Hasbro has finally given what fans have been clamoring for since the arrival of Netflix’s Marvel series, branded as the Marvel Knights series with a Man Thing as the build-a-figure. The series includes MCU Daredevil, MCU Punisher, MCU Jessica Jones, MCU Elektra, Blade and Bullseye; all packed with a piece to build a hulking sized Man Thing.
Jessica Jones a.k.a the failed superhero Jewel portrayed by actress Krysten Ritter on Netflix’s series Jessica Jones. The series picks up after her failed attempt at being a superhero and decided to become a private detective and an alcoholic. Jessica is up against Kilgrave, a man from her past, who mind controlled and traumatized Jessica giving her PTSD. Jessica states “My greatest weakness? Occasionally, I give a damn. And Kilgrave knows it.”
Jessica Jones debuted in Alias #1, in November 2001, 14 years later in November 2015 the MCU version was introduced on Netflix’s Jessica Jones. She stands just at 6″ tall. Jessica’s figure is based off her MCU appearance, wearing her black leather jacket.
Jessica Jones comes with her black leather jacket which is removable (at least the vest portion of it). She’s wearing a black shirt, gloves and boots and a pair of jeans. Her jeans are blue with a nice paint wash applied to them. She uses the same body as Maryjane Watson with a new head and new arms. The figure also makes good use of Kate Bishop’s boot tops. The likeness to Krysten Ritter is pretty decent, the sculpt is definitely there and from most angles looks just like her, but I do think that the figure would benefit from darker circles under her eyes. She comes with the torso of Man Thing as her build-a-figure piece. The figure comes with no accessories of her own, which is one of the only downfalls of this figure, I feel she should have come with at least a camera, some alternative hands and possibly a scarf.
Jessica Jones has the standard Marvel Legends articulation. Her articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball jointed shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed chest, ball jointed hips with limited range of motion, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, and swivel-hinged ankles.
As of right now this is the only Marvel Legends Jessica Jones figure available. The comic version of the character will first see release 3.75″ scale very shortly and followed by the recently announced Amazon exclusive Defenders 4pk with 6″ comic version of Jewel. Jessica Jones is my favorite of the Netflix series, making her the figure I was looking forward to the most out of this line and I’m glad to add her to my collection.
