Review : Marvel Legends, Captain Marvel Binary Form



Alongside the main wave of Captain Marvel Legends figures from Hasbro was an Exclusive version of Carol in her Binary Form. This release was exclusive to Walmart in the US and available via the Hasbro Fan Channels in the UK and sold via a number of independent stockists.

 

Packaging 4/5


BInary Captain Marvel comes in the same packaging with the same design as the main wave releases. The character name sits in a gold panel and there is a gold backdrop to the figure with the Star Force emblem.


There has been some degree of posing of Captain Marvel in the box as opposed to a neutral pose. This is OK, but not great and it does expose some gaps in the thigh joints straight off the peg.


The two side art panels are identical and show Captain Marvel with her Binary Powers activating. There is then a wider shot of this on the reverse alongside a short piece of background text


"Captain Marvel channels her powers of cosmic energy manipulation to access an elevated binary form that lets her blast down any galactic threats"


 

Paint & Sculpt 4/5


This is of course the same figure sculpt as was released in the main wave, and in the Star Force Green in the other Walmart (US) / Fan Channel exclusive from the Captain Marvel movie.


On the Binary Form release there has been some updates to the paint and the plastic. The unmasked Carol Danvers head uses the face print technology but the eyes are now painted in glowing orange. The hair piece has been recast in a translucent orange that does look impressive when lit correctly.


The same translucent plastic has been used on both arms with painting starting solid at the top shoulder and fading into the orange plastic at the wrists. This again looks great when lit, but of course unlike the head there are inner workings that can be seen within the translucency such as the arm pins and joints.


The uniform is well painted with gold and red applied onto the base blue plastic. There are a few untidy bits, but nothing disastrous with all the gold trim in good order.
