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 😁

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.

    • 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.
