I mean most of them work perfectly for comic figures.

Indeed. As was the case with the Bishop from the first wave. I was pleasantly surprised how well he fit in with my comic figures. Color a little bright maybe but the figure itself was superior to the first figure many times over. The only thing that would have made that figure better would have been a bald head sculpt. Which I assume they do intend on doing at some point. But why give it away for free when they can make us pay for it with another figure? 🤑

Nice, I almost forgot about this wave, seems like forever ago they showed us this and no pre-orders, it's gonna be Maddy for sure out of this wave, still on the fence with X-ecutioner and Cyclops, X-ecutioner more likely since he can stand in for a comic version, Cyclops looking real good though.

Cyclops looking so sweet, I think that's my Fav Cyclops they have ever done, I'm glad I pre-ordered it, probably a lot of others are going to want this one, I always thought the Love Triangle was the perfect Scott for me, because of the colors and I always preferred the Jacket look, but this one is top notch, also Ordered Maddy of course who is stunning and the best of the wave IMO, and X-Ecutioner because I think that might be the only chance we get on him, and he's comic enough for me.

Seeing the close ups of Scott really got me off the fence about getting him. I don't like the face. It looks a little too cartoony for me. (yes I know he's for a cartoon) I like the yellow bands not being the separate piece that slips and the pinless joints, but it's not really enough to sell me. I actually didn't order any yet. I do want Magneto, and  Nightcrawler. Fell like I have to see Maddy in hand before I pull the trigger.

I was so caught up in how much I liked this Jean Grey's body model that I'm just now realizing they sacrificed the diaphragm for what looks to be the ball joint waist. It's just as terrible as it was on Power Man. I immediately cancelled my order. I'm getting a bad feeling this is brief look into the future of ML female figures. At least they kept it for Maddy.

What's the issue with it? I'm not sure if I'm familiar with what you are describing. What other figures have this feature?

They removed the diaphragm joint on the upper chest or under her breasts if that's okay to say. And then they gave here that terrible reverse ball joint at the waist. And though it is well hidden it's still terrible to be sure as far as articulation means. Just as bad as the Power Man figure was. Compare to pictures of Maddy which does have the proper diaphragm joint with no waist joint. Probably not too big an issue for some but it is for me. To me it looks like they're playing with eliminating the ab crunch for the males and the diaphragm for the females in favor of the reverse ball joint. But it's not a progressive like G.I. Joe Classified where they're actually using the diaphragm and crunch in conjunction with the ball joint to give the figure better articulation. With ML it seems regressive where they're actually eliminating articulation in favor of a cheaper easier means.

Agreed they really messed up with Jean Grey's torso articulation. Overall sculpt is also pretty weak, I feel like 3-pack Jean for all its flaws was more interesting figure sculpt and paint wise. I wonder if I can give arms from 97 Jean to 3 pack Jean. 

Exactly. Normally when they eliminate major articulation it's for aesthetic reasons or at least they can try and play it off that way. But this did nothing for the sculpt. In fact I think it may actually make it look worse. It ended up making her look way too thin and childish. Looking at the Maddy figure they actually could have made a better case to do it on her as to try and keep the lines of the sculpt true. But I'm glad they didn't do it because it still looks amazing. Three Jean Greys in and they still haven't really gotten her right. First Maddy out of the gate and they did a pretty fine job. Scoreboard Maddy. Sorry Jeannie. Maybe in another few years.
