Regardless i’m well behind in my 2018 Marvel Legends audits, so I will separate from my typical arrangement and thump out two figure surveys at the cost of one today! While the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Lizard Series has been out in stores (supposedly) for two or three months presently, it’s been exceedingly elusive in a ton of regions. In the event that you haven’t acquired the Marvel Legends Lasher and Prowler Figures yet, would they say they are justified regardless of the chase? Here’s my survey…
As far back as I was a child and saw him in the 90s Spider-Man vivified arrangement, I’ve constantly loved the Prowler. I chased down the comic books he showed up in, possessed his Toybiz activity figure, and viewed myself as one of the greatest devotees of the C-List Spider-Man character.
I’ve been trusting Hasbro would get around to giving us another Prowler Marvel Legends figure for a couple of years now, lastly he’s here. In any case, does he live up to my desires? Well… no.
Hasbro settled on the great search for the Prowler and not the more current outfit from his (typically brief) solo comic book, which I believe was unquestionably the correct choice.
All things considered, they likewise picked a super dim purple for the ensemble rather than the more unmistakable lavender, and I think the subsequent figure is, well… appalling. To me, the hues on this figure simply wind up looking off.
And keeping in mind that the character plan for Prowler may look somewhat basic initially, the outfit represented some genuine difficulties for the Hasbro configuration group that I’m not by any stretch of the imagination persuaded they completely survived.
At the point when the cape is connected to, Prowler’s neckline is coasting over his chest put under his head. It looks peculiar, and the heaviness of being held noticeable all around makes the peg for the cape drop out consistently. The rubbery cape likewise goes the distance to the floor, which makes getting Marvel Legends Prowler into any sort of unique represents a genuine test.
The hooks for the figure look incredible, yet the wrist trinkets and anklets both are difficult to work with. The wrist trinkets aren’t exactly sufficiently tight to hold immovably set up without floundering around, while the anklets are tight to the point that it’s entirely bit of a fight just to get them to the correct position at the highest point of Hobie’s boots in the first place.
While the extra ensemble bits act as a burden and make this figure not too much amusing to present, despite everything he includes the standard ML super-verbalization: stomach muscle crunch; ball-pivot neck/shoulders; swivel-pivot wrists; twofold pivot knees and elbows; swivel abdomen/thighs/boots/biceps; ball-jointed hips and pivoted lower legs with rockers.
Be that as it may, hello, talking about figures whose extra bits act as a burden and abatement the fun factor, now appears the ideal time to segue into examining Marvel Legends Lasher. Lasher was effortlessly my most loved of the Life Foundation Symbiotes as a kiddo, however this is another figure I feel let around.
While Lasher ought to never be super-tore like Venom, the Superior Venom form Hasbro picked for this figure looks too thin and gaunt to me for this character.
He looks off-display in work, as well as in hues too—Toybiz nailed the comic hues for Lasher once upon a time, and Hasbro’s palette simply doesn’t appear as exact. Exacerbating the situation, the shape picked doesn’t have any sort of surface to it whatsoever, so Lasher’s symbiote is fundamentally only a layer of paint and looks, well… quite faltering.
The most noticeably awful thing about this figure, however, is the unsavory module ringlets that append to his back. They’re totally unsaid, hinder a greater part of stances you’d need to attempt to place Lasher into, and get knocked off always when endeavoring to move him around.
The Lasher Marvel Legends figure has all indistinguishable enunciation from Prowler does, aside from with the marvelous butterfly swivel bears rather than swivel boots. With some exertion, you can get this consider along with some perfect represents—it’s certainly very little fun “playing” with him and getting him into those stances without knocking off the ringlets, however.
Overall:While Lasher and Prowler are the two characters that I like and was anticipating owning current Marvel Legends 6″ figures of, at last the two figures have their downsides and are simply entirely normal.
The purple on Marvel Legends Prowler isn’t to my stylish taste, yet unmistakably critically, the cape configuration impedes representing, the anklets and wristbands are fiddly, and he’s simply not too much amusing to play with.
In the mean time, the form utilized for Lasher looks excessively thin for the character, having zero etched surface for the Symbiote and simply having it painted on doesn’t look very right, and the rings truly act as a burden and meddle when attempting to present him.
These are the two characters I’m a major enthusiast of, yet in this occasion, these Marvel Legends figures are essentially “approve” and not the triumphs that we’ve developed to know and love from Hasbro in the course of recent years. These are fine pickups for aficionados of the characters (and those building the Lizard BAF), however could be made strides.
