Review: Marvel Legends Moon Knight, Disney+ Infinity Ultron Wave


Moon Knight, as seen in his debut Disney+ Series of 2022, was released in the Summer of 2022 as part of the 2nd Disney+ Marvel Legends wave. The wave included build-a-figure parts for the What If? Infinity Ultron, although no parts were included with Moon Knight.


The figure is packed in the now defunct window box Marvel Legends packaging with a blue tone throughout including the side artwork. The rear of the box carries a further illustrated image of the MCU Moon Knight, a very brief text piece on the character, and a checklist for the rest of the wave and Infinity Ultron BAF.

The figure itself is a work of art in hand. It is sculpted as though mummified with textures and folds across the bandages that encompass the entire body. The chest section has the Moon icon cut out and this is picked out in gold, as are the trims on the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. There is more gold detailing on the belt and then down each thigh are printed hieroglyphs with a finish so crisp it must have been applied using the photo-real printing usually reserved for face sculpts.


Moon Knight is wearing his hood - complete with the Moon icon - and a long flowing cape. The cape is plastic with soft goods not yet a thing in the MCU Marvel Legends and only just creeping into the wider line. This does hinder articulation and posing but is designed in such a way as to flow naturally around the figure in a neutral pose.

Moon Knight comes with two sets of hands, one a pair of clenched fists, the other a pair of gripping hands into which fit the two Moon-shaped Crescent Darts. The Crescent Darts are coloured gold and include some sculpted icons/hieroglyphs but these are a little softer in the detail. They fit pretty well into either of the gripping hands but not fully secure so keep an eye on them if you are moving your figures around or dusting.


Articulation is impressive, as is usually the case with Marvel Legends figures, and the figure is pinless throughout further disguising the joints. While the cape is a hindrance for some positions, it is good to know that if you did upgrade to a custom soft goods wired cape from one of those talented online individuals that the articulation is there for some very impressive posing.

Moon Knight has seen his prices on the secondary market rise compared to many others in the wave. He is still fairly readily available if you are willing to pay over the market prices. There is also an indication of some further stocks due in April 2023 with some online stores still taking pre-orders. For those of you that don't have Moon Knight yet (and I was one of those for quite some time) then I wish you the best of luck as he is certainly a very visually impressive figure for any Marvel Legends collection.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
