Here are two popular characters that are on the opposite side of the coin of good and evil. Loki and Heimdall make up this Thor: The Dark World LCS pack. Let’s see if the figures are as cool as the actors on film…
No horned helmet this go around but rather his slicked black hairpiece. Part of me was hoping for an attached “speak-no-evil” mask that he had from the end of the Avengers’ movie but wasn’t in the Thor movie so no need to include it here. He has an intense look on his face with those bright piercing eyes.
For accessories he comes with a cool looking pair of handcuffs. They’ve also included a clear base stand. He makes for a good figure to mix and match with previous versions (especially that hairpiece). Now we just need someone to make a decent “speak-no-evil” mask or decal then we’d be all set.
Overall he’s a good figure but not the best Loki we’ve seen so far.
His sculpted helmet is outstanding; I love the details on it along with the gold paint apps. Another nice touch is his headpiece has facial and hair details all around. So looks just as good with or without the helmet (minus the hole on top).
Like Loki he has a full length torso cover cloak that again somewhat limits articulation, but to his credit the cover is wider so there is more leg room. He has large gold wrist cuffs along with boots. Again the paint apps are well done. The base minimate figure is brown with a few arm and leg highlights.
Heimdall comes with his massive ornate sword. I only wish you could position his arms in such a way that he could easily hold the sword down in front of him with both hands (like how he does at the gate). They’ve also included a clear base stand. Custom-wise he’s a perfect start for a Luther custom (Google the show if you haven’t seen it before).
