That Red Guardian has one big nose

Just the words I am looking for to describe the face...seems this black widow wave was rushed to completion...not that good in quality control.

They've all looked like basic figures so far, like Hasbro took a leap back with this wave

Yeah i was willing to reserve judgement when RG didn't look great in the promo pics, but now we've got another batch of pics from a reviewer and he still looks subpar. Weird since hasbro generally nails it.

I wonder... with the movie being postponed, will Hasbro choose to delay the release of this wave?

It's already out in shops

Reviewer doesn't like the gray instead of white on the outfit, and I agree. He says Marvel didn't send the correct info to Hasbro in time for production...not sure how he would know that unless they told him, and don't know why that would happen. But it doesn't matter since every version of the Red Guardian has been red and white, not gray.

They chose to not include a helmeted head, which makes no sense but if, IF, they had pulled off a better David Harbour likeness, I might have been able to forgive....nah, not really. Add that with the limited head/elbow articulation, its just overall a pass for me. I'll stick with the comic version.

What's makes things worst is that the packaging art shows him with his helmet.

Given that there may be flashbacks, I think Hasbro were given the younger design of the character by Marvel Studios. Not hasbro fault just how concepts for character keep changing right until the release.

It's not all bad! What about...the... um.... ah... and... no, I got absolutely nothing good to say about this. This really is bad. 

And packaging grievances mentioned: definitely agree. If Hasbro can't be bothered (or can't afford or that movie logistics made it impossible) to provide a swap head which actually makes the figure resemble the box art, you change the box art. Or nix the figure. 

This is definitely why I've gone Marvel Legends comic-based waves/figures only. Movies not only have a super-short shelf life (or possibly none at all with the Black Widow movie: my understanding is that Sky and/or Disney+ are going to screen it TV only in the UK & US) but the movie figures require infinitely more bespoke parts, have multiple manufacturing issues, get crummy redecos and often very cool, established comic figures become just plot macguffins or dull non-entities (e. g. every Kree & Skrull and every other character except the CGI cat in Captain Marvel). 

I'm not saying all comic-based Legends = good & all movie-based figures = bad, but I would say that the ultra, ultra simple comic-based Red Guardian figure (cheap, quick Cap repaint with new head) from the Red Onslaught wave kills this in every way. And that's just one example.

what changing concepts? The first promotional images of the Red Guardian had him with a helmet, most promo material showed him with a helmet. I seriously doubt Hasbro didn't have access to promotional material way before it was released
