Agreed. I'm thinking about getting a duplicate Walgreens Sue just to use the head on this one.
…and then you have the body for a FF Crystal when a ML Crystal.(hopefully in her classic blue and yellow or some version thereof) gets released.

I’m looking at that Come See Toys review, and that comparison shot with Walgreens Sue and Super Skrull Sue is Exhibit A in my contention that we’re going in the wrong direction. I get the extra $3. Costs are going up everywhere. But if you want the $20 to $22 I was paying, much less $23 to $25, I need to see a lot more of that circa 2019 Marvel Legends goodness and a lot less of these circa 2020-2021 Marvel Legends.

Sorry Hasbro, but at least you’re still the ones that set the bar so high in the first place.

I actually like the hair, and see what's it's going for.

The face, however...

Sue's looking like one of those snarling overly-botoxed blonde Fox News anchors.

That 3 pack Scarlet Witch head from a few years ago was great by comic figure standards, wish they'd maintain that level.

I dig High Evolutionary's height. I think what feels more off is that Ben's figure is like 6'8" when he's WAY shorter.

I can't defend the face, but at least she can stand with her legs somewhat together.

I wish I had any kind of customization skill. I'd like to use the Walgreen's Sue face, but with the Retro Sue's hair.

I do wonder what that Sue face would look like if you acetoned off the eyes and hand painted on new ones (not for me, with my ham-handed painted skills).

Looking at the three of them, the two older Sues have much more definition of the eye area - the black line at the top carries on round the corners and onto the bottom edge, which makes the eye look a bit bigger and more expressive. By contrast, the newest Sue looks underpainted. Plus of course you could the wonky eye she seems to have going on.

Edit - a hair swap would look interesting too - not for me as I’m happy with the blue and black, but I’d be curious to see it done.

Whenever I get Sue, I'll try to repaint the face.
If it still doesn't look right, I've got a spare Dagger head I can repaint.

I really dislike both Sue's face & hair (other than the color).

I was just looking at my carded retro 3.75 version of Sue & I do like the shorter hair with this costume. I have an extra HFC Emma, so I may try that hair on a different headsculpt.

The close ups in Come See Toys’ review don’t make it look so awful, just painted badly. The sculpt is there. I’m sure the experts could work wonders. As is, it’s not pleasant. I’ll def be swapping heads with other Sue options.

The Sue head isn't great - I don't hate it as much as some of you, but I still think I'll swap the Walgreens head in,
