“Must-Have Doctor Doom Figure!”
Our Rating: 4.5
This Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release would definitely make you want to look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic.
Or you may want any Doktor Doom collectible for that matter.
We think the only thing that it’s missing is the trademark Dr. Doom throne the Latverian despot is often seen sitting on.
Marvel fans and collectors alike would be more than ecstatic to find out, too, that this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release won’t break the bank.
It’s affordable—at least for the time being!
Legend of Doom!
So, what exactly makes this Doktor Doom figure one of the most interesting releases in recent memory?
For one, the Marvel Fantastic Four villain sets itself apart from other Doctor Doom 6inch action figures.
That’s because of those sweet multiple points of articulation this toy line is famous for.
This Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 figure also boasts an updated design.
It opts to combine two famous characters in one from the Marvel universe into one amazing toy.
Absolutely Great Action Figure
Sure, we hold the Marvel Select Dr.Doom figure from the 2000s to be one of the greatest versions of the characters in toy form ever.
But this one sure gives it a run for its money.
It’s a matter of time before Fantastic Four Marvels like the invisible woman, human torch and hulk catch up to us.
So, let’s get into the nitty gritty of this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 toy.
Welcome Iron Doom!
First off, this isn’t your daddy’s Doktor Doom figure, but the latest incarnations of the character as seen on the pages of Infamous Iron Man.
Don’t be surprised, though, since comic and move-inspired characters and amalgamations of these things have been a sort of staple in the world of collectibles.
If you don’t believe us, just look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic.
You’ll eventually find something like a Johnny Storm/Quicksilver fusion (okay, we maybe we just made that up).
In this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release, though, we’re getting a combination between Iron Man and Doktor Doom, a.k.a. the Infamous Iron Man.
And by Attilan, this figure is so appealing that it simply pops up at you during your one of your post navigation sessions on our site.
This amazing Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 figure comes in the standard Marvel Legends box.
It features a window so you could get a full view of the toy itself.
Honestly, we find this revamped packaging for these ML figures sort of plain compared to the old ones.
Just look for other Hasbro Marvel Legends series figures each sold separately with comic and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
These days, Hasbro has streamlined their whole ML line to come in these relatively boring boxes.
But that’s no big deal, considering that what’s important here is the Doktor Doom figure.
Packaging Could be Better
Still, it would have been nice to have a packaging that’s not unlike the Diamond Select and Marvel Select bookend style packaging.
And as you’d expect, the Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 action figure has a short bio of the character on the back of the box.
That’s similarto other toys belonging to the series.
If you look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic, you’d notice that older releases love to skimp on accessories.
That is sort of Hasbro’s way of giving us collectors the finger.
So, it’s great that the company finally wised up and decided to make their toys on par with the price they’re charging.
They do this by adding accessories and alternate body parts for their toys.
We considered dropping the whole ML line when t the Marvel Legends Human Torch figure from the most recent release had totally sub-par quality.
We’d rather collect My Hero Academia toys than spend money on something like that.
But let’s talk about this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release’s accessories, which is not bad compared to other Doctor Doom 6inch action figures out there.
It comes with a couple of alternate hands; an extra unmasked head of Doktor Doom (Viktor, if you’re feeling nasty); and four energy beams.
2 of that energy beams look like Dr. Doom’s mystical energy and the other 2 look like Iron Man’s repulsor blasts.
You also get a removable one-piece cloak and robe.
Colors of Doom!
Looking at the paint job, Hasbro really did a great job with this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release.
The same goes for their more recent ML toys as well.
If you look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic books, you’ll notice that the paint jobs aren’t usually great.
But given how Hasbro has been boosting their ML line, it’s no wonder that their quality standards have gone up, too.
That shows clearly on this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 figure.
It consists ofan amazing paint job done on the Iron Man armor that prominently features gun metal gray.
It incorporates panels of silver metallic hues; and hints of green on the legs, knees, and inner thighs.
Even the cloak and robe, extra head, hands, and energy blast accessories on this figure are on point.
That makes this a very worthy addition to any action figure collection.
This Doktor Doom figure sculpt is one of the best we’ve seen in the ML line.
We’d even go so far to say that Hasbro looks like it’s finally paying attention to what Marvel fans and collectors are ranting about online.
Both the ML and Black Series toy lines have greatly improved in quality compared to what Hasbro was doing not too long ago.
We love it (now, if only they’d do the same for their GI Joe line).
Pleases to All Fans
The sculpt on this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 action figure will definitely please both Iron Man and Doktor Doom fans alike.
It perfectly captures Infamous Iron Man from his comic book appearance.
Even more impressive, though, is the fact that they finally were able to make human face sculpts right.
No more of those usual sloppy, lazy-eyed renditions we get from ML toys in the past.
And that cape: it’s surprising that Hasbro and their ML line have finally caught up to something similar to the Marvel Select Dr. Doom throne figure.
That by the way is out favorite version of the character.
This Doctor Doom 6inch figure is up to scale with all the other characters in the toy line.
Much like other ML figures like the Marvel Legends Human Torch,
As such, Doktor Doom would be right at home should you display them with other Fantastic Four Marvels like invisible woman, human torch and hulk.
Of course, this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release wouldn’t be legit if it didn’t have that trademark multiple points of articulation.
So placing this figure in dynamic poses is a given.
So, rejoice Marvel fans and collectors: this is one Doktor Doom figure that easily makes a fine addition to your action figure display case.
As with the Johnny Storm ML figure—or any other ML figure—this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 toy features a ball joint on its head.
That means 360 degrees of unhindered motion, whether you’re moving the head vertically or from one side to another.
And you could totally enjoy all what a head ball joint has to offer here.
Especially given the sculpt of Doom’s head, which doesn’t provide much blockage as opposed to, say, a Legends Thanos figure (that chin kills articulation!).
Great Articulation of the Head
Truly, this is one aspect where ML kills it.
Not even the likes of Marvel Select figures could match this level of articulation on a figure, and we’re just only talking about the head!
And since it’s a ball joint, there’s no need to get all precious with this toy.
Simply pop it off if you want to use the alternate Viktor Von Doom head sculpt and you’re good to go.
Even if you look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic books, you’ll be hard-pressed to find bad articulation with these figures.
And this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 toy is no exception.
Its shoulders not only features a ball joint, but also employs a butterfly joint so you could bring its arms closer together.
The biceps of the Doktor Doom figurehas a swivel and, going further down, we get double-jointed elbows so you could fold them all the way through.
Then, the hands feature a ball joint, so 360 degrees of movement are a cinch to do; you shouldn’t have any problems with it.
Lastly, these hands are swappable with the alternate hand accessories that come with the whole package.
All you have to do is gently pull on those mitts and insert the alternates through their pegs.
The hands have pegs on them, too, for the repulsor blast accessories and you could just coil the mystic energy accessory around the arms as well.
Further Down Doom
Unlike the Dr. Doom thronefigure—and quite similar to the Black Series figures— this toy has an abdomen swivel that you could move up and down.
Going even further down, you’ll see that the figure has a hip swivel you could rotate all the way around on a horizontal axis.
The hips also have ball joints attached to each leg of Viktor Von Doom, so up, down, and side-to-side movements are no problem at all.
Plus, you get an additional thigh swivel on this evil Iron Man figure for additional posing possibilities.
And, it’s no surprise that this figure has double jointed knees that you could fold all the way back.
Lastly, the feet have swivels on them, which you could rotate up and down, depending on how you want to display this Iron Doom figure.
The Flaws of Doom!
There aren’t a lot of negative things we could say about this toy, really, considering the overall quality that it has.
However, it just falls short of being perfect due to the fact that, much like other ML figures, this Doom figure does not come with a stand.
Most Don’t Have a Base
But that’s fair enough: look for other Hasbro marvel legends series figures each sold separately with comic books.
You’ll find out that those, too, don’t come with any sort of base or stand with them.
But who knows? Maybe if we complain hard enough, Hasbro will up their game.
Just like they did the last time Marvel fans and collectors voiced out their disappointment with the ML line.
Only time will tell, but in the meantime, this Dr.Doom figure is sweet as it is.
Comic and movie-inspired characters have always tried their best to stay fresh, especially for a property like Marvel’s Doom or Iron Man.
In this case, we’re getting a great combination of both: the robotic look of ol’ shell head and the imposing façade of the Latverian ruler.
This Doom toy is based on Viktor Von Doom’s recent appearances on the pages of Marvel comics.
Now, we won’t burden you with a comprehensive reading list; after all, it’s all about enjoying these superheroes and villains.
All we’d say is: Marvel and Hasbro did a great job both on the comic page and these toys!
Hasbro is the largest toy manufacturer in the world right now, and that’s no exaggeration.
With properties like G.I. Joe; Star Wars’ Black Series line; and characters from Marvel universe, the company has been cranking out these plastic wonders for decades.
Whether it’s the Invisible woman, human torch and hulk, Hasbro and their ML line has got the Marvel universe covered.
In fact, we wouldn’t even be surprised if one of these days the company buys the license for My Hero Academia.
We could only imagine how cool it is to have those characters with ML-like articulation!
Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019: Our Final Word
You can’t go wrong with this figure—or any other ML toys for that matter.
So we highly recommend making this the next addition to any action figure collection out there.
From the sculpt to its paint job, right down to the number of accessories, Hasbro didn’t cut corners on this toy.
Diamond Select and their Marvel Select line may be the prime example of quality Marvel toys.
But Hasbro finally has cracked the code and is definitely inching closer to that level.
Suffice it to say that this Marvel Legends Dr. Doom 2019 release is a surefire hit that you shouldn’t miss!
