A few weeks ago, I picked up my very first Marvel Legends figure. Series 4 had just hit my Wal*Mart, so I decided to get the Punisher.
I had heard such great things about this line and when I got the figure open, I wasn't dissappointed - I really loved this figure. It's in my top ten.
So, feeling so great about my purchase of the Punisher, I decided it was time to start picking up the rest of the previous assortments. I got another two the other day (Thor and Ghost Rider) and those two completely changed my opinion of the line.
When I got Ghost Rider open, I noticed that he doesn't include a hand-held chain, like pictured. I know that sometimes photos can be of prototypes and that he might not really have the chain, but I'll ask here. Is Ghost Rider supposed to come with another chain (and I don't mean the one around his chest, because that one is there)?
That was the first problem. Next was the fact that the points of articulation were so tight, I thought they were going to break right off. And on top of that, I think that the chest joint is broken, because it seems to "flop" around and not really stay in one place. Anyone else's like that?
Now, on Thor, I was really dissappointed. First, I noticed that his head was about to fall off - I can't turn it without it threatening to rip right off. Second, his cape isn't attached correctly. On mine, there is a small depression where a peg on the cape should fit. The peg is about a half and inch back on the shoulder, not in the right spot.
Is anyone else having these sorts of problems with their Marvel Legends figures? Or is it really that I only pick out the broken toys?
