Graham found Hasbro's new Marvel Legends Cyclops yesterday, and I was really jealous. It's a great, great figure. I almost bought one myself, but I don't think I care enough about Cyclops to justify it. But I was tempted, and I still am. The proportions and articulation were excellent -- you can actually get his head to look around in all sorts of directions -- and I loved the colors. The bright yellow stripes look great against his dark blue. And, thank the Cheese, he's not smeared with black wash all over, making him look like he's a toddler in the mud. Very clean-looking.

As the TNI strip notes, his packaging profile is overwhelmingly emo. Click the link in the first paragraph to read it. You can just hear the guitars and crying going on in the background. It immediately made me think of this old X-Men 3 strip, so I decided to harken back to it in today's.

TNI is a more family-oriented site than mine is, so I gave them the option of a censored version. If you want to see the Disembodied Pooping Butt in all its glory, here it is sans the black box.

Hey kids, a quick note, Wally and Osborne is updating again. Tyler Martin made me do this.
