Marvel Legends 2017 Wave 1: BAF Sandman
We are winding down our tour through Marvel Legends 2017 Wave One. We’ve hit on seven amazing single carded figures, and today we get a look at the big bad Build-A-Figure. Sandman gets his first official Marvel Legends figure (the former being 2007 releases from a Spider-Man branded Legends line, a BAF and regular Sandman)** I 100% spaced here. This is not Sandmans first official Legends release. That came as part of the Raft SDCC Exclusive in 2016. The set was amazing, the Sandman was amazing. You can read the full review here. We loved him, but as far as general release, this SM still counts as numero 1. As with all previous figures in this wave, the current really buries the former in the dust. Fans of Spider-Man, fans of Sandman, and fans of fine figure making will find a ton to love here. Let’s check out how Hasbro did with Sandman.
- Sandman is in perfect scale with this wave.
- Massive accessories feel solid, sturdy, and I was able to balance Sandman reasonably well with them attached.
- Sandman comes with two heads. One is human, the other is outright disturbing, showing sand-battle damage. Check out the gallery, that Hasbro was able to capture such a haunting visage for a character that I don’t really find all that creepy is exceptional.
- The person to sand transformation that is captured in this figure is very well done.
- A lot of attention to detail here with regards to veins in the sculpt.
- Solid paint application, not dazzling art on Sandman, he’s a simple character, but he’s well taken care of from paint and design perspectives.
- If you have been waiting for a de-facto Sandman for your Legends collection, this is it, undisputed without question.
- I know I know…always greedy I am. We got a ton for this figure, but a pair of human / non-sand arms, I feel like would have made sense here as well.
Sandman is a fantastic build a figure that adds value to an already very solid wave of figures. Figures, all of which, any Marvel Legends fan should be happy to own and want to go buy. .The options that come with this BAF set it apart from many that came before, normally a BAF is a BAF and what you see is what you get, but that you can change up Sandman in a few ways enhances the value further. Happy hunting, this brilliant wave should be hitting big box retail soon!
If you want Sandman, you have to go buy 7 figures. The whole wave. You can do that at Big Bad Toy Store conveniently enough!
Marvel Legends 2017 Wave 1: Shocker
Shocker, our final “regular” figure review of 2017 Legends Wave 1 (still more to come of course)! Another rogue from Spider-Man’s seemingly endless gallery. Shocker is baddie most of us know and love, not an incredibly deep dive into the catalog, but one none-the-less that is absolutely necessary and this fills a massive gap in 6 inch Marvel plastic. This is Shocker’s first official entry in the Marvel Legends toy line (not counting his 2005 Spider-Man line release). I feel like the fine folks at Hasbro approached this figure with that understanding and went the extra mile to make the wait worth it. The wait was worth it.
- The paint application here is perfect. There is a lot of fine line work, especially with the mesh on yellow and it all looks razor sharp.
- This is really a great take on one of the more memorably clad Marvel villains. While it’s not his first appearance costume that so many hold dear, it is a familiar take if more modern.
- Shocker’s gauntlets look fantastic.
- The “plasma” energy accessories work well for the character and fit well on his hands.
- Shocker’s facial expression tells the whole story of the character from start to finish and all’s it takes is that wink.
- I would have liked to have seen Shocker with his belt, painted or molded on, i don’t care.
- The knee pads stand out a little bit too much for what they are for me. I’d of traded them for the above belt and some boot cuffs if it were up to me.
Hasbro has given us another iconic and recognizable Spider-Man villain with Shocker. A figure that was really way over due. As previously stated, he made an appearance out of a Legends compatible Spider-Man line from Toy Biz in 2005. This figure compared to that figure though, we are talking diamonds and rust really. This is a pretty figure, a great representation of a must have character, and ultimately, it’s figures like this that keep me collecting. Take a classic, make him shiny and new, and I’ll find space for him on my shelves I promise! Also, want to give a nod to Marvel Legends 3.75. They will see their own first official “in-line” Shocker this year too! I”m sure he’s going to be at least this awesome!
Shocker is available from our friends at BigBadToyStore, but only as part of the whole set or full case. For a little more than retail, you can pick Shocker up at Amazon. You might also want to just hang back, because these figures should be showing up at standard retail stores very very soon. There is another option too. Head on over to our friends at Kastor’s Korner. They will be giving away the full wave…”soon”. And remember…fortune favors the bold. Patience favors the broke.
While we aren’t giving away Juggernaut, make sure you enter to win Movie Doctor Strange and enter for future giveaways, we should have 1-2 per week for the next few!
