Who came up with the action figure variant covers? Because that idea was gold. Nostalgia for the old Toy Biz blister packs.

Yikes... Psylocke is terrible looking now. Why would they ruin such an awesome iconic character by undoing her wild backstory??? One of the best things to ever happen to Psylocke was her transformation into a new body. I don’t understand what the motivation behind doing this..

So are the Action Figure Variant Covers just strictly an alternate front cover of the comic book or do they actually make these figures for real? Because these look awesome!

I also hated it. Thank God Hasbro released her figure before that. About the why they did it, I have some ideas. In the world we live in now, some guys at Marvel though thea perhaps she was like "culture appropriation"  or something like that. To me, Psylocke will always be  the purple haired ninja in a bathing suit like uniform.

Wow maybe I was wrong and this is the new look. I really like the cannonball and Bishop look but...yikes. I don’t know about this Psylocke. People need to stop being so hysterical about the cultural appropriation thing if that’s wha it is, which makes sense. . It’s so much nonsense. We can’t influence each other and share  and be inspired anymore?

Not to keep harping on this.. but it really does bother me. I really loved the way they developed Psylocke, much like that of Archangel, Beast, Rogue.. etc. This CTRL-Z change is lame. Besides the fact they remove all curves from Betsy.. where are her hips? No disrespect to anyone when I say this, but they now draw her like she is a trans woman. Her original body before the blue bathing suit had hips and curves. I just don’t understand.

Idk how I feel about Psylockes new costume. It looks okay it may grow on me. And what’s the deal with the blonde hair? Is it true that they are giving her old body back to her? Seems like an odd thing to do, (kinda wished they didn’t) but we’ll see. 

Bishops revamped costume looks pretty cool though.

I have always wanted them to make actual figures based off of the the action figure covers. I could see them doing a line based on that. I really think people would buy them too!

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
