    Yeah, WTF?! I mean the head is incredibly... ughh... Although I seem to remember Jesse Falcon said at SDCC that they made a modern Havok prototype. But how the hell did Woolworth's get a picture of it?!

    Aside from the head, I wish ToyBiz had given us this instead of the one they made. Never was a huge fan of Havok's original costume, and this one is more than a black body with a white paint app on the chest.

    The body is sort of cool but he might have looked better with clenched teeth or something rather then yelling.

    I always thought the three white things coming off his head where odd but other then that I liked Havok’s original costume. Especially when he was drawn with all the energy rings coming off him when he used his power the way Mark Silvestri would do.

    Well, the fact that his name is spelled incorrectly on the site is odd too...Wait, Woolworth's still exists?!?! I always assumed it was an American company that couldn't compete with Wal-Mart and the like and died a slow death...I guess we'll just have to wait until someone in the U.K. acquires one of these and lets us know what it looks like in person. You never know.....

    I don't think anyone cares about Havok in the U.K.

    Woolworths is the UK's biggest toy retailer by quite some margin.

    When they dropped TF's last year it almost ended the line entirely over here.

    It would not surprise me at all if this is a listing mistake based on a test shot picture that isn't ever going to be sold.

    It's not from X-Men #616 - there IS no X-Men #616!!! :lol :

    I think many, many wires were crossed here, and they were thinking of Earth-616 (one of the in-continuity names for the Marvel Universe). The look lasted eight issues (X-Men #157-164) before they realised whoever designed the headpiece was drunk at the time and replaced it with this simpler model.

    Well, other than the face sculpt I think this custome looks way better than the regular US release.

    Its kinda cool, but I like my Havok custom better. Its based off his current costume in Uncanny. Looks a lot cooler I think. I think that would have been a cool variant for Havok, I mean his costume is primarily all black again, would have just needed a new head and some minor paint work. I hope at some point we see Hasbro do Havok in his X-Factor costume.
