Does The Helmet On The 3.75" Marvel Universe Juggernaut Figure Come Off?


Jay Cochran - May 18, 2010
For those of you who have been wondering if the helmet on the upcoming 3.75" Marvel Universe Juggernaut figure comes off or not, wonder no more. Thanks to Marvelous News reader Robb we have your answer. Technically the answer is yes, but there is a a catch. The figure's head is attached to the helmet so when you pull the helmet off, the head pops off with it. See the image below.

You can probably kit-bash a different head without a helmet on easily enough, but for the actual figure itself, it would appear a removable helmet is not a feature Hasbro had really intended for this one. Thanks to Robb for the heads up.

I don't know. Juggernaut's helmet is so weirdly shaped that I think it's hard (and that past figures have proved) to make it removable without either the head or helmet itself (or both) looking ridiculous.

I agree with that... either they would have had to squish down the head, or they would have had to make the helmet too tall.

the actual shape of his helmet doesn't realistically allow for a normal head to be under.. its like his head magically sinks into his shoulders when he puts his helmet on.. then when he takes it off he grows his neck back

Thanks for warning us, Robb! I can totally see myself popping his head off when I got it. Everyone knows that the X-Men always defeated Juggy by finding a way to remove the helmet and then having a telepath blast him!

Shucks! Remember, just one little detail like this can make a nice figure phenomenal... or sadly in this case, vice versa.

Still glad we're getting him though.

Since knocking the helmet is out now they'll have to get his pants down and ram a boot up his arse.

If this figure comes with removable pants but no removable helmet, I'll be SOOOO mad.

I think if they didn't do it that way, they would have had a hard time getting it to stay ON.

anyways, this isn't a big problem for me.. but those fugly thigh-cuts sure are.

Actually no they wouldn't. All they would have needed to do is make a helmet within the big helmet that fit the head more like a GI Joe helmet. Then when you turn the big helmet the little one would turn the head. If they set it up right you wouldn't even be able to tell there was a little helmet inside.

I'm a little let down by it, but still happy to be getting the figure. Now I just gotta keep my fingers crossed that I can find it at retail

I smell a running change!

this would be nice :D

As much as I wanted the helmet to be removable and thought that it would be, it doesn't make that much of a difference to me. The MU Juggy looks tons better than the MLSD or SMC version. Maybe only topped by the forthcoming MS version. It looks very comic accurate.

I doubt you could just get some thick Juggernaut-sized to fit under that helmet and look decent. Likely one day they'll do a Juggy with just a head and no helmet.

Marvel Legends X3 Juggernaught.

What I find truely sad about the boxheadernaught is that there are several GI Joe heads that could have been used, (I know the teams don't collaburate but to be honest that is just stupid) and I think that they could also fit in the box they have for his square head. I'll let you all know for sure when I get mine.

Well I guess I'll be popping his faux head out, and replacing it w/ the head off of one of the pilots for the RoC small blue jet.
