His most notorious trait was that he left behind a huge footprint, embedded in the mud. The humans called him Bigfoot; in the Himalayas, his nickname was the Abominable Snowman.

If you want to join in on the fun collecting of Comic Book Action Figures, you can pick up this really awesome edition of two of Alpha Flights members, Sasquatch and Shaman. Their biggest contribution to the comic book universe is their participation in the Canadian super-group, Alpha Flight. As the mystical beast, Dr. Walter Langkowski assumes the role of muscle and intimidating monster.

Sasquatch comes in as a 6" figure while Shaman is 5". Both of these form part of the Alpha Flight collection which is composed of Vindicator, Northstar, Aurora, Shaman, Puck, Sasquatch and Snowbird. Ideally, this is good for all ages. If you're 5, you can play; if you're 45, you can watch them grow in value as part of your collection.

Sasquatch is #5 on The Top 10 Marvel Monsters of Halloween, a weekly countdown list provided by The Superheroes List. If you like superheroes and Halloween, Check out the List!
