Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Gamora Action FigureHasbro's direction with Marvel Legends seems to be similar to their other lines, with a focus on the main characters and heroes - the movie poster fodder. That's why it makes sense that we got Gamora and not the villains or secondary guys - it's great to see the entire team in a wave, as it seems Hasbro assumed that they had only one shot at this. From what I saw nobody really got what the movie was going to do before it hit, with things like Groot clearly not making the translation to roleplay toys or other kid-driven stuff quite as well. Thankfully Gamora got a few figures, but unsurprisingly (as with other franchise female leads) she was pretty much stuck in collector mode. Her sword wasn't a roleplay weapon and this was the best Gamora you could get at launch.

Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Gamora Action FigureSo! How is this all-new-sculpt 6-inch action figure? Pretty good. Hasbro managed to recreate the costume nicely, and did a pretty good job recreating a thin figure with exposed flesh arms and a bunch of joints. This can be tough to do well, particularly when getting the face right at this scale. Skin tone is always tough to nail down, so getting to cheat with green make-up helps her look a little more like Zoe Saldana as green make-up is easier to get right than whatever make-up would have been used on her normal not-green skin tone. (Similarly, see Aayla Secura or Wicked Witch of the West stuff.) The costume isn't too complex, but there are some good textures and buckles which were replicated nicely. The various joints are mostly hidden, with a different (and visible) mid-torso joint allowing for some more poseability there rather than an ab crunch or the more popular option - no joint at all.

With 18 points of articulation and a mobile belt, you can get some decent poses out of this figure. Really, the only problem is gravity - bigger figures suffer on display over time. If you put her on a standard disc-with-peg display stand, she's more likely to sag and tip over given time. I'd suggest going with the clipped metal doll stands available online or with craft stores, otherwise she's going to fall and take Iron Man, Star-Lord, and Black Cat with her. The deco is very good as the skin tone seems to match the movie just fine - again, a great cheat given Hasbro sometimes struggles with human flesh tones - but what's really nifty is the blue on the costume. The figure is cast in a blue metallic paint that has this weird otherworldly illusion of depth, painted over in spots with black. This is not how the fabric looks in real life I assume, but it makes for a striking action figure. It also seems it may be swirly metallic, which has me somewhat concerned for her future.

Articulation is on the happy side of good, with a hairstyle that doesn't restrict neck movement in addition to rocker ankles plus bend-and-swivel wrists. She has no problem holding her sword and generally looks decent in most poses you can get her into. Just don't expect her to stay standing for months at a time, if you're a shelf-based display person.

This is a decent figure, in that it hides most of the articulation well while looking a fair amount like the actress with a good recreation of the costume. As the team's straight man - no small feat when you're teaming up with the intergalactic Marx Brothers - she had the thankless job of kicking butt without being able to crack jokes every other scene, which may have been one of the reasons she was the figure you generally saw sitting early on after Star-Lord and Iron Man. While her build is not conducive to standing up unassisted long-term, Hasbro did a nice job designing and executing the figure otherwise. While I love the Groot pieces included with these figures, more and more I wish they came with a good, solid, clip-based display stand instead.
