Hasbro finally gives us a fan favorite! Blink!

Blink first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #317 as a mutant teleporter. She was only around for 4 issues before she perished. Cut to the Age of Apocolypse event, we are reintroduced to a new version of Blink. She was one of the breakout characters from this story arc and gained much fandom from it. Blink went out to appear in the Exiles comic series. She appeared in the film X-Men: Days of Future Past and was one main character of the Gifted TV series.

Needless to say, I’m so excited to get this figure, and she was so worth the wait! I’m loving this sculpt. The design is based on Joe Madureira’s design from the Age of Apocolypse storyline. I love that Hasbro used a different sash from Elektra and Mystique. It looks like it’s flowing and just looks great.

The paint apps are incredible. Really nice detail on her tattoos on her face. I’m not seeing any paint slop either.

For accessories Blink comes with 2 darts. In the comics, she uses these to help her teleport. She also comes with a base to simulate her teleporting.

Finally, Blink comes with Caliban’s left leg for the Build-A-Figure piece.

Blink is by far my favorite of this wave. I have been waiting such a long a Blink action figure and so happy get her!

Many thanks to Hasbro for sending us Blink!

You can find Blink at retail stores or you can buy directly from Hasbro Pulse.
