Alright, this was as close as we were going to get to see Scarlet Witch and Vision in their most iconic costumes. So much of WandaVision was like that, though. There were hints of great things to come, but they turned out to be teases or just red herrings … like Quicksilver.
Regardless, Iron Studios again delivers remarkable likenesses of Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as the Avengers power couple. These 1/10th scale statues will be available between July and September 2022. The two come separately with a price tag of $139.99 apiece.
During Halloween in the small town of Westview, New Jersey, the syntozoid Vision, formerly an ally of the Avengers, says goodbye to his wife Wanda Maximoff, with whom he shares an idyllic suburban life, along with their children Billy and Tommy, and his brother-in-law, Pietro. Vision is a volunteer on the community surveillance patrol and leaves for duty properly dressed, as the date requires. He is wearing a costume similar to the original version of the character in the comics, but with the characteristics of cosplay, in a more laid-back way, with sports shorts, sneakers, and yellow socks. His costume has such an iconic look that he compares it to a Mexican wrestler, who stands out for their colorful costumes and masks.
The sculptors over at Iron Studios are impressive. They manage to capture faces so well. Some toy companies need to hire these folks to handle other Marvel lines. Hell, McFarlane needs these people. I’ve got great respect for Todd’s toy company, but the likenesses on the DC and other licensed toys suffer when it comes to the faces.
What are your thoughts on WandaVision? Too experimental and misguided with its message, or a great addition to the MCU lore? Let us know in the comments section.
