Marvel Legends - X-23 (X-Force)!

Marvel Legends - Deadpool Wave (Sasquatch BaF) - X-23 - Hasbro 2018

I'll admit I've never been a big fan of the Uncanny X-Force comic. I always thought of X-Force as a colorful and fun team of second-string mutants. The roster changed a lot throughout the years and for the most part I enjoyed all the iterations. But when Uncanny X-Force rolled out with gritty plotlines, dark costumes, and major characters like Wolverine, Angel, Deadpool, and Psylocke, it just seemed off. I'm obviously a minority in this opinion because everyone I know loves it and it's been around for 10 years now. But one thing I definitely loved was that it propelled X-23 into the mainstream. Laura Kinney was a young runaway in the pages of NYX who turned out to be a clone of Logan. I thought she was cool, but I never expected her to become as popular as she has. I especially loved her run as the All-New Wolverine (and I really hope we get a Legends figure of her!) But in the meantime we get this awesome X-Force version which looks great (whether I liked the comics or not). Let's check her out below!

I actually like that she doesn't have her signature toe-blades. (I honestly always thought they were very weird... and would be very awkward in toy form).

I'm normally not a fan of gritted teeth on my action figures, but on X-23 it makes sense.

Laura comes with the torso piece for the Sasquatch build-a-figure.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her Marvel Universe and Super Hero Squad figures.

And here she is with her wave-mate, Domino.
