Jocasta had a brief run as a regular member of the Avengers and hasn’t been a prominent member of the team for awhile.
We’re at the point now that Hasbro is running out of first time in the line Avengers to add in Marvel Legends so while she wasn’t on my Top 10 or 20, it’s nice to get an original figure in their ranks. Let’s see if Hasbro needs to go back to the lab with this one.
Packaging: This is the standard packaging setup making me appreciate the occasional unique color scheme even more. As usual the package art is sweet — I love how comic artwork is such a major component of the packaging.
The bio is pretty good even referencing her affiliation with the Avengers.
Likeness: My first exposure to Jocasta was when George Perez drew her, which set my sculpt expectations very high. Hasbro’s sculptors knocked her out with a terrific head sculpt. Surprisingly Jocasta has an original sculpt for the lining of her shell/body and the diamond in her belly button.
Her left leg band was also sculpted with all the round elements. The sculpt is lacking the high gloves and the lined boots.
Paint: There’s not a ton of paintwork here, which isn’t shocking given her design. There is so nice two-tone work with a brighter silver for the design elements and a darker almost platinum. She does have the bright red eyes, which were done very nicely.

Scale: Jocasta is an android, but I don’t recall her being excessively taller than the average female figure. She seems scaled properly next to Iron Man and Vision.
Articulation: Jocasta seems like a reuse of the Rogue body, which means she has the rare bicep joint articulation and can pull off more poses than the normal female figure.

Accessories: Jocasta isn’t the kind of character that would lend itself to a lot of accessories so it wasn’t surprising to see her with minimal offerings in this category.
She does come with a pair of gesturing hands. It’s a sensible inclusion for her.
Additionally, Jocasta has the torso of the Build-A-Figure Joe Fixit.
Worth it? I got Jocasta for the standard $20. That usual great value isn’t necessarily there if you’re not interested in building the BAF. I’ll end up having all but the arms of Fixit, which is probably enough to warrant getting him later.
Rating: 9.5 out of 10
This is a well done Jocasta figure that would have earned the perfect score with the rest of the linework and gloves. She’s not going to be the standout of this wave, but it’s nice to have another Avenger in the display.
