Here's a look at him from the front and back. At first I was "meh" on this figure because it's kind of plain without any shadows or interesting paint apps, but the sculpt itself is so perfect, I'm glad I finally got him.
You can really appreciate how much an upgrade this figure is until you compare him to an earlier version. I've been displaying the Astonishing X-Men version of Cyclops with my X-Men for a few years. I love that costume design, but the sculpt never had wowed me. Look at them side-by-side.
As you can see, the new Cyclops is a lot taller, which fits more with the character's portrayal in the comics. plus, in comparison, the old Cyclops has weirdly large feet! Never noticed that before.
I can't have a Cyclops post without including his long-time love, Jean Grey. I'm still displaying the old Toybiz Phoenix figure. There have been several very nice toys of her that have come out in the past couple of years, but I honestly still love this one. The body sculpt is kind of simple, compared to modern female figures, but I really like her head sculpt.
In conclusion, this figure is a really nice upgrade to my previous Cyclops and I'm happy to have him in my collection. Some paint application shadows would have been nice, but it's still a great figure.
