It has been a few months since I’ve done a Marvel Legend review here, but I still collect them! A lot that don’t make it to the review page can be found here. Still I saw this guy at my Wallgreens and two thoughts went to my head, 1) My god, I actually have him here in NC, these are being distributed properly! 2) Ok, Eric O’Grady, perfect exclusive, short run, no lasting impact. So I picked him up and here we go!
First, if you don’t know Eric, wiki him. This wasn’t his original costume, and I do hope one day to see that in action figure form. Still, this is a GREAT looking figure. Black and red are looking sharp with just the bit of silver on the belt. It’s simple, but makes a statement. He is bare bones, be aware. What you are seeing here is all you get, no extra hands, no effects, nada…still, for an exclusive I actually really like that. Nothing to pine for if you can’t find him.
Of course the budget went into the helmet, and it is a GREAT Ant-man Helmet. The antennae don’t feel fragile, the face is defined, and the metal has some nice etchings to it. This will probably come out again in the proper Pym colors, which to my knowledge have only been in the Toybiz and the 3.75 stuff.
Articulation is excellent. Can hit all kinds of compact crouches to true dynamic action shots. I would have liked at least one other set of hands, but that is me being greedy…they would have just added that much more fun though.
He even passes the one leg standing test, so of course immediate bonus points.
Of course all this awesome body action (quiet, you have a dirty mind) goes to the fact he is using the latest Spiderman body, which was AWESOME…and really should review one day…
I have zero qualms about this guy. Is he essential? Nope, so if you can’t find him, you won’t be going nuts. Eric was a neat character with a short run. If you do find him, he is easily worth a pick up because everything is done right and you won’t regret him. This is how I like my exclusives. Great to have but not missed if you can’t find. A+ Hasbro, you get an A+
