These figures have been out for a couple of months depending on where you might be shopping but my local store only just got their entire set the other day and that let’s me share all of the images with you of this new “Marvel Legends Series” which is 100% X-Men themed. As readers know, the X-Men films are NOT tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe so these would not be movie related figures and are instead more in line with the current comic book versions which I don’t mind at all. There are “7” figures making up this set and they are Colossus, Shatterstar, Dazzler, Polaris, Cyclops, Sunfire and Old Man Logan. Each of these figures (except the Old Man Logan one) include a piece of the Warlock alien that was a part of the “New Mutants” for a number of years. I snagged these images with my mobile device this time around and have the front and back of the packaging. They were taken at Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and you can check out their Yelp right HERE.
Here’s a visual of the assembled Warlock and the line of the series. Smaller for sure so I will rectify that with the next image.
Here is the larger visual of the fully assembled Warlock. He has some nice detail for sure. Nice work on this one design team.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’m not actively collecting these figures at the present time I was sure glad to see a few characters making an appearance. I think my two fast favorites come via Shatterstar and Dazzler. Shatterstar looks pretty close to his comic book self and Dazzler even has her vintage garb and roller skates. The only downside to her is that the skates wheels DO NOT turn but that is a minor issue to me at the end of the day. I might actually pick these two up just the same since I’ve always liked both characters. What do you readers think of this batch of Marvel Legends? Do they meet your collector fancy? Will you be adding them to your own stockpile of similar action figures? Let me know down in the comments below.
