While it took the better part of a year for the Human Torch to reunite with his sister, there’s going to be no such delay for the next Walgreens Marvel Legends Fantastic Four exclusive figure hitting stores! Just weeks after Johnny Storm began hitting stores in mass, I’ve received several reports, photos, and even some great impressions of the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends Medusa figure, which is arriving at retail now in the U.S.!
Luckily, I have lots of great readers to pick up the slack for me, including Chad, Julio and bmanhk! bman sent in photos of Medusa from Hong Kong at the start of the month, whereas Julio and Chad just found her domestically this week in Texas!
“I have no reference to the SDCC Medusa but I believe people had issues with her standing properly. This one can not stand straight up either, but handles a slight bend in her knees very. Medusa’s hair has some weight to it but it’s fairly malleable from the shoulders down. It could just be mine, but the head is very loose and can not handle any tilt. The paint apps are simple and clean.
Her head can tilt down (not stay) and gives about 90 degrees between her hair body. Single-jointed elbows, but they don’t have any restriction on the back of the elbow so the arms can fold backwards the full direction of the joint. Left arm has more articulation as her hair favors her right side, so you can pull the arm back and get the full shoulder rotation on the left. Vertical wrist joints so you can T-Rex her hands. Besides the head nothing is too loose or tight.
Biggest QC issue is on the right side of her face behind the hair. On the left side the hair is folded behind her ear, but on the right there is noticeable gap on the head mold that leaves a very noticeable amount of skin between the ear and hair.“
For those ready to go on the prowl and hunt down their own Queen of the Inhumans action figure, Chad also included a snapshot that gives us the all-important UPC number for this Walgreens exclusive release: 630509632107.
The Fantastic Four Legends Medusa figure should be spreading out across the United States over the course of the next one to two weeks now that there have been multiple sightings of her in Texas, so if you’ve been itching for a new Medusa figure, now’s the time to begin your search.
I’ll post updates to the Marvel Toy News Facebook and Twitter Pages once the Walgreens Exclusive Mr. Fantastic begins to hit stores as well, so make sure you follow our social media if you want to get the jump on Reed!
