MARVEL LEGENDS (HASBRO)
“Thor wields the mighty Stormbreaker against a terrifying new foe.”
I’m already three figures into this look into the tie-in Legends for Thor: Love and Thunder, and I haven’t yet actually looked at the Odinson himself. That seems pretty crazy. There are two of them present in this assortment, and I’m opting to look at the slightly more unique of the pair. This one, dubbed “Ravager Thor,” no doubt due to its ties to his time with the Guardians of the Galaxy, was the central piece of our first teaser image from the film, so its presence in this assortment isn’t all that much of a surprise. So, let’s look at how that turned out!
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Ravager Thor is figure 4 in the Korg Series of Marvel Legends. As noted above, he’s one of two Odinson Thors in this line-up. The other is a more traditionally armored take on the character, but it’s got no Build-A-Figure part, so I’m not in a huge rush to pick it up. This Thor is clearly in his post-workout attire, after he’s gotten back in shape following the events of Endgame. It’s based loosely on Thunderstrike’s design from the comics, which is a nice touch, and is also a nice sort of half-step between his The Dude-inspired look as Bro Thor and his more classic warrior Thor. The figure stands about 6 3/4 inches tall and he has 30 points of articulation. This Thor follows in the footsteps of the Endgame Thor, being closer to actual scale, rather than the exaggerated sizing of prior MCU Thors. The figure’s sculpt is all-new, and it’s honestly a pretty respectable one. The head in particular sports probably the best likeness we’ve gotten yet for Hemsworth. That face just really clicks in a way that previous takes haven’t. Given how many tries Hasbro’s given it, that’s definitely saying something. The body sculpt has Hemsworth’s more heroic proportions from the film, as well as a ton of texture work on the outfit. The vest is a separate, removable piece. The left arm on my figure comes out, which makes taking the vest off a lot easier, though I don’t know if that’s on purpose. The color work on this guy appears to be pretty spot on to the film design. The paint on the face is suitably life-like, and the hair gets some nice accenting, giving it that slightly dirtier look. He also gets the full detailing on his t-shirt design, which is pretty fun. Thor is packed with Stormbreaker, as well as the arm to the Korg Build-A-Figure.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Mostly, I bought this guy for the Korg piece. That said, I also did quite dig this look from its initial appearance in the teaser photo. I like how it works with the general Flash Gordon-y vibe of the first film (and, I assume, this one, too). This figure is honestly pretty fun, and he’s a neat progression from the Bro Thor figure.
