Sheng Yuan SY258 Super Heroes; Galactus, Cyborg, Jean Grey, Deadpool

Presenting...one of the most awaited Sheng Yuan's 2015 super heroes minifigures set!

Top, from left: Nova, Hawkeye (comic), Galactus, Red Robin
Bottom, left: Hawkeye (movie), Cyborg, Jean Grey (Phoenix), Deadpool (Weapon X)



The figures without weapons (except for Deadpool - he does not look like Deadpool without those dual swords =p)




Lets have a closer look on those figures. =)


1. Galactus - I think this is the best figure in this set. I love the colour, the printing, and look at that mask. I love it! 


Rating? I would happily give 4 star out of 5. I will give 5 if the size is bigger =p.

[update@July 26th 2015]: We Are Kids and several other anonymous reader has confirmed that the latest batch of SY258 contains Galactus figure with fixed long legs and arms. This is an image that has been shared by We Are Kids:




2. Hawkeye (comic)


His face is kinda weird,no? =(



3. Deadpool (fan-art)




I cannot help but to think of this face when i see deadpool in this yellow =) Hahaha...

[update@Feb 12,2015] 
I wanna say thanks to @anonymous in comment section below. Now i only know that this variant of Deadpool is fan made art.

He found the image to be from the Fandom's yellow Lantern Deadpool. 
(Hey buddy, thanks =))

4. Red Robin




5. Jean Grey (Phoenix)

I do not have original SDCC but I have one from "Doll" (on the right). 


This is the original SDCC figure (image taken from Bricklink). Which hair color is more accurate do you think?



For these 3 figures below, lets compare them with the original Lego figure (on the right)

6. Nova



7. Hawkeye (movie)


8. Cyborg


This is the worst figure in this set. Just look at his headgear below. Urgh... Ugly!
This is very awesome figure. This cyborg is actually classic variant. (thanks to those who have corrected me in comment section below. Please pardon me. i'm very noob with so many comic/cartoon character ahaha).

This is how the character looks like:

  1. Galactus & original Hawkeye are the best in these set for me! Hope they didn't made another Hawkeye from the movies, there are to many of them already. I'll wait for decool's version of Cyborg!

  2. That Cyborg version is actually accurate. It is Classic Cyborg! The lego Cyborg is from the "New 52" Comic version. So we cat another version of cyborg not released by L*go =)

  3. And the Yellow Deadpool is from the fandom's Yellow Lantern Deadpool - http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/233/b/f/yellow_lantern_deadpool_by_666darks-d47fafi.jpg. From all the searches I've done, it's not even official, just from fanart. Can someone who knows the subject better enlighten us here?

  7. Have u review some of the old ones from shengyuan like when they first started like the spiderman with carnage set or the spiderman with scarlet spider. & BTW in my country there is a brand called Beartindo. this brand fixes the error that shengyuan made, like the Bleeding Edge Suit or the NYCC comic con Iron man with proper minifig leg. I don't really like shengyuan at first because of the legs but well the third party copied shengyuan into better ones now

    1. the earliest SY set that i have is superman, ironman. but the main difference is the leg assembly. the earlier release has ugly hole behind their leg. Beartindo? i 'm very sure that brand is not available here in malaysia.. i would love to see them if you have one or two pics to share =)

    2. I just got an email from a reader from US confirms that he bought SY258 set that come with elongated version of Galactus (with longer legs and arms). Looks like I have to find a loose Galactus to replace mine. thank you for this information. I'll edit the post above to inform the reader of this update. :)

    4. Is it SY? Why is the box's logo different?

      Delete
    5. yes go ahead, you can use my picture :)

      Delete
    6. @RHM, yes it is SY, that logo is "Bertoyindo" logo, they are just importer here in Indonesia, they change the brand before distribute it.

      Delete
  12. Appreciate all your SY Marvel reviews! Before I buy I make sure I read it here first (because I'm a cheap bastard =)))

    Anyway, Yeah I agree the detail on Galactus is really great, but I hope they went for a big-fig for this.

    Check out what this guy did for his Galactus :)
