Marvel Legends Hela Review !!!

This action figure of Hela is based on the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie . This is also Hela's first time as a Marvel Legend . I purchased this figure of Hela at a local Walgreens for around the $ 19.99 price range .

I love the light blues on this series' packaging . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging.

As you can see extra clear packaging has been packed with the figure to hold extra accessories. This is my first time ever seeing this. She comes with the left arm and hammer like weapon of this series gladiator Hulk build-a-figure, in which this version of the Hulk is also in the Thor Ragnarok movie . The main surprise is how tall Hela is . The character is listed at an even seven feet tall, so this statistic makes her action figure quite tall as well . Besides the Hulk's accessories, Hela's accessories include an alternate unmasked head and her own weapon, which I do not know what it is called or what is it . It looks like some magical weapon in my opinion, a combination of a sword and magic wand . If you pay attention, you'll notice there are quite a few differences between Hela's two heads . On the masked head her eyes are concealed, but are clearly shown on the unmasked head . Also the masked head has on green lipstick , whereas the unmasked head either has pink natural lips or no lipstick at all . And finally the mask does a great job of hiding her long black shoulder length hair. Whereas it is clearly visible on the unmasked head . Overall I love this figure, I just have one complaint about her which is her left leg seems to be kind of loose. Not much tightness . However this could just be my copy of the Hela figure and hopefully not them all . Now for a look at Hela without the cape .

One of the best things about this figure is that there are various multiple ways you can display her . With or without the cape, with masked or unmasked head , masked head no cape, unmasked head no cape,etc . The cape itself is a nice soft rubbery light weight rubbery plastic. It does not make Hela top heavy and it easily inserts into a hole at the bottom of her neck . Now for some size comparison shots to other Marvel Legends .

As you can see Hela towers over male characters such as Captain America among others in height . In the second size comparison pic not only do you see Hela towering over the other women but they all also share the same similar green attire clothing scheme . Just what is it with Marvel and women in green , lol ( laugh out loud ) ?  And finally , a comparison of Hela to fellow Asgardian the Enchantress . Enchantress is listed at a height of 6"3 , so Hasbro did a great job of making Hela's 7 foot height not only tower over her but everyone else .
                                                                 FINAL    THOUGHTS  

(1) ARTICULATION  LIMITATIONS  - Hela's upward head movement is limited with the unmasked head because the shoulder length hair restricts it. However with the masked head she can easily look upward . No other limitations .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - Hela stands fine once you get her in the proper standing pose .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The luxury of having another Thor villain to the collection . I love the multiple display options with Hela and she just flat out looks cool .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - Her loose left leg, but it could just be my copy of the figure and not them all .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? - Tighten the loose leg .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - If I was just judging only MY copy of Hela , I would give her a 9.0 because of the loose left leg . If I'm just judging the Hela figure overall , ignoring my copy , I give her a Perfect Ten .

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - If your're a huge fan of Thor, you'll be glad to learn that more Asgardians and Thor characters are on their way to join Hela .
