From a conversation on the action figure message board The Fwoosh comes one stalwart collector's opinion on the relative merits of the Marvel Legends line:
No female figure in the ML line, is realistically sexy, in my opinion.
I few days ago I saw a figure of Elseworld Supergirl from DC direct and I notice that the sculpt of the torso area is impressive, for a 6 incher. It has all the elements of sexiness, at least in the comic book context.
1. Big boobs (this should be a no brainer)
2. Small waistline (ditto)
3. Defined abs (thought not very muscular)
4. Big and tilted hips.
I was wondering if the torso articulation in female MLs is the key factor in preventing them from becoming sexy. Well, if we can consider a non articulated Face Off Hulk to still be the best Hulk figure, then maybe we can tolerate (or even prefer) a non torso articulated female.
Well, articulation or not in the torso area, I noticed that no female character in ML is sculpted to be sexy.
Now that Hasbro is going full swing on the 12 inch Icons line, isn't it ironic that the Jean Grey that we saw is even flat chested? Should she be more defined now that she is in 12 inches?
