Super-Articulate: Marvel Legends Retro X-Men

Greetings and welcome back! Today we’re looking at the Marvel Legends Retro X-Men assortment, which is in-stores now. I’ve also seen this referred to as the Vintage X-Men wave, but HasbroPulse lists the figures as Retro, so we’re going with that. We’d like to thank Hasbro for providing these figures free for the purposes of review. Let’s get started.

Dazzler: When the announcements came down, this was the figure in the group that made me the most excited. You’ve probably seen people refer to this one as “Outback Dazzler.” If you didn’t know, that’s in reference to the ‘80s storyline just after “Fall of the Mutants.” The world believes that the X-Men died fighting the Adversary, but they’re really operating out of the former Reaver base in the Australian Outback. This ran from Uncanny X-Men #229 to, more or less, issue #253 (most of the X-Men finish going through the Siege Perilous in #251, the same issue where Wolverine is crucified by the Reavers; Jubilee rescues him, and we start seeing where the X-Men are popping up around the world in #253. Got that? It’s good stuff, and it also includes costumes for Rogue (black and green) and Psylocke (the armor) that would made cool figures, too). Dazzler also sported this costume in the X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men animated pilot and the awesome stand-up arcade game by Konami.

AND . . . I am NOT disappointed. This is a great figure. It’s one of those cases where it feels like the character was peeled right off the page. Marc Silvestri drew the bulk of that run, and they did him proud here. The only possible improvement, in my opinion, would have been the inclusion of an extra “finger-gun” hand. But man, did they get the little details right. The red band on the leg, the star on the other leg, the separate belt, the jacket, the headband, the fit of the gloves . . . those bits are all outstanding. I’ve also been increasingly happy with the hair work that the ML team is doing; their rendition of Dazzler’s do is no exception. This is superior work, and I can’t believe that we’ve gotten both classic renditions of Dazzler in such a short time.

Storm: Honesty time. I was bummed that this wasn’t First Appearance/Dave Cockrum-costume Storm. The line needs that figure. However, I understand this iteration of Storm was in big demand, and they did a bang-up job on her. The hair and face sculpts are the stand-outs, here. The cape is good; it can be a little difficult to pose the figure with the cape, considering the shoulder pieces, but those pieces are a necessary (and nice-looking) inclusion. The lightning effects are an obvious, but welcome, inclusion. This figure is a fine piece of work, but I was not its target audience.

Wolverine: Marvel Legends: Keeping Wolverine short! Yes! I love the continued emphasis on Wolverine’s diminutive stature. This is also a figure that’s been long-awaited by big portions of the fandom. It reflects that costume that Wolverine wore in his first ongoing solo series, right from the cover of the first issue. The angry/berserker face is inspired by that cover as well. It’s a nice-sculpt and definitely poseable, and it comes with extra non-clawed fists and a samurai sword. It’s also appropriate that we get this version in an assortment with . . .

Silver Samurai: I honestly can’t believe it’s taken this long to get to Silver Samurai in the Legends vertical, but I’ll take it. This guy’s got insanely detailed armor, a perfect in-character expression, and solid work on all the details from the helmet on down. I like that he’s big, but not excessive; he’s not Cull Obsidian-sized, after all. Silver Samurai first appeared in 1974, and for a few years he battled the likes of Spider-Man, Daredevil, Black Widow, and Shang-Chi. He and Viper ran up against the New Mutants in issue #5 and 6 or their original series before heading into the classic battle with Wolverine and Rogue in Uncanny X-Men #172-174. For that reason, I took some extra pics with Viper (Madame Hydra) and the appropriately-costumed Wolverine. This one looks good, kids. He’s a great addition to your gallery of X-villains.

Iceman: I think this Iceman is (don’t say it, don’t say it) pretty cool. I like the crystallization effects in the paint op, and the separation on the belt is nice. The ice-sled stand is a good piece. I’m not sure how much demand there was for Iceman after the recent previous version, but I suspect that there were a fair number of people that missed that one that now get a chance to own this one, and increased availability or repeat offerings are never a bad thing. I’m marking this one for display with my X-Factor subsection, which is also going to include . . .

Cyclops: In the land of awesome head sculpts, the new Cyke is royalty. Let’s roll back to the history a minute: this costume debuted on the cover of the original X-Factor #1, and it was also the costume used for the very first Cyclops figure from the original Toy Biz line of X-Men figures in the ‘90s. There was a previous ML variant of this outfit, but this new figure is The Stuff. Aside from just generally great sculpting and the classic “two-finger trigger gesture” on the left hand, it’s a strong representation. The best part, for me, would have to be the two heads and the optic blast accessory. The first head has a terrific “energy leak” feature, demonstrating the smolder that artists frequently depict as emanating from Cyke’s visor, post-blast. The second head is made to accommodate the insertion of the optic blast accessory into the visor, and it’s just great. Hasbro has really upped the game on power accessories in the past couple of years (Psylocke’s butterfly, the frequent magic/light/energy attachments, the lightning, etc.), but this is a champ. It literally looks like a Walt Simonson-drawn optic blast. As a big fan of Scott Summers, this figure is DEFINITELY made for me, and it is most welcome.

There you go, mutant-lovers. How do you feel about this wave? What’s your favorite? Tune in next week when we take a look at the X-Force wave that features the Wendigo Build-A-Figure. Thanks for reading!

Super-Articulate: Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary Wolverine and Hulk

Greetings, True Believers! Things are really coming up green in Marveland this week. We had the announce a few days ago of the impending Disney+ She-Hulk series. The Immortal Hulk continues to be a Top Ten sales force in comic shops. And we’ve got this excellent new boxed set/two-pack, part of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends program that celebrates the 80th Anniversary of Marvel. Let’s dig in to the Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary Wolverine and Hulk set. But first, thank you to Hasbro for providing us with free samples for the purposes of review! Let’s go.

The History: This set is based on the first three appearances of Wolverine in the pages (well, the final page) of The Incredible Hulk #180 (October 1974 cover date), the subsequent The Incredible Hulk #181 (his first “full” appearance, the cover of which is featured on the back of the box), and #182. Wolverine was created by writer Len Wein (after a name suggestion by Roy Thomas) and artist John Romita Sr. He gets involved in the story when Department H sends him to try to stop a fight between the Hulk and the Wendigo (presently the BAF in the current X-Force assortment) that is tearing up Wolverine’s home and native land, Canada. After the Wendigo is defeated (actually, the curse is transferred to another person in a plot that will pay off in Uncanny X-Men #139 and #140 a few years later), Wolverine doesn’t pop back up again until he joins the X-Men in Giant-Size X-Men #1 the following year, also written by Wein. It’s worth noting that the Hulk is this period is in a savage Hulk phase (hence the shredded shirt on the figure).

Uncanny X-Men #142

Wolverine: I’m starting with Wolverine because he’s on the left and we read left to right in America (and Canada). I have to say that the first thing I love about this figure is the SIZE. He’s SMALL. Wolverine was supposed to be, well, short. The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and other resources list him at 5’3”. Look at this panel from Uncanny X-Men #142, and see him in comparison to Storm. Based on all that, they get the size of the figure just right here. The Hasbro team also really captured that original mask; it’s markedly different that the mask he wears in X-Men and beyond, and they showed that. The ability to move the shoulder pieces independently of the arms to enhance poseability is a surprising, and good, choice. The flairs on the boots like solid as well. The figure also carries a really solid paint job, and that facial expression is on point. Wolverine comes with two sets of hands (claws popped, and claws retracted). They did a really great job on a figure that captures a slice of Marvel history. I’m personally putting him on my “First Appearance” shelf. Well done.

Hulk: Holy God of Gamma Rays. This figure is HUGE. I mean, it’s BIG. It’s Big McLarge Huge. Just, DAMN. I admit to being a little hesitant when this one was announced because I feel pretty good about the Hulks that I have. Then I saw this in person. This is MASSIVE. Hasbro has done a really, really good job in the past few years with BIG figures or figures that cover a big area (for example: Hulkbuster Iron Man, Cull Obsidian, Sauron, etc.), and this is definitely no exception. Look at that picture of the figure holding Wolverine up by the head. THAT is what I would expect the scale of the Hulk to be against someone the size of comic-accurate Wolverine. Add that girth to the fact that it’s still an extremely poseable figure, and you have a big winner. I really like the torn shirt (which is removable, of course, but I dig it) and the face that the tattered pants have texture and separation at the leg. The face is dead-on. Hulk comes with two sets of hands (two open, two fists) for your various display/play/video-making needs. I wouldn’t have thought that simple hugeness would win me over so effectively, but I can’t help but smile at this figure. I almost feel that he was inspired a bit by the 12” Mego Hulk of the late 1970s (which is definitely a positive on my end). This Hulk turned out . . . sigh . . . incredibly.

Where To Get: HasbroPulse.com, Entertainment Earth, GameStop, and other fan channels are taking orders RIGHT NOW.

Recommended: Heck yeah, bub.

What’s Next?: I’ll see you soon with two more 80th Anniversary Marvel Legends: Cap and Iron Man.

Wolverine Exit Wounds #1

Acts of Evil Concludes this September!

The melee is on as “Acts of Evil” enters its final round! Modeled after the 1989-90 fan-favorite storyline “Acts of Vengeance,” “Acts of Evil” pits Marvel mainstays against mismatched and unexpected foes, and this September, Ghost-Spider, Wolverine, and Moon Knight will be the ones battling for their lives!

Spanning eight Annuals across three months, “Acts of Evil” kicks off this July, with Venom: Eddie Brock, Ms. Marvel and The Punisher squaring off against extraterrestrial power players Lady Hellbender, the Super-Skrull and the Brood Queen! And it’s Deadpool Vs. Nightmare, plus She-Hulk Vs. Bullseye the following month!

This September, the opposition’s just as strange! Ghost-Spider: Gwen Stacy scrambles through Arcade’s Murderworld, facing a tower of terror as she takes on some of the deadliest Marvel villains! Then, Moon Knight’s up to bat against Avengers menace Kang the Conqueror! And Khonshu’s avatar must find a way to fix the time stream before Kang fulfills an ancient grudge! Finally, it’s berserker strength vs. magical mayhem, as Wolverine takes on sorceress Morgan le Fay…in 1930s Hollywood!
