Welcome back to another Kastor’s Review. This time we take a look at the newest exclusive offering from Hasbro Marvel Legends, Jean Grey, the Black Queen. This figure is not hard to review because it has very little in the way of new parts. This figure is simply a remodel of Emma Frost, White Queen. The newer parts are the head and a new paint scheme. While Emma didn’t have a great head sculpt, this figure shows that details and a decent paint job are possible from Hasbro. Where this figure fails is where every other HML fails, articulation. I know most of you ask what kind of articulation the Black Queen needs, but we need to stop using this as an excuse for Hasbro. This type of figure is unacceptable based on what we have been offered in the past. The only reason that Hasbro seems to have us over a barrel is that most of us want to finish various teams and sets and we are forced to settle. But I think as time goes on and the figures overall quality decreases, so will the collectors who need to get all the figures despite the wish lists.
