Does anyone know if they have made Marvel Legends for every X-Men character on the Jim Lee X-Men #1 cover? And also made it in that style? I know the NY Toy Fair just showed the Magneto in that 3 pack and Colossus in the 2 pack. I just thought it would be cool to recreate that cover with Legends figures.

as of the Caliban wave yes for the blue team

  • Cyclops from the Warlock wave
  • Wolverine from both the Jugg wave and the Apocalypse wave (he wore the brown first then switch to the yellow)
  • Rogue from the Juggs wave
  • Psylocke from the Apocalypse wave
  • Jubilee from the Caliban wave
  • Gambit from the Cali wave
  • Beast from the Caliban
  • Magneto from the 80th set

but we are still waiting on members from the gold team, so far we have:

  • Jean from the Rocket racoon wave (needs redo though)
  • Archangel from the gamestop exclusive
  • Bishop from the sauron wave
  • Forge from the caliban wave
  • Colossus from the 80th set

toybiz did a version Storm and Iceman but both need a desparate update to fit in.

before anyone say Nightcrawle, Shadowcat and Rachel, they were over in England with Excalibur at the time and not a member of either team. Same for Cable and the X-force and Havok and the X-Factor.

Technically, yes... but there are a few that have not yet been made by Hasbro in the costumes from X-Men #1.

- Storm:  The only figure of Storm in her white “Gold Team” costume is from the Toy Biz X-Men series (2005)

https://marvelousnews.com/database/index.php?itemid=766

- Iceman:  The Iceman from the Juggernaut BAF wave represents a more modern version of the character with more ice protrusions, styled hair, and bare feet.  The figure from the “All-New X-Men” boxed set is closer to the X-Men #1 version of the character than his original “snowman” appearance from early Uncanny X-Men issues, but missing the X logo belt.  The Toy Biz Marvel Legends Series 8 (2005) figure has the X logo belt.

Jean Grey:  Hasbro made a version of the figure in this costume during the “Return of Marvel Legends” waves before the line was rebranded as “Infinite”.  So it’s been made, it’s just impossible to get for less than $80.

 

Obviously Professor X, Gambit, Beast, and Colossus are still waiting to be released in the coming months.

I hope so. I'll be surprised if we don't get at least 1 of the 3 in the vintage wave. (Iceman, Storm or Jean Grey)

I think a Toy Biz style Iceman would be pretty easy with either the “All New X-Men” boxed set belt from Cyclops or Angel and the Silver Surfer head or the “All New X-Men” Iceman on the slim male buck.

They could also use the Apocalypse wave Wolverine belt... just depends on if they want to be accurate to the 5” Toy Biz figure or if the want to be accurate to the Jim Lee costume art.

I'm hoping that silver costume Storm and Deathstrike are some of the "yet to be named" figs from the vintage wave, but that would be 3 female figs and we know that ain't gonna happen. If I was a betting man I would say Storm gets the nod. As far as the last figure? If they go the standard repaint route I can't think of anyone more suited for the task than Iceman. Of course, if new sculpts or parts are suddenly on the table for vintage waves, what about Longshot or Maverick or Pyro (though the last one is also reasonable for the X-Force wave).

I know I am pretty excited in what we are getting. Beast, Gambit, Jubilee and Forge are not that far away from hitting! I got them all pre-ordered. Also Charles is coming very soon! Somehow I got a feeling that Iceman might pop up like ArchAngel did as a Gamestop exclusive and as a deluxe with an iceslide. I don't know I just got a feeling.

I’ve never been that big a fan of Longshot... but I’d be ok if he was in one of the remaining Retro X-Men slots.

Well I doubt Hasbro will release remaining 90's Storm (and maybe Jean Grey or Iceman)  this year, I think they would like to save those 3 for the next year. Maybe we will see them at SDCC or next Toy Fair, as it is we are getting too many figures already.

Good point. Anyone taking bets that this guy makes it into the Vintage wave?

BTW, I'm confused. Could you possibly elaborate on the phrase "too many figures"?

It seems there is a general misconception regarding the upcoming 80th Anniversary Colossus. He's based on the Cockrum/Byrne look from the 70's/80's and not the Lee/Portacio design from the 90's.

 

On the left is Dave Cockrum's design and the other two images are from Lee and Portacio, respectively. Note the difference in Cockrum's pointed shoulders vs. Lee's squared design, the tops of the boots are different, and the wrist gauntlets as well.

 

I'm glad we're getting the classic Colossus costume but we still need an official Lee version too.

Aside from Storm, Jean and a better Iceman I'd also like to see an update on Toad, Pyro and Avalanche. And Morph! Man! Every time I remember the 90s series I remember him and Nimrod. I'd love to see them now that Hasbro is doing an amazing job lately. Also, now that we have Sauron and we are going to get a new Mister Sinister I'd also love to see a redo of Ka-zar, Shanna and Zabu.

Lol. I was half kidding. I'm a huge nerd and was brought up super poor so now days I'm buying up all the toys I never could afford as a kid, and at a time when action figures and the balance between design and artucularion are in harmonious balance. Basically enough is never enough. What I'm afraid of is with the acquisition of Power Rangers and Overwatch, and others, what kind of impact will it have on ML. I know there will be different creative and developmental teams for each line but the actual production facilities can only be stretched so far. Initially the impact will be minimal, but as all the other lines gain steam I'm afraid the quantity of ML product we've been accustomed to will be affected.

Oh :D sure, but for my budget, that is also split with comic books trades, such number of new figures is very taxing, even though I hardly get full waves.

What’d be great is a deluxe figure with the 90’s blue and gold X-Men uniform and a bunch of additional parts to create a variety of characters...

- Banshee head (neutral)

- Banshe head (screaming)

- Banshee cape

- Gambit head

- Gambit bo staff

- Gambit satchel

- Gambit cards effect

- Gambit trench coat 

- Gambit trench coat arms (have them interchangeable at the shoulder like Mr. Fantastic)

- Logan head

- Wolverine claw hands

- Morph head

- Morph evil head

- Joseph head

- Energy effects

- Flying (flat) hands 

- Gripping hands

- Fist hands

Hope it's the Jim Lee too. An updated Jean Grey, a tweaked Cyclops (such as the vintage blast effects), and I don't really know what other Wolverine Hasbro hasn't done yet lol.

    • In this segment called Marvelous Photo Of The Day, we spotlight awesome Toy Photography from some of the hottest photographers on the Internet today. For today we are spotlighting Photographer Aliska and her photo of the Marvel One:12 Collective Daredevil figure titled "Beat To Hell". You can purchase One:12 Collective figures from our sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.   "Beat To Hell" By Aliska Be sure to give Aliska a follow on Instagram and let her know what you think of their work in the comments below.
    • Believe it or not, they did release a Satana back in the 2013 SDCC Exclusive Thunderbolts boxed set.  It's not the classic look of course, but was pretty far from toned down for Hasbro.
    • That's what I'm holding out hope for. Too true, sad, but true.
    • I have to say the Walgreen's Invisible Woman is my favorite for three reasons: 1) she was my very first Marvel Legends figure, my gateway into collecting this brand; 2) Sue is my favorite female Marvel superhero; and 3) it's a good-looking figure with cool interchangeable hands, an attractive body and head sculpt--and H.E.R.B.I.E.! Other female Marvel Legends I really like are: Spider-Gwen Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew, original costume) Black Widow (vintage wave) The Enchantress Female characters that I want Hasbro to release are: Captain Marvel II/Photon/Spectrum (classic Monica Rambeau) She-Hulk (either from the Savage or Sensational She-Hulk comics, not the new version) Magik (classic New Mutants costume with the eldritch armored arm and a reasonable-sized sword) Gamora (original appearance, green fishnet-looking costume) Satana, the Devil's Daughter (I doubt this will happen) Colleen Wing (my Misty Knight figure needs her partner) Clea (Doctor Strange's paramour) Tigra Princess Python (from the Circus of Crime, complete with giant bendy-wire snake that can wrap around her) Rogue (original green costume, hood, short hair) The Wasp is another one of my favorite Marvel women, and I have both of her comic figures, but I really would like to see another based on one of her more iconic costumes from either the '70s or '80s.
    • Carol Danvers Ms Marvel hands down. She looks like how a real woman looks (I know, I collect toys, how would I know what a real woman should look like). Her proportions are perfect to me. She is one character that Hasbro and even Toybiz seems to just knock out of the park. Loved the Toybiz’s version and the Hasbro one upped that version as well. A few others are Mockingbird (great sculpt and costume), Photon (or was she Pulsar? Beautiful face) MCU Wasp was a pleasant surprise, and i thought the Riders Black Widow was a welcome minor change to her usual offering
