Marvel Legends Children of Thanos boxset
Ebony Maw uses the power of telekinesis to move inanimate objects and throwing them at his enemies. He can also use telekinesis to levitate himself on a battlefield.
The figure is a retool of the previously released Ebony Maw figure from the Armored Thanos wave. This time sporting a movie-accurate headsculpt and improved colors.

The new headsculpt features hair now, which was missing from the previous release.
Aside from telekinesis, Ebony Maw is also an accomplished sorcerer, capable of wielding magic against his opponents.
As a gifted tactician, Ebony Maw holds the distinction of never yet failing his “father” when on a mission.
The only female member of Thanos’ adopted children of the Black Order, Proxima Midnight is a skilled and merciless fighter. She is also the wife of fellow Black Order member, Corvus Glaive.
The figure is a retool of the Proxima Midnight from the Infinity War Thanos wave. Sporting a new headsculpt and movie-accurate colors.
Proxima Midnight from the Infinity War Thanos wave.
She comes with a sword this time around.
Of course, her most memorable weapon is her staff.
A master of hand-to-hand combat, Corvus Glaive is deadly in close combat battle. He is also the husband of Proxima Midnight and the only one of Thanos’ adopted children that still knows how to feel and show love.
The figure is a recolor of the Corvus Glaive from the Infinity War 2-pack with Loki, with a darker color scheme based from the movie.

I gotta say, the improved colors go a long way on this guy from the original 2-pack version.
Same as with the previous release, his left arm is still limited in terms of articulation due to the design of his costume.
He comes with his signature glaive weapon.
Supposedly, the glaive is connected to Corvus, as long as the glaive remains intact, he can regenerate and come back to life indefinitely.
The biggest and physically strongest of Thanos’ adopted children, Cull Obsidian hardly ever speaks in the movies.
The figure is practically an entirely new release, with the exception of the head and arms. The design is definitely more screen accurate for the big guy.

This guy is my main reason for getting this set. The others only had minor cosmetic changes, like the headsculpts, but this big fella has a whole new body.
He comes with his big melee weapon.
While Cull Obsidian is insanely strong and durable, he cannot regenerate lost limbs and can actually die in battle, as shown when he was killed by a “Hulkbuster armor-sporting” Bruce Banner in Infinity war, and again after getting stepped on by giant Ant-Man in the finale battle in Endgame.
The “mad titan” Thanos dreams of bringing balance to the universe. To achieve this, he plans to extend the universe’s limited resources by eliminating half of the population of the entire universe, even if it takes one planet at a time, ensuring the survival of all species.
The figure is a redeco of the BAF figure from the Infinity War Thanos wave with a better shade of skin tone.

Lol… Thanos looks goofy when he’s happy.
The colors are a great improvement over the previous version.
Sadly, Thanos only comes with a fixed left “finger-snapping” hand, no alternate closed left fist included.
Thanos does come with an alternate head and left arm, showing damage he had taken from creating a snap that destroyed the infinity stones as seen in Endgame.
Uhh… shouldn’t the stones be not here anymore..?
Thanos and his entourage.
Each figure of the Black Order is really tall, compared to your garden variety 6 inch Marvel Legends figure.
Orphaned, adopted and trained by Thanos himself to become his loyal generals in battle, each member of the Black Order is highly formidable and highly dangerous. They fiercely serve Thanos and his goal of eliminating the universe’s population by half.
Overall, an impressive set! The new sculpts and colors really vastly improve over the previous releases! All the figures really look exactly like their movie counterparts. The downside is that this was an Amazon exclusive and wasn’t readily available at mass retail. The set went for crazy prices pretty quickly after Amazon sold out.
