Stuck Wyngarde's head on a Mobius body and gave him Gambit's trench coat and a spare smoke from MAFEX Batou. The brown on Gambit's coat doesn't quite match, but it's pretty close. Where I have them displayed, you definitely can't tell unless you pick him up and look closely. Looks good enough for me for now, and Mobius' left hand/arm looks good popping the collar.

Think I have a spare Gambit lurking around, so I might try the coat look as well. I'm not too concerned about it looking exactly like the comics, and a trench is something he might wear these days. I dig it.

The new head looks fantastic on the 1st appearance Wolverine body.

I hope we see this new head released a few times in the future (without the battle damage).

I'll be interested to see if they do; when I was looking at mine, I was pretty sure that some of the battle damage is sculpted. Some of the nicks and cuts seemed sculpted, to me, but also the fat/bruised lips.

It's definitely the best unmasked Wolverine head sculpt they've done, though; I'm definitely hoping we an undamaged version with the slightly darker skin-tone that most of the previous releases have.

Had to take a photo so I could zoom in, which actually didn't tell me as much as feeling around, but yes, SOME of the nicks and cuts are sculpted. BUT I think if you removed the paint from those spots, it could easily pass as a standard Logan portrait. Healed with scars. It's definitely the very best portrait they've made, and it would be shocking if they didn't reuse it in the future. I think this would be my go-to sculpt for just about any era of Wolverine.

Did he repaint it, or is it just the lighting making it look so different than the previous pics I've seen?

I think it's just the lighting.

Where did you get the bans that are on the upper arms? And what's her height after swapping the legs?

Looks like the bands on the upper arms are already on the Callisto figure. The armbands around the wrists are from the Ripley figure, and it looks like the spikes on Callisto's left leg are Ripley's neckband.
I'm curious if the leg swap was made at the hip, or at the upper thigh cut. Boil and pop, or was there more to it?

Got this set today and loving it. Cyber’s paint job really pops, which is nice. Also didn’t expect to care for a redeco of Omega Red but he looks better than the last release imo so onto the shelf he goes.

I remember playing the Adamatium Rage game for Sega back in the 90s so this Cyber is checking some nostalgia boxes.
