Marvel Legends - PSYLOCKE!

Uncanny X-Men #275 3-Pack (Banshee, Gambit, Psylocke) - Hasbro 2023

With all the amazing classic Marvel Legends coming out in 2023 (Outback Rogue, Mojoverse Dazzler, Mockingbird, Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel, updated Tigra, Moonstone, Vertigo, etc), I have been reassessing my wish list. And one character I keep coming back to is Psylocke, specifically in her various 1980's costumes. She was a blur of multi-tonal purples and pinks and I loved it. I would love to see both the lavender-haired, puffy-sleeved outfit, as well as the hooded and masked version. But when all these variations were released in Mini-Mates form over the years, it made me desire a complete representation of Psylocke's many looks. And to me, a key example is those few months around 1991's Uncanny X-Men #275 when she donned this modern homage to the original X-Men uniform. The X-Men characters seem to thrive on individuality, both in personality and appearance, but it was cool for a brief moment to see them unified in matching costumes. Let's check out X-Men #275 Psylocke below!

Psylocke comes with two sets of hands, her psychic dagger that fits over her fist, her sword, 
and a power effect that swirls around her sword.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the three X-Men #275 ladies together: StormPsylocke, and Jubilee.

And here are the three most recent Psylocke Legends figures:
  Apocalypse Wave (2018), X-Men #275 (2023), and X-Force (2020).

Here is Psylocke with her box-mates Banshee and Gambit.
