Marvel Legends – Dormammu Series – Enchantress and Nico Minoru

Today we are going to look at the ladies of the Dormammu Series. First up is Enchantress.

She is a fairly basic figure. Not a hard one for Hasbro to choose. Take the basic thin female body, give her a new head sculpt and a skirt, and you are done. The colors are really nice. With a good variation of green, she really shines.

Her head sculpt is almost there. I think they made her lips a little too wide, and it gives her a rather large mouth. I like the tiara they gave her, and her hair is really well done. Nothing worse than making a rather good figure, and then giving them a blob of hair, like they did with the last Jean Grey.

Since she is magical, Hasbro gave Enchantress some power effects. This time in bright neon green. We are going to have all of the colors of the rainbow here in a little bit.

To me, Nico Minoru is a much better figure than Enchantress. There is a lot more going on with her. She has a more unique look, she is built on a smaller body, and she has some interesting accessories.

Nico’s face sculpt is really well done. She is pretty, and has a little bit of a rounded face, that is pretty standard for how she looks in the comics. She has had a lot of different hair styles, most of which entail having an explosion of hair out the back of her head. I really like the style Hasbro went with, using a wild bun on top of her head, and a few stands falling to the sides of her face.

Nico comes with The Staff of One. This is really well executed. It could have easily ended up as a hunk of plastic, but what they did was really nice. They created the staff with gold plastic, and then created the purple power that surrounds it with a completely different piece. Together they are fairly heavy, and tend to pull Nico off to that side.

Nico also comes with a really special accessory. She comes with a second arm, known as her Witch Arm. In a battle, Nico lost her arm, and her life. The Staff of One brought her back to life and gave her a new arm. This new arm has a gauntlet made from part of the Staff of One. The new arm is a totally different cast than her first arm, including the gauntlet and a texture on her transparent purple hand and arm.

These two are welcome additions to my Marvel collection. It is always a welcome sight to see more females added to the ranks. Hasbro has been going in the right direction, giving us more dynamic female characters. We are seeing a lot of different body types, which is really nice. They are not all going to look like the typical super hero lady, and they shouldn’t.
