Marvel Legends 2012: Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider.  Seriously... Kick... Ass... Figure...

I'm going to do this short and sweet.

Lets hit the points.

Sculpt: Love it...  He is imposing and exudes Vengeance.  Wish he had a weapon of some kind.  (Is this version of Ghost Rider supposed to have a weapon?)  The flames on his head are an add on kinda like a crown.  Glued on but not sculpted to his cranium.  The chest piece is multiple pieces.  The shoulders glued on to the main piece.  Very, very rubbery chest.  His belt/chains are rubbery as well and float loosely around his waist.

Paint: Nice Blue glow effect.  Good choices and application.  Looks like a biker from hell... on fire..  blue fire..

Articulation: Not terrible.  His shoulders caused me a little grief in spinning to get his clothes off.  Dirty me.  Mostly very well done.  Fairly standard for this wave of Marvel Legends.  Double elbows and knees.  Wrist turn and bend.  Ball shoulders and hips.  Good pose-ability.  Holds a guitar well.  What more do you want from a KISS backup singer?

Package: Well done.  Nice, vibrant, and sure looks nice on the shelf.  Or in my case, the trash can .  Free them from their plastic prisons!!  #FreeYourPlastic!

I'm a believer.  If Marvel Legend can keep the level of quality, I will buy the most obscure of characters.  And for some reason I really want a Squirrel Girl with Luke Cage's kid.  Babysitter action!

  1. If we follow your logic, then you could buy replica watches sale and have it painted another color and it suddenly becomes a rolex watches. While it obvious that this rado replica is going to be geared towards the mainland UK market, I think this can be seen as a viable men replica watches sale in the UK market as well. Rolex takes particular care in ensuring that all the stones on a given watch are of the same hue, using a combination of a long sorting process carried out by hand, stone by stone in the Rolex workshops. The dial is slightly different, with Rolex choosing a glossy replica watches finish as opposed to the matte dial on the rolex watches model. This watch costs a lot more than a tie, but I see it much the same way. The stones are absolutely perfect and that adds a level of confidence to the hublot replica of the multi colored arrangement.
