Marvel Legends Cull Obsidian BAF (2018)

The second series of Marvel Legends from the Avengers: Infinity War showed us some impressive figures, silly figures and yes, even some unexpected characters.  The two biggest surprises and welcomed figures were Thor – missing an eye – and the Black Knight figure.  I liked the blonde Black Widow figure but I didn’t need another one so I was going to pass.  I didn’t want the Malekith figure and the Wasp looked good – but I wasn’t a fan of that character.  Let’s be honest – that Ant-Man figure was way too goofy!  I love Paul Rudd and think he’s pretty great as Scott Lang but I can’t take the goofy look on the figure’s face.

This is where having a network of collecting friends comes in handy.  Wheeling and dealing and getting the other pieces I needed to complete this figure wasn’t as much of a pain as getting the Lizard was – but it wasn’t all that easy either.  I don’t think anyone bought the Paul Rudd Ant-Man figure!  I finally finished the BAF and I have to tell you I am not all that impressed with it.  The size and weight of this figure is pretty great – but the paint apps really make it less impressive.

The muddled green and brown paints make it look sloppy and harder to see the different features.  The face especially looks muddled to the point where it’s hard to make out the mouth from the rest of the face.  The oddly splotchy chest doesn’t look right either as most of the rest of the body is a solid dark brown.  The flat grey paints they used for the hammer and limited clothing makes it look cheap and plastic.  Overall, this impressively sized figure is sort of ruined by the paint apps.  This reminds me of the Man-Thing figure released with the Netflix series.
