The much anticipated Marvel Universe THOR movie tie-ins arrives in Penang. Part of the Avengers initiative and build up to the Avengers movie.
I managed to grab a few to have a closer look.
I really did not like the new LOKI look so that was out. My favourite size are the 3 3/4 inch size, so the THOR figure in that size was my focus. There were 3 different types, but essentially the same figure with different accessories. There was a glowing hammer and sword spike versions which did not seem appealing. So I settled with the battle hammer version.

OK a few things stand out when looking at this figure. First of all the so called battle hammer was not as depicted on the card and was more of a sword with the hammer part stuck in as the sword guard. The hand grip could not hold on to the hammer / sword well.  Good thing I was only really interested in the hammer and which was scaled well and fit well in the hand.

Costume looked cool with a nice detailing.

Still have some doubts on the facial sculpt although very nice but the expression seems dull and neither fierce or noble looking. Guess that is just my taste and opinion.

Check back later when we will visit ODIN.
