. Each purpose of enunciation we would sensibly expect– other than maybe twofold pivoted elbows– is available and represented and works incredible.
I do love to nitpick, however about the main thing about this Colossus toy that I’m a bit “ho-murmur” about is the absence of embellishments.
The tradable exemplary head is an extraordinary frill and I adore that Colossus gets two Warlock BAF pieces (Warlock’s head and buzz saw hand), however I truly would have enjoyed a second clench hand and a second catching hand to give Colossus additionally presenting potential. Needing Piotr think about one hand as a clench hand is somewhat unusual, you know?
In general: The Marvel Legends 2017 Colossus is larger than usual, super-solid and able to do effortlessly holding up different figures, brilliant painted and etched, has the standard noteworthy explanation, two Warlock Build-A-Figure pieces and two dead-on head shapes of his own one of a kind. I’d have adored another clench hand and another catching hand, however else I have zero grievances about what is a wonderful 6″ figure of a variant of Colossus that may not be to everybody’s taste.
