Last year Hasbro revealed they’ll be doing a line of X-Men The Animated Series Marvel Legends figures. These figures will be of X-Men figures they have released with a new cel-shaded deco with some new accessories and featured in packaging that recreates the look of the original VHS boxes the episodes came in when they were released on VHS.
It’s nice to get a closer look at these figures and I really do love how they have turned out. The cel-shading works so well on them and is rather subtle in some places, though my favorite one has to be Mr. Sinister as it really works well for him especially for his look in the series. I do wonder what other characters they’ll do in this line, I can definitely see figures of Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Gambit, Rogue, Magneto, Sabertooth, Mystique, Apocalypse, Jean Grey/Phoenix, Bishop, and Cable being released in this line and all of them would sell very well.
I really love the VHS packaging as they are the perfect recreations of them. Also, the boxes look great stacked together so it would be great to get more of these down the line and I am sure we’ll see more of them later this year. I would love to get my hands on these when they are released.
These are Hasbro Pulse exclusives but I have seen them on some retail sites here in the UK including InDemand Toys. They are scheduled to be released in June of this year.
