But it makes no sense, Cyclops eyes or visor  don't crackle with energy.

I mean, I wish they were removable and/or he had a head without them as well, but c'mon...  That's just silly.

Some of them especially (ironically) the X-Factor costume images look more like the energy is coming out of the side of his head instead of his eyes

Lol, looks like it's coming out of his neck on the MCP #19 cover.  Liefeld, man...what're you gonna do?

Storm: Been waitin' 'Ro. One more step toward a full Animated X-Men roster.

90s Dazzler: Had me at hello.

90s Iceman: Now THAT'S Iceman. I may even pick up a second if that belt is removable (or able to be snipped off). Gotta have a Spider-Friends version.

Silver Samurai: Always room for a good second tier X-villain.

Patch: With that crosshatch mask, this version of ole Logan STILL reminds me of those comics I used to read in the barber shop where someone had always drawn in them with a ballpoint pen. Easy pass.

X-Factor Cyke: Dislike sculpted on power effects. Already have the only two "must have" Cykes (Lee and Classic Yellow and Blues). Easy pass. Make a Lee version with a soft-goods jacket, then we'll talk.

Would've preferred Storm in black, but white is acceptable (even if Black is probably right around the corner).

 

Not a fan of Cyke not coming with a "depowered" headsculpt.

 

But otherwise the best "vintage" wave yet.  More hits than misses.  Just wish I could find the Wolverine Cycle for a reasonable price so I could slap a Patch head on that Wolverine.

Waiting for that group that says storm is not the right color. Lol

She really isn't the right colour, though, and pure white looks pretty awkward on just about any toy/model/statue. If they had given her costume just a touch of gray, I think the white, gray, and silver fans would've basically all been happy. I know I would've been more satisfied, but the figure still looks great overall and will be a welcome addition to my collection.

As others have said, Cyclops's energy flares are a bit of head-scratcher. It's pretty mind-blowing they thought he needed those on both heads, but c'est la vie. This is a great wave. We could well have both the classic 90s blue and gold teams complete by the end of the year! It all rests on the choice of Jean in a speculative three-pack...

You guy remember that meme where we has to decide whether a dress was blue or grey. Yeah that is basically what storm costume is. No one can decide the true color

This is the best comment. 

But now I want Storm in the blue and gold team uniform.

I've gotten caught up in enough fan debates this week, I'll skip this one.

I WILL say, she wore white on the 90s cartoon, and that's all that matters to me.

Please continue.

Oh, and Storm is now sold out on Pulse. Apparently somebody is okay with the suit.

Silver Samurai has been a big want for me for years, so I'm very glad that they're making him! The others are likely passes for me. I like the Dazzler and Iceman figures but I like ones that I already have more.

Lol. There you go. My thoughts exactly. People think it's white. Some think it's silver. Some think it's dark black. I'm of an opinion, and I think it's been highly theorized that it's all of them. At the time Silvestri was doing X-Men he actually hand picked Glynis Oliver as his colorist as she was one of the most innovative colorist of the time and he thought her style complimented his. She was one of the first to use blended tones and absence of color (blacks & whites) to represent light sources and reflections. As it was an imperfect and little used technique at the time she was constantly tweaking her process. Storms "punk" costume was perfect for experimentation and it proceeded into her 90's costume. In the end I think it was largely decided that her costume was very dark, highly polished and reflective black leather type material (Longshot's was similar). Many times in the comics whites took up more space in Storm's artwork color than actual color. This led her suit it to, more or less, be translated to white for the cartoon (most likely for simplicity's sake), which in turn got translated back to the comics. Others have said she simply just had three (or more) diffetent suits she wore at any given time. Either way, I don't so much think the figure is the wrong color, but I might make the argument that it may be too bright and she may benefit from some blue or grey highlights. Though I think Hasbro's figure is better, I think Toybiz's color palette is spot on. If you could somehow combine the two, and Hasbro could if they really wanted to (remember, there's no BAF), it would be an absolutely perfect.

I wonder of Punk Storm's head sculpt will fit on this figure.

Oddly enough, as much as I hate Cannonball's power effects, I'm not really that bothered about Cyclops'. I think it's just because all his articulation remains intact and he's not limited to just one pose. I just really love his X-Factor costume and hope we get the rest of the team in their costumes. But not before we get a new 90's or modern version of Jean first.

That's the difference, at least Cyclops is still an action figure even with effects, while Cannoball is a glorified statue. Stil a non-power headed or removable effects would have been nice

Definite yes to Storm. I'll take her in any and all costumes, lol! She's my only must-have so far but that'll probably change when reviews inevitably start going up! (I'm such an easy sell, it's ridiculous. :wink: )

These look great. its the Storm, Iceman and Silver Samurai for me. Been waiting for a Storm figure without the Mohawk. Not too crazy about all the spikes on the black outfit either. if I can get the new one, I will call the Mohawk one "Bad Storm".

You're totally right, but not about this costume. You're describing the outback costume, with the lightning bolt and/or collar, which definitely always looked black to me and was always coloured the same way as Longshot. The outfit depicted on this toy, though, is the one that debuted in Uncanny 281. Oliver coloured maybe two issues with this costume, I think, but certainly isn't responsible for it. She and Silvestri were more or less gone from X-Men by the time this costume appeared. Whilce Portacio was doing the pencils with Joe Rosas colouring. This costume was always a silvery colour that could be taken for white or gray, but interpreting it as black feels like a stretch to me. I think people who remember it black are likely confusing it with the outback era, which was a different costume.

Still not digging the crackling effects, but I still want it along with pretty much the rest of this wave

This is my favorite version of Dazzler and the only one I really need. I only got the Roller Girl version out of fear that it might be the only one we ever got. I just wish they had used a better buck than the Kate Bishop one. Something about those skinny legs is just so aesthetically offputting. I'm interested to see how well the Storm thighs woulda looked on that Dazzler figure.

All these figures look great! Especially the storm! The only one that seems a little off is Iceman. I’m still excited for him. It’s just that the colors on him don’t quite all look the same in some images. May just be the lighting. All in all a pretty solid X-Wave we can all be excited about!
