The Box is your standard new Hasbro Marvel Legends single 6” figure package except this box is made for 3 figures. It’s a clean look with a massive clear front window displaying all three figures of Coulson, Fury, and Hill perfectly.
The figures are sculpted to resemble the actual characters portrayed in the Avengers movie and they indeed did a great job capturing that effect. Agent Coulson with his mild tempered attitude no doubt comes out in this figure with his smirky questionable face. Agent Hill doesn’t have much of that wow factor going on as she really wasn’t that much wow in the film, so to that extent, Hasbro has made her as true to the film as she could be. Agent Fury, on the other hand, is incredible, from his facial scars to his long coat and down to his boots he is made appealingly well.
Each character has wonderful flesh colored tones as opposed to some of the recent Legends that came out. Seems to me that Hasbro had forgotten that humans have what they call “blood" in their bodies to produce a good color flesh tone. However, in this 3 pack, Hasbro has remembered. Outfits are fairly dark as expected but that doesn’t deter from the little color that has been added to indicate a very well paint job.
Their articulation is as expected with movement at every joint possible. Articulation is at the head, neck, waist, torso, arms, elbow, double joints at the knee, foot rotation and wrist. Again the articulation is as expected when it comes to the Marvel Legends brand. Job well done.
Well, not much going on here for the accessory department. Agent Coulson comes with his very own weapon, remember that huge phaser looking shotgun he blasted Loki with? Yeah, that one! He also comes with another head. Just when you thought Agent Coulson wasn’t cool looking enough already, his second head has him wearing his infamous MIB shades. Agent Fury, with his holsters around his chest and leg, the two pistols have a few spots to play hide and seek. And Agent Hill, a bit disappointing as she comes with two pistols as well, however, they are joined to her hip. Absolutely no removing of these puppies. Yet again, what would one think when it comes to an out of the spotlight character as herself. Too bad, every guy loves a woman who can carry a pistol.
Overall, these figures are a great addition to any action figure collectors Avengers collecting line and worth the buy at $49.99.
