Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Wild Child Figure Review

Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Wild Child Figure Review

 

Marvel in the 1990’s was the best decade for the brand in my personal opinion, with some unique and very compelling X-Men storylines such as Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse, and of course Jim Lee breaking boundary’s in 1991 when he launched X-Men #1. Let’s not forget that X-Men 1992 animated series that many of us reading this right now grew up watching. It was a great time to be a fan and these stories remain timeless in the hearts and souls of the fanbase.

In X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse, During the final days of Apocalypse’s rule, Wild Child was a major player when Sabretooth and Holocaust fought a brutal battle. During the fight, Sabretooth was able to pry the location of the Infinite production plant in Indianapolis from Holocaust. The Horseman, believing he had already beaten Sabretooth, was surprised when Sabretooth sent Wild Child to inform the rest of the X-Men of his plans. Wild Child delivered this key information to Rogue by touching her skin and allowing her to absorb his memories.

X-Men: Age of Apocalypse has had some figures in the past from Toybiz in the 1990’s, Toybiz Marvel Legends, and even Hasbro offered AOA Sunfire as a HTS exclusive. Jumping ahead, this storyline is finally getting the recognition it deserves and we have a full wave of figures to check out, including a Sugar Man Build-A-Figure joining the line. It’s a good time to be a fan again and 90’s Marvel lives on again in toy form!

Availability: June 2020

Wild Child is packaged in the standard single carded packaging with artwork and logo’s on the front, sides, and on the back is an image of the figure, a brief bio, and images of the rest of the wave, including Sugar Man.

Wild Child joins the Age of Apocalypse line by Hasbro and is surely one figure that you don’t want to miss out on given his popularity in the comics, especially back in the mid-1990’s. Wild Child is painted in his orange outfit, with a black collar with metallic silver circles, and at the back of the collar is a loop to insert the chain into. The figure sculpt is lean and muscular, and he has long nails on his fingers and toes for scratching and clawing at opponents. His head sculpt is the best part about the figure, with those really well done, with sculpted hair and facial hair on his face. The chain is what Sabretooth holds onto to hold him back, which was seen in the comics.

Wild Child includes the back of Sugar Man.

Overall, Wild Child is a great figure that fans will absolutely will be happy with. The attention to detail and character likeness is great to the source material, so make sure to grab him and others in the wave and build that Sugar Man figure!
