MARVEL LEGENDS - Jessica Jones Review !!!

At first I was not going to review Jessica Jones because she has already been reviewed by quite a few high profiled Youtube reviewers . However I thought " what the heck " I'll give my views and opinions anyway . I purchased this figure of Jessica Jones at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range . This is her FIRST TIME as a Marvel Legend .

As you can see Jessica is part of the Man-Thing Build-a-figure series . As a character she is also known as the lover of Luke Cage, as many of you already  have knowledge of . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging .

I'm just now noticing that Jessica's jeans have light blue faded spots just like real blue jeans . I did not notice this when I removed the figure from the packaging, but after seeing these pics I've noticed the very realistic look to denim . Very nice attention to detail with her attire and the figure itself . I think the figure very much represents the actress that portrays her in the Netflix series . This is the first female action figure I can think of with the so called " biker chic " look . With the black leather jacket , the ankle high boots, the black leather finger less gloves and somewhat faded blue jeans, all Jessica needs is to have a six inch scaled Harley Davidson or some other brand name motorcycle posed next to her . However if you do not want the " biker chic " look and just want her to look like a regular woman , you can change that too with the evidence below .

Now from a distance it looks as if she is wearing a long sleeved sweater shirt instead of a black leather jacket . I think she looks cool either way , with or without the jacket piece . You can remove the jacket piece by lifting her arms over her head and then pulling upwards on the jacket . You must take her head off first then do this . Don't worry her head easily goes back on, because if you've seen other reviewers reviews of her such as Youtuber Shartimus Prime, you'll see that many other female heads from the Marvel Legend line can fit onto her body .  To place the jacket piece back onto the figure , just repeat the process until the final step . Raise the arms over her head again, remove the head and pull the jacket piece downwards .
Above is the Man-Thing Build-a-figure piece that comes with Jessica . The upper and lower torso .
                                                          FINAL    THOUGHTS

(1) ARTICULATION  - The only restricted movement on Jessica is upward head movement because of the hair .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - Once you get her in the proper stance she stands really well .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The luxury of adding another "first time in the line figure " to the collection . Along with her realistic likeness and the " biker chic look " .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - Nothing to dislike .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURE ? - No improvements needed .

(6) GRADING  SCALE  - A Perfect 10 . Could find no flaws .

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - Now that us collectors have a civilian attired Jessica Jones figure in the collection , could a version of her in her super hero attire be close by ?
