Hello, Marvel Legends collectors!
In this article I am going to be sharing my thoughts on the Marvel Legends Venom Deluxe Exclusive.
Since this is a re-release of the previous Monster Venom this article may influence if you want to purchase him.
The previous Monster Venom we had from Hasbro
When the Venom movie was released back in 2018 Hasbro did a Monster Venom Build-A-Figure wave to go along with the release of the movie.
The Monster Venom we got back then was the Mac Gargan Venom who comic book fans will know as Scorpion.
So if you were one of those people who wanted an Eddie Brock Venom instead we now have one released.
When removing the action figure from the packaging the back piece does need to be clicked on but it’s no issue to do.
Is this re-release worth buying if you have the Build-A-Figure?
If you already have that Monster Venom in your collection and aren’t interested in re-releases from Hasbro then this will be a pass for you.
However if you would have preferred an Eddie Brock Monster Venom instead of Mac Gargan then this is a must for you.
I am a fan of both characters so I didn’t mind getting a re-release of Venom just to have a monster version of Eddie in my collection.
If you were wondering are there any accessories or interchangeable heads the answer is no so that may disappoint some.
The difference in paint applications and chest symbol
Aside from the different character there isn’t a whole lot of difference between the two of them.
The only difference is the symbol on the chest and the paint applications so not really a lot.
Despite it been pretty much the same action figure to me there is enough of a difference to want to have both versions of Venom in your collection.
While it is a re-release articulation is just the same so single jointed elbows and double jointed knees are all there.
Do I recommend you purchase Venom?
If you are a fan of Venom and really wanted an Eddie Brock Venom on this body mould then yes I recommend him.
Venom is a Fan Channel Exclusive but you can still find him at online retailers like Amazon and eBay.
What did you think of this Deluxe Venom? Are you going to buy him for your collection? or are you going to pass?
