Conan / Wrarrl
Legendary Comic Book Heroes (Marvel Toys) - 2-Packs
[This is for Conan]
Because I know someone is going to make the snarky remark, I consider LCBH and Marvel Legends figures the same thing, for reasons that are obvious if you've ever owned a LCBH and ML figure at the same time.
Our barbarous barbarian stands over 6.25 inches and is solidly constructed. This is one of the few Marvel Legends-style figures where the muscles are believable, not some freaky abstract sculpt like Black Panther or Bishop. I thought the hips were going to be gross, but they actually look natural once you straighten-out the legs. Only problems I have with the sculpting is the weak-looking ankles (they're scrawny in comparison to the rest of the body) and the straps sculpted on the right thigh. I wanted a bare-minimum Conan, no extras on him, but we can't be picky I guess, the sculpted manacles don't bother me at least. I'm amazed that the people hired to paint Conan figs actually seemed to know what they were doing! The dry-brushing on the equipment and shading on the muscles far exceeds anything I could imagine. This paint-job isn't the greatest thing ever, but it's just so much better than the ML figures had that it deserves a special mention. Of course, this could just be the case with this particular figure, hah. Accessories include: Axe w/chain, sword w/scabbard, and a bear/wolfskin cloak. The scabbard's strap is too long and hangs loosely, but it's like that to fit over the cloak, which isn't meant to be removable. You can tug it off but it's going to leave two holes in Conan's back. Another thing, the "skirt" is well-painted but it bugs me. I know it's comic accurate but I like the crotch-pouch Conan a lot more, luckily its easy to take-off and replace.
Articulation is everywhere you expect it to be, it's only missing in the fingers, I'm assuming that's so he can hold the heavy weapons easily. The head can face any direction but it's kind of a hassle to face upwards because the hair gets in the way. Conan is huge though, he's used to looking down at people anyway :P
You can only get Conan in a 2-pack with Wrarrl, which is well-worth the 20 bucks because Wrarrl is frikkin' sweet as well.
