I originally made a post about 90s Jim Lee X-Men Marvel Legends. I wanted to start an X-Men #1 collection/display but quickly realized that figures that are already out are hella expensive. So I decided to make one with Marvel Select. Wanted to know if there's any info on any of the figures.

There are 12 characters total on the issue cover and I already have 5 of them: Gambit, Beast, Wolverine, Colossus, and Magneto

2 are coming out: Rogue (which is already on its way to me!!!!), and Psylocke will be later this year.

I know Cyclops already came out but I hope they redo it in the Jim Lee style (especially since I heard Cyclops is sporting a similar outfit in the recent comics). So any news on the remaining characters would be awesome and extremely helpful!!! Thanks!!!31571.thumb.jpg.350eab4f0c9082db310335d7b8b31a1f.jpg

News in the future?  Because I don't think Diamond has revealed any plans for Jim Lee style X-Men past Psylocke.  They have released Jean Grey and Storm in other looks, but I don't think they've even made Professor X or Iceman figures yet.

I’m not aware of any news, but I would say hold out for Legends versions of the characters.  Hasbro has done really well about re-releasing figures and with all of the news and hype around X-Men figures it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see them put out sooner rather than later.  

Unless you really love Select over Legends, but based on your post it sounded like they were the second choice.

I knew about the Storm. Didn't know about Jean Grey, which version of her? Thanks

I'll be disappointed if that happens. I only had some Legends figures (did an Avengers display, movie and comic version) so that's why it was my first choice. Love the articulation of Legends over Select. But now that I have a few Select I love the sculpts and think those will work better in the display I want to make.

That’s awesome then!  To each their own.  I will say that their representations of characters tend to be much more comic accurate than some recent legends.  I had the Deadpool, Brown Costume Wolvie, first appearance Sabertooth, and Hawkeye once upon a time.  I loved them and displayed them until the legends counterparts were released and sold them/gave them away.  Good luck on the recreation!

Thanks!!! And you never know, I may have to mix in some Legends to complete the display.

There's a couple of Phoenix variants and a '60s Marvel Girl figure.

So changed my mind (again) about the display. Going with a mix of Legends and Select. The Select Wolverine forced my decision when posing him for the display ruined his left ankle. Also loved the Legends Gambit over the Select. Don't have the Legends Beast but based on reviews I've seen it looks like it'll be better for the display (looks like I'll be selling the Select Beast soon!)

I'm going to start posting pics of the display as I build it. As of this pic there's Legends Gambit and Wolverine (vintage), Select Colossus, Rogue, and Magneto. Next figures that are on their way are Legends Professor X and Legends Beast......

Isn't Select a different scale, though? 7" versus 6"? Your Magneto's going to be a giant!

I think I can make it work by positioning him closer which matches the Jim Lee cover. If I feel it's too out of scale I can replace him later with the Legends that's about to come out in the 3 pack. The Rogue is a Select and by positioning her further back she doesn't look out of scale.

Sweet. I can't wait to see the final display! It sounds like Iceman's going to be your white whale from both lines, though!

Yup, Iceman definitely will be. I'm hoping they release that version of him in an upcoming vintage wave.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make or where to get a custom made Iceman slide?

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
