Hello, fellow Marvel Legends collectors!
Today I am going to be talking about my thoughts on the Marvel Legends Grandmaster & Korg two pack from the Thor Ragnarok movie and if this two pack is worth purchasing.
The characters getting made into Marvel Legends
Two of the most prominent characters in Thor Ragnarok we have are the Grandmaster played by Jeff Goldblum and Korg and for whom director Taika Waititi provided a motion capture performance.
So these two characters both getting made in Marvel Legends form wouldn’t be something Hasbro would want to miss out on given their popularity.
That is why getting them here when the 80th Anniversary line is starting to come out is a perfect chance to sell them to fans of the Thor Ragnarok movie.
Weapons both characters use in the Thor Ragnarok movie
In the Thor Ragnarok movie the Grandmaster uses his stick weapon to melt people so that is featured here in this two pack and Korg uses a club weapon which he fires during the final battle scene.
Both the two weapons are what they appeared in the movie so it’s nice that both weapons are accurate.
While both weapons can get warped either from being in the package or from general use heating them up with a hair dryer will straighten them out so for anyone who had this issue this is what to do.
The weapons don’t have a lot of paint applications aside from the gold on Grandmaster’s melt stick and the grey and gold on Korg’s night club.
Paint applications used on both Marvel Legends
One of the many important elements in Marvel Legends is the paint application and how well it executes the character.
The paint applications on both the Grandmaster and Korg is 100% accurate to how they both appear in the movie so no issues with that at all.
Simply put paint used on Korg is in line with how he appeared in the movie as last year when Hasbro made the Thanos Build-A-Figure they made him very purple and he wasn’t like that in the movie.
So here Hasbro nailed the paint resemblence to Korg and also did a good job on how the rocks appear on his body.
Grandmaster’s paint application is accurate to how he appeared in the movie with the jacket and trousers being exactly like the movie.
Finals thoughts and do I recommend this two pack
Wrapping this review up I’d say if you are a fan of the Thor Ragnarok movie then I highly recommend you purchase this two pack as both characters are done perfectly here in Marvel Legends form.
There are several kinds of Marvel Legends collectors – ones who only collect the comic book Legends and ones who only collect the Marvel Cinematic Universe Legends or even ones who collect both kinds.
So for ones who only collect comic book Legends this set will most likely be a pass for you.
However for Marvel Cinematic Universe collectors this will be a must have and if Thor Ragnarok is one of your favourite movies then this set will be an even bigger must have.
Are you a fan of this two pack and do you have one in your collection?
