There were plenty of incredible reveals to come out of the Marvel Legends panel at Hasbro Pulse Con 2022. One of which was the massive assortment of new retro card backed X-Men figures that Hasbro pulled right off the comics. My favorite announcement was the new Jean Grey figure that brings the fury of the Dark Phoenix back once again. Coming right out of the Phoenix Saga, this cosmic entity can not be stopped and will make a deadly new addition to any X-Men collection. Jean's iconic red and yellow suit makes a comeback, and the Legends team gave her a fierce head sculpt, swappable hands, and fire phoenix accessory. While I am not a big fan of the "dynamic" lair sculpts Hasbro has been doing with their female figure, this own works perfectly and will make a deadly enemy for a collection. The artwork of the card back is also beautifully done, and it only helps sell this figure even more. The Uncanny X-Men Marvel Legends Retro Collection Dark Phoenix figure is priced at $24.99, set for an April 2023 release, and pre-orders are live here.
