Just noticed this today. Missed it among all the news this weekend.




Also, Storm and Mystique.



I think they need to add pleats to Mystique's skirt so it doesn't look so... diapery?

New Alpha Flight box set going to be an Amazon Exclusive. Those separate carded figures are the ‘99 Toy Biz ones for comparison, I think.

WHAT is the obsession with bare legs on Puck? I got rid of that almost immediately.

I hate hate hate what Hasbro did to the line.

The '99* Snowbird can never be topped, IMO.

*20 years ago?!?!?!?!?

Shoving bamboo under my fingernails, this set not only gives us Heather as Guardian*, but totally messes up the flag on the costume.

* A reminder that Vindicator was Chris’ name for the character, taken from a British (not Canadian) jet fighter.

They could have gotten away with a “civilian Heather” in a box set... missed opportunity :(

When I first heard about this, I was very excited, but when I saw the set I was VERY disappointed:

1) Have NEVER liked Heather as a costumed hero
2) No Sasquatch figure (a non-starter for any purported ALPHA FLIGHT set)
3) No Marrina
