Acton Figure Review: Rogue from Marvel Legends: X-Men by Hasbro
Height: 6 1/4 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double-hinged knees, swivel thighs, balljointed hips, balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, and a balljointed head.
Accessories: Two glove cuffs, alternate un-gloved right hand, and a left leg for the Juggernaut build-a-figure.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* Rogue is gorgeous. Hasbro is really doing some fantastic work here and I love the Rogue sculpt. The face is distinct and definitely looks like Rogue is ready to rumble, her hair is fully detailed and, with the addition of that green headband, makes her look like she's ready to join a 1980s hairband. This is an excellent classic look and probably exactly what most fans were expecting. By the way, here's the old Toy Biz version of this figure for comparison.
* I love the articulation on Hasbro's Marvel Legends figures. They're fun, durable, and have a great range of useful motion. They also have what is quite possibly the best articulation on any female figures in the 1/12th scale (DC Icons seems good, too). Rogue's ball jointed mid-torso, double hinged knees, and excellent swivel/hinge ankles give you so much flexibility in finding the best poses.
* The paintwork is beautiful here. I love how clean and shiny Rogue's yellow and green body suit looks. This is just an excellent looking figure and the little details such as the belt with the red "X" on her hips and the dark brown jacket help to enhance the appeal.
* I love the look of Rogue's flight jacket over her bodysuit. It's just such a cool detail and the execution here is fantastic. The color, sculpt, and addition of the red "X" logos on the shoulders are all spot on.
* Rogue comes with an interesting accessory: An un-gloved right hand! This allows her to "use her powers" and is actually a really cool character specific accessory. The hands are easily removable and the glove cuffs on Rogue's wrists also remove so that it looks like Rogue has fully removed her gloves. Cool idea, solid execution.
* Rogue comes with the left leg of the build-a-figure from this series: The Juggernaut! It's a pretty decent sized leg and, of course, I'm always thrilled when we get a build-a-figure with a series of figures. I'll be reviewing this guy as soon as I complete him, so stay tuned!
* It seems like Hasbro was trying to give Rogue her unique boot tops without sculpting a new piece. I'm sorry to say that it didn't work too well. The boot tops on each leg are made from a metallic green cuff and the yellow boot flare that sit loosely over the tops of Rogue's calves. They move around, though, and look rather awkward. I'd almost prefer there to be nothing here rather than these awkward things.
I haven't reviewed any other Rogue figures on this site since, as I mentioned at the beginning of the review, I think this is the first Rogue figure I've ever owned! How crazy, right? I have reviewed plenty of other Marvel Legends figures, though, including:
