90's Cyclops & 90's Jean Grey


Our revisitation to the 90's and the 90's X-men featured in the X-Men cartoon comes to a potentially brief close with these two figures. Since my teenage years were in the 90's, these are pretty much how I remember these characters. Cyclops with his head hood never seems quite right to me.

And Jean Grey... Oh who cares. In the 90's Jean Grey pretty much served as generic psychic and a love interest for Cyclops. (And sometimes Wolverine.) There was a reson she was on the Gold Team. No one cared what happened to the Gold Team. The Blue Team was where it was at. (Seriously, they had Wolverine, Gambit, Cyclops, and Rogue. If you don't have Cyclops and Wolverine on your X-men then you're on the B-Squad.) Yes, this is the costume she was wearing back then. Yes, it was the one that was on the cartoon. Yes, it is the one most people remember and is probably the most iconic of her costumes... after the Dark Phoenix costume.... and maybe the silver age green and yellow one.

I've also placed Cyclops' alternate head and hair piece on a Blue suit body, just to give you an idea what's going on under his visor. It's pretty cool. All the other Cyclops minimates I have feature the glowing eyes underneath. This is the first one I've gotten with the civilian sunglasses. It's a useful feature to have, if you want a civilian Cyclops minimate. And I do.
