For today’s review, we will be taking a look at the brand new Marvel Legends U.S. Agent figure based on his look at the end of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier Disney+ series. The Marvel Legends Series is a lower-tier toy line that both collectors and non-collectors alike would be interested in. This is an action figure line based on the characters of Marvel Comics, initially produced by Toy Biz, then by Hasbro. This line is in the 6-inch (150 mm) scale, with spin-off lines in the 4-inch (100 mm), 8-inch (200 mm), and 12-inch (300 mm) scale. these figures tend to look good inside and outside the box.
PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
U.S. Agent comes packed in the stranded Marvel Legends Series box. The top of the box has the Build-A-Figure logo, this wave is for The wings of Captain America, and the Legends Series logo is right below it. The U.S. Agent figure is displayed in the middle through the large window that showcases the figure as well as the accessories. This gives great visibility to collectors that may not be opening it. Moving to the bottom of the box, you have The Falcon and the Winter Soldier logo as this is a part of the tv shows line. Right below the logo, we have the figure’s name. On the left side of the box, we get some artwork of U.S. Agent. On the back of the box, we have the same picture of U.S. Agent as well as a small bio. Below that we have a lineup of the rest of the figures you need to complete the wings for Captain America. Flipping the box to the right side now, you see we get the same artwork again.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Taking U.S. Agent out of the box we get to take a look at all the details of this figure. Unfortunately, this figure is missing a lot of paint. Dwight Stall, The Senior Product Manager at Hasbro, has come out and said that the paint on the figure was based on concept artwork they got from the show, and it was already too late to add the missing white. The box artwork is how the figure should look with the red and white strips going down the chest.
ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
U.S. Agent comes with left and right closed fists, right open hand with pointer finger out, left gripping hand, and a Build-A-Wing piece.

RATING: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
PAINT JOB 2/5 - For what paint is on the figure it is very well done, however, the figure is inaccurate to how U.S. Agent appeared at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Solider.
FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - The sculpt is very spot on to what we saw in the show.
POSING 5/5 - Just about every move or pose you would like to get him in you can
ACCESSORIES: 1/5 - now I understand we didn’t see him with a shield at the end of the show, but you give him a gun-holding hand with no gun???
DURABILITY 5/5 - The plastic is strong and nothing feels like it will snap.
OVERALL SCORE 3.6/5 - The figure is fun, with just the right paint apps and a few more accessories it would be a home run
RETAIL COST: $19.99 I PICKED MINE UP AT MY LOCAL TARGET.
TIME FOR SOME TOYING AROUND!!
