APOCASLYPSE: figure looks awesome in packaging. I am a collector. I rarely remove figures from packaging. I only collect Hi-grade condition figures.

Short and stubby but pretty damn badass. I'm not a marvel fan but I really do love this figure immensely.

The big figures tend to be the best. Love me some Marvel Universe figures so I have the majority of the ones that have been released.

the body on this figure is huge and too bulky. it doesnt really have the classic apocalypse look to it either. but the head is a great sculpt and actually fits perfectly onto a 6 inch DC universe figure.

Part of wave 13 (series 3, wave 2, figure number 9) in the Marvel Universe line, Apocalypse was released with an average retail price of $8.00 (USD) in the spring of 2011. Case-mates of the epic villain included: World War Hulk, Modular Armor Iron Man, Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Woman, Cable, First Appearance Wolverine, Gladiator, and the Jim Lee version of Cyclops.

The ankle assembly on this figure is rather unique, and consists of a ball-hinge with two swivel-points (one on each end). The ball-hinge allows you to bend the feet forward and backwards about 90° while the top swivel-point allows you to turn the ball-hinge a full 360°. While we've seen ball-hinges in the ankles of a few of the larger Marvel figures to come out in the various line, the truly unique part of this assembly is that the bottom swivel-point consists of a ball-joint that is used to attach the foot to the ankle assembly The ball-joint in the feet allows you to pivot the feet from side-to-side about 90°, allowing you to keep the feet firmly planted on the ground no matter how far apart the legs are situated. The knees of this figure are double-hinged, however the shear girth of his legs limits a portion of their movement, the full range of motion in the legs ends up being roughly 100°; from fully extended to the kneeling position. Just below the hip there is a swivel-point that allows you to rotate the lower-leg a full 360°. The hips use a ball-joint for articulation, this allows for about 80° of forward movement and about 45° of lateral motion.

The hands are attached with simple peg-and-hole assembly that allows you to rotate the hands at the wrist a full 360°. The elbows are single-hinged and provide about 80° of forward movement; from fully extended to half-raised. The shoulders have a ball-hinge with a swivel point at both the top and bottom. The ball-hinge allows for about 90° of lateral movement with each of the swivel-points provide a full 360° of rotation allowing you to adjust the orientation of the ball-hinge to your liking for greater poseability.

The head is attached with a simple swivel-point that allows you to turn the head 360° around. In the mid-torso you are able to bend the upper-body forward about 10° and rotate it a full 360°.

Without a doubt, my favorite feature about this figure has to be the ball-joint in the ankle assembly that provides the pivoting motion for the feet. One of the hardest parts about posing a figure has got to be finding that perfect balance between stability and holding a dynamic pose; these ball-joints greatly improve the range that you can have the legs spread apart and still have the feet firmly planted on the ground. A close second for “favorite feature” is most definitely the metallic-blue paint used for the paint applications; it just looks nice and does wonders to add a bit of “class” to what would have been an otherwise drab paint scheme.

There are really only two things that I would change about this figure. The first is that the hoses connecting the shoulder-pads to the lower-arms is pulled rather tight when you bend the arms forward. This limits the range of motion a bit, and I can see excessive use resulting in broken hoses. The other is that I would have liked to have seen ball-hinges in the hips, rather than a simple ball-joint, to increase the range of motion in the legs.

Overall this is a very nice figure, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who may be interested in adding this character to their Marvel Universe collection. Previously I was using the BAF Apocalypse figure from the Marvel Legends line as a stand-in. Despite his ability to change size, it is nice to have a figure that is more in scale with the rest of the line... now I can swap them around depending on what the scene calls for.

A decent figure but I am still holding out for a more first appearance Apocalypse. The modern look is ok but I like 80's and 90's mutants.
