Hulk Legends Wendigo

Hulk Legends Wendigo


Tom - July 30, 2008

Package Description
Ancient legends tell of an evil that falls upon only the most cursed of men. The native people of North America speak in whispers, late at night, about the terrible spirit of the WENDIGO, a ravenous creature who lives only to kill, and to feed. The strength of the creature is the strength of demons, and its endurance is that of a spirit, for in reality it is demon and spirit both. Those unlucky enough to be afflicted with the curse of the WENDIGO never know rest, and never know satisfaction, for they are doomed to hunt and to feed without cessation until a strength greater than theirs can lay them low.

Appearance

Wendigo has a new, large sculpt that looks great in part because Hasbro has returned to the use of a paint wash! Wendigo is molded in a light gray with a darker paint wash over the entire figure. The wash gives a more natural feel, as if the snowy fur was casting shadows over his body. The proportions are good, and he towers over regular sized figures as he should. Stylistically, he goes well with Toybiz figures, and the Face-Off Hulk because of the paint wash. The joints are a little ugly in some places though, particularly the torso. There is a large gap between the joint in the chest which casts a shadow on the torso.

The face sculpt is excellent, having individual teeth and hairs. There are lots of sculpted details in the form of hairs and rough areas on various areas of the figure. Wendigo has different textures and colors all over, which is fairly unique. Overall, Wendigo will look great on the shelf with Toybiz or Hasbro figures because he was excellently done.

Articulation
Wendigo has a ball jointed head and shoulders. The head doesn’t look up, but he does look down. The arms won’t go down by his side, and look odd sitting so far from his body. The elbows and knees bend about 90 degrees. The ball jointed torso will bend forward and to the side nicely, but not back very far. The ball jointed ankles move to the side fine, but move up and down hardly at all. Overall, range of motion is below average.

Poseability
Wendigo looks good, but the range of motion really hurts him. The ankle joints also make is very hard to balance him in some of his more interesting dynamic poses. Overall the poseability is less than what I though it would be from looking at pictures of the figure. He’s got a couple good figures, but there’s some wasted potential in this figure.

Final Judgment: 6
Wendigo looks great, much better than a lot of Hasbro’s offering. The range of motion is disappointing though. He’s got a couple good poses, but not enough to get him an excellent score. So Wendigo gets a score of good.
