Day 244

Day 244 September 1st


            I have to say that I am torn on this minimate.  Many people really wanted a white costumed variant for Phoenix which I though was pretty cool but I am not 100% sold on the final product.  I can’t quite put my finger on it but there is something not quite right with it.  I am glad that they included the phoenix force base with her, helps add to the minimate for sure!


  1. Agreed! I feel like it's the yellow they used for the figurine that is kind of off putting. I wonder if Art Asylum will do the Phoenix from the "Here Comes Tomorrow" arc. That would be fantastic!

  2. I think it would have looked better with gold instead of yellow. That and the facial expression is off. In most stories where Jean wears this outfit, she ascended to a higher plane where she is more reflective and peaceful.

  3. Yea I think the facial expression is what throws it off for me as well...just doesn't seem to fit.
