Sideshow Collectibles has been teasing their latest Jean Grey Premium Format Figure for a while. Now we get to see it in all it’s glory, and it looks marvelous (said in my best Billy Crystal voice).
I stopped reading comics in the mid 90’s – shortly after the horrible Rob Liefeld knock-off explosion happened – so I don’t have the fondest memories of that comic book era, but I did always like this version of Jean Grey…mostly because I watched the X-Men cartoon a lot after school.
It was a time of big shoulder pads, lots of pouches, and random thigh padding, but this costume represents the best that era had to offer. I don’t want to see those designs return by any means, but if I had an extra $359.99 sitting around I’d gladly display this version of Jean Grey on my shelf.
