For this review we take a look at another Toys R Us movie set that lined up with the regular specialty store releases (Marvel Wave 39). In this Thor themed wave there are two sets that are exclusive to TRU. With tons of detail and new sculpts expect to see some impressive figures to add to your collection.
MMC Score – 9 out of 10
Odin, ruler of the Asgardian people, father of Thor and Loki, and master napper. Played by none other than Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins (now what movie did he win an Oscar for …. that’s right, another film that we have minimates for: Silence of the Lambs).
Great facial details on this one; he’s easily recognizable as Hopkins from the movie. Love the eye patch and beard, very nice. He also has a new sculpted helmet with the curved horns and wing triangle things in the back with his grey hair underneath. This is a fantastic helmet with tons of detail on it, matches up perfectly to the movie one.
The torso cover and cape are all one sculpted highly detailed piece with the long burgundy cape in the back with his gold/silver armor showing in the front. The cover adds the bulk needed to this character and is a good contrast against the sleeker/slimmer Loki. There’s no detail on the main torso underneath, just the brown blank, but on the arms are grey details for the shoulder pads and also more detail on the legs. There are grey bracelets that match the style of the rest of his outfit. I’m a little surprised that he just has the black shoes instead of boots (or at least the raised boot fronts).
For an accessory he has his gold Odin Staff, nice detail on this too.
