Yesterday, I looked at Wolverine from the Marvel Select line. Today, I’ll be looking at one of his teammates, Storm.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Storm was released in the last year of the line. As with everyone else in the line, she’s not part of a specific series. Instead, she was released solo. Storm is presented here in her original costume. It’s nice to see this costume, as it’s not used as often as it should be in my opinion. Storm stands about 7 inches tall, and has 17 points of articulation. She’s definitely got one of the better female sculpts I’ve looked at on the site. It’s pretty well proportioned, and does a fair job of living up to her comic book counterpart’s looks. She’s not as Cockrum influenced as Wolverine, instead going a bit more generic, but she still looks appropriate for the character, so I can’t complain. The paint is all nice and cleanly applied, with no slop or fuzziness. I really like the choice of shiny finish for the black parts, as it makes them stand out well. They’ve opted to use gold for the traditionally yellow parts, which adds an air of regality to her, which works nicely. Storm includes a small display stand and a corner of the Danger Room. It’s got several parts, and has a great geometric look to it.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Storm was picked up at the same time as the Select Wolverine, also at my local comic book store’s end of the year sale. I’d actually been wanting to pick this figure up for a while, and I was glad to find it at a slightly lower price. I don’t have many Storm figures in my collection, so I was very glad to add this one. She’s not just a good Storm figure, but a good action figure in general.
