Marvel Legends: X-Men: The Animated Series Mystique revealed

The figure will be available for preorder later this summer.

On Friday, Hasbro revealed the next figure celebrating X-Men: The Animated Series. This time it will be Raven Darkholme, aka Mystique, revealing the cel-shaded treatment.

As with the previous releases in this line, Mystique will come packaged in a retro VHS-style box. Even an unabashed opener like me can appreciate that level of nostalgic detail.

The figure will include alternate hands (a necessity to hold firearms), blue (?) weapons, and a baby Nightcrawler.

If you’re not up on your X-Men lore, then that last accessory may be a bit confusing. In the comics, Nightcrawler was the result of an affair between Mystique and Azazel, a very old and demonic-looking mutant. In the 1990s animated series, Mystique is also Nightcrawler’s mother, although his father is never revealed (at least I’m fairly certain he’s not).

As for the figure, I’m still not a fan of the cel-shading paint. That said, the sculpt and facial portrait look very good — although it should be mandatory that figures of shapeshifters come with at least one alternate head.

Preorders for Mystique are expected to open sometime later this summer.
