Moon Knight was first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 published in 1975 as an antagonist to Werewolf by Night, another Marvel Comics character. Moon Knight is the champion of the Egyptian god Khonshu. He has no powers but use Egyptian-themed weaponry and gadgets in his fight against evil. This action figure is one of the best from Hasbro. It’s made of good plastics and has great articulations. I especially enjoy the “naked” look without the cape. Moon Knight becomes this tight fighting machine that looks like he can do real damage.
The articulations are good and so is the sculpt. Moon Knight’s balance is good even with the cape on. The grey paint used on his body has a silver finish that has always been hinted at in the comic books but hard to illustrate well. The cape is easy to remove and in a sense covers so much of the action figure that it hides how well it’s designed. Moon Knight’s base should be used for other Marvel Legends toys.
