Marvel Legends - Skullbuster Review !!!

When I first saw Skullbuster I thought he was a variant version of the Captain America villain known as Crossbones . I immediately thought it was Crossbones with a different look. I'm the type of browser that view the pictures of an article first before reading the dialogue . Then once I read the dialogue and discovered that I was looking at a character I knew nothing about , bout thought he was really cool looking . This was back when Skullbuster was first revealed at one of the Cons or Toy fairs.  I purchased this figure of Skullbuster at a local Walgreens for around the $ 19.99 price range . You can purchase Skullbuster thru my Entertainment Earth Affiliate link by clicking the following link ------    Purchase Skullbuster here !!!

If you're having difficulty seeing the bio dialogue it says " An enemy of the X-Men , the Skullbuster is a member of the villainous gang called the Reavers .

 I really love this action figure despite not knowing of his existence at first . Skullbuster is really cool . Even though his body is a re-used mold of Deathlok , he feels and looks like a completely new figure . There are quite a bit of fun features to like about this figure . The spikes on his right shoulder pad, along with his cybernetic look  are nice features. You also have the luxury of displaying him with his gun in hand or in his holster .
From a distance it looks as if Skullbuster is wearing a mask , however when zooming up close you can clearly see that his face is painted with makeup , or warpaint , depending on how you view the situation .
As you can see Skullbuster stands a little over six inches tall .

This head packaged with Skullbuster is that of his Reavers teammate known as Murray Reese . The goggles are movable and can be removed . When I first saw this head I was thinking to myself that it may be the real face of the Skullbuster. I did not know I was looking at the head of a completely different character . I discovered the real identity of the head by watching Shartimus Prime's Youtube Review on Skullbuster. Another great luxury of the extra head other than belonging to another character is that the goggles can be placed onto the head of another figure if that is your wish . If you look around the web, most collectors suggest using the body of the Marvel Legends Nuke figure for the head of Murray Reese . 
As you can see Skullbuster is armed to the teeth. Just look at all of those golden bullets. Plus he has lots of cartridges for his gun . I also love how those gold bullets , from a distance actually resembles real bullets . They actually look like real shiny metal bullets due to the lighting from the camera flash .

                                          FINAL   THOUGHTS  

( 1 ) ARTICULATION  LIMITS  - Excellent all around articulation .

( 2 ) STANDING  ABILITY -  Stands very well with good balance.

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The spikes on his right shoulder pad , his cybernetic features especially the hands. I love the vest along with it's features such as the cartridges. I like that's it's removable with the luxury of placing it onto other figures . Plus the extra Murray Reese head is great to have .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE  ? - No dislikes .

(5) WHAT  SHOULD  BE  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? -No improvements needed .

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

(7)  FINAL  ANALYSIS  -  Hopefully the rest of the Reavers will be on their way soon .
