Jim Lee Strike Team X-Men, by Wings

Recommended Posts

One of my favourite team looks and subsequent Toybiz boxsets back in the day. Got galvanised to finish these off the back of the Forge release. 

Matched the blues and yellows as best I could and went all out on the swappable heads, hands and effects!

Love this team! All the figures look great! I'm really hoping for a Strike Force Banshee soon!

Thank for the feedback everyone. This team garnered tons more attention than my other customs. Here's hoping they make official ones in the not too distant future 😁

Is that the House of M Wolverine head? It looks great.

That is amazing. Way to show Hasbro this can be done with a minimum of mold reuse. Good to see the omitted Moonstone buck for Storm. Beautiful work, man.

Really cool, Hasbro could easily do a 2 pack of figures kind of like what they did with the endgame quantum suit figures, just pack in a female body and a male body, put in storm, gambit, banshee and psylocke heads, a couple interchangeable hands and their dedicated accesories and done, wolverine can be easily put in a X-Men wave (since they like to pack in a wolverine in almost every x-men wave, and jubilee done later down the line. Great job

Truly fantastic!  Your work is very good on these.  I’ve been hoping that Hasbro would make these. I would easily purchase doubles (one for home and one for the office)

Nice job, though the screaming Banshee head is terrifying

Great job!

Hope Hasbro gets around to releasing 1 suit for each sex so there can be multiple head swaps, at least.

    • If we got one or two all MCU Legends waves for the Disney+ shows including Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Wandavision, Loki, What If...?, and Hawkeye then what 6-7 figures would you want in the wave and who would be the BAF? Maybe even two waves if you want. For me it would be. Wave One: 1. Falcon 2. Bucky 3. U.S. Agent 4. Baron Zemo 5.  Sharon Carter 6. Lady Loki/ Enchantress (Whoever Sophia Di Martino is playing) BAF: Maybe Red Hulk but I doubt it (The Thunderbolts may be set up in Falcon and thet Winter Soldier, but I doubt that we would actually see Red Hulk) Wave Two: 1. Agatha Harkness (Or the Grim Reaper or whoever the villain of the series is) 2. Darcy/Jimmy Woo/ Monica Rambeau/ Whoever Kathryn Hahn is playing which might actually be Agatha Harkness 3. The Watcher 4. Captain Carter 5.  Zombie Cap 6. Kate Bishop (Should come with Lucky the Pizza dog who was teased in recent concept art) BAF: Maybe Steve Rogers' Iron Man amour from What If...?    
    • Iceman was awesome looking in AoA. I like when they can pull of a weird sized figure. Giant spiked shoulders and fists. Huge, ice-slide body. Could be cool.
    • Didn't he have some giant sized appearances in his battle with Magneto in Amazing X-Men? I was actually thinking of the sentinels as a BAF the other day. They would indeed be cool. Could Hasbro do something that big anymore? The TB one was huge, and Fin Fang Foom was huge. How expensive would that line have to be to accommodate the cost of so much plastic. Maybe they choose all small characters: Lava-lamp Shadow King with a Sentinel leg. Tiny Sugarman a la X-Men Omega with the torso....
    • Maybe there's something to it, maybe not, but you can make the argument that she is showing a lot of skin, but anyone who has (or has even seen) the figure knows she has been very obviously "uncurved" on one of the character's most prominent "assets". Not being a "perv" but if they'd had somehow combined the accuracy of the Puck wave figure and the quality of this figure, it woulda been just that much better. It's a great figure with an amazing head sculpt but things like this and also the abandonment of the Moonstone mold and the lack of a very classic character such as Tigra (guarantee, she will get the bodysuit treatment) at least give the impression that there is an effort to tone down the female figures. There is no proof, nobody's offered an official statement, and any time on of the creative team has been cornered with the question they've been able to masterfully sidestep the issue. I'm sure someone's ready to blast out with the Angela figure and that's a great argument, but that was one great effort from a few years ago and it's been downhill ever since.
    • I already have the classic versions of the FF, with that I don't really need any new versions of the original 4. (unless they update Human Torch on the Sunfire mold. Wave 3: 1. The Watcher W/FLIGHT STAND (Um hello, Been waiting on this) 2. Classic Ronan 3. Champion 4. Psycho Man 5. Future Foundation Doom 6. Molecule Man    BAF: Dragon Man, Rawr! Possible substitutes: Alternate BAF: Classic BLASTAAR or Annihilus Baghead Spider-man, FF She-hulk (Obviously), Alternate-Attachments for Mr. Fantastic, Firelord, Kang, Mole-man, FF Wolverine.
