Marvel Legends figures released for Captain Marvel with some surprises!Overall I think this looks like a great addition to the Marvel Legends figures. Looks like quality was maintained the major characters of the film, the set also add a couple of characters from the comics that I do not expect to see in the film in Genis Vell and Grey Gargoyle. Both look awesome and while not expected to be in the film they certainly fit into the Captain Marvel Mythos.
Be warned that looking at these figures may reveal some spoileristic materail. They do reveal a couple of things.
My favorite figure is hard to pick, I normally pick the wild masked laser beam figures but I have to say the more down to Earth Carol Danvers in bomber Jacket and Nick Fury figures look fantastic. Both have a very human quality mixed with coolness. Also I love the cat in both of these figure sets. I will warn you that looking at the cat may reveal some things. The cat is freaking awesome! The bomber jacket really I think adds a much needed layer to Carol its part of her character and her history. There is nothing wrong with the pure costume version of Carol that does provide her Mohawk look but if I had to pick between the two I would go with the bomber jacket version.
I think Talos looks really good. I wish that he had weapon or something extra but he does look fantastic. This is the best Skrull figure I have seen so its nice to see the iconic alien villains come to life in this way.
At the bottom of the page you will find the Starforce Commander figure that most suspect is Judd Law's mysterious character. Is he Yonn Rogg? Is he Mar Vell? Is he someone.........else? I don't know but Hasbro is playing its cards close to the vest and the description gives very little away.
A few beefs with the set. I think what is here is good I do wish they might have included another Skrull or two maybe with some shape changing heads. I also think they should have included Doctor Minerva who will be played by the entrancing Gemma Chan. Doctor Minerva is a classic Captain Marvel villain and Gemma Chan is an amazing actress who already set the world on fire in her role as Astrid in Crazy Rich Asians. The character has only appeared in a blip of the previews and I have had a hundred people ask me who she is. Yeah she should have had a figure made. I also think a Supreme Intelligence would have been a cool figure. That said these are just wishes on my part and the set itself is very cool as is.
Toylab Villains Rule
My rule with Toys is that there should always be more villains than heroes and this set does fail that. The reason is that the Hero should have challenges and each villain is a challenge. Having a whole bunch of heroes gang up on a villain is pretty boring. This set does provide two great villains in Talos and Grey Gargoyle. Now I will say this if you look at this set a little differently and you count the Starforce Commander as a villain and the Kree Sentry as a villain then you get awfully close to parity. That is better than most sets do.
The Build A Figure
The build a figure for this set is the Kree Sentry which is looks cool and very much goes along with the theme of this set.
