Marvel Legends - POLARIS (X-FACTOR)!

Marvel Legends - X-Men 2-Pack: X-Factor Havok and Polaris - Hasbro 2019

This may be a very unpopular opinion these days, but I was never a huge fan of the 1991 X-Factor relaunch. Most of this had to do with my love for two of the main characters, Polaris and Wolfsbane, and my extreme dislike of their costumes and personality changes in this run. However, seeing these characters showing up on the shelves in toy form still hits me with a powerful wave of nostalgia. I remember buying and reading those issues like it was yesterday. I may even have to did out the old comics and give them another chance. At this point I'm probably going to have to hunt down a couple Madrox the Multiple Man figures then budget to build the Strong Guy build-a-figure next year. And of course I think we all expect to see a proper X-Factor Wolfsbane now. Plus the new furry arms and legs can be re-purposed for Feral, Tigra, and Hepzibah (And Squirrel Girl's tail for Hepzibah!). I'm imagining a fun few years for the Legends line. Let's check out the emerald-haired beauty in detail below!



































I was desperately trying to re-create her pose from the Jim Lee X-Men card, but these two shots are the best I could get.



















The Wolfsbane head from the Dani Moonstar figure fits on this body, but Rahne's X-Factor suit had bare (furry) legs and arms. Also, the neck is mis-colored for Wolfsbane's skintone.





Here is her head on the 2017 Polaris body. It's kind of a cool look, but the color tone is off.















Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with her 2017 Version.





And with her pack-mate and long-time love interest, Havok.








Cheers!
