Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Mockingbird and Agent 13 – Marvel Legends Red Skull Wave

Today we are going to look at the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ladies that share the packaging and name.

Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse

Bobbi Morse is one of my favorite characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so when I saw we were getting a Mockingbird figure in Marvel Legends, I was super excited. And this figure does not disappoint.

She has on her classic black and white color scheme with a newer design for the outfit overall. She has the buttons down the front that give an interesting look. She is wearing glasses with a yellow tint. They are removable, and she looks good without them too. Down on her legs, she has on knee pads and shin guards. Something I am sure she is happy to wear. Nothing like going undercover to a ball and having your legs look like they were in a battle hours before.

She has great articulation overall. I was happy to see that she has some head movement despite having long hair. I would love to see Hasbro give us the double jointed elbows we see on the male figures. The single joint is just a little hindering to get some poses going.

She has nice wide feet with her boots. Something we will see is a problem with Agent 13.

Sharon “Agent 13” Carter – 

Sharon Carter is almost a good figure. They unfortunately went with the tiny female body that hints at being great, but lacks something. We used to get female Marvel figures that were waify and way too skinny. We have seen great examples of females with stronger bodies without taking away the femininity of the figure. Mockingbird is a great example of that.

With Agent 13, she is very skinny, she is a bit limited. Mostly, since she is skinny, she is using the lower limbs I hate. The legs are well designed, and look good, but they are paired with the high-heeled boot that not only looks wrong, it creates a tiny footprint for the figure to stand on, which makes it impossible to get some poses.

She is wearing all white. She does have some detailing paint applied. She has a silver zipper and her belt and holsters are black and silver. She has two guns in her holsters, but they are molded into place, which really stinks. To go along with that, she has a really weird looking gun. They could have given her open holsters and a pair of handguns, and it would have made a ton of difference.

When the two “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” are standing together, it is clear why they went with two different body types.  There is no confusing these two ladies.   They are very different, and look like they have quite different jobs within S.H.I.E.L.D.

This is becoming a formidable team.  Next up are the bad guys.  Cap and the ladies might need a little help going up against this team of foes.
