Marvel Infinite Wave 4 Wonder Man
Earlier this week, up popped an Ionic Wonder Man variant from Marvel Infinite Wave 4. The full wave contains solo re-packs of the Guardians of the Galaxy team pack (for a well time movie release coincidence). This wave is facing some criticism for the lack of changes to the original 3-pack release (the figures are exactly the same). It is for this reason that I have opted to skip plucking the full wave in favor of spending a little more on getting the one figure I did really want. Let’s check him out!…ooh but first. Very very very VERY special thanks to Nel Mercad for hooking a brutha up with this fantastic early plastic!
- Sometimes variants are a little bit annoying, delineated by little more than a different finger configuration on a left hand. Thankfully, that’s not the case here. Wonder Man is showing off his ‘ionic’ form (of pure energy). The clear purple plastic captures this in outstanding fashion here.
- The original Wonder Man mold was nice and did a good job of capturing the likeness, this based on that succeeds as well.
- Excellent paint application, which is good because the paint is sparse here, limited to eyes and chest art.
- I don’t know how they’d pull it off but it would be really really cool to see some veiny energy bits under the skin. Not really a knock but an opportunity to make this even better.
Wonder Man is 2 per case in a case of very much re-issued figures in the Guardians from the three pack…best of luck!
