Today I am bringing to the table the Marvel Legends Wave 1 Ghost Rider action figure review! Let me just start off by saying this figure is amazing.
The packaging looks the same as all of the other figures in wave 1. It has some nice art by Ed McGuiness on the front and back of the card. On the back, there is also a very brief bio of Ghost Rider and small images of the other figures in the wave.
For the most part, I like the package but the cards get damaged really easily in the case. For more about this issue check out the Steve Rogers review.
Out of the Box
At a first glance out of the box, Ghost Rider looks amazing. Both the sculpt and the paint look great.
His flames are glued onto his head rather than being sculpted. His outfit is glued together in a few different pieces. All of the chains are rubbery and hang loosely around him. The costume has some nice details.
My favorite part of the paint is that they put a glow effect caused by the flames. Fantastic.
The only thing I wish that Ghost Rider had was some kind of an accessory. Well, he does kind of come with one, or 2, he has both of Terra’s arms.
Articulation is pretty good. He is like the other figures in wave 1. He has neck movement up and down, ball joint shoulders, twist in the bicepts, double elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, torso joint, twist at the waist, ball jointed hips, double knees, and swivel/hinge ankles. It sure would be nice to see ankle rockers. Ghost Rider has slight problems raising his arms all the way up, due to his shoulder armor.
If you are just selecting certain figures as opposed to the entire wave, this figure is worth considering.
UPDATE: eBay is your best bet for finding this figure.
