  1. Thanks for the update. I ordered mine today, along with several items I had been waiting on, so I was able to use my 20% off code on the whole order.

  2. I have all the X-Men ToyBiz figures, including all the variants. I do know there were 4 Marvel books highlighting the figures and toys back in the late 90's. I am not aware of the site, I can look for it.

    Here's my collection:

    all i gotta say is wow that a lot of stuff,i collect the early 90s toybiz

    x-men/x-force figures i was just wondering what is your most rare repaint from those series

     

     

    The grey haired Forge with brown holster. I do have a Jean Grey from the Onslaught series where her blue parts of the costume are a metallic green. I haven't seen it listed in any guide. Also Skin from the Generation X series came with a headset, some were gold, some were silver. All the variants are MOC packed away. I only have so much room, so not everything can be displayed.

    I also have the black claw Wolverine from Secret Wars MOC.

  3. If everyone remembers in years past, some items are shown at the US Toyfair, that is items that are ready to be shown. More items are shown at the subsequent comic cons and wizard world events. The toy companies have to keep building interest, keep us in suspense, and continually develop new products.

     

    Patience is a virtue.

     

    I am an X-Men fan and would love nothing more than to keep growing my collection, but having a year off to save up money for next year when there will a large assortment of Wolverine and X-Men items, I'm ok with that.

     

    Be patient and you will be pleasantly surprised!!!

  4. I will purchase the Wolverine and any other X-Men characters since I collect everything X-Men.

     

    These are kind of neat, they're different than a normal action figure and enhance the look of my collection because of the variety of designs different lines offer.

  5. Well, I hate that I have to buy a pack of 4 figures when I already have 3 of them, just to get Emma...

     

    But I will B)

     

    Also, I'm loving the Astonishing Cyclops!

     

     

    All the figures are new paint jobs, only Wolverine has the same pose. Magneto is a loose figure, he is not on the metal base you see on his first one. Colossus first figure has closed fists, this is open fists, plus he has different boots. Wolverine has a different paint job on his belt, it does not have the X, but the pose is the same. So you will get different figures!!

  6. Aw man, that'd be awesome if they brought the show and toys back! I know it'll never happen, but it'd be sweet. The figures mighta been cartoony, but at least they were sculpted just like the show. That cartoon had some really cool, complex story lines and kick @$$ animation too. Every so often I check on Evolution toys on Ebay. They command respectable prices in the aftermarket. I've seen an entire set of figures go for hundreds of dollars.

     

    Sidenote: Does anyone have info on any unproduced figures for the series? Was there ever going to be a Beast figure?

     

     

    There was a Beast prototype and a Professor X and Adventure Van pack that never made it to production.

  7. I definitely open my figures.

     

    These are toys, they are meant to be shipped to the store in packages to protect them, showcase the accessories, then you take them home and open them. You create teams, dioramas, battle scenes, etc.

    For example, as an X-Men collector, years ago Gambit was with the X-Men and the White Queen was a villian, now I have them switched. I can do that because they are open. You can create poses. Let's be honest, Spider-man in a package is ok, but if you take him and gave him webbing and allowed him to hang upside down in his "spidy pose" wouldn't that be cool???!!!! Can't do that in a package.

     

    Seriously, when you look at a carded figure, I should say the size of a carded figure, how many open figures can you place in the same space? Quite a few more. Enjoy the action figures/toys/collectibles whatever you may call them for what they truly are: a toy!!!

     

    This allows me to share my passion with my kids, display a lot of toys to show off my collection, and easily change arrangements as needed.

     

    To see what I mean, here is the direct link to my marvelous collection posted on this site:

    http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=23&itemid=11170

     

    For those of you that got "bad figures with loose joints", it happens, I have a few, but I think it is an exception not the rule.

     

    As far as value, these things are produced in such mass quantities, except for variants, they won't be worth too much. Toys from the early 1980's and before are worth more because the huge collector craze was not as rampant as it is now, plus some toys were produced in lesser quantities.

     

    Each collector has to do what they feel is best for themselves, my personal opinion is open and enjoy the figures!!!

  8. First off, thank you very much for a well done podcast.

     

    Second, my question revolves around creating figures based off artist renditions or teams through the years.

     

    For example the X-Men had the basic yellow/blue costume when they first appeared. They changed costumes around X-Men #40. X-Factor and Avengers are other examples of teams changing costumes over the years.

    Are you considering this option of inserting characters based off their past costumes so collectors can create teams "through the ages"?

     

    As far as artist renditions, you have the anime look of Joe Madueria, the Jim Lee style, and the abstract drawings of Sam Keith, the classics of Jack Kirby, Dave Cockrum, etc.

    Is there a chance of creating "Creator inspired Marvel Legends"?

     

    Thank you for your consideration and keep making as many X-Men characters as you can.

    Eric

  9. It's like one of Stan Lee's wet dreams!!!!

     

    It's a brilliant collection!

    I noticed you have all the pocket comics in there as well: I remember playing with those when I was younger, they were one of my favourite toys so much so that when I grew up (In the loosest possible sense) I hunted for the MOC ones.

     

    I bet moving house is killer as well.

     

    Do you know what you're gonna end up doing with your collection?

     

    Thank you. I did move about 3 years ago and it wasn't too bad. I was able to pack up everything in about a week, bought a lot of bubble wrap and nothing was broken. I hope I don't have to move for a long time.

     

    I don't really think about getting rid of my collection. My kids enjoy it, they know the characters, they show their friends, I'm sure one of them will inherit it one day. Or my wife will threaten me to take her on some year long cruise so I'll have to sell it then, who knows.

  10. eric can you enlighten me as to where that TOTALLY SWANK 6 pack with wolverine, black tom, astral plane professor, jean, xcutioner and sunfire came from.

     

    i love the colors on that. :)

     

     

    It's a bootleg I got from a guy in Canada off ebay. The funny thing is, I almost did not get it. The guy took my money and never bothered to send it. After I filed a Paypal complaint, about 5 weeks later I finally received it. Unfortunately, he mailed it by just wrapping the 6 pack in brown paper, so the box is banged up a bit, but at least I do have it.

     

    If you would like close-ups or pics of the back, let me know.

     

    Thanks

    Eric

  11. I thought stormfan had the xmen down but this guy is coming close! Freakn crazy stuff man its more like what don't you have than what do you have heh! zomg! I don't see the highly unofficial (I am sure...) nightcrawler belt buckle they are selling at a local mall near me though ! :D

     

     

    Thanks.

     

    I do have the Nightcrawler, Cyclops and both Wolverine belt buckles. They are on the second page of pictures, picture number 6. In that picture, the middle shelf on the right side of the "X-Men Unite" stampers are the buckles.

     

    What I do not have out are all my variant figures MOC and multi-packs like the X-Men/Streetfighter, some tshirts, towels, and sleeping bags and sheets.
