    After seeing the new X-men line in last months Toyfare, I was surprised to see them in TRU here in the UK yesterday!

    Its the line with Archangel, Cyclops, Stealth and Ninja Wolverine and Storm. To be honest though, Toybiz's promotional pictures make them look awesome, but in the flesh they're kinda 'Ok I guess'.

    Anyway, the point of this thread is to ask if they're out in any other countries yet?

    Yeah, I noticed they've been here for a few weeks. I never noticed Storm though. I guess that's the "hot"/chase/variant figure?

    Dunno, I'm not even sure I want to pick any of them up.

    Stealth Wolverine seems kinda pointless, Wolverine can pretty much see in the dark anyway. Cyclops with a rocket Launcher seems kinda pointless, seeing as he packs a bazooka behind his glasses. If the Ninja Wolverine looked more like the promo shot I'd get it. Gambit just looks 'ick'.

    Storm has no features at all, just a typical Marvel legends display stand (just like the stand that came with the Sentinel series Marvel Legends). I am sort of tempted by Archangel though... I thought he was cool. The only problem there is I just picked up a ML Sentinel Series Angel, why would I want another? Hmm.

    I actually really like this series, especially future waves. Many of the costumes are from the various X titles and some of the new costumes are pretty cool. It's like alternate reality versions of the X-men.

    I love to get a Archangel to go with the ML Apocalyses I own. Which toy version of Archangel is the best in your opinion? I want one with decent articulation and close to look of the comic.

    I was very tempted to get the ninja Wolverine, but that triple katana made it cheesy :p

    I have my Archangel with Sinister adn Apocalypse as well.

    Anyway, I saw the Storm. Only reason I would get it is for the base. The ML base was horrid. Also, I have yet to see Archangel. Curious as to the detail changes. It's a straight repaint of the X-Men Legend line, which is a very nice figure.

    All I've gotten is the Storm in white costume. The Archangel is just a repaint of the original, I've seen them a few times and they have a darker paint job than the original and he has bright yellow eyebrows. Other than that he's the same.

    Ditto that.

    For the record, Storm, Archangel and Gambit are all 1 per case, so that's why they're elusive (not that it matters with Gambit, since he sucks). The rest is multiple Wolverines and Cyclops.
    Still, I like the line as it sort of folds XMC and the 'movie' line into an all-encompassing one that looks to have some really good figures in with the kiddie stuff (helloooo Rogue).

    I saw a Magneto and Beast today at my local TRU. Some other guy was swiping them all, but I at least got to look at them. I'm still really iffy on getting them, but I would like to see what the Archangel looks like.

    I picked up 2 Magneto's today, for my brother and I. I didn't know the new figures were out. I didn't see Beast though. Magneto looks awesome. Love the look.

    Actually all the paint on Archangel is different. But it does look very similar since it's essentially the same thing.

    I got Archangel because I'm a Warren fan, and White Storm, because I'm a sucker for Marvel Legends.

    I'm stickin' with Marvel Legends.

    Not because I don't think some of these are cool... some are very cool... but because the LAST thing I need to do is take up another collection :redface2: 

    Though, being a Wolvie nut, I might still get those.

    I'm such a sheep.

    Have fun!!!
