Marvel Legends Signature Series Cyclops – X-Men character. Target Stores Exclusive. 9 inch fully poseable action figure from Hasbro Toys. Figure MIB (Mint In Box) but box damaged.
This Cyclops was the tenth Signature Series action figure released by Hasbro after acquiring the license to produce Marvel characters. ToyBiz had already released the Marvel Famous Covers line before Hasbro produced a similar line of 9 inch cloth costumed action figures under the Spiderman Origins line, featuring heroes related, sometimes loosely, to Spiderman. With Cyclops however, the packaging no longer mentioned Spiderman, instead is labeled Marvel Icons.
Scott Summers was the first young mutant recruited by Professor Xavier for tutelage of his special powers, away from growing persecution of the general public. The unknown X-Gene that caused Scott’s mutant evolution is extremely dangerous, revealing itself in the form of powerful concussive beams that shoot from his eyes. This optic blast can only be controlled by ruby quartz, fused into either his special visor or sunglasses. While unable to turn this beam off, Summers gifted sense of special geometry has allowed him to focus the optic blast with great accuracy in the intensity and width, as well as bounce it between shiny surfaced objects to achieve target.
