WHAT is the obsession with bare legs on Puck? I got rid of that almost immediately.

I hate hate hate what Hasbro did to the line.

The '99* Snowbird can never be topped, IMO.

*20 years ago?!?!?!?!?

Shoving bamboo under my fingernails, this set not only gives us Heather as Guardian*, but totally messes up the flag on the costume.

* A reminder that Vindicator was Chris’ name for the character, taken from a British (not Canadian) jet fighter.

They could have gotten away with a “civilian Heather” in a box set... missed opportunity :(

When I first heard about this, I was very excited, but when I saw the set I was VERY disappointed:

1) Have NEVER liked Heather as a costumed hero
2) No Sasquatch figure (a non-starter for any purported ALPHA FLIGHT set)
3) No Marrina

They’ve released a Guardian figure and a Sasquatch build-a-figure in recent X-Men releases.

Think how Stan and Jack must have felt about the grey hulk.

Funko Pops has a cute series of the original X-Men, in their school uniforms. Blue, unfortunately, but that’s easily corrected.

(Depressing, tho, to Google “Funko Pops X-Men” and find a seemingly endless celebration of everything that went wrong with those characters.)
