I think it comes down to not needing or wanting looks that only lasted an issue, or arc, or cover, or pin-up. Much rather get figures in costumes that lasted a bit or are more iconic. I don't personally want them, but I'm also not big on getting characters out of costume in general.

But what do I know, I'm American AND from the south, so it's like a double whammy. I'm lucky to put on shoes on a daily basis.
Shoes are overrated. Get you a nice pair of foot-claws like X-23. Stylish and practical!

But yeah, with Wolverine I don't think there's much opportunity cost in getting dumb variants, although I get why people would be generally opposed to short-term looks or even figures recalling a specific art style. I'm a fan of dumb novelty figures (NES Jason 4 Life) but I'm going to assume that this is actually something sane like an Outback Wolverine.

This version will always be "Wolverine III" to me.

YES, please. I would love Hasbro to go down this road and we could have a full display of:

Obviously the chances of this happening are slim, but I can dream, right?

These would look great. But more than half the characters on these covers never wore this look in the books, and there are soooooo many figures I'd love to see before we start getting "cover only" figs. (Although in fairness, HoXPoX Moira has already broken that seal :P )

I wouldn't mind building the team from the cover of #275. It was literally the first comic book I owned.

Shoes are only for church and going to a local dance.

I have the smaller figures that Toy Biz did in the 90s of those. I think they're all still in pretty good condition for the most part. And I really did like them, so if they do them again I'd be down.

They should definitely do a female version of those Jim Lee costumes so we can actually finally get a Jim Lee psylocke head sculpt... Because... Ya know... That's what we've wanted all along.

I wouldn't say slim, it almost seems inevitable

Complete with nipples!

Headsculpts looks nice.

Assuming this is indeed an X-Men Retro wave, which so far seems to be filled with repaints. No complaints...totally fine with me, as we may not have gotten some of these characters or variations in a "normal" wave.
