Just my luck that Stryfe finally comes back and it's in an expensive 5 pack with four figures I have no use for.

So much for making him "affordable" to those of us that missed him.

I feel like they're doing more and more of these milti-packs and box-sets lately. And I'm sure it's a calculated risk from their point of view, they probably expect to make more money from it and probably will. But for me personally, it's making me buy less. Like I would have bought the upcoming Venom if he wasn't in a 3-pack.

No, Vertigo is cool AF

I just hope they aim either classic or animated

Hopefully her hair is white and they highlight it with the green. The modern look is just so boring.

Heh, isn't the modern just the classic in slightly darker colors?

Both are better than that animated "costume".

Animated look is a tacky mess. I don't need a TAS specific Vertigo so comic all the way for me.

Looks like a white dress was washed with a bag of jelly beans then Jubilee's closet was raided for her boots and gloves. I hate it more every time I scroll up and look at it, but for some reason I can't stop scrolling up and looking at it. Like a car wreck where a convertible smashed into a Hostess Snoball truck.

What's funnier is that the rest of the Nasty Boys were like, 100% on model with the comics but someone decided cartoon Vertigo needed to wear the worst outfit they could think up.

She's clearly just getting off work as a watermelon flavored bubble gum sales model. Image

Was she a nasty boy in the cartoon? In the comics she was a marauder. This set is awesome because it completes the Reavers, begins the Marauders and the MLF. And finally frets me a shot at Stryfe!

It's past time for an X-cutioner figure.

I know he's a total Z lister, but I *love* X-Cutioner. I loved his stupidly busy design when he showed up and caved in Colossus's face, and I loved the old 5" figure. He's high on my "it'll never happen but I'd be so pumped if it did" list.

I would be so down for X-Cutioner. His big robe costume over chain mail armor barely makes any sense but I loved the figure as a kid.

Also mega hyped for Vertigo. Comic look all the way! The animated version is…not it.

I can't remember, I'm probably wrong. It's been years since I saw the cartoon.

She was sort of in-between. She was with Sinister at the end of Season 2, but I think she was part of Magnetos "mutates" that he left behind in the Savage Land. Probably not an official member of the Nasty Boys as she wasn't part of the raiding party when the group resurfaced to wreck Scott and Jean's wedding.
