Yellow Jacket (Yellow) Review

 
 
Yellow Jacket (Yellow)
Marvel Legends (Hasbro) - Blob Series
I don't know why Hasbro doesn't have all their figures painted entirely, I see awesome paint-jobs based on the small areas they decide to loosen the purse-strings on.

The Bald Hornet stands 6 inches tall, and most of it is head, hah. It's probably just an illusion from having a smooth head, but his head looks too big. YJ has the same basic body of Captain Marvel (or Moon Knight, same thing) with different hands, right clenched, left open (like it's reaching out to something). The head is black with the Superman-chin, eyes, and yellow ear-things painted. The black on the chest, the yellow belt with gold buckle, and the chest-wasp (it's a little blurry) are also painted. The big black neck-things are stiff but flexible (lol). This figure (and the Quicksilver) looks pretty generic, I wanted new sculpts, not recycled ideas, but these figures get the job done.

The articulation is standard, including pivoting shoulder-sleeves. The fingers on the hand don't bend though, but the wrists do.

A pretty generic figure. The plastic it's made of is semi-matte to cut down on glare. Yellow Jacket comes packaged along with Blob's right leg.

Just drill the hole, no one looks at the back anyway.

cool just picked up a stand and am loving it, but upset that so few of my collection have the pegs

I''m gonna guess that they did, Hasbro is using the same molds after all (for YJ and Quicksilver). Thor doesn''t and neither does SheHulk.

i was wondering if any of the blob series figures had peg holes in their back''s for stands

Probally. Quicksilver was supposed to be released in the MODOK series(when it was the Quinjet series) but was dropped. Hasbro ran with the idea.

You could use his head to make a Hydra goon out of him since he already has the bulging eye goggles.
I was surprised that they used the same Cap Marvel / MK / Bullseye style body considering that they used a different, less articulated body for Banshee, Xorn and Ult. Wolverine. Maybe ToyBiz had the design and molds unfinished and Hasbro just went ahead and used them.
