Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Star-Lord Action Figure Star-Lord was a great hero in the sense that he seems to be a perfect 21st century take on Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Heroes of the post-Nixon era worked in a morally ambiguous culture where society was hungry for someone who was basically a good guy, and Guardians of the Galaxy exists in an America packed with nothing but moral murk - so the treasure-hunting, sleeping-around, two-fisted hero/thief is a decent fit for us. He's fun, friendly, decent fellow who (for better or for worse) just happens to follow in the endless "chosen one has the power to stop a doomsday device" trope that sadly permeates nearly every genre story to which we're subjected. But it was fun - and this is a decent figure.

Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Star-Lord Action FigureWith the movies, Hasbro generally can't reuse existing tooling. Peter Quill is a 6-inch tall heroic character in a long coat with a pretty non-Marvelly outfit - if anything, he's more at home with Star Wars figures. (A pity they didn't do 3 3/4-inch ones.) The engineering is quite good, and while the plastic is a little on the rubbery side he seems to stand fairly well without too much additional assistance. He's about as close to super-articulated as you can get for a dude in a coat, and of course the coat sort of gets in the way - or acts as a stand, depending on what kind of action pose you're shooting for.

He seems to be based on preproduction designs a bit, as the mask and head don't quite perfectly align to the final product. It looks vaguely like Chris Pratt, but the same can be said of many human heads in this scale regarding their actor likenesses. Sculpting is good, deco is good, the only real place for improvement is adding some paint to the all-orange (and oddly, painted) Walkman or perhaps giving him some new heads. His fingers are each sculpted separately, so you can "grip" his accessories more easily. This is no small feat, and it really does help him hold on to all of his gear. All in all Hasbro did a nice job, given the limitations on how quickly the toys needed to be cranked out and the short shoot time for the movie. Filming started in July 2013 and the toys were on-shelf in July 2014 - even with a lot of resources, that's a rushed production schedule unless you work off of concept art, and even then it's a bit of a quick turnaround.

Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Star-Lord Action Figure

Guardians hit the world unprepared, meaning that it wouldn't stun me to see more toys and licensed goodies based on the movie in the coming years because, clearly, the demand exists. This figure was packed 2 per box (Iron Man was the other 2 per box guy), and really is the best one in terms of piece count and overall detail. You get your money's worth with Star-Lord, and even if you didn't like the movie it's as close as you're going to get to an Andy Dwyer figure. If you only get one toy from this line, make it this one - but if you get two, get all six because you'll want Groot. (And yes, Rocket Raccoon's movie figure is kind of below average.)
