Hm. I want Jubilee to be shorter also. I think I'm gonna have to get one just for cannibalization.
I like it a lot. Just a heads up thought. The Caliban boots are loose on the animated calves. I'm sure someone with know-how has a fix for it, but even w/o it, she stands and poses just fine.
Pull them apart and dab some super glue in there, but don't let it fuse. I personally, put some glue in the hole, then put the leg back in, and keep turning until I'm confident the glue is dry and won't fuse the pieces together. It basically acts like a thin layer added on top of the plastic. If you're not comfortable with spinning the boot with the glue inside it, you can dab the glue on the peg that goes inside, and use a push pin or something metal to spread it around the peg evenly, then let it dry, and then put the leg back together. But it may be a little harder to get back together that way, since the peg will be a bit thicker. But it is safer. Also, this only works if it's just a little wobbly. If it's so loose it looks like it's going to fall off, probably won't work. Then you'd have to try hot glue, or sculpt putty maybe. I've only used hot glue in heads where the ball is smaller then the hole by alot, and I don't sculpt anything, so that is beyond me.

You can use hot glue or acrylic-based floor polish to achieve the same result without the potential complication of fusing the parts together.

Sometimes I use cut pieces of those clear stretchy bands that hold figures into trays. Doesn't interfere permanently with any parts, and I can put in as little or as much as necessary.

They should have included these effects with Jubilee. Far from perfect, but look more like fireworks than the Scarlet Witch effects they gave her.

This will probably be the first, and only, figure I pick from this line.

You mean they didn't decide to reveal Mor....female figures today?

Nice - we aren't waiting until the final release for Morph. Excited to see which body they go with.

Looking forward to the full reveal. A good Morph can make up for a lot of the subpar stuff we've been shown. I'm also assuming this means he'll come with his jacket on and black hair, which is fine with me as I prefer Morph with the coat. Maybe they'll go all out and make it removably, but I'm definitely not expecting that.

Ugh, wish they would bring back the X-men retro cards and release him in that format. The prices on these vhs figures give me pause. Especially since I’m paying a premium for shading that I don’t want.

I'll be passing on the hope that he's re-released without the shading. If not, he's no big loss for me.

So excited for this! My gateway to the X-Men and Marvel in general was the premiere episode of the animated series. It blew my seven-year-old mind that a character was killed. (It double blew my mind when they brought him back as a bad guy.) I've always had a special place in my heart for Sentinels and Morph.

Really hope an evil Morph head is included at minimum.

Also, looks like it'll be the jacket version, so won't be able to be used for the general male X-uniform outfit circa Uncanny X-Men #275.
