Marvel Legends 11
Scarlet Witch gallery

This is not so much a review, but just a quick gallery of the Marvel Legends series 11 Scarlet Witch figure. I didn't even bother to control lighting so do excuse the inconsistencies.

Apparently this figure, originally scheduled for mass release in ML 11, is now defunct. At first she was subject to a slight delay due to some retooling issues. Now, as far as I can gather, the factory Toybiz used to manufacture her has gone kaput, so whatever quantity that has made it out so far is all that's being made.

Here in Singapore, we got Scarley with the regular assortment of series 11 (sold in sets only, and currently out of stock, so don't bug me for one!). We thought she'd be like Mystique and every other one-per-case figure in Marvel Legends, but due to the unforeseen circumstances, it looks like we've got something pretty exclusive.

No news on how many of these were produced, but Toybiz's product manager Jesse Falcon has reassured fans that Wanda WILL return to the Marvel Legends series of toys, some time in the future. Hopefully with a better sculpt..

Personally, I think that's a good move, because this figure isn't pretty. In a nutshell, it doesn't have very good articulation, the head is oversized (and looks like "Oh. My. God" Janice from FRIENDS), and the body looks more like a skinny guy with water-balloon boobs than a sexy superheroine.

So here's a quick look at what you've missed (it's not much!).

         
     

Close up of her face. Note the spotty paint application. It's common to all the Scarlet witches I've seen. Now the nose-rub, that's just on mine. And a few others. Argh, I did say that this figure has QC problems.

Her hips go clickity clack like most of the other recent Marvel Legend figures. So you don't really have much free range of motion. It's one position or the next. She also has no mid-thigh swivel joints, so she can't sit down right. In my opinion it's worse than the classic but dreaded V-cut.

I do like the new under-boob cut, which slides from side to side.

     
    

Some pics of Scarlet with the movie Invisible Woman. They both seem to share a similar body design, but the results are worlds apart. The IW is far more streamlined, with shapely curves and useful articulation. She can sit! The quality of the plastic also feels better.

The only IW I have handy is an all-clear one that I've coloured for customizing purposes. So sue me. (badabump!).

Note the differences between the bootylicious Alba butt and the flat as a deck Wanda man-butt.



  
   

Wanda's ride. It's nicely detailed, but is as uninteresting as they come.
