Guardians Of The Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Review

Guardians Of The Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series 01

Hasbro’s new Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends wave is one of the best offerings we’ve seen from them this year. It’s not every day they come out with a team themed wave, and include two bonus like Modular Iron Man and Nova. Hasbro made a very smart decision by including a build-a-figure piece for Groot with all 6 figure of the line, instead of having one figure that does not include a build-a-figure part. In previous offerings, we’ve seen that one figure that does not have a build-a-figure piece sitting on shelves holding up stores from ordering more cases. With this wave, that is not going to be the case (we hope!).

The Guardians of the Galaxy wave includes Groot (build-a-figure), Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Modular Iron Man, and Nova.

Availability: June 2014

Groot – He stands at almost 9″ tall, and features a very detailed sculpt with texture sculpted on to look like a giant root. His head sculpt is long and thin with small roots coming out at the back of his head. He has additional tiny roots growing on his forearms and shoulders that are made of rubber.

The figure is painted in brown with green wash over his head, chest and forearms.

Rocket Raccoon – He stands at 3-1/8″ and we are thrilled that he is not the build-a-figure of the line like the comic version was. His articulation was scaled back at his legs, and he can only swivel at his waist and rotate his tail. His head can slightly move but is not meant to be rotated, and his arms have ball-jointed shoulders, hinged-swivel elbows, and swivel wrists. The sculpt is very detailed with texture to resemble fur, and he includes a blaster.

He is painted in brown, with white and black on his face, and an orange and blue outfit.

Gamora – She features a beautiful sculpt with an excellent head sculpt and likeness to the actress. Her costume has some metallic blue deco that stands out in the black. Her legs and thin and long, and getting her to stand without a figure stand is very tricky as she tends to fall over too often. She includes a sword that can be held in one or both hands, and a removable strap around her waist.

She is painted in green skin with tattoos on her face, black and purple metallic hair, blue metallic and black outfit, and a light blue metallic collar.

Drax The Destroyer – He features tattoos sculpted on over his chest and head, which don’t smear and have very detailed thin lines. His sculpt is very solid and he includes two holsters for his knives on his boots.

He is painted in green, with orange tattoos, reddish-brown pants and black boots.

Star-Lord – He comes with the most accessories and features a very detailed sculpt with a coat, backpack strap over the coat, two heads, two blasters, headphones, and a couple of tiny accessories like a silver orb and a yellow walkman. The head sculpts come in a masked and un-masked head, featuring the likeness to the actor. Unfortunately he does not have any storage space on his body for any of his accessories (except for the headphones that can fit over the unmasked head).

He is painted in a grey shirt, blue pants, with a reddish-brown coat, and brown boots.

Modular Iron Man – It’s not to see that Iron Man has a piece to to build Groot, otherwise he would likely be the peg warmer in the wave. One would think that Hasbro have gotten to every costume in Tony Stark’s arsenal by now, but after reading that Iron Man jointed forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy in this armor, we find it was necessary to make one more Iron Man Marvel Legends figure. The sculpt features a textured and glossy finish with a red and gold paint scheme.

Nova – He uses an all new sculpt that is not the same as the Wal-Mart exclusive Nemesis wave Nova action figure, and features a very nice sculpt that’s comic book accurate, and a very detailed paint scheme of metallic blue, told, and the red star on the helmet. The left arm got bent in the packaging and it took awhile to unbend it at the elbow hinge. We’re not sure if this is a widespread problem or an isolated incident, but keep that in mind when picking one up.

Overall:

This is an excellent wave and we look forward to the film.

Highly Recommended.
