Polaris is another of those X-Men characters who’s had a really unpleasant time throughout the years. She’s been a legend, she’s been a lowlife. She’s been insane, she’s been not insane. Once in a while she’s even Magneto’s girl! Be that as it may, one thing Lorna Dane has dependably had going for her is a base of no-nonsense authorities needing to see her get her first-ever 6″ figure. What’s more, that day has come finally: Marvel Legends Polaris is a piece of the X-Men Legends wave transporting this month from online retailers!
Updates here on Marvel Toy News might be more meager than normal this week, as I’m off at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this week (and you can discover my news inclusion of Celebration on Star Wars Toy News beginning not long from now!).
Yet, before I got on the plane to Orlando (that I was persuaded I would kick the bucket on because of the insane disturbance), I transferred photographs and recorded my contemplations around a standout amongst the most-asked for residual Marvel Legends figures: Polaris!
Polaris is another of those characters– like Jubilee– who gatherers had been requesting for over 10 years. Since Hasbro has filled a standout amongst the most striking gaps in the X-Men Legends universe, how about we investigate…
While the X-Factor Polaris ensemble is my most loved search for the character, Hasbro ran with an all-green current outfit on the Marvel Legends Polaris figure. This is presumably the best decision, as the green outfit is close enough to the exemplary ensemble to be relatively notable and fulfill great fans.
The glossy green paints decided for the Polaris Marvel Legends figure look brilliant, and are a feature of the figure. The majority of the paint applications on the Polaris six inch figure are slick and clean, so I have no grievances.
We can include “embellishments” to the rundown of numerous things that Havok and Polaris have shared throughout the years (*cough*), as the Marvel Legends X-Men Polaris figure accompanies precisely the same pieces that appeared with Havok a year ago (now in lemon-line shading!).
I’m as of now getting very copied out on these impacts pieces as of now with the multiple occasions we’ve seen them utilized in only the previous year, yet the translucent concentric circles are the most ideal way I can consider to depict Polaris’ capacities in toy shape. The attractive impacts pieces look extremely pleasant here– allows simply trust they get a break in some future arrangement.
The one “add-on” piece to Polaris’ outfit is a green cape. The cape’s peg fits super cozily tucked under her hair and into the opening in her back– to such an extent that I nearly overlooked it was removable.
Wonder Legends Warlock Series Polaris certainly stands up better with the cape evacuated, yet she likewise looks somewhat stripped without the cape (however perhaps not as much as Havok might want).
Wonder Legends Warlock Series Polaris unquestionably stands up better with the cape evacuated, yet she likewise looks somewhat stripped without the cape (however perhaps not as much as Havok might want).
The one bona fide disillusionment about the first-since forever Polaris Marvel Legends 6″ figure is the way that she keeps on utilizing a form that is outdated explanation astute. For reasons unknown, the explanation conspires on female Marvel Legends figures are still quite often sub-par compared to that of their male partners.
The absence of additional enunciation focuses in the arms to a great extent diminishes the quantity of potential represents that should be possible with the impacts pieces, or, in other words since waving her arms to control attraction is Polaris’ entire schtick.
Notwithstanding the arm enunciation being not up to snuff, Lorna’s head is unavoidably limited from gazing upward or around much by her hard plastic hard.
I likewise had a harder time motivating her to stand up steadily in powerful postures than practically some other Marvel Legends 2017 figure. While the cape looks great, it makes her back-substantial and confines the officially restricted poseability of the figure.
Generally speaking: While I’m not as fascinated with X-Men Marvel Legends Polaris as a few people appear to be (principally because of the enunciation impediments), there’s no denying this is a decent 6″ Polaris figure. Also, as she’s probably going to be the just a single we get for quite a while (or ever), I thoroughly consider any fans there who’ve been sitting tight for a Lorna Dane activity figure would do well to scoop this one up.
