Okay, I know that in the post about the Rogue figure I said that the 90s looks are what I prefer for the X-Men, but Jean Grey is an exception. Her 90s look had those weird shoulder and thigh pads, and a headsock. Headsocks are the worst. But her Phoenix costume is pretty great. It's a nice color combination, and that jaunty sash just ties everything together. Hasbro is continuing to do a good job of giving a character long hair without it getting in the way of articulation too much, although in Phoenix's case, it is coupled with a somewhat overly long neck. Unless you count the jaunty sash as an accessory, Phoenix doesn't have any aside from the build-a-figure piece she is packaged with.
