Retro Toy Week: Toy Biz's Bloodstorm!


This is our third annual Retro Toy Week, and we're hitting our third of the four Mutant X figures, Bloodstorm. We've already seen the Fallen and the Goblin Queen, maybe we'll get to Havok next year...

X-Men Annual #6 was one of the first X-Men comics I ever read, and it actually ties into this figure a bit. In the regular Marvel universe, Dracula went after Storm; in the Mutant X world, he succeeded in turning her into a vampire. Taking the name Bloodstorm, she would go on to turn Kitty into a vampire, and keep Forge as her feedbag.

While Bloodstorm is a bit bare-bones as a figure, she does have her huge mohawk ponytail as a plugged piece in the back of her head; and her leather jacket. I know some collectors don't care for soft-goods pieces on figures of this scale, but I think it's not bad. It's not like she had a lot of articulation to be hindered by the jacket anyway, and it's fitted well.

Oh, we'll see...

That Havok really looks cool, so stop teasing.
