|Hydra Soldier - Variant|
||Wave 3 - Brood Queen Series
||Front Left Leg
There was a time when the cry "Hail Hydra" brought a chill to even the most hardened hero’s heart, and a sweat to his brow. Unfortunately for this ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world, that time has passed. The death of its founder, Wolfgang von Strucker, years ago left it badly weakened. Huge and highly centralized, Hydra lacks the flexibility to really effectively terrorize the world, and instead concentrates its resources on occasionally executing grand, but largely symbolic attacks. As the world’s heroes have grown ever more bulletproof, powerful and organized, Hydra has lagged behind, still relying on these conventional soldiers.
This figure looks like a generic Hydra soldier, which is to be expected. There are a few nice little details in the sculpt that are nice. There are buckles and straps on the boots, pouches and bullets on the belt, an “H” on the back of his head, an even a Hydra emblem on the rifle. On the variant, there are also grooves sculpted in for the individual teeth (although it looks like he has large spaces between teeth). However, the lack of details in the large fields of dark green is what makes the figure look dull in color and texture. The bright yellow adds color, but the paint edges are not always distinct. This adds to the plastic feel of the figure. The open mouth does make the variant look a little better, but I really think it’s the different eye shape that makes the variant look better than the regular version. The variant’s eyes don’t bulge out as much, and the more pointed look adds to the menacing factor.
