Apocalypse Goes Retro With A New Toy Biz-Inspired Action Figure

Hasbro

Hasbro has announced another retro-styled Marvel Legends figure. This time we’re returning to the world of X-MEN with a throwback version of the evil Apocalypse. Packaged on a card with artwork reminiscent of the early days when Toy Biz ruled the Marvel license, Apocalypse comes with multiple heads, hands, and other accessories.
This version is a bit of an amalgamation of the original two Apocalypse figures from Toy Biz’s ’90s X-MEN line, but with the color scheme of the character’s appearance in the Fox Cartoon from the same time period. The ancient mutant is $38.99 and is set to conquer collectors’ toy shelves on January 1st, 2023.

The first Apocolypse figure was a weak entry in Toy Biz’s initial line. It was early; I get it. They were still trying to figure things out after the flopped DC toys and the weird bulky Marvel action figures. Toy Biz got there eventually, and the proceeding waves got better and better. The second version of Apocalypse was shorter but stockier and had a great face sculpt. His hoses were also now, thankfully, detachable. The first figure’s broke so easily.

Too bad that the character was somewhat squandered in his own movie.

What do you think of this purple Apocalypse?
