The third in series Avengers movie “Avengers: Infinity War” is in for release this 27th, April in theaters and all of collectors are bracing ourself for mega superhero figurine release. Yes me included! I was in my favorite toy store “Hamleys, Bangalore” few weeks back and there was this entire pavilion dedicated to “Avengers: Infinity War” stuff and guess what took the center stage… Thanos’s infinity gauntlet.
Next to it is Thanos figurines in all shapes and sizes! Some are technically toys that makes dialogues and then there are figurines in multiple price points and quality levels. I ended up with this Marvel Legends Series Thanos Figurine, which is the most promising one in the pegs. Lets unbox and see how he fairs.
The box itself is magical and out of this world, the purplish face of Thanos and the graphics with electrify lines makes the box unique and nice. I personally like the aggressive face graphics of Thanos and his infinity gauntlet. The back side gives some hint about Thanos, which is nice and that massive pic of the original figurine, which unlike other boxes!
Come back to the shape of the box which is nice as well. The clamshell like box is slightly curved on the top, which give maximum view via the window. I also like the top part with that infinity gauntlet like graphics, which fit this figurine the most.
This box is relatively heavier than other figurines in the same series. Yes the Thanos is physically larger than most characters so this is ok. Just out of curiosity I dropped this box in my trusty old scale and it read 355gms, which gives you some reference for future.
This is technically not an unbox but a unpackaging because this kind of a blister packing. Being my first Marvel Legends figurine unboxing I was not sure how to get this out… but the process is relatively simple and the entire case that holds the figurine came off in no time, fully revealing the figurine.
The background has a sort of nice pink and blue extraterrestrial look further enhances the box and the blue armored Thanos figurine with yellow accessories. This background also gives that depth to this figurine.
The blister package is very firm and does an exceptional in holding this massive Thanos figurine in place. The package consist of one figurine and three addons… But when I opened it I only got two! But then I realized that the left fist and his wrist cover is considered two different add-on apart from his angry face.
This Thanos figurine looks exceptional when he is out! That metal construction gives hime that butch look and I see him a bit slouched but that doesn’t takes away the fact his nature to destroy for fun. This might be my first fully articulating figurine and I am loving it already!
The articulating joints lets you display him in countless posses be your creativity be the blocker. I tried the pose thats on the back of the box with his infinity gauntlet been flashed and I guess I achieved it… well almost.
The seated pose is a lot of fun and can totally ruin his angry nature, give him a beer or a champagne to celebrate end of days. The gringy smile in his complete that perfect pose.
Though the joints show up a little bit but it is ok in most parts. I like poses that I can achieve with this figurine have fun in the process. Check out some storyline poses that I did with him related to the movie “Avengers: Infinity War” with my Ironman and Hulk figurines.
How do you guys like these poses, Let me know in the comments section below. I would be doing a full review soon and I am uber excited to do. Till next time… Ciao.
