The packaging showcases the collectors spaceship, as he displays the alien beings and artifacts that he has collected throughout the galaxy. In this set, he has captured Cosmo from Guardians of the Galaxy, Lockjaw of The Inhumans, Howard the Duck, Moonboy. Several artifacts are also included and displayed in plastic are the Zodiac Key, Casket of Ancient Winters, and the Wand of Watoomb.

The Collector is sculpted in a standard 4″ figure sculpt with a newly tooled head, cape, handstand gauntlets, feet, belt, cloth dangling from his belt. He is painted in a blue and gold striped uniform, with hold gloves, boots, and belt. The cape is also made up of two different textures on both sides, as is the piece hanging off the belt in front. The likeness including the head sculpt is well done, and the paint apps and lines on the suit are crisp and clean looking.

Lockjaw, Cosmo, and Howard the Duck are all based on their comic book likeness and are non-articulated figures. Lockjaw’s jaw does open and close, but as far as leg movement, they can slightly move, but are not meant to be articulated. Lockjaw has the appearance of an Earth bulldog, and has the antenna on his forehead, which lights up as he teleports himself and others. The body has layers of skin rolled up and really looks great. Cosmo is an Earth dog that somehow ended up with kinetic powers and landed himself in a place called Knowhere in Outer Space. Cosmo is sculpted in an Earth spacesuit that is textured, but missing the dome. Cosmo is painted in a white suit with some light blue highlights, red, silver dome, and brown fur. Howard the Duck cannot stand on his own, which is unfortunate as he is otherwise a nice looking figure. He is sculpted in a reddish-brown suit, orange vest, white undershirt, black tie, black belt, and a dark grey hat with a black trim. The likeness on him is also well done, but we are very disappointed that he cannot stand on his own, and there are no holes on the bottom of his feet to put him on a figure stand.

Moonboy is the first 4″ flocked figure that Hasbro has done and looks incredible. He has a few points of articulation including a ball jointed head, ball-hinged shoulders, ball jointed hips, swivel wrists, and swivel-hinged ankles. There is no elbow or knee hinges, but the fact that he is flocked and not just made of plastic is thinking outside the box for the Hasbro Marvel brand team. The hair on top of his head is made of plastic, and he also has a great likeness to the comics. The Zodiac Key, Casket of Ancient Winters, and the Wand of Watoomb are also included as the artifacts in this set. The Casket of Ancient Winters is by far the best of the artifacts and is sculpted to look like a treasure chest, made of gold and has some very nice detailed sculpting and tooling.

Overall:

This is an excellent made up of characters that might not work too well at retail, and Hasbro has offered something special for fans this year looking to expand their collections. Lockjaw in particular is a welcomed surprise and a character we’ve been waiting years for Hasbro to do. Hopefully, they will get to do a 6″ build-a-figure for Lockjaw one day, as well as a 6″ Collector figure in the Marvel Legends line.

Highly Recommended for completists.
