I don't know how but I happened upon a video review of the Juggernaut on YouTube and I couldn't believe what I saw. This didn't look like a toy at all and yet had articulation like an action figure. Not only that but he looks exactly like I remember him from the X-Men comics. That's something most toys don't do. They look like toys. They're disproportionate, lack details and are cartoony looking at best. I've seen some solid looking figures in the Marvel Legends line but the Selects take it to a whole new level. These are premium figures that for once, make me feel like I'm really getting my money's worth.
From head to toe, the Juggernaut is extremely well sculpted. He's proportioned correctly, has a menacing face, his helmet is the correct dome shape (instead of cone shaped like past versions) and along with his arm bands, is brushed to show scratches and other signs of wear. His clothing is the correct color and his boots look great all the way down to the soles which have treads on them. That's something rarely seen in an action figure. But this isn't a mere action figure, it's a work of art. Model quality sculpting with action figure posability. There was never anything close to this quality when I was a kid and even in recent years, action figures have rarely reached this level of detail. Only static models could do this but most of them were far from flexible. I also can't go without saying how big and heavy this guy is. He really has to be seen to be believed! He's so heavy, you'd think he was made of die cast metal. If I could change anything, I'd like his hands to move independently from his arms but it doesn't tarnish him for me. He's absolutely perfect and my high mark for figurines of this kind. It just doesn't get any better than this. He's also the first of my new collection.
All this to say, the Juggernaut is an incredible figure and worth every penny paid for him. I've seen much smaller and less detailed figures going for more than this. This guy is absolutely worth it. I guarantee you'll be amazed by the sheer size and weight of him alone. While I wouldn't advise him for younger children to beat up with rougher style play, he's fine for older kids who take care of their things, young adults and big kids like me. Free him from his package, recycle it and put him out on display for the world to see. He's bound to draw double takes and comments in no time. For anyone interested in Marvel characters, models or action figures, the Juggernaut is a no brainer recommendation. As far as I'm concerned, this is as good as it gets.
Here's my basic rundown of "the good, the bad, and the ugly" on this figure: The good - absolutely amazing detail, in both sculpt and paint apps; huge, in both mass an height; heavy, this is a big chunk of plastic; well articulated, some minor articulation issues, but overall really good; best Juggernaut action figure, still no better version to date, as far as I can tell. The bad - minor articulation and balance issues, that's about it. The ugly - paint apps are mostly amazing, but there are a few minor paint issues.
So yeah, the detail in both sculpt and paint apps are amazing. I have plenty of experience with 6" Marvel Legends throughout the years, and I've noticed how much better and more detailed the Marvel Select figures looked than Marvel Legends (especially the Hasbro ones). But, having collected so many Legends and other 6" superhero figures, I didn't want to start a new scale for Marvel and superheroes, being that Select were 7" scale. Thanks to my friend and giving me this Juggernaut figure, I'm totally sold on Marvel Select and will probably mostly pass on Marvel Legends from now on. All the sculpted details and textures all throughout the figure are very impressive, with paint detailing to match.
This Juggernaut stands a whopping 9" tall, so even for the 7" scale he is pretty massive. Really beefy too, just as Juggs should be, and super solid, he weighs about 2.75 pounds (around 3.5" packaged). That's a lot of figure for just a little over $20. I'm sure many have said it before me, but I feel like you really get your money's worth with this one. Articulation is mostly great, with just a few points less than a super articulated Marvel Legends style figure. Which, for this character at least, is just fine. You really don't need super articulation on Juggernaut, you mostly want him to be able to charge and punch. Maybe the only other articulation I would have liked, but even without it he's fine, is wrist articulation. Other than that, the number of points of articulation are sufficient.
But, that is also where we run into my only issues with this Juggernaut figure. Even though the points of articulation are there, there is a lack of range of motion in the legs, particularly the hips and ankles, which prevent him from getting into a really good running/charging pose, which also happens to be in my opinion the most important pose you should be able to put Juggernaut in. Subsequently, the ankles have both the issue of range of motion (not being able to go forward and back very much, though moving side to side well), but also balance. The ankle joints seem to be a little less solid than the other joints, and on copy of the figure anyway are kind of loose. Which because of the sheer weight of the figure, the ankles should be the tightest joints on him to prevent falling over. As it is, again with mine anyway, he is a bit prone to falling over if bumped.
Only other minor issue is a little bit of paint run, or lack of paint on a few areas of the figure. But, nothing major that really takes away from how good he looks, and mostly only noticeable when taking a really close look at the figure. He did include a little card backdrop, which pretty much too small to be any good to display with Juggernaut, but this does not take away from the figure in the least. Otherwise overall, definitely very much impressed with my first Marvel Select figure. Even with the minor issues I found with him, he still is amazing and looks great being displayed. Highly recommending this Juggernaut and I totally plan to add more Marvel Select figures to my collection!
I did have one problem, though. I opened the packaging in order to display our new Juggernaut and--right outta the box, mind you--his left leg popped off. Literally, I took the figure out of his package (after untying those stupid twist ties!!) and his leg fell to the counter below. I was more than a little disappointed with that. But this Dad was not about to let that beat me and I got the leg back in place...and it seems to be holding.
Overall, this thing is awesome. It dwarfs all of our other figures (except The Sentinel, of course).
