Marvel Legends X-Men Series 2

Hasbro has delivered plenty of Iron Men, Spider-Men, and Captain Americas over the last few years. Why? Cause that's what moms know from the movies and what they buy their kids when they're being hassled near the toy aisle. We've had some great X-Men movies during the last few years but no toys from them. Obviously, the characters and styles were different than the comic book versions, but X-Men toys have been lacking.

Hasbro made up for that last year by releasing one of the greatest series ever - The 2016 X-Men set which included Phoenix, Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Iceman, Havok, Deadpool, Cable and Wolverine. Grand. Slam. Obviously, the success of the Deadpool movie helped make Deadpool one of the hardest figures to find in this set. And the Build-A-Figure? Juggernaut. A very big, bad Juggernaut.

So this year's follow up is equally awesome. Capitalizing on the "Logan" movie, this set has Old Man Logan, as well as Polaris, Dazzler, Cyclops, Shatterstar, Sunfire and Colossus. Nice to get Polaris to team up with Havok. Also, the first appearance disco Dazzler has been on many a fan's want list for a long time. Well done Hasbro. Sunfire might just complete the New X-Men team if you use Warpath for Thunderbird.

And oh yeah, a Warlock Build-A-Figure. 

Almost forgot. Now if Hasbro can finish off some of the original New Mutants, that would be great. Where o' where is Dani Moonstar?

All in all, a great lineup.
