|Marvel Legends Odin the Allfather and King Thor (BAF)|
If you're a "completionist" and have already gotten all the action figures that came with the BAF pieces, then you should be able to assemble either Odin or King Thor. The one thing that bugs me with this Series is that I actually have to purchase two Hawkeyes, two Iron Fists, and two Marvel Now Thors to bring the two Asgardians standing next to each other for these photos. I believe it's just ludicrous that Hasbro had forced collectors to spend another 60 or 70 dollars just to complete the other Build-A-Figure, which is in my case- King Thor.
It is important to know that Odin's and King Thor's heads as well as their capes and weapons are swappable since they are easy to remove and in the same scale. They roughly stand between 7.4 to 7.6 inches. The Allfather (of course), with his helm giving him the height, stands a little taller than the king. Surprisingly, these two stand almost of the same height as the Marvel Now Thor! -which really made me wish Hasbro could have downscaled this Thor figure to make him look a lot ideal.
Both their articulations are very much the same and got the same amount of hinges and joints as with the Marvel Now Thor, which I reviewed a week ago. Their heads can only move at a limited range because of their shoulder-length hairs and beards... and that ram horn on Odin's. Over their shoulders, there are pairs of shoulder guards that can pivot and are removable. They have rotations at the elbows which I'm not a huge fan of. No waist rotation however, they got swivel at the diaphragm. Their hips are on T-joints in which the movements are hindered by its skirts. Double-jointed knees, hinged ankles with the ankle pivot are also fused to their legs.
One thing that also bothers me with their shoulder guards is they didn't entirely cover the shoulders, which made it odd to look at. Each have their own accessories. For the Allfather of course, he got his scepter which I wish has some details on it than just a plain bronze-coloured plastic. The king got a battle axe made with a soft pliable plastic, which is kind of interesting why they go with such material. While holding their weapons, you can pair them with a broadsword or Thor's hammer since their hands are both on gripping poses. King Thor has the metal arm while Odin does not.
You can also see that their capes are very much the same with the Marvel Now Thor, which is... okay I guess? These wavy capes have a windswept effect that are nicely sculpted. Even though we see these being reused, it still fits and doesn't make the figure look bad.
Overall, the Marvel Legends Odin and King Thor aren't bad figures once you get them on display but I really hoped Hasbro could have at least made a few extra effort on the details. Moreover, the articulation could have been better if they didn't use the Marvel Now Thor framework. Despite all the matter, it's a must-get figure since this is the first 6-inch scale Odin and King Thor action figure we got from Marvel Legends.
