We FINALLY have Captain Marvel!! I am so excited about this and can’t wait to buy her. Probably the biggest surprise, though, was the addition of the first X-Men character, Wolverine. There is also a new Spider-Man figure. All of these are currently available on their store.
Captain Marvel comes with two heads and Goose, as well as tentacles for Goose. She looks perfect and I’m ridiculously excited. Her outfit is cool, her hair is cool, and omg Goose!
I was not expecting Wolverine at all. They must have either been already working on him or rushed him through development. I love that he comes with a cowboy hat and katana. He’s also wearing his classic uniform so I’m hoping that means that we’ll get some cartoon style Storm, Gambit, and Rogue. It’s hard not to get my hopes up for those.
As far as Marvel figures got Wolverine seems to be on the good side of things. I’ve complained about the Marvel figures before because often times they come off as cheap and not as filled with character. Wolverine has got a nice almost smirk in his unmasked face with thick brows, and he’s also got a good hostile face in the masked version. All in all I thought they did a good job with him.
This is the third Spider-Man figure. While the costumes have all been slightly different the mold appears to be the same and the accessory is the same. I believe this is the Far From Home costume, but if not someone correct me. Honestly, not much to say about this one.
Disney has stopped including flyers in the boxes of these toys so it’s impossible to know what they’re going to release. I don’t believe anyone was expecting Wolverine or another Spider-Man. It will be interesting to see what they come out with next.
My wish for future additions to the entire line is definitely more female characters. If they ever started adding Disney Princesses I’d freak out. The art style is made for the princesses in my opinion. The Star Wars line is my favorite line and with a new movie coming out later this year I hope they’ve got some planned for release. Maybe a General Leia or for gods sake finally give us a Finn.
This series has got a ton of potential and almost limitless characters and material to pull from. I look forward to seeing what they give us.
