Hasbro releases Marvel Legends based on the House of X

If you haven’t been following Jonathan Hickman’s run on X-Men, he established that all of the mutants have set up their own sovereign nation on the mutant island Krakoa. Only those with the X gene can travel to Krakoa. Part of the defence of the island are the X-Men. Now Hasbro has given us some amazing Marvel Legends figures based on this storyline.

I ended up picking up Wolverine and Marvel Girl. Yes, another Wolverine, but I really like this costume design. It’s a modern revamp of his iconic brown costume. Nice details in the sculpt too. On the belt, you can see the cracks in the leather. Devil is in the details. He comes with a second head with a beard. I have to go back and re-read this story because I didn’t think he could grow a beard due to his healing factor, but still, I like it. 

This is the 2nd Marvel Girl figure we’ve gotten from Hasbro and it’s a huge improvement from the first time around. I’ve always been a huge fan of this costume, so I was so glad to see it make a return and get an action figure on her. The only issue I have with the figure is, unlike other women in the Marvel Legends series, Marvel Girl has no movement on the upper torso, but this is minor. She comes with 2 pairs of hands: 1 pair of fists and 1 pair of open hands. She also comes with a Krakoa plant and the right leg of the Tri-Sentinel.

Regardless of the lack of torso movement in Marvel Girl, these figures have everything you’d expect from Marvel Legends. Lots of poseability and hours of fun. 

I’m really digging these figures and so glad I picked them up. Personally, I think they are a must for your collection, especially Marvel Girl!
