    I think @nathan_s82 still has three Dani's if you need them. Check with him first though.

    Honestly I'm more excited by the Stepford sisters mainly because I have no idea who they are. If so many of you are skipping them, hopefully it'll mean they'll be much easier to get, haha!

    Hard pass for me too. If they were a little more anime or a little less church, I might've put different heads on the bodies.

    I'm also willing to get both versions. The White/Yellow version is the one that most of us are familiar with, however the Black/Gold has more contrast. So it's EB Games for those in Canada that want the Black Suited Storm.

    I just want A Storm...not quite sure which one now, though. I only saw the white retro Storm in-store once and didn’t pick her up...haven’t seen her since. This new one probably won’t be any easier...lol...

    Buy all three recent ones and partswap until you get something like the Jubilee wave Storm!

    The new one should be easy to get since it's an online channel exclusive?

    Think they might box her up and charge $24.99 msrp like 80th Deadpool though.

    Correct Black suit vintage Storm is a fan channel exclusive, so for any body in the U.S (I don't know how they're distributed in other markets) should have a fairly easy chance of picking one up online.

    If you wanted White Storm, she was popping up on Amazon for about $17 randomly every so often. Last time was two days ago.

    Surprisingly not a fan of the new Storm despite loving the original toy biz version.

    And 3 SCs, ugh guess this is the Hasbro new moneymaker strategy.

    I’ll keep stalking Amazon and the like! I think I’d prefer the white one since I’m trying to assemble a 90’s toon cast.

    Update from Marvel Toy News regarding release:

    The shared Exclusive Marvel Legends Black Costume Storm Retro Series figure goes up for order on Monday, and is scheduled to ship out in Spring 2020. It should be available via BBTS, EE, Hasbro Pulse, and the other usual suspects. The Walgreens Stepford Cuckoos are also set for Spring 2020, but are unlikely to go up for sale until they are physically in the warehouses next year. I imagine they’re going to sell spectacularly, given the three heads for customizing purposes (plus the Cerebro helmet and extra fists).

    I would have been more excited for Storm if:
    1. She had been in the classic costume, including the headdress/cowl.
    or
    2. She had a giant lightning bolt deco'ed on her torso.

    Good to know that I've got a few months or mull over purchasing her not because my initial thought was, "Meh."

    For future Storms Hasbro should get all that cape material and burn it in a fire, that material is garbage and creases very easily. Would've taken cloth instead even if it looked fuzzy or too big. One reason I'm not too annoyed I've only seen Vintage Storm once.

    Ah man if the torso was molded in translucent neon yellow but painted black save for a lightning bolt like on the 1st 5" Toy Biz Storm, I would've definitely wanted this figure.

    Yeah, Storm's great an all, but I don't think I need the black variant of the same outfit of a figure I already have... It's not like I'm going to replace the 90s white suit one in my X-Men gold team display.

    If it had the lightning bolt on the chest like the prehistoric toy biz one, I'd probably get it.

    It's like a stiff nylon? Like paper cloth. If you accidentally fold it, it will crease.o_O

    I hear ya. I don’t Go out only to hunt for that reason. If I’m at Target or Walmart I check the section and I usually find the stuff I want eventually or it comes up cheap online. If there is a GameStop or something nearby I sometimes pop in but with their prices I don’t usually buy anything there.

    I have to say that black suited Storm looks awkard to me. It's too much black when the suit was silver with black shading.

    I'm not the only person who thinks of this when they think of "Black Suit Storm," right?

    Though I still patiently await this black costume:

    Cool, I will definately be picking up a carded black Storm. The St. Thomas Aquinas Preparatory School for girls trio is a hard pass.
