Right off the bat,just by looking at the figure inside the packaging you'll notice that his helmet seems to be removable.This Is confirmed once out of the packaging.Thank god because I would have been more than ticked had his helmet been permanently attached to the head sculpt with his hairline partially showing.The paint on this one Is all right,but you gotta be careful when buying these online as some of them do have minor paint issues.I was able to inspect mine in hand before purchasing,but being that this was the last one on the pegs,I probably would have picked It up anyways, bad paint and all.
This Loki Is definitely based on Tom Hiddleston,the actor who plays Loki In the Avengers live action film.This becomes apparent upon removing of his helmet.I will say that for a villain,his facial demeanor could have been a little more menacing.
The sculpt for this version of Loki Is awesome and while his hands aren't really molded to hold much,the left arm Is partially bent to give him the ability to hold up his helmet or cast a crippling spell!
The cape Is molded out of a hard plastic,similar to Thor's from the same line,and really looks great.You would think that these caped figures would have balance issues but on the contrary,these fockers stand pretty damn sturdy.We're not dealing with cheap plastic here either guys,these figures are solid! Marvel Universe plastic Is somewhat soft in comparison.
