There must be something Marvel contract that says that all furry heroes must be brilliant scientists. Introduced in X-Men #120 (1979) by Chris Claremont and John Bryne, Sasquatch and the rest of Alpha Flight actually started off as enemies to the X-men. He was one of the first member to be recruited and trained by the Flight program (more on that when I do Alpha Flight team edition) and became the team resident scientist. He has had some of the strangest adventure including being turned into a woman or being made the vassal of the Beast god Tanaraq. When he was killed, he was placed in the Box armor.
Sasquatch has been a member of Alpha Flight most of his career, but he has been a member of Omega Flight and…………………….Alpha Flight Space Program run by Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers).
Sasquatch in action figure seems to have a curse. That being that whenever they release a figure of Man-Thing, then a few waves later, a resculpted version of Sasquatch will not be far behind. Toybiz did it twice (one in their 5inch line and one in their ML line) and Hasbro is doing it in their Deadpool wave as the BAF.
Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Deadpool – Sasquatch Wave Sasquatch (Build-A-Figure)
- Walter become the big furry form after he opened a hole into the dimension into the Great Beast where he’s body was link to Tanaraq. While he has been separated from the beast he still is able to become the big furry Sasquatch.
- Why you need it for your collection?:
- While the Toybiz one is a great figure, it’s suffers from rubbery joint and is bit thinner then you would expect from Sassy. It is nice if you don’t want to get the BAF figure from the Deadpool wave. However, the BAF is bigger, bulkier and has better sculpt IMO.
- Does it need a remake?:
