    This will go nicely with my Haslab Sentinel. The X-Men get their own giant bot to even the odds. :)

    I'm guessing Scott and Logan were inside the Blackbird when it was scanned.

    Just finished the entire X-Men Animated series a few days ago on Disney+, so this couldn’t have come at a better time. Now all we need is a miniature Jean Grey.... would be fun to play out the Phoenix Saga, subbing Sky Lynx in as the space shuttle :lol

    That\'s pretty nice.  I\'m up for it.  It\'s miles better than the previous Marvel crossover TFs.  Maybe there\'s hope for a good Starwars crossover TF yet?

    I don't want it, but I'm legitimately impressed with how unique this mold is. First off, it looks pretty good (when it's not posed doofily, like the photo with the white background)... FAR better than Maverick, and yes this is more along the lines of Ectotron or Gigawatt but even better because it's not just a modded pre-existing mold. It looks like they took a couple of very small cues from Movie Jetfire (the part over the neck mainly) but you can tell that this was clearly developed from scratch. It's VERY X-menny! I'm pleased for fans of this.

    That said, if the March releases come in G1 TF style packaging instead of old school XMen toys style packaging, I'd consider buying it!

    Not necessarily. Packaging/backdrop plus maybe the quality could be different. But more like 49.99 if anything. ;) 


    I actually LIKE Maverick! Buuuut..... I'm waiting for a repaint done with a better vibrancy of color. But I definitely dig the mold. The concept with XSpanse here is done well though. REALLY WELL imo. Although one more character effect add on like Marvel Girl/Jean Grey's fire effect piece. Magneto's helmet that flips up on a second crossover VILLIAN figure sounds really dope too



    25% off coupon? Can you assist me where, please? :)  I buy stuff all time from there too what gives :/


    DEFINITELY! Hate it. Pretty much. X-SPENSE would of even been better.


    How can you know for sure yet? Lol. I think I may be the only one left that remembers to judge something "to be better than" after I hold it in hand, knows how it looks/feels in hand, & how well it operates.

    The face looks a bit like idw overlord and the alt mode looks a bit like one of overlords alt modes so I could see this mold lending itself well to being an overlord custom repaint.

    Just pre-ordered from Target.com with the 25% off one toy! $48.74 shipped! :) 

    If you used the 25% off deal already, you can sign up for another Target.com account and/or use your wife/brother/sister/mom/dad's Target.com:
    Toys : Target

    Perhaps.

    I bought most of the Marvel X-overs back in the day for super cheap.

    I recently pulled them out of storage in recent months, and I will say in 2020 they are really campy and fun. Huge chunks of plastic. G1/Golden age of X-overs. :D 

    Both Hulks are amazing in 2020 especially!

    Yes, the entire jet mode and all its kibble are very small indeed.

    Honestly, IMO, these were so much more better than the Star Wars TF's from before. I think I have just about all of them downstairs in storage

    I was patiently waiting for them to try it again

    But with better articulation and transformations than before

    So I'm pleasantly happy with this

    Ghostbusters, back to the future, x-men, maverick

    They are great, though gigawatt is the weakest entry to me

    Marvel (again)
    Star Wars (again)
    TMNT
    Scooby-doo
    Speed Racer
    Star Trek
    Independence Day
    Lost in space

    Matrix (quintesson storyline?)
    Terminator (seekers pls)
    Starship Troopers (insecticons?)
    Jurassic Park
    Megas XLR
    Teen titans
