Marvel Legends SPdr wave Elektra Action Figure

Marvel Legends Elektra Action Figure
 I am Elektra, the assassin. To look upon me......is to see the end of life.
Marvel keeps pumping out Elektras and each one is even better than the last one. 

We remember the first Marvel Legends Elektra that was released a decade ago and it was praised for its articulation and beauty. There was that back-step though when Marvel released a version that came with the Sinister 6 pack. That was garbage. Then there was the Elektra that was released along with Ronin as part of a 2-pack. That was our standard for Elektra since then: decent articulation, good accessories, alternate hands and heads, and a great sculpt. That was our fall-to Elektra til the Elodie Yung's version that we reviewed here

She comes with everything you see here: A pair-of sais, and hands that are molded to handle sais. No alternative heads or hands this time around and the left leg of the SPdr armor.

WHAT'S TO LIKE ABOUT THE MARVEL LEGENDS SPDR WAVE ELEKTA ACTION FIGURE?

FIRST: Elektra is beautiful! It's hard not to fall in love with those big doe-eyes and those full red lips. Her beauty is a definite distraction that makes her even more deadly. The figure is a true homage to what she looks like in the comics

Elektra is quoted as having said "I am Elektra, the assassin. To look upon me......is to see the end of life." Well... if that's what you look at before you die... well there are worse fates. A least you die having seen a thing of beauty. 

Here's Elektra's facial sculpt:

SECOND: Elektra's articulation is excellent as expected, and she was a lot of fun to pose. There is some awkwardness created by her loose fitting, modesty protecting sash, but it's nothing that can't be worked around.

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE ABOUT THE MARVEL LEGENDS SPDR WAVE ELEKTA ACTION FIGURE?

FIRST: Well unlke previous Elektras that came with more accessories than this, Marvel gave us instead the SPdr armor left leg part. We really would have appreciated extra weapons, hands or heads. Other than that, it's one of the most beautiful Marvel Legends figures we have and we're glad to have it. 

The Marvel Legends SPdr wave Elektra Action figure is available on Amazon for around US$ 19 (Roughly PhP 1,000 plus shipping). She's kinda rare here in the Philippines but not impossible to find.
