The moment so many 6 inch fans have been salivating over…no wait, maybe I should start that differently…  2012 is going to be a Legendary year and Hasbro is going to make sure of it.  The return of the 6-inch Legends line sees it’s first BAF in Terrax!!  Now, I don’t collect Legends with limited exceptions.  It just so happens that I feel like Terrax at double the size of Marvel Universe figures fits well in scale.  So, I went out of my way to pick up the parts piece meal, and below are the results.

TERRAX

Packaging

Terrax comes packaged in with one to two pieces in each of 6 different wave one 2012 Legends figures.  There are 7 figures in the first wave, but only 6 have BAF pieces.  Thor does not have a BAF piece.  You get a leg each with Klaw and Iron Man, the head and axe with Hope, arms (both) with Ghost rider), Torso and Waist with Steve Rogers and Constrictor.

Paint

Terrax looks great, solid color, nice detail, clean lines.  The character in the comics isn’t one of the more crazy detailed heralds of Galactus.  Hasbro does a fine job of capturing this mean SOB in paint.

Articulation

I think what everyone really wants to hear is that his ankles have an incredible range of motion.  He otherwise has a standard range of motion on all parts allowing for good movement and poseability.

Character Likeness

This planet killer is far more accurately captured here in figure form than in his original incarnation in the early 90’s.

Nothing like a good axe, and Terrax has got one of them big ones. Very accurately captured, fits well in his open hand, and looks great in focus!

Overall

If you are a fan of Marvel Cosmic (which I am), then I can safely tell you that Terrax is an absolute must have.  He’s a herald of Galactus and…who cares what else, that isn’t good enough?  Alright fine, he’s built Ford tough has a big axe, and will fit well against your Legend or Universe line figures.

Grade

Displayed but more to the side. (4 out of 5)

 

Rating System: Each figure will be reviewed under the following categories:
Packaging
Paint
Articulation
Accessories
Character Likeness
Overall: Each figure will then be given an overall grade out of 5 levels:
Displayed front and center – Perfect score
Displayed but more to the side – Second best, nothing wrong with that
Displayed somewhere I might see it – Displayed, it’s good, I like it, not as much as others.
Displayed but buried in the back – Not all that great, but no other options for this figure
Stored* – It’s really not worth displaying. 
*This will be caveat-ed, if the figure is excellent but is being moved out in favor of a better version of the same character, this will be explained.
