Hasbro Pulse has announced the next character to join the X-MEN Animated Series VHS line. It’s none other than the redheaded hottie Jean Grey. Oh, the tease. Always leading Logan on, only to settle for the boring Scott Summers. Why do you do such things, Jean?
Anyway, Jean is joining Storm, Jubilee, and Wolverine in a series of figures based on the 1990s Fox animated X-MEN series. Each figure comes in a VHS-styled box with artwork specific to the character.
The action figures in this series are priced, so far, at $27.99. Hasbro is really getting up there with NECA when it comes to pillaging our wallets for basic figures. Hopefully, future installments will come with more accessories to make these things a little more attractive financially.
Jean Grey is expected to ship around the 1st of October 2022. Click here to pre-order your coppertop in the skin-tight costume.
Possessing near-limitless psychic potential, Jean Grey is Charles Xavier’s first student, and could someday become the greatest psychic on earth, and beyond.
Jean will come with the following accessories:
- Head with ponytail
- Head with luscious flowing red hair
- Alternate hands
- Jealous Wolverine is not included.
Honestly, I could have done without the ponytail head. Why not throw in some psychic power effects parts instead? As we mentioned earlier, the price of these things is close to what NECA wants for their figures, and they come with more accessories. The Marvel Legends line is pricing itself out of my interest.
While I’d like to believe this is mainly due to inflation and supply chain issues, I feel this is more about Disney trying to drain every penny out of the collectors’ market.
