Minimates Wave 39 Destroyer
Originally packed with Thor in both a Toys R Us Thor Movie wave, and the Wave 39 release, the Destroyer wound up on my hit list not because of any Thor based association. This beastly creature of Asgard was a Herald of Galactus and those that know me, know that that is enough to get on my plastic wish list.
- Exceptionally solid build on this figure.
- While solid, Destroyer is exceptionally pose-able and thanks to his good weight he stands on his own very well.
- The paint application on this figure is needle point fine and outstanding, head to toe, side to side.
- Let’s talk more about the paint, look at the detail on the arms. This is really commendable work on a figure that so many other producers of plastic crack miss the mark on.
- Excellent molding on the head shape!
- I got nothin’. Ok, maybe just that I couldn’t pick this up for a nice light MSRP, and instead had to go the eBay route.
- If you love Thor and his universe, get the Destroyer. If you love Galactus and his Heralds, get this. If you love great figures…get this.
- Thor’s first movie is a getting long in the tooth so coming by this set will be relegated to toy stores that stock older stuff and eBay. If you can find it though it’s a totally worthwhile pickup. You can also look at the brighter side, Thor 2 is coming…maybe the Destroyer gets a new fig.
