AKA; Dr. L, Walt, Box, Wanda Langkowski
There must be something Marvel’s 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 adventures, including being turned into a woman or being made the vassal of the Beast god Tanaraq. When he was believed 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 form seems to have a curse. That being that whenever they release a figure of Man-Thing, then a few waves later, a re-sculpted version of Sasquatch will not be far behind. Toybiz did it twice (one in their 5inch line and one in their ML line). Hasbro did a whole new sculpt, however, when they released their version of Sasquatch.
Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Deadpool – Sasquatch Wave Sasquatch (Build-A-Figure)
- Walter gained the big furry form after he opened a hole into the dimension of the Great Beasts, 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?:
Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
