Final thoughts:

The Ares BAF has been on my wishlist ever since I was introduced to the wonderful world of Marvel Legends. I was lucky enough to pick it up at a decent price from a local seller even though “decent” is still probably 3 – 5 times what it originally cost back in 2008. The design looks really nice, but one key articulation point really let this figure down, and that was the neck. His head is forever pointing slightly downwards, you can’t tilt it up or down at all and even when you rotate it, the head rotates on an angle. Luckily his helmet can hide this to some extent, so it’s still a beautiful piece to own.
