Marvel Universe Thanos

Since I could no longer find the single carded Thanos and the Marvel Select version is out of reach as well I caved and bought the Thanos/Adam warlock 2 pack. So now I finally have a Thanos! And for this review I will focus of the Mad Titan.

Paint/Sculpt


It's a decent representation of the character considering the scale its in. And the colors are so much better than the single carded version.There are no splotches as far as I can see and  the gold highlights are just epic! The face sculpt is just pure awesome

Articulation


 There are plenty of articulation joints but due to the character design some of the joints are somewhat hindered. The hip joints are by far the most restricted one, since his "skirt" area hinders movement even though they are made of soft pliable plastic. The "Skirt" area just pushed the joints back to its default position. So don't expect to do any super dynamic poses where the legs are concerned. Also the ankle joints on mine a wee bit loose, not sure if this is because of mold degredation but it is there.

Accessories


This is where Thanos is shafted in this 2 pack. Unlike his box partner, Adam warlock that came with his Staff and the INFINITY GAUNTLET! Thanos gets nothing. Even the single carded version of him had the gauntlet. So this hurts Thanos a bit, but with a little creativity you can easily have Thanos wield the Infinity Gauntlet. Just do what I did, buy the crystal stickers and stick it to his gloves and Voila instant God like powers for Thanos.

Conclusion


Overall a very nice figure of Thanos and he is in scale with the Marvel Universe Galactus. Just the lack of accessories hurts him a bit.
