My Marvel Legends X-Men Apocalypse build a figure wave came in today from Big Bad Toy Store and it is a sweet set! Storm is perfect. I was worried about Psylocke because she had black hair in all of the promotional shots but mine arrived with the correct purple hue. I wish Madrox would have had his green t-shirt look from the Peter David X-Factor run and I’m unhappy with the continual re-use of his coat, but I’m otherwise OK with him. Wolverine is good, but I just didn’t want to get yet another Wolverine. Gladiator is awesome! I’m not a fan of the costume choice on Magneto, but it’s a great figure. I’m not fond of Sabretooth. I would have been fine with keeping the old Toy Biz figure. And finally, Apocalypse is perfect. Overall, a great set of figures that I’m happy to add to my collection.
Just pop a Captain America Winter Soldier head onto a Reed Richards and you have Johnny Storm! Fitting, since both characters were played by Chris Evans.
Old Man Logan, Typhoid Mary, and Spider-Ham have joined the Geek Room Marvel Legends collection!
Uncanny X-Men #275 – I found this issue in a flea market about 14 years ago. It’s from Finland. It’s since been signed by Chris Claremont, Jim Lee, and Scott Williams. This one is special to me mostly because of the origin of its publication and the signatures. I might add its also a part of my second favorite X-Men storyline ever. I still get chills when Magneto makes his final choice to turn back on his reformed ways as he closes his fist.
