While overall I can't say these Marvel Legends Retro Collection 3.75"
has been doing is really for me being they only sport 5 points of articulation (7 if you count the swivels on the wrists), but when they announced USAgent
for wave 4
I knew I was gonna have to get it. Up until this point Captain America
from wave 1 was the only other figure from this line I have gotten, and that one I never opened.
One of the positives for this line is the price. Each figure is only around $11, and while the "Retro" packaging isn't based on any real action figure line from the past, I do like the over look of the cardbacks which have that Kenner
feel to them. If I was to collect these figures on a regular basis, I would do so with the intent of keeping them in the package for display. If your wanting something fairly cheap for the young ones then these probably would work as well.
The cardbacks are made with a fairly thick cardboard so I don't think you have to worry much about them getting easily damaged. The figures themselves are also nicely made for what they are. I had a little paint blemish on my USAgent
where some black from the mask had rubbed onto the nose of the figure. Other wise the colors are nice and vibrant, the reds and whites anyway are but they pop nicely with the black. Unfortunately going back to the minimum articulation there isn't much you can do with the figure other than have him stand there in one pose. He does come with a shield which has a clip to go around the figures wrist. I noticed there is a hole on the figures back but no peg on the shield so you can put that on the figures back which would have been nice.
In the image gallery below I show this new USAgent with other figures done including the 5" Toy Biz one, 4" Marvel Universe and 6" Marvel Legends
. This one is the smallest of the bunch.
If you know me, then you know I am a big USAgent fan which is why I had to get this one, and overall I am pretty happy with it knowing what the limitations of it are going in. I actually got two, one to open and one to display on the cardback, which again is how I would recommend you display these if your going to collect this line on a regular basis.
is available now on Amazon
with free shipping if you are a Prime Member. Check out a full IMAGE GALLERY
for this figure below.
Now I just have to wait for Hasbro to bring on the new updated Marvel Legends 6" version
which should be coming in 2022.
