Marvel Legends Thor Ragnarok Valkyrie

Target had marked down the Thor/Valkyrie 2 pack, but I already had the single carded Thor, which had that cool Ragnarok helmet, so I picked this Valkyrie up loose on eBay. I loved the character portrayed in the movie by actress Tessa Thompson, who shared a warm relationship with Hulk, but had to work past her painful defeat in the past by Hela to assist Thor in defeating her once and for all. The sculpt and paint on this figure is commendable, but falls short in the accessories. I like the sword, but it's hand is woefully too small for Valkyrie to get a grip on. We are given a sheath to house the slender blade, but no peg to stow it. We also have two irremovable daggers molded onto the outer thighs- I'm not a fan of this on my modern action figures, and I feel we should be getting more extras with these 2-packs.

Still, if you can get her for south of ten bucks, and are a fan of Thor Ragnarok, she does make a good companion for your Thor or Gladiator Hulk. The metallic finish on her armor and ponytail are great, and the facial print/sculpt captures the actress' likeness well . I felt Ragnarok was one of the best Marvel movies, and really conveyed the zany, magic/cosmic side of Marvel I've enjoyed reading.

Valkyrie will make a great companion figure for my Ragnarok Thor and Gladiator Hulk...

More Later- Make It FUN!
