Next up, Mystique! We’ve got two mystique in her classic costume so far; Toybiz Mystique from the Sentinel BAF Wave and Hasbro Mystique (Walgreens Exclusive). There is actually another mystique that was released in the Epic Heroes wave, but she’s in a different costume.

Toybiz Mystique does not come with anything except for the Sentinel BAF part and a generic Toybiz clear figure stand (I don’t have a picture of it).

Hasbro Mystique packs a punch with two guns and an alternate mid-changing Rogue head.

Toybiz Mystique’s costume has a bare back, which kinda doesn’t make sense as how can the front part stay to her body by just the small part around her neck? Oh well maybe I’m overthinking, but if someone was fighting in such a costume, the entire front part of the attire will be flapping around. Heh.

Hasbro Mystique has a better looking attire, with the white arm sleeves going higher, waist cloth narrower and longer, and no longer having a bare back. Heh.

Differences

Using the new female Hasbro body mold, Hasbro Mystique is definitely better in proportion and articulation (except for that missing bicep swivel in most female Hasbro body mold!). All the Toybiz female character in this Toybiz body mold sucks (in my opinion at least).

And look at that height difference! The Hasbro Mystique scales well with the newer Marvel Legends.

Look at that. The Hasbro head is waaaaaay better. Even the skull sculpt is better for Hasbro Mystique. The Hasbro hair is gorgeous too. And so is the expression for Hasbro Mystique. Toybiz loses this one in all aspects.

The belt is the only light that shines for the Toybiz Mystique. Look at the sculpt and details for each skull at the belt for Toybiz Mystique. Hasbro Mystique’s belt is decent, but Toybiz Mystique’s belt is really awesome. Too bad its glued to the figure, it’d be hard to customized and exchange their belts.

Hasbro Mystique’s belt is loose and not glued to the body; it just sits at the waist.

Look at those awful Toybiz hands. The finger articulation is really useless. Hasbro does it better with alternate hands, although this Mystique doesn’t come with any. But still, I’ll take that gun-trigger hand over the Toybiz hands.

Oh, and the right hands swivels up and down instead of left and right, for the Hasbro Mystique.

And here is the mid-changing Rogue face. It can be used for Rogue or Mystique herself, or up to your creativity. It’s a cool alternate head.

TL;DR

Marvel Legends - Toybiz Mystique (Sentinel BAF Wave) vs Hasbro Mystique (Walgreens Exclusive)

Toybiz Mystique (Sentinel BAF Wave):

+ Well sculpted skull belt

– Scrawny Toybiz female body mold

– No additional accessories like weapons (only come with generic Toybiz clear figure stand)

– Head sculpt not as nice; skull on forehead poorly done

Marvel Legends - Toybiz Mystique (Sentinel BAF Wave) vs Hasbro Mystique (Walgreens Exclusive)

Hasbro Mystique (Walgreens Exclusive):

+ Better body mold

+ Better head sculpt; better facial expression, hair and skull on forehead

+ Comes with hand gun and machine gun

+ Comes with mid-changing Rogue head

+ Better looking costume (cloth at waist is longer and narrower, back is covered instead of bareback)

My Verdict

Marvel Legends - Toybiz Mystique (Sentinel BAF Wave) vs Hasbro Mystique (Walgreens Exclusive)

As always, Hasbro female characters are superior to Toybiz female characters. Hasbro has really done a good job re-releasing plenty of female characters that Toybiz has done. The only minor gripe is that most female Hasbro character lacks the bicep swivel joint, but still, the new female Hasbro body mold is great, and so is this Hasbro Mystique.
