Marvel Legends Black Panther 2018 Wave: Sub-Mariner

Folks were pretty excited when Namor (Sub-Mariner) was released as a Walgreens exclusive in the Marvel Legends line.  He was an outstanding figure that warranted the buzz.  We had a blast reviewing him for you. One of the very few thumbs down remarks was this though, “Can I get a non-exclusive running change featuring Namor’s classic costume?”  So…am I a sooth sayer? Am I a prognosticator of prognosticators?  I may just be, because less than a year later, boom, here we are with underpants Sub-Mariner!

The Good

  • The classic look of Sub-Mariner is just nailed spot on here.  Living out of a page in the comic.
  • Ankle “wings” look great.
  • The shine and shimmer on his Speed-O is just so perfectly captured, it really has a fish scale glimmer to it. 
  • His trident fits better in his hand this time around vs. the 2017 Namor release.
  • Alternate bearded head looks great on this Sub-Mariner, and last years Namor.  
  • His pointed ears are well executed.
  • He’s highly pose-able and features all modern articulation short of butterfly chest joints.

The Bad

  • Just a few small green paint smudges on his chest.

The Rest

Welcome to the collection Sub-Mariner, you are now my favorite Namor figure!  Hasbro did it again and did it huge here.  They addressed the most iconic version of Sub-Mariner accurately, respectfully, and to great effect.  This needs to find it’s way into your collection.  See you tomorrow for our look at Okoye! The build a figure from this Black Panther Marvel Legends wave!
