Marvel Legends Mr. Sinister - Who Did It Better? Hasbro Or Toy Biz

Marvel Legends Mr. Sinister - Who Did It Better? Hasbro Or Toy Biz


Jay Cochran - August 13, 2019
Today I do a comparison of the classic Marvel Legends Mr. Sinister figure from Toy Biz and the new modern Hasbro version.



Check out images for both figures below in our GALLERY and be sure to share your own thoughts on which figure you think wins the day below in the COMMENTS SECTION.

I have the Toybiz Marvel Legends and haven't gotten the Hasbro version and while I think the Toybiz one is great and it holds up I may replace since the new one doesn't have those awful articulated fingers.

I doesn't really matter to me whether Hasbro or Toybiz did a better job with a character cuz I have no Toybiz figures so I always just get the Hasbro ones. Plus most of Hasbro's figures are better than Toybiz's anyway.

I own both, I like the Toy Biz version better.

This is one of those times where Hasbro just nails it out of the park on an already stellar figure and one of my all time favorites from toybiz. Says alot about the new figure if it can dethrone such a great figure but this new one really makes features on the old one stand out as bad. beautiful piece of plastic.

Hasbro definitely takes the dub in this case.

There's no question here for me. Hasbro seems better in every conceivable way. The otherone, as usual for Toy Biz, suffers from a deeply weirdheadsculpt, more like a caricature than a faithful portrait.

Yeah, I guess you are right that it is a little weird. I still prefer it. It looks creepy and evil, dare I say sinister? :ph34r:

The black lips are too weird for me on the Hasbro one. And what's with the different blues on his outfit. Is that how he looked?

I only own the Toy-biz version so I am going on the pictures only.

I don't like the wrists on the TB version, but I like everything else about it. The wrists really should rotate, but he looks likea really bad dude. It has a realistic appearance.I like the size of the figure compared to the rest. He's tall and imposing.

Going off of the pictures, the Hasbro version has one clear advantage, at least to me, and that is accuracy to the early appearances. Sinister had that weird make-up look in his early appearances. I don't prefer that personally, but I like that they went that direction because I like the vintage accuracy. I don't really like his cape.

For me, the TB version is great and doesn't need a replacement but I'm glad for everyone who gets him and likes him.

I have both as well. By far one of Toybiz's best work. I still like the proportions on the TB one but I'll have to say the Hasbro version edges TB by a hair, particularly for the hip joints and darker color scheme. I wish they had included a "serious" alt head sculpt though.
