Thor, as you can see is packaged in the clear bubble plastic making the figure fully visible. It tells you what it is on the side and the back card is designed bright and colorful you can see the background is designed with images of Thor. The bottom left hand where the character’s name features a Hammer symbol, Thor's main weapon. If you’re a collector that does not open these it has the standard hook on the top of the package so they can be tacked onto a wall with no issue if you still want to show it off. I dig how he's packaged on the base standing on it. It adds to the cool factor.
The arms and legs move up and down like a standard figure as do the hands and feet. Thor bends in the legs and arms as well as twists in the waist. The head moves as well. He’s a big figure that’s designed to be overly muscular so he moves a bit stiffer than the others my son and I played with. Plus he has a giant cape which makes it a bit harder to spin him around
Speaking of his head I took a pic of it to show the detail that goes into these things. Squinty eyes, etched long flowing hair the stoic mouth, and the battle cuts really give this thing depth. Thor's helmet looks really cool but I really wish it could be removed.
The head turns, as do all the hands, feet waist, arms, and legs move. Elbow and knee joints bend making it a fully posable and playable His arms do not fully extend out to the sides but that’s about the only thing that doesn’t move smoothly. My son has had him fighting Thanos for days on end now along with the other figures from this line. These are the most well deigned well-made figures out there. These can really hold up to the punishment kids can dish out. Plus Thor and Captain America are the only two who seem to be able to defeat Thanos so it cool for Thor to beat him with his hammer
The hammer is really slick. Thor's hand has a circle opening so the handle that's designed to be leather wrapped slides right in. The hammer itself is dark and light great color with black etchings and shadows to give it a real look. It's stays sturdy in the hand when your bashing the bad guys.
The base is really cool it looks like the top piece of a castle. Thor has the holes in his leg so he can be placed on the pegs in floor of the base when kids are done playing. And this one is really cool to play with as well as my son has his figures constantly jumping off of it knocking down the bad guys
This is another great toy for play or display. Diamond Select makes the best designed, and most durable toys out there today. My son will not stop playing with these and I really don’t mind playing with them either
