Marvel Gallery PVC Diorama: The X-Men's Savage Land Rogue
Diamond Select is always good for creating figures and statues from characters that are "in the spotlight" at the time of release. Luke Cage...Deadpool...Spider-Gwen...

Here's their new Marvel Gallery PVC Diorama of Rogue in her skimpy, silly ass Savage Land swimsuit because why the hell not.

I'll save further gushing for the review, but strongly consider popping for this series!! Here's the announcement...
