I think the new one has the same hands as that one. Parts of the arms might be the same, too, but I can't tell for sure. I can't find a really good picture of the new one's face to compare, but I think even the head sculpt is different (earrings, smaller mohawk).

The previous one from the Jubilee wave is a newer costume. I know it was featured most prominently in Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel's adjectiveless X-Men run a few years ago. It features a full bodysuit and cape. While I don't think it's her best costume design, and the figure itself is pretty lazy, it at least looks like a superhero suit.

The new one is from the early-mid 1980's. It's basically just Storm with a mohawk in a white tank top and black leather vest and pants. I've never liked it at all, and thought it made no sense for the character. When I was younger I read through Chris Claremont's entire run on Uncanny X-Men, and even in context, it felt like one of those choices where Claremont was basically throwing shit at the wall and seeing what stuck.

But, that look definitely has its supporters, and some of them seem to have made it into the creative fields, as they used a variation of that look for the X-Men: Apocalypse movie, and now we're getting a Marvel Legend of it. Some people at Marvel clearly must like it, because they keep trying to give Storm a mohawk, but since others don't seem to love it as much, her hair switches back and forth at an alarming rate.

And, again, this is not me trying to defend the punk look. I think it's a lousy turn for the character that should be left 25-30 years in the past and never spoken of again. But it's not the same figure as the one from the Jubilee wave.

I didn't know where to put this so I guess this is good enough. The Iron Man vs Mega Man 3 3/4 two pack is out at Target now. Here's the DCPI: 087-06-8391.

I know this isn't DC, but I picked up my first Multiverse figure... Tactial Armor Batman.

I occasionally buy a Batman figure, especially when I really love the suit.

A little off-topic, but how ARE the Dragonball Figures, relative to other figures in its price range? A little below Marvel Legends standards or on par? I'm considering getting Goku and Beerus at some point, to save some money.

Possible just under the quality with Marvel.... way higher than the Legacy Ranger figures.

Does the Tom Holland head from the 2-pack fit on the home-made suit body fine? I keep forgetting to look into that. That's gonna be my deciding factor on the 2-pack

Well it does with a lot of pressure but it DOES make the head hole loose for a little while when you wanna put it back on the tech suit body. Luckily it isn't permanent.

Oh damn, Spider Noir! Crap. I still have to find a Gwenpool, but really don't have room for Legends. And I have a friend who loves Taskmaster, gonna have to let him know.

So came across these today... at TRU... picked up Wolverine as I missed him originally.

Now's your chance to get Pizza Spider-man.

I picked up Iron Man and Wolverine at my local Walgreens. Now just need Black Widow. Maybe Punisher, but I have the Walgreens exclusive. Though I do like the deco of this new Punisher better.

It's frustrating to me, because, while I'd like that Wolverine, a large part of why I wanted it in the first release was because of the Juggernaut piece. I've a feeling my Juggernaut BAF will forever remain headless.

A neutral faced Wolverine figure is something I've been wanting. I never was interested in "Snarling faced Wolverine" or "Insane locomotive faced Hulk"

A neutral face is fine with me
