Marvel Girl/ Jean Grey I can't say the same about her series mate, Omega Sentinel, who I'm reviewing today. She's part of the recent House of X/ Tri-Sentinel series of Marvel Legends figures although from what I have gleaned she's actually from the Powers of X comic series. Weird, huh? I purchased this figure just because she was incredibly cool looking so I had to do a bit of research. Omega Sentinel is actually Karima Shapandar, a former Indian police officer who was turned into some sort of Sentinel through nanotechnology and who has been part of the X-Men at times. I'm definitely more focusing on comics from the late 60s- through the early 90s in my current reading but I very well may get around to some of the series she shows up in in the future. For now, though, I'm just enjoying a cool figure. Let's take a look at her after the break...
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, ball jointed hips, ball jointed mid-torso, swivel/ hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, hinged neck, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: 2 interchangeable heads, two regular arms, two weaponized arms, and the torso of the Tri-Sentintel build-a-figure.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* Omega Sentinel's arms pop off at the elbow so you can swap on some cool weaponry. There are two options and both can fit on either arm. First up is a large, round cannon arm. I have no idea what it does but it surely can cause some destruction!
* The second arm is another large cannon with lots of detail and some cool painted details on it. This i my favorite of the two.
* Omega Sentinel has amazing articulation. There's really nothing that impedes her joints. You might think that the shoulder pads would get in the way of her shoulder movement but, nope! They are pliable and just slide up onto her shoulders. She's really, really fun to play around with!
* This series comes with the pieces of an unusually spindly Sentinel
called called the Tri-Sentinel on the packaging. I'm not sure that I'm
planning to build this but it seems rather tall and the torso this figure comes with is pretty decently sized.

This is a very cool figure. I know nothing about the story arc either, but the design is definitely intriguing.ReplyDelete
I find myself buying many Marvel Legends figures that I know nothing about. The character designs and toy designs are just so good that it makes up for it. Makes me remember being a kid and picking up many of the Toy biz figures from the Marvel Super Heroes and X-Men lines who I didn't know but who were just so darn cool.Delete
