Differences

Both figures are the same, using the Bucky Cap body, except for the arms. The arms on the 3-pack Cyclops are jacket-ed arms.

They have the same exact straps on the chest, wrist, thigh and calf.

Paintwork is different though. The blue and yellow on both figure are different, with the 3-pack Cyclops having a darker shade of blue and lighter shade of yellow as compared to the Warlock Cyclops.

Since they have the same body, they have the same height.

3-pack Cyclops has an X-men logo painted on the both sides at the deltoid. The jacket is a reuse from the Old Man Logan figure.

Both of them suffer from dropping straps on the thigh and calves. Lol. You’ll need to glue them, otherwise the strap can slide down if you move the figure around.

The masked head sculpt is the same.

Above are the alternate unmasked Scott Summers head.

The left one has sculpted hair, while the right one has a separate piece of hair which is glued to the head.

For the left head, you can see the paint bleeding of skin colour on to the hair.

The head on the right has better likeness to the masked head, especially at the chin area.

Both have paint app problem on the shades; the red paint bleed on the face. You’d have to scrutinize and choose if you buy it off retail and if there’s a few choices to choose from.

These 2 head fits the Warlock Cyclops.

My Verdict

Marvel Legends - Cyclops (Warlock BAF Wave) vs Cyclops (Love Triangle 3-pack)

It’s really a matter of preference to have your ideal Jim Lee Cyclops. I’m happy with the Warlock Cyclops, but some prefer to kit bash to get their ideal colour on him.
