The packaging is splashy & fun looking, and I liked the artwork on Thor's better than the Captain Rogers and Hope Summers for whatever reason- it looks like the same artist to me. I'm still not a huge fan of the Legends logo. Inside the package is a killer Thor action figure!
Thor has the great articulation Marvel Legends is known for: ball and hinge shoulders & hips with a swivel at the top of the thigh, bicep swivel, double jointed knees, hinge-swivel elbows, a generous abdominal swivel, and swivel/hinge ankles & wrists. Thor has a ball-jointed neck with almost no range, but long hair usually limits the movement here anyway.
This is the costume designed by Oliver Coipel for Thor's title in 2007. Redefining the look of such an iconic character has been done with mixed results the past, but I really dig the scaled armor & toned-down colors on this outfit. The cape is really well sculpted with a lightly shadowed paint app- it hinders his shoulder movement somewhat, but it's manageable. The paint throughout is simple but pretty good- gold piping running down this dark blue chest armor and around the boot tops and ankle is neatly done, and the black wash in his scaled armor looks good. His enchanted hammer, Mjolnir also has a nice black wash, revealing the worn texture in it's metal head. He holds Mjolnir securely in his hand, but also has a slender strap built into his belt to carry it.
Thor poses sturdily in a variety of heroic positions as he should, his shorter cape more easily accommodating crouched positions. Mine has sufficiently tight joints, and is a little less top heavy than my Lord of Asgard Thor. I would have appreciated a base, as he does have holes for a peg drilled into his heels, but he stands well enough. He's a hefty, fun action figure! He totally rocks!
