Marvel Legends Domino figure review – BAF Sasquatch Wave

Time for another long overdue Marvel Legends review. In fairness, I didn’t have a ton of motivation to complete the Build A Figure Sasquatch wave with little progression on building either Alpha Flight or X-Force. With that changed lately, I figured I’d knock out the Marvel Legends Domino figure and get one step closer to finishing Sasquatch.

Packaging:   Domino sticks with the Deadpool logo and gets the added Marvel’s Domino tag. The side portrait is fine showing Domino in action. The bio explains her power set, but again doesn’t mention X-Force or her affiliation with Cable or Deadpool.

Likeness:  Domino is one of those characters that’s never really had a definitive look so it’s important to have a kind of generic looking take on her. I’m partial to her more armored-up Rob Liefeld/Greg Capullo take. Sexy Domino always felt a little weird.

Earlier, Domino tended to wear a headpiece and it helped to distinguish her from other characters. Maybe we can get a more 90s style Domino like Hasbro has done with Cable and Deadpool.

There’s some minor armor plating on the gauntlets, knee pads and shins. It makes the leather jacket/corset look very unpractical even for a comic book outfit. I like the head sculpt, which was later repurposed for the Marvel Legends Wasp figure.

Paint:  Domino doesn’t have a ton of paint applications —another reason I would have preferred the earlier costumes with some purple in the mix. The armor plating has a terrific dirty grey/pewter paint job and looks like aged armor.

Domino’s white skin came out really nice and has a sheen different than the normal white Hasbro uses for clothing. The blue lipstick came out terrific as well and helps provide a little pop.

Scale:  Domino seems scaled properly. She doesn’t have super heels so she’s not towering over Cable or anything.

Articulation:  Domino moves pretty fluidly and she’s a fun figure to pose in shootout scenes.

Accessories:  Like Cable, Domino comes with a larger side blaster and a much smaller futuristic pistol. I appreciate the purple shade for these despite normally thinking that makes it look too much like toys. It seems fitting for the character.

I really appreciate that Hasbro has two open hands so Domino can wield both guns at once.

Finally, Domino comes with the right arm of the Build-A-Figure Sasquatch.

Worth it?  I grabbed Domino for $15. That’s a good price for a figure who is an essential member of X-Force.

Rating:  9.5 out of 10

Yes, I definitely want a 90s Domino, but for now this one will do just fine.

Where to get it?  Domino is still available on Amazon.com for under $18, which is a solid deal as I expect the BAF Sasquatch wave to skyrocket in demand once the Alpha Flight box set comes out.
