PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve enjoyed the adventures of Alpha Flight since I first read about them in the pages of “Uncanny X-Men” so very long ago and I even was a regular collector of their own “Alpha Flight” comic series that I believe launched in 1983. The characters were a creation of the legendary John Byrne so there was no way that I wasn’t going to be following their adventures. As a matter of fact, the timing of this set is perfect since we just saw a facsimile edition of “Alpha Flight” #1 hitting the racks of the local comic book retailers and I highly recommend this if you have not purchased a copy yet. Now the one concern I have about the set is that we don’t have Sasquatch represented here and he was my very favorite character from the team. I do realize that the Sasquatch character was the Build-A-Figure in an X-Force series from May 2018 but still. I like what I like. Depending on the financials in the coming months perhaps I will snag this for myself and as I close up I wonder what you readers think about this new group of collectibles. You can chime in down in the comments section below and wow wouldn’t it be cool to have them appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well? Let me stop before I go too far left of center. Ciao.
