Oh hello ladies and gents…when you want that cool guy on those hot nights, ole Iceman is here to-HEY YOU! Get off of my keyboard! Grrr…Damn it Bobby Drake…sorry about that, serves me right for not logging off…ANYWAY, Marvel Legend time! We have a long scarce X man! Seriously, if you have been reading the issues with Marvel and Fox the X-men will be going the way of the Fantastic Four, so enjoy them while we have em! So let us look at one of the original, ICEMAN!
Now this is my only version of the character, and it is pretty cool (ouch)! He is using the Pizza Spiderman body like Antman, so has a nice lanky appearance with all the posing potential. He is also translucent, so yes you do see al his inner workings and swivels and such. I’m really impressed with the face sculpt. It has the only real dab of color for the eyes, and they work.
With the Spidey body you get all the dynamics you would want. The body balances well, and with the translucence, has neat looks in various light. Did I mention his bare feet look great? Can make out all his toes quite nicely…errr…umm…if that is your thing…*goes to clear browser*
I love the butterfly shoulders on this model, they should become a new standard to be honest. Gives you the ability for some more real life poses. Iceman has some new hands and feet with ice chunks on them as well as some more ice for his back and shoulders.
The shoulder bits are actually a plug in piece so if you like your Iceman a bit more sleek, you have that option.
Of course you can use that hole for a display stand, which seriously Hasbro…MAKE YOUR OWN!!! NECA just came out with theirs, Takara has em…we would buy them! *rant done*.
Now his joints are a bit on the gummy side, but I blame the translucent plastic. It does have a slight reputation for not being the strongest most durable material. Still it looks fantastic for a man made of ice.
As with all the current Marvel Legends you do get your build a part for the Juggernaught, so if you want the big guy you are buying Bobby here…BUT I can say that this is a fun figure, and if you are an X-men fan you are going to want him. Due to the gummy joints, seeing all the workings, I’ve got to give Iceman a B, but it’s a solid B.
