If you’ve seen the movie, like me, opening night then I know you’ll want to discuss it!  Leave a message below – anyone who doesn’t want to get spoilers, don’t read the comments! – let me know what you thought of the movie!

Avengers: Infinity War BAF Thanos (2018)

With Avengers: Infinity War hitting tomorrow let’s take a look at the new Thanos Build-a-Figure from the Marvel Legends line.  The last figure was from the Age of Ultron movie and it was before we really got a shot of what the Mad Titan really looked like.  Now, with a more clear vision Marvel has finally shown us what to expect.  A lot of people on the interwebs have been complaining that Thanos’ head looks too much like a California Raisin.  I am here to say… those people are totally correct – I hate to say it but t truly does look so much like a California Raisin as I was putting this guy together “I heard it Through the Grape Vine” was playing in my head.

The last Thanos, while not perfect, was still pretty great.  So much so that I am looking forward to getting the WalMart exclusive that is a basic repaint (and comes with a gauntlet).  Still, this new BAF is larger and sculpted to look much like the movie version of Thanos – but that’s where the real compliments end.

The look of this figure is too drab and the skin has no texture so it looks very plastic.  With the gold highlights there was a regal, almost arrogant look which fit Thanos perfectly.  Here he is almost monotone.  He and his leather pants looks like he’s ready to double date with Ross Gellar…

I’m not saying that people shouldn’t buy all the figures to complete this Thanos – but I will say this… if you’re not a completest and want a great Thanos figure then buy the Marvel Select.  Still one of the best Thanos figures to grace the shelves ever.  Plus the MS comes with Death – so… bonus!
