Iceman – Marvel Legends – Juggernaut Series

 

Iceman is the second figure I am looking at from the Juggernaut Wave, or the X-Men wave as we might want to call it.

If you are going to have an X-Men wave, you should probably add in one of the original members from the 1963 comic X-Men #1. Back then, Bobby looked more like a snowball, so I am glad they went with a newer version of the figure, though it could have been fun playing with a well articulated snowman.

Iceman is molded in clear and blue parts. He is based off of Spider-Man’s body, so you know you are going to get some extra good movement from him. He has one fist and one open hand. Good for fighting and adding ice effects later.

He does not come with any extra accessories. Pegged in the back is an ice collar. It gives a little something extra to the figure for a nice touch.

Along with the ice on his back, he also has a great head sculpt that looks like his hair is ice. He also has ice effects on his forearms, hands, and lower shins. He is in bare feet, which seem about right, but feels a little funny. We don’t have a lot of super heroes running around in their bare feet. Not that Bobby needs shoes anyway.

Overall this is a pretty decent figure. It is nothing special, though the clear body is something fun. All of the inner workings of the toy are there on display. He would probably be a figure I would have been able to skip, if not for the Juggernaut arm I needed. He will take up residence on the shelf, and probably not come out to play very often. Then again, I may have to play with him just to see what he can do under some special lighting.
