“You have my respect, Stark. When I’m done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you.”

Back Story: Thanos is best known for his role in the 1991 Infinity Gauntlet where he successfully collected all 6 Infinity gems into a gauntlet and snapped his fingers wiping out half the Universe.

What’s in the box:  Three distinct head portraits, one cosmic cube, interchangeable hands, chest and shoulder armor, one light-up infinite gauntlet with two interchangeable hands, and one display base with gauntlet logo.

The Verdict:  The light-up feature gauntlet was the highlight of this character. Although the resemblance was spot on the bulkiness of the figure made posing pretty difficult. I tried to use a display prop of his throne from the MCU movie without success. I was unable to place him in a sitting position in order to, well, sit on his throne. When attempting this I popped his leg out of socket had it not been for his outfit being two separate pieces I would not have been able to put his leg back on. I am A Mezco fan and if you don’t have plans on doing anything but a vanilla pose then this figure is for you. If you are expecting to pose, sit, display in action style, Thanos is not the character for you. Heavy-duty figure though and the gauntlet light-up features again was the stand out with the set up you can see every stone in his gauntlet lit up brightly. If you are a Thanos fan grab this guy but as I said don’t expect dynamic poses out of this one. I don’t hate it but def. not one of my favorite.
