Marvel Legends Giant Sized All New X-Men

Oops! Published this without finishing. All done now.

Since Hasbro recently gave us a new Nightcrawler and Colossus, I thought it would be fun to scrounge up all the characters from the reboot of the X-Men. In the late 60s/early 70s, the original X-Men titles had gotten stale and many of the issues from 67-93 were reprints of earlier stories.

In 1975, the X-Men were rebooted with the Giant Sized All New All Different X-Men. The original X-Men were missing so Professor X went looking for a new group. He gathered heroes from all over the world.

Storm from Africa, Colossus from Russia, Nightcrawler from Germany, Wolverine from Canada, Banshee from Ireland, and Thunderbird...a Native America. A global all-star cast.

Over the years, we saw Toybiz make a box set with its 5 inch figures, and Hasbro made a set for the Marvel Universe 3-3/4 inch line.

Here is a comparison from the different lines.

Marvel Legends Brotherhood of Evil Mutants

Well, this is the reincarnation of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. This one includes Mystique, Destiny, Pyro, Avalanche and Blob.

Mystique and Pyro are from the Marvel Legends line. Blob is as well but was the build a figure in one of the earliest Hasbro sets.  Destiny is a custom purchased on Ebay and Avalanche is from a separate line of  X-Men legends type figures.

Marvel Legends Original X-Men

I spent the weekend taking photos of my Marvel Legends X-Men; everything from the Original to the All New and Beyond. Might as well start with the Original X-Men: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Angel, and Professor Xavier of course.  The gate to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters came from the Marvel Girl and Rachel Summers Marvel Select figures. Came in handy for all the upcoming photos and blog posts.

Added in some of the original X-Men's first adversaries - Magneto, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
