You know I couldn’t pass up getting another Ant Man for pictures. This LCS wave 44 also adds another fun army building figure too. Read on for reviews and of course more Ant Man pics!
Ant Man II
Lang has a wonderfully sculpted helmet. I love the design and the little red insect looking eyes are just perfect. He has decent facial details underneath but I have to be honest with you, that blank stare of his creeps me out (Scott, hello, are you there??; his helmet’s going to stay on permanently). Included is a red hairpiece for him. And it’s not often that the hairpiece ear color matches the headpiece so well but this one is spot on (helmet is still going to stay on).
The rest is a basic minimate body with red and black color details. But this figure is proof that a vanilla figure can be spectacular with sharp details. Part of the credit is due to how well the black and red stand out against each other but the paint apps are truly top notch. The lines are sharp with no bleeding and love the small details around his wrists and ankles. Simple but beautiful. The only thing I would have liked to see would be an extra pair of slipper feet to shorten him like Pym’s Ant Man.
No accessories included save for extra hairpiece. Parts for custom-wise you get a cool helmet and extra red hair. Also his body makes for a good base for red or black suited characters.
Overall I’m very impressed. I never really kept up with Ant Man in the comics but both Ant Man minimates are now the two figures that are always with me when I take minimate pictures.
