Jaime Reyes’ Blue Beetle With arm cannons and removable wings, from Infinite Crisis
Availability: December 2015
Sculpt & Paint:
Jaime Reyes’ Blue Beetle measures roughly 6″ tall and is sculpted with a thin/lean body. He is based on his appearance in Infinite Earths and includes with two arm cannons and removable wings, swivel wings.
Like other figures in the line that we’ve seen so far, his tooling is 100% unique, and he has a very nicely detailed sculpt that matches the source material. His head sculpt is on the small side, and covering his entire back is the alien symbiote beetle with legs wrapping around his chest and two pincers striking upward.
His wings are on the fragile side, and can only swivel as they can only be plugged into his back. His two interchangeable arm cannons also plug into his arms after your remove his hands. The arm cannons are both nicely detailed, but they don’t fit all the way through into the peg hole.
Blue Beetle is painted in his black and blue suit, and translucent blue wings, and blue and white arm cannons.
ball-socket head, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, swivel-hinged and removable wrists, ball jointed chest, lower ab crunch, ball jointed hips, double hinged knees, and hinged-swivel rocker ankles.
2x Interchangeable arm cannons, removable wings.
Blue Beetle is an excellent figure, a great paint job, and a great sculpt. The wings should have been ball jointed as leaving them on a swivel joint is more fragile, and there also is the issue of the arm cannons not fitting all the way into the pegs.
