Because He’s EVIL

Really, it explains everything about this newest addition to the Marvel Select line. Why does he look like he’s about to destroy everyone? Why is he standing over the wreckage of the X-Mansion? Why does he have such an angry look? Why is his back turned when clearly someone is trapped in the rubble? The answer to all of these questions is “Because he’s EVIL” Well, truth be told, the whole arm-of-Colossus thing on the base is because yours truly is a little wicked in the head and felt like having some sick fun with the fans (I guess this means I’ll have to do a Colossus Select figure as a future make-good, huh?). The Master of Magnetism is sculpted by Gabriel Marquez and painted by Ed Wires.

This is a pretty nice looking Magneto figure and I’m tempted to get him just for the base, but that is almost always the case with Marvel Select. I wonder if the helmet will be removable? I’m betting that was a hint about one of the next figures on the drawing board too. So what do you think? Will you be buying this one?
