X is for X-Men

The X-Men are a superhero mutant team each with their own unique powers.
They were created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The X-Men #1 in September 1963.

I am not a follower of comic books but I am a movie lover.
Hence when 3 X-men movies were made, I picked up some of the X-men figures from the movies.

In my collection, I have the movie version of Cyclops, Wolverine, Juggernaut, Night Crawler, Colossus, Beast and Mystic.
The sculpting for Juggernaut, Night Crawler, Colossus, Cyclops and Beast is pretty good as compared to Wolverine and Mystic.
This is mainly becasue they were produced later either under the X-Men 2 movie series (Night Crawler and Cyclops) or Marvel Legends (Juggernaut, Colossus and Beast).
The figures from the first X-Men movie are pretty crappy and thank goodness they have improved over time.
The paint ops is generally good across all the figures with a little slop here and there. However this is expected for mass market toys.

Articulation is good especially for those under the Marvel Legends series. This make them great for display.
They are superheroes so some dynamic poses are great!

I had these figures pretty long so I can't really remember if they came with any accessories.
I don't display them with accessories, hence some of the accessories are most probably stored away somewhere in the store room.

Overall, these are pretty cool figures to have in my collection.

AH! I love X-Men and I must admit that I am jealous of your collection! I have seen so many X-Men figures but never seen Night Crawler. AWESOME!
