Figure of the Day 59 – Storm

Storm

Series: X-Men; Giant Size X-Men Box Set
Availability: 1995
Comments: Giant Size X-Men #1 was a 1975 comic where Professor X had to throw together an All New! team of X-Men to save the original X-Men from a mutant island. In 1995 Toy Biz released a box set of figures to commemorate the 20th anniversary of this issue’s release. This Storm figure was included in this box set. Also included in this set are Nightcrawler, Banshee, Thunderbird, Colossus and Banshee.  The set as a whole is awesome, and provides an example of how good ToyBiz’s releases could be.

I cannot say enough good things about Storm.  This is one of my all-time favorite figures.  Her sculpt is fantastic.  The cape is fantastic.  The stability of the figure is fantastic…even in her heels.  The only small nit I have is that the “bracelets” where the cape connect to the wrists are awfully large, but really…in this scale that’s easily overlooked.  All in all, an A+ figure.
