And that's it! With Luke Cage, Power Man I believe I've finished looking at the entire Kenner Marvel line, minus the metallic variants. I've got a couple of Marvel Monday figures left to push up, but after that I'm going to give myself a break and go back to 3 figures a week. It's a lot to shoot/buy/internalize without putting more work into improving things like the breaking-down photo studio. Sadly this line ended before we got Iron Fist, as the two tended to appear together a lot during the old days.
He looks like all new parts - a real surprise for a line's final wave. The big boot tops are similar to those seen on Cyclops [FOTD #2,620], but they're different sculpts. The legs are similar but again, barely different. The head is new, as is the chest, and as are the arms. The open yellow shirt and chain belt are all here, giving us a figure that's a lot more Kenner-esque than some others. Hasbro left off the swivel wrists, giving the figure stiffer limbs that are much more like the toys put out by Kenner in the 1980s.
He has no accessories, but since he has a lot of unbreakable skin, I guess there's that. You're getting more or less what you would imagine, except the eyes are a little more modern than an actual Kenner toy. Hasbro gave you whites of his eyes, and sometimes Kenner did that but usually, not. His head is also a little on the small side given his build.
This was a nifty line of figures which may be over - or not. There are plenty of repaints left to do and Hasbro could probably trot these out on variant cardbacks because the artwork is such a selling point, fans would likely buy them again. I like this figure - but I admit I am not super familiar with characters that didn't have cartoons when I was growing up. (Also I skipped Netflix Marvel. I know, I know, it's supposedly awesome.) This detailed figure has bright yellow and deep rich black in his costume with decent silver highlights - I like it. Fans should probably snag him before he gets discontinued, at some point he'll probably get expensive intact. The bubble slid right off the cardback, so I expect a lot of these will have weak adhesive.
