Bluesparrow Reviews ML 10 – Part 3 of 3

Monday, September 12, 2005

In the final segment of his Marvel Legends Series 10 reviews, guest reviewer bluesparrow gives us a look at the "build a figure" bonus figure that you can assemble from parts included with the individual figures in the series. (For his reviews of those figures check out Part 1 and Part 2.)

We tried writing this review ourselves, but the best we could come up with was "Awesome!" There’s that, plus we don’t actually have a Sentinel figure yet. Read on!

Excellent. You’re going to read the word "best" fairly often in this review, and we’re going to start here. Every cable, every metal plate, the textures, the proportions, EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of this figure is sublime. There is nothing to dislike here.

Excellent. Wow. Not sure what’s plastic, and what’s paint on this figure. Every part of him is covered with a weathered-looking metal sheen.

Excellent. As much articulation as a regular 6" ML, he isn’t limited by a skirt like Galactus is, and is thus that much more of an action toy. He has a swivel/hinge neck without much give on the up/down motion, ball shoulders, shoulder-pad hinges, bicep swivels, double-hinged elbows, ball wrists, ab swivel/hinge, ball waist, ball hips, thigh swivels below the ball hips, double-hinged knees, limited articulation ankle swivels. So around 25-29 POA.

Excellent. I rate these by what they need, and frankly as an accessory himself the Sentinel is good enough without any accessories, but Toybiz gave us a pair of tentacles for him anyway. They’re exactly the same as those that come with Omega Red, but I won’t quibble.

Excellent. Best figure ever released in Marvel Legends? YES.
