Marvel Legends – Human Torch – Walgreens Exclusive

My 250th Marvel Legends figure is none other than Johnny Storm. The continuing exclusives from Walgreens is focusing on the Fantastic 4. We now have Namor, The Invisible Woman (Sue Storm), and now The Human Torch (Johnny Storm).

The Human Torch is a good figure. He is a solid buck with good articulation. There is not a lot to him, since he is flaming, so therefore not heavily clothed.

He has flaming forearms, and a new head sculpt. There are removable flame effects that sit on his shoulders and a small post that goes into his back.

He comes with a flaming fist, as well as an open hand. These are great for posing and photo shoots.

 

He also comes with two fists that are not flaming. They are needed as regular fists.

Add on some flames, and you have a good number of accessories for this guy.

The team keeps growing. Now with three figures, the other two are on their way next year.

I think this is a solid outing for The Human Torch, and he looks great hanging with his sister. This is going to be great when the whole team is together.

The Invisible Woman – Sue Richards – Marvel Legends (Walgreens Exclusive)

Sue Richards, Sue Storm, The Invisible Woman. Whatever you call her, the newest entry in the Walgreens exclusive figures from Marvel Legends is now a trend. First we had Namor, and now The Invisible Woman. The rest of the Fantastic 4 cannot be far behind.

Sue comes with H.E.R.B.I.E. While not an accessory people were dying for, it is a nice accessory none the less. We could very well have gotten Sue with nothing more than her alternate hand. It is nice that they threw something else in there for us. He will help all of the toy photographers her in the future as they build their Fantastic 4 sets.

Sue is well done. She is one of the newer body types that have melded form and function. Gone are the skinny limbs with the high-heeled boots. We get a much more usable pair of feet that not only look more realistic, but help the ladies stand on the shelf.

She has a fantastic head sculpt. She is beautiful. I am hoping this is the current trend, since we have now had a lot of really well done female heads recently that have been far and above some of the heads that have come out before.

I am really happy with this Sue, and I am looking forward to what is coming next with the Fantastic 4. Unlike the likes of Walmart, Walgreens seems serious about getting the figures out to the people. They may not be the fastest at getting the figures on the shelf, but they do get out there eventually. The reasons for me to go to Walgreens keeps growing. Marvel Legends, Transformers, and MiniMates. Keep it up Walgreens.
