wm exclusive x-men origins wolv. 6" 2 packs

Recommended Posts

I went to check my schedule at work tonight and passed the toy department while they were stocking and ran across 5 cases of these. each case has 2 of each 2 pack. The colossus has a darker blue "x" across his chest and the stripes on beasts shoulders are gold instead of yellow (compared to marvel legends versions) The wolverine and cyclops are all new figures. Thankfully, because the pics i saw originally of the wolverine had the old toybiz face from the movie. Atlast a wolverine movie figure that doesnt look like a pug. Sadly i didnt take pics until i took them out of the package(too excited for new 6"), but i included a pic of the package if it helps you find em.

I saw these just outside of orlando tonight.... Beast and Colossus look about the same... however Cyclops and Wolverine look pretty bad... It looks like Cyclops has the generic body of Quicksilver, painted with movie colors over it. And Wolverine looked like maybe ultimate wolverine (not sure) with movie colors just painted over it. I wonder if they didn't get the molds from toybiz or if they were just too lazy to dig them out. When I first heard about these I got pretty excited thought maybe at later date (dvd release like they do with starwars) they might reissue Jean Grey to look like the prototype or at least better. I think it's obvious they put very little effort into these.

You can't deny that this wolverine looks 100 times better than any other movie version you've seen. I never got the old movie version of cyclops, but all of these fit in with marvel legends in terms of scale. The toybiz movie figures didnt.

I really like Cyclops. The head sculpt is a pretty good looks alot like James Marsden. I wanted Wolvie too, but could not afford to buy both.

 

 

Cyclops looks great with X3 Jean.

You ever notice how Hasbro makes things that are designed to fail? This is because they made these figures as what you would call a support line, since they will sell no matter what, due to hype, and they put little or no money into them. That money then goes directly back into the company for things that they are more focused on, like Star Wars Marvel U, and the GI Joe movie.

I read this about 15 years ago in a Toy magazine.

So get them while you can. I remember when the 6" Silver Surfer movie figure came out there was a whole end cap of them, I only bought 1 and when I went back 2 days later, they were all gone.

Does any one know if they are doing anymore of these? There were 2 awesome Wolvy figs released from the X2 movie one in a t-shirt and one in his leather jacket.

I sooo prefer my X2 toybiz figures... these are not worth the $24 pricetag... I'm sooo disappointed in these. I just don't see why they couldn't use the toybiz molds at least for the bodies.

The ONLY difference in colossus or beast is very very minor (almost unnoticable) paint apps. Other than that they are EXACTLY like the marvel legends x-3 versions. they are 24.00 (actually 23.?? but i get a discount so i dont really pay that much attention) It is not the same head that is on ult. wolverine. However it still looks just as bad, but at the same time it is much better than any toybiz x-movie version. The cyclops' head is spot on. They're outfits arent what they should be as far as the movie goes. But werent their movie outfits crap in the first place? Lord. I thought everyone would just be somewhat satiated by the fact they are putting out a 6" product.

The figures are just PLAIN HORRIBLE!!!

 

I mean, Cyclops is just a repainted Quicksilver with James Marsden head. No texture or costume stitches or more detail like TB´s Cyke.

 

Wolvie is a joke!!! Why use Ult. Wolverine´s body, which everybody hated, AGAIN!!?!?!?!?!?

 

How could Hasbro want us to be happy, when they promise they will have stuff for the 6" collectors and movie fans by giving us MEDIOCRE and CHEAP movie based figures????

 

To Hasbro´s team who´s in charge of ML and 6"stuff: STOP FOOLING US!!! When u said u had a surprise for collectors, who look for detail, paint apps, descent to great sculpt and great articulation, do u were thinking of us, or small kids who would dig the movie outfits and go for a fig that just looks ok to their eyes???

 

Till this point, how many collectors, wether u take us seriously or not, have u pleased with your products??? What would be your score, honestly, for your performance so far???

 

If u couldn´t manage the task, why take the licence from TB, who did a greater job than you could have had til this last 6" attempt???

 

I was Hasbro tolerant, with the new elbow and knee joints, which is what ruined most figures, the horrible paint apps, the head size reduction and inconsistency between figures (namor anyone?), but this movie figures are just wrong.

 

It only demonstrates ur being lazy.

 

But hey, not everything´s lost, u have a great sculptor, Paul Harding, working for u guys, and u have a great graphic design department.

 

 

 

 

 

You don´t know how much I really, REALLY, REALLY WANT YOU MAKE ME EAT EVERY SINGLE WORD AND BE PROVEN WRONG when the new two packs and Marvel Legends arrive, if planned, later this year.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
