Since the Wasp isn't properly in the Ant-Man movie, this series of Marvel Legends gets the next best thing with a comic based figure of her. Her previous Marvel Legends figure was the same costume. Given how likely Jan is to change costumes, one would think that a different costume would be appropriate in a newer figure. Oh well. Thanks to the wings on her back, the Wasp isn't the easiest figure to get standing. As it is, she's kind of hunched over. She doesn't have any accessories, unless you count her wings (which are removable) and the build a figure piece that she's packaged with.

When it comes to toys, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is no Avengers. Fortunately, there is at least a Marvel Legends version of Ant-Man. Interestingly, this is the wave that has Ultron as a build-a-figure. I suppose it's appropriate in that the comic version of Ultron was created by Hank Pym. Anyway, here's Ant-Man in his movie inaccurate helmet. I'm not sure if they were working off early concept art or what, but the helmet doesn't have an exposed mouth like that. Ah, well, whatever. Otherwise, the costume is pretty accurate.
Ant-Man comes with a couple of nice accessories: a miniaturized version of himself, his trusty steed Ant-ony, and a miniaturized Yellowjacket. Sadly, I think that's the only version of Yellowjacket that Hasbro is making. Who needs figures of the antagonists, right?
