I'm a new ML collector. I am trying to get an early Astonishing X-Men team together.

 

Who can explain the what the differences are between the X-Men wave 3 Colossus and the wave 5 ML Colossus?

 

The wave 5 figure seems to go for about $30-50 on eBay with BIN and I seldom have seen the other but I wanted to know because I wanted to get the best deal possible.

The XMC 3 Colossus has a lighter paintjob on the costume,Looks more silver than the previous,New Knee pads,A new neck joint (As oppsed to the BJ Neck the ML5 had) and afew minor differences in the overall sculpt.

 

I like the XMC Colossus,As it is very similar to his AXM costume,Rather than the ML5,Which sports the Giant Size-esque version.

The ML series 5 is the more classic looking version where as the other one is a more recent look with a different face sculpt and brighter colors. Also notice the knees and shoulders. While I'm at it, the Apocalypse series Wolverine is the one you want. It even comes with an Astonishing Xmen issue. If you need any other help, the database here has great archive photos also.

Okay, I did a reasonable BIN on X-Men Colossus last night. So, I need need to save my pennies and get Cyclops and Wolverine. I am looking forward to completing my Giant Man too. I just need the Havok leg, and then the two boots and hand from the AOA figs. I don't want the figs just the parts...any ideas.

There is a place on ebay called "superseller_supreme". They've got a couple of the left legs and feet that you're looking for. Here's one of the item numbers. 270409927713 I've dealt with them before and they're pretty reasonable. Good luck with the rest!

the XMC has a brighter silver paint , the shoulders and the knee are changed from the series 5. the series 5 is known to have a loose torso/ab joint as well. not a problem on the XMC. as far as price , i would say that the XMC will be less than the series 5.
