Alpha Flight - VINDICATOR!

Marvel Legends - Alpha Flight Boxset (Amazon Exc) - Vindicator - Hasbro 2019

This new Amazon-exclusive Marvel Legends Alpha Flight 6-Pack is a dream come true for me. I have wanted a full inclusion of this team into the Legends line for a long long time. There have been a handful of false starts in both the Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe lines with an occasional Guardian, Sasquatch, Puck or Northstar released, but the entire team seemed like a pipe dream. The 90's ToyBiz lineup was surprisingly good (and thorough), but the scale and sculpt could never hold up to modern scrutiny. In the past two years we have seen an updated Sasquatch and Guardian which gave me hopes that we would see some more members. But I never would have predicted this. I was especially scared that we wouldn't see a Heather Hudson as Vindicator since she wasn't an original hero on the team (she took over the role later on after her husband died). She ended up leading the team and is honestly the most iconic character on the whole roster for me. Let's check out Heather McNeil Hudson as Vindicator below!

This figure is really very simple, but it's perfect in that simplicity. It's a new head on a classic body, but we don't need anything else. The only potential wish I have is for an alternate head with a blue visor. But honestly I'm totally happy as is.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Heather with her husband James Husdon, aka Guardian (recently released in the 2019 Wendigo Wave).

And here is the whole Alpha Flight Team so far (the six figures from this box set plus Sasquatch and Guardian from different recent waves). From Left to Right: Guardian, Vindicator, Sasquatch, Puck, Snowbird, Northstar, Shaman, and Aurora.
