|Marvel Legends Terrax|
Now I got this Terrax action figure about 4 months ago, and there wasn't any question in my mind that he would look badass once I'll gather all the pieces and assemble him. Terrax is a build-a-figure for Wave 1 of the Return of Marvel Legends. Hasbro definitely made some improvement with their creation since they started this series. Although not as good as some of the Toy Biz build-a-figures, Terrax here is better than those that came out "Pre-Return of ML Series" by Hasbro.
He comes with this humongous battle axe or halberd, which I think is really cool! The only problem is Terrax cannot hold them properly; his right hand cannot hold it tight and it just wiggles and moves around his weak grip. I have to use a clear stand on this one just to make him look like he's about to cut you in half.
The head is well sculpted; I like how he has that expression on his face. Body, arms and legs has a pretty decent sculpt. But the paint job... I think needs a little shading and some "life" going in it. The colour on his tabard is a flat red and a flat blue with no variations at all, as well as his boots. Terrax skin is almost indistinguishable with his halberd! I wish they sprayed a little bit of silver on his weapon to have this metallic-look and not plain dull and gray.
I got no complain with the poseability of this figure. Marvel Legends has never been too stingy with articulation. Terrax got ball-jointed neck, ball-jointed hips, bicep swivels, single-jointed elbows, wrist joints, double-jointed knees, ankle pivots, leg swivels and the ab crunch.
While the Marvel Select Thanos is kinda small for a Select figure, Terrax suffered the same case of his own. In my opinion, he needs bulkier muscles, a wider torso, and a bit of height to blend well with other Legends figures but his size is not as bad as Arnim Zola, which I will be talking next.

I kind of played around his halberd just to see if I could attach it on his back. So I have to disconnect the handle from its blade and try to shove the handle to a strap around his back and... wallah!- Terrax rests his mighty halberd! Although I'm not going to say he's one of the awesome ML figures out there, but he is definitely fun to build and play. He's not the type of action figure that can ruin your day.
