Paint is another area where the figure really excels. The suit is complicated with an intricate design, but the paintwork is pretty much everywhere it needs to be. The back of the figure looks to be missing a few paint apps here and there, but it’s nowhere near as cheap as the Avengers figures. I would like the helmet to be a little brighter, closer to the rest of the figure, but it blends in well overall. The orange on the lenses would appear to be a little off from the film, but they look great.
Ant-Man included four accessories if you include the the Ultron head. And those accessories are the kind of stuff that you usually see with Ant-Man – more Ant-Men! Included was a tiny version of Ant-Man geared to sit a top an included winged ant and a tiny version of Yellow Jacket (well at least Hasbro made one YJ!). All these pieces are fun and contribute to a hoard of different scales of Ant-Men
Overall, I don’t like this review is as joy-filled as I want it to be! I’m going to blame the late hour. I could nitpick here & there, but the planning & execution on this figure has really been great! The folks that designed the costume did a great job and Hasbro did a great job translating it down. The paint work is sharp and there’s plenty of fun articulation. Even if you end up not liking the film, the suit still has a great 50s B movie vibe and the figure captures it well. It’s a great piece to snatch up – and unlike previous waves, I’ve seen this one just about everywhere. Kinda like ants.
