I haven't been keeping up with Marvel Legends for a while since they're getting pricier over here in Malaysia. But Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is just around the corner and i couldn't help but getting on the hype train as well. So i bought Yondu, one of my fave side characters from the first movie.
It took 2 waves for them to finally make a MCU Yondu and i've gotta say, i'm pretty impressed. Hasbro has great sculptors working for them but their headsculpts rarely look like the actors. Yondu here though, is pretty on point. The paint is lackluster of course, but do a little blue weathering your self and you'll have screen accurate Yondu in 1/12 form.
Yondu comes with 2 heads, his first movie head with a smirking grin and his second movie head with a mohawk and whistling expression. Both are fantastic looking sculpts.
But not just the headsculpts, the details on the body and trenchcoat are pretty incredible as well.
Yondu of course, comes with his remote controlled arrow, the Yaka arrow. It's made of soft rubber and fits into the holster pretty well.
Yondu has all the articulations a typical modern Marvel Legends has but because of the coat, his left leg is abit limited.
Too bad i sold my GOTG 1 figures when i was moving...
Yondu looks great, it's 1 of the few figures that manages to capture the likeness of the actor so perfectly. And the best part? No soft rubbery joints like the first movie figures!
Anyway, thanks for viewing!
