Oh man I cannot wait to add this figure to my 90's X-men display. It's a thing of beauty! My only complaint is I wish it was on the same body mold as the JUBILEE wave Storm...but it's AWESOME!

Still prefer the old X-Men Classics 6" one that came out right before they got rebranded to Marvel Legends.

She looks pretty awesome. I got to say with the X ladies next to each other you can really see how weirdly proportioned they all are. I still love them but its kind of weird. Big heads, big hands, kind of stumpy.. but again they are the best we ve ever got and Im ok with it.

At first I was kind of thrown off because of the images Hasbro had released, but seen it now in the review and pictures, man, I need her, maybe two so I can repaint her black. And yes, would've preferred they'd used the Jubilee wave body, but all in all, she looks awesome.

I got to admit this is one fine looking figure, not sure if i want to get it because i don't think i can handle clothed figures or figures that have some kind of cloth, but maybe i can make this my own exception, maybe

Listen this is a beautiful figure, and definitely need to get her but is it just me or is seeing an all white figure with absolutely no shading incredibly jarring. The hair sculpt with shading is fantastic but it feels like the head and body came from two different places. One of the only figures where im not sure if the new version is better than the first.

No, you're not alone, the lack of shading is a problem, it looks cheap.  The good news is you know that they're going to give a repaint in the comic accurate silver so I'm going to hold off for that one.

Nice. The face even almost looks like the new Xmen actress that's been playing Storm on the last couple movies. I have been waiting for this version for a while now. I got the Mohawk one but just don't care for the haircut.

I think the all-white looks really weird too. I feel like everyone would've been happy if they had just painted it a very, very light gray. It would've looked white to those who wanted white and gray to those who wanted gray or silver. It's a beautiful sculpt, just a dubious colouring choice.

I like the white better than black costume though I think the figure would have looked better in all silver (the all white looks a little too... white, and withouth the shadows and highlights from the comics its a little bland) but thats just the color, the figure looks really nice overall, though I really "love/hate" these vintage cardbacks I want the figures for my displays but its always so emotionally hard opening these packages once they are in my hands (and I dont really collect mint in box figures)

I think she would've looked better in all black. I might get two and paint one. The way the hair sits on her head makes me think it will be just an easy mod to put her head dress and different molded hair on this head for a classic Storm (fingers crossed)

How would you handle the wings, though? I feel like painting those could go sideways.

Probably dipping them in ink several times. Or, most likely, cutting black fabric in that shape, and swapping it with the figure.

It took way too long to finally get figure I’m so excited to have this one, but I’m not a fan of her cape

The cape doesn't bother me all that much. I guess we'll see how it holds up over the years. Super excited to get her, nonetheless.

She'll be going right on the old toybiz stormnado stand I've kept all this freakin time.

This figure looks awesome. I'll be interested to see how it looks with the old xmen classics rubber cape.

    • 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.
