Above we have the 3 version of X-23, two from Toybiz which are variants in the same wave, and one from Hasbro in her X-force costume. The Hasbro body mold is definitely the best. Both the Toybiz X-23 has the same body mold, which I find flimsy and very difficult to pose despite having a lot of joints. Toybiz really suck with their female figures, and this pair is no better.

All three figures are about the same height. Toybiz purple X-23 is slightly taller.

Their hair are all different. Hasbro X-23 has the best hair, which is swaying sideways, the black variant X-23 has decent hair. The purple X-23 has ragged and thick bushy hair like Hermione Granger. Both the Toybiz X-23 has restricted head movement due the hair going over the shoulders. At least Hasbro X-23 can look left and right.

Double hinge joint elbows are ever present in Toybiz female figures. That’s about the only good thing about Toybiz female figures. Hasbro X-23 is similar to most of the other Hasbro female figures; single hinge elbows, which only allows the arm to bend about 90 degrees only.

You can also see over here that the Toybiz X-23 has their necks inclined forward.

Hasbro X-23 has the most matured and fierce looking expression. Toybiz black variant X-23 has a calm look and slim-looking young face. Toybiz purple X-23 has a round baby face which reminds me of Selena Gomez. Heh. Hasbro has the best head in my opinion, with the hair sculpt and expression, followed by Toybiz black variant X-23. I still don’t understand why the head sculpt is so different for the two Toybiz figures.

Ah the claws. Hasbro wins this. X-23 has the same detachable claws as the recent Hasbro Wolverines (although there would be a visible small hole at the knuckles if you remove them). The Toybiz claws are difficult to straighten and looks funny, the way it pops out of the hand (sculpted together with the hand, just paintwork differentiating the hands and the claws).

Hasbro X-23 has some nice sculpting to the straps of the boots, but lacks the foot claw. Both the Toybiz X-23 has feet claws which can be folded into the sole of the foot. There would be a visible silver part when its folded though, as seen in the very first picture at the top of the post.

TL;DR

Hasbro X-23 (Sasquatch BAF Wave):

+ Best head and hair sculpt between the 3 figures

+ Same detachable claw as recent Hasbro Wolverine figures

+ Better articulation (even though missing double hinge elbow joint)

+ Nice boot sculpt

– No feet claws

Toybiz X-23 black suit variant (Apocalypse BAF Wave):

+ Decent unmasked head

+ Has feet claws but a silver part can be seen when it is folded in

– Lousy Toybiz female body mold, difficult to pose and slightly flimsy

– Claws difficult to straighten, and does not look as nice as Hasbro X-23’s claws as it is sculpted together with the hands

Toybiz X-23 purple suit variant9Apocalypse BAF Wave):

+ Has feet claws but a silver part can be seen when it is folded in

– Round baby face

– Lousy Toybiz female body mold, difficult to pose and slightly flimsy

– Claws difficult to straighten, and does not look as nice as Hasbro X-23’s claws as it is sculpted together with the hands

My Verdict

Hasbro X-force X-23 is a win for me, but if you need X-23 out of their X-force costume, the Toybiz black suit variant X-23 looks better than the baby-faced purple variant.
