    Out of all the Legion, it’s disappointing they only include one female out of 12.

    Matter-Eater Lad and Proty but not Shadow Lass, Phantom Girl, Shrinking Violet, etc.?

    No Shadow Lass/Cosmic Boy combo, no Dream Girl/Brainiac 5, no Shrinking Violet? I’m out…

      Be honest. We were never in. The odds of getting this set for less than 300 dollars are pretty much infinitesimal. And when were Shadow Lass and Cosmic Boy a “combo?”

    The one I’m surprised by is Matter-Eater Lad. They should have swapped him out for Dawnstar.

      Dawnstar’s wings would probably have been really difficult to reproduce. And Matter-Eater Lad has his fans… I want these figures partly BECAUSE he’s included.

    When are we going to see some full-fledged Legion statues, like every other superhero has had? Some nice full statues.
