I thought all of the episodes of What If? were pretty good but the Doctor Strange episode "What If...Doctor Strange Lost his Heart Instead of his Hands?" was one of the best. It was a dark, creepy, well made episode that was in some ways stronger than the actual Doctor Strange film. I wasn't planning on picking this guy up at first but when I stumbled upon him at a GameStop during a sale (ended up getting him for 20% off) I decided to snag him. Currently the Doctor Strange in my display is the Marvel Now! version from 2015 (I'm really waiting for the Walmart exclusive classic Doctor Strange coming next year) but this guy makes a great alternate figure who I can find a place for on my shelves. Let's take a look at Doctor Strange Supreme after the break...
* Since this series features a build-a-figure of the Watcher you get a piece with Doctor Strange Supreme. He comes with the left leg. I'm not building this guy so I've been selling off the extra pieces but it seems like a pretty solid BAF.
* Strange also comes with his cape which is different in What If? than in his movie appearances. It's not the levitating cloak but something more sinister looking. It plugs into his back and stays on fairly well. You'll have to futz with it a bit but it's nice with quite a few paint applications including some gold patterns on the inside.
* The paint applications have some serious messy spots, though. The purple shows through on the outside and the gold stripes are really sloppy on the inside.
Doctor Strange Supreme is a pretty cool figure. There have been lots of movie based Doctor Strange figures (and there's another on shelves now for Spider-Man: No Way Home) but this one does offer something new. It would have been nice if he had come with a few more hands or some more magic effects, though, to give him more diverse options for posing. Still, I do like him. He's a Good and a 1/2 figure and definitely worth a look if you're a fan of Doctor Strange or of the Disney+ What If? series.

couldn't help myself, bought the entire wave- hell, this Doctor makes a fine stand-in for just a regular, ol' Doctor Strange in my opinion. Can't wait until that Classic Strange arrives from Walmart! Excelsior!ReplyDelete
The only figure I haven't seen from this series in person is Zombie Cap but I'm not sure I'll need to pick him up. Who knows, though, if he looks fantastic in person.Delete
