Today's Marvel Legends HasLab Sentinel review mentioned the art on the box, so here, take a look:
You can re-create this scene yourself at home: all you'll need are six Sentinels (one with the Master Mold head), Bastion, Wolverine, Magneto, Omega Sentinel, Charles and Moira, Jean and Scott, and the female Prime Sentinel. No problem, right?
Man, you know that comics have long since left you behind when you look at a something like that box art, and you recognise nobody outside of the giant Sentinels, Cyclops, Wolverine and...is that... is that Marvel Girl?! Not Phoenix?
Like, I have no idea who the two in the centre (the one who looks like Havok, the girl with the gun) are, and if not for the review I wouldn't have realised that the guy fighting Wolverine is Bastion.
Luckily, giant mutant-hunting robots are timeless.
The central duo is Charles Xavier & Moira MacTaggert, although I don't think she's worn this outfit or used this gun in the comics. The guy in white above them is Magneto fighting Karima Shapandar. I believe the tiny floating woman on the other end is another Omega Sentinel.
Moira spent more time wearing that green dress than the one the toy's in, that's for sure...
Thank you for taking the time to clear that up.
I had a look at some older reviews and saw reviews of their action figures (along with helpful summaries of what the story behind those particular looks is), so that was also useful.
I have to admit that I felt more annoyance than anything about most of the story elements mentioned in their reviews, but since I'd long since lost interest in Marvel's comics it's not a big deal. I mean, no one should spend money on entertainment out of hate, yeah?
The downside is of course when toys come out based on recent storylines, I'm left going, "Huh?" like with that toy of Doctor Doom that's a recolour of Iron Man.
No comments about the fiasco about the loose, non-ratcheted knee joints (and about the "fix" to tighten the screws in the joint), or do you feel that horse has been beaten to death?
The knees are fine? They move smoothly, sure, but only when you want them to; they hold their pose fine right now, but who can predict the future?
Also, the box arrived Sunday morning and we had a review up less than 18 hours later. At what point has there been enough time for ANYTHING to be "beaten to death"? Most people are still waiting for their Sentinels to arrive. We could have waited a week or two to see if any endemic problems were discovered once a larger fanbase actually has it, but that would be letting you down...
I've heard quite a few people complain about the knees, but the people I know personally who bought the Sentinel didn't seem to have any issues. Is it possible it's one of those 'individual tolerance'-type issues? Or it only comes up in certain poses?
