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.
Misty Knight was my last holdout for the Rhino Series. There was a terrible production flaw with some wonky eyes, and she came with a second torso for Rhino. So it was pretty easy to pass on her, when the other figure was the outstanding Ghost Rider figure.
My local Toys R Us is closing soon, due to the company selling the land for a housing development. The Bay Area needs is another housing development like a hole in the head. Well, they put the entire store on “up to 50% off.” That means they took away all of the good merchandise and left mostly garbage or what they have a huge amount of at other stores. Luckily for me, what they have a lot of at other stores is Marvel Legends, since they stockpiled the last two waves and really warmed those pegs. A nice 30% off and a huge amount of Misty’s sitting around, and I was able to find one with good eyes, and a discount to take the sting out of having an extra torso that I cannot use.
Misty is a really well done figure. She looks fantastic. Definitely a unique figure for the Marvel shelves. She has on a great looking jumpsuit with just a tough of yellow. She has a shoulder holster where it looks like she holds extra rounds, and a gun holster on her hip. She has her robotic right hand, which should be a right arm, but we will go with the hand. Of course one of the most stand-out parts of her outfit is the huge fro of hair behind her headband, and man does it look great! It does make her head top heavy sticking out back there.
This time period is about the best time for her to be out. She is friends with Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, all future and current Netflix shows. Might we see her in the flesh? Not to mention she was a part of Heroes for Hire and the Fearless Defenders, so we could see her when Netflix gets around to producing The Defenders after their run of current Marvel shows. Add in that she was in the Fearless Defenders with Valkyrie, who was in the most recent wave of Marvel Legends, and I am surprised that she is still in the stores at all.
