Now as far as accessories go, he comes with some, but not a ton. Two pair of hands: clawed and fist. As for the head, we have a mask and maskless face. As for the BAF piece, he come swith Okoye's head. I don't think I'll be getting this BAF, honestly, but it does look good. It looks a lot like the actress from certain angles.

If there's one thing I have to say about Hasbro is that they are starting to really get the idea that the fanbase wants details.

Another thing that Hasbro has been doing (something I came across the middle of last year) is the 'digital printing' of their faces. Here's an
