Measured in scale with the Marvel Legends figures, or even many of the Select figures, Thanos is a massive depiction. Just a broad, heavy figure, impressive both in terms of aesthetic and articulation. Physically, he looks just a little bit like a cross between a Skrull and a purple-tinged version of Darkseid. He’s clad in his atypical uniform, the skullcap, the shoulder harness, the belted doublet, the gloves and the cuffed boots; he comes included with an alternate glove hand sporting the jewel-studded Infinity Gauntlet. Additionally, Thanos comes included with a non-articulated figure of his girlfriend, Death, the latter of whom is sculpted with a skull countenance but comes included with an add-on human face more congruous to her curvaceous form.
Thanos was an Eternal unexplainably born dark and deformed. He dedicated his existence to the stimulation of both his physical and mental prowess. By various means of augmentation, he improved upon his already godlike powers and abilities. He became obsessed with the sentient entity of Death, and presumably, to some degree, she with Thanos. Accordingly, Thanos committed acts of atrocity and mass murder to win her favor. Amidst all of his gloomy, labyrinthine schemes and cosmic-level imprecations, Thanos eventually earned the ire of several notable superheroes. At one point he acquired the Cosmic Cube, and then later he created the Infinity Gauntlet, both of which ultimately slipped from his grasp.
