I wonder what would make a good Amanda Sefton head?

It was actually Sunder, not Strong Guy! And, like Storm, he and Legion didnt actually wear the uniform except on the cover of that one issue. Amanda Sefton did, though, as did Sharon Friedlander and Tom Corsi.

Thanks for the correction. Ill have to go back and read that issue again. My old memory is getting rusty.
Funny thing about this is Strong Guy was supposed to be moved to the X-Men at one time. It was something Jim Lee tried to strong arm before he bailed on Marvel for Image. He saw the growing popularity of Guido and lobbied to have him put on the Blue Team as an analog to Gold Team's Colossus. I guess it was put in motion and he was supposed to join the Blue sometime after X-Tinction Agenda but that was about the time all the artists split and plans changed shortly afterward. It's even clear, in the trading cards that were already in production at the time, there is an X-Men Team Picture which clearly includes Strong Guy in the photo, but then later got labeled as Sunder even though he spent like what, three issues in a uniform and then got unceremoniously shot and killed. Not sure where I read it, but I'm sure it was in one of the thousands of articles that were being written about the Image guys when they turned the comic industry on it's head.
Edit: added picture
Very excited to add to my OUTBACK collection. This figure looks great...although I would have preferred the Scarlet Witch upper body for this figure...im still very happy we are getting it. Now...im really wanting Psylocke in her armor now!!
Sweet! Face looks absolutely fantastic! Always happy to have more classic looks on the display!
cool. have always desired the aerobics tank top outfit more than any but thisll fill that space until then.
That head sculpt is gorgeous. It's distinctly J. Scott Campbell so it doesn't actually look like Rogue, but it is beautiful. I prefer the old one. I too am miffed that the costume lines are just painted. Again, there is a completely good and underutilized Scarlet Witch body mold that has sculpted lines that would have worked fine for this figure but......Hasbro. Still happy to have it and all in all it turned out good.
That comparison picture is like night and day. The new figure's face is such a huge improvement, as is the basic bodysculpt. It's a bummer the costume details aren't sculpted on, but it's overall still a much better likeness.
Shown below via SBToyz is an in-hand look at the new Marvel Legends Outback Rogue Figure from Hasbro. You can purchase this figure from our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth.
I'm so glad the M figure's headscuplt looks better than at first. The team is really nailing 'em these days.

Good find. And on that note it does almost look exactly like the artwork, especially in the face sculpt. My problem with this figure at all is the body mold they chose. Again, they choose the very well done, yet quickly wearing out it's welcome, Shriek mold and painted on the edges of the green bustier part of the figure when they have a perfectly good, but very underused Scarlet Witch mold which they purposely went back and retooled because the legs were too long and the heels didn't allow it to stand properly. Then they went on to use it to redo SW and another version of The Wasp and then it went away again. It's a beautiful body model and it would have been perfect for this. Again, I just question Hasbro's decision making on some (actually many) of these long awaited/anticipated characters. Sure this one has the pinless technology, but damn, in 2023 can they not find an easy way to convert and design the arms and legs of one figure to universally fit on another figure of similar size. Do they literally have to redesign an entire body mold when the go to pinless? I know that's not correct, because I've seen many figures that have both pinned and pinless components to them, especially in the favored child, MCU figures.
And the recent Baron Strucker shows Hasbro can take an existing pinned body and convert it to a pinless body.
