Whereas I did preorder her for the $22.99 value level of final yr’s value hike, I think about this up to date model of the Scarlet Witch, AKA Wanda Maximoff, would have made it into my assortment regardless. I missed out on the “Household Issues” set of Magneto, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver from a pair years again and whereas I’ve managed to amass Magneto, Wanda and Pietro have been outdoors of my most popular value vary. I’ve nonetheless been utilizing the 2015 Marvel Legends: Infinite Collection Scarlet Witch in my Avengers show however now I am lastly capable of transfer her to my X-Males villains shelf and add this new and improved model of Wanda to the Avengers. She’s a part of the Marvel Legends Retro Assortment line which options packaging primarily based on the 1990 Toy Biz Marvel Superheroes line.

* This Retro Assortment model of Scarlet Witch is on the left whereas the 2015 Marvel Legends: Infinite Collection Scarlet Witch (Maidens of Would possibly) is on the correct. They really share torsos, capes, arms, and I consider the higher legs as properly. The headsculpts are totally different as are the arms and decrease legs. The Retro Assortment is a repaint of the Scarlet Witch from the “Household Issues” assortment, which I do not personal. 

The Posiitves:

* This can be a fairly good sculpt that’s enhanced with a really traditional trying paintjob. The pink and pink outfit actually pop and make Wanda one of many standout figures in your shelf. It is wonderful how totally different she appears from the earlier releases with a coloration change and some new components. Every thing bends collectively fairly properly.

Wanda is properly articulated and appears nice in a wide range of poses. Should you’ve  picked up a comic book styled Marvel Legends feminine previously 5 years or so, you already know what to anticipate right here.

* The cape nonetheless appears good. I like the way it hangs from her shoulders however low within the center. It stays on securely and would not shift round due to the way it rests over her neck. it is detachable should you really feel the necessity to have a capeless Wanda. 

* The 2015 Scarlet Witch got here with these identical vitality results, as have no less than a dozen different magic customers and such. They are not brittle just like the earliest variations of those equipment they usually look significantly better molded on this pearlescent pink plastic.

* To provide her additional powers Hasbro additionally threw in a set of those rubbery vitality results that match over her wrists and arms. We have seen these with Scarlet Witch earlier than, and I really desire them to the discs.
