Marvel Legends Enchantress Review !!!

Enchantress is a character I have been wanting a Marvel Legend figure of ever since the Toybiz days. Now that she's finally here, I am pleased with the job Hasbro has done to her. She was originally released in a box set called " The Raft" with other figures, then got released individually later on her own . If you want comparison shots of both of the Enchantress figures, than you can go to Youtube and look at one of Shartimus Prime's videos as he has and compares both Enchantress figures . I purchased this figure of Enchantress at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range . I do not own the version from The Raft box set .

As you can see the mini bio hints at either Nico Mindru or Enchantress being good or evil. For those of you whom may not know, Enchantress is the villain . Now for a look at the Enchantress out of the packaging .

My only complaint about this Enchantress figure is not so much the figure itself, but rather the figure is in scale with her physical attributes description . Marvel lists her at 6"3 , weighing 450 pounds.  Why is she so heavy ? Because she is an Asgardian , form the same place as Thor and Loki among others. Then again, that may be her Asgard weight . Her Earth weight may be 150 or something. This is real science, because if we all lived on Jupiter we would be a lot heavier on there than here on Earth, because of the gravity . So I'm not so sure that the action figure fits her weight wise however the height is perfect. This Enchantress figure is tall, one of the tallest female Marvel Legend figures ever .
As I mentioned earlier, I've always wanted her as a Marvel Legend and I'm very pleased. She looks great. I love the blend of the different shades of green in her attire . Her tiara is glued to her head, however I believe it can be removed by putting her head in some boiling water, then you can just pry it loose. The skirt piece can move around and can be removed if you wish with some scissors .Hasbro is doing a better job now with making female figures with softer hair now than in the past. Enchantress can easily turn her head left and right and slightly downward as her hair will bend with her head movement. Her upward head movement is somewhat limited however. For those of you whom may have not figured it out yet, it has been proven by other reviewers that the Enchantress shares the same body with Hasbro's Scarlett Witch figure that was released over a year ago .
The Scarlet Witch figure is definitely too tall . Marvel has Scarlet Witch listed at 5"7 and weighing about 132 pounds. So of these two sharing the same body, this particular mold should of only been used for the Enchantress , since she is tall anyway. Not only do these two share the same body, but also the same magical projectile accessory pieces, to go along with a previously released Dr. strange figure.
This picture does not really do the accessories justice. If you look closely, even though they are the same accessory pieces, Dr. Strange's pieces are slightly darker than the Enchantress' pieces. Same color but Strange's appears slightly darker, whereas Scarlet Witch has the pink versions.
                                                         FINAL   THOUGHTS 

(1) ARTICULATION - Excellent all around except for upward head movement. Slightly hindered somewhat .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY  - It is not easy to make her stand because of the high heels, however if you position one of the upper thighs at an angle along with slightly moving one leg in front of the other, she'll be able to stand really well on hard surfaces such as wood and plastic. However her stance is perfect once you position her stance a certain way.

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - She looks great . I love the green colors in her attire and the option to leave on or remove the skirt piece for multiple display options. Also it's nice to have another member of Marvel's " Masters of Evil" characters in the collection .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - There is nothing that I dislike about this figure .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURE ? - Make it easier for her to stand up without falling.

(6) GRADING  SCALE - Despite the problem with getting her to stand properly, a perfect stance can be accomplished and when it is she stands great . So therefore a Perfect 10 is legit. Plus I've been wanting an Marvel Legend of her for a long time anyway which increases the score . I am no longer bothered by that height/ weight issue between the character and the figure, because the rules of science explains that as I've mentioned earlier in this article.

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - I love the luxury and feeling of closure of finally owning a figure I've been wanting for over ten or more years . Then being pleased with it when it finally arrives. The Enchantress is well worth the wait .
