Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series Mandroid Review

Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series Mandroid 01

 

Mandroid is the build-a-figure for Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series and is offered for the first time as an action figure. Mandroids were created by Tony Stark for use by Shield and were first introduced in The Avengers #94 in 1971.

For fans hoping to build a Mandroid, this would require you to locate Black Widow as she is only packed as one per case in wave 2, while Captain America has 3 and Winter Soldier has 2 figures per case. Since Black Widow includes the torso, she is vital to building Mandroid and since she is produced less compared to other characters, not all fans hoping to build Mandroid will be able too.

We believe this is a bit of an outrage to only pack her out as one per case, and the fact that she includes the Torso to Mandroid, the one piece needed to combine all other pieces of this build-a-figure only makes it harder on fans to even build Mandroid. This takes us back to the Hasbro Toy Fair 2014 Press Event when one of us overheard a Hasbro representative stating that he was surprised at how much White Queen was going for on the secondary market (if you remember White Queen was offered to comic book ships and some online retailers as part of the Puck Series in late 2013). It makes us wonder why a representative would even say that probably knowing that she too was packed out as one per case. Either Hasbro’s own team does not understand that only packing certain figures out as one per case is a bad thing, or they just aren’t paying that close attention to case assortment details.

Another comment from the same Hasbro representative was that fans could army build Mandroids. We should have asked Hasbro how is this possible when one character that includes the torso is only packed out as one per case?

The breakdown of build-a-figure parts included in the assortment is as followed:

  • WW2 Captain America – No Build-A-Figure Parts
  • Marvel Now! Captain America – Head
  • Agents Of Hydra Red Skull/Hydra Soldier – Left Arm
  • Soldiers Of A.I.M Baron Zemo/A.I.M. Soldier- Right Arm
  • Wave 2 – Captain America – Right Leg
  • Wave 2 – Winter Soldier – Left Leg
  • Wave 2 – Black Widow – Torso

Availability: March 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

Mandroid features an all new sculpt with a shoulder cannon that is also packed in with Black Widow, a blade, double machine gun cannon, a smooth and texture body armor finish, a jetpack sculpted onto the back, and a shield logo on the chest.

His entire body is painted grey with a yellow visor, yellow, silver and black deco on his accessories.

Articulation:

Ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, hinged elbows, ball jointed hips, waist rotation, swivel thighs, hunged legs, hinged and swivel ankles.

Accessories:

Shoulder cannon, double machine gun cannon, blade.

Overall:

Mandroid is an excellent figure and we highly suggest picking up all the figures from the wave to build him. That’s if you can find them all without purchasing a case assortment to guarantee you can build him (which is something you might want to consider – take a look at Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore for case assortments).

Highly recommended.
