Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Sugar Man Figure Review

Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Sugar Man 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.

Sugar Man originally comes from an alternate timeline Earth-295, where Apocalypse conquered North America and set up a system in which mutants ruled. Sugar Man was a student of Mister Sinister, who taught him genetics and science. He becomes a capable geneticist with a lab at Niagara Falls where he regularly torments his human slaves. During the assault on Apocalypse’s citadel, Sugar Man takes advantage of the chaos to escape by jumping into the M’Kraan Crystal, the “Nexus of all realities”. He arrives in the Earth-616 timeline, arriving in an unspecified location some twenty years in the past.

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!

Sugar Man is the build-a-figure in this wave, and is by far one of the best that Hasbro has done this year. Sugar Man features a great likeness as seen in the comics, with the oversized head sculpt, four arms, and two tiny legs. The head sculpt is incredible, especially the attention to the detail in the tongue, the interiors of his mouth, and overall sculpting and paint deco given to his face. The teeth look like they’re razor sharp, which looks great and spot on, and they captured his hair, horns, eyes, and eye brows perfectly. His outfit includes a red shirt, black suspenders with a belt, and blue pants. The straps and belt have silver belt buckles painted and sculpted on, which looks great. Included with Sugar Man is his hammer with the word Sugar sculpted on it, and the hammer can detach from the handle and be placed in the holder on his hip.

His articulation is in his arms, including ball hinged shoulders, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, waist rotation, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, swivel-hinged knees, and hinged and rocker ankles.

Overall, Sugar Man 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 buy every figure in this wave, and build that Sugar Man!
