Toy Biz – Giant Size X-Men – Six Pack

10Apr08

Here’s a nice set I picked up on ebay – a tribute to the new genesis of mutants in Giant-Size X-Men #1 – a six figure set by Toy Biz. This was released in 1998 – it is in very fine condition – just a few rubbed corners and one sticky patch where the price tag was.

You get Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm, Thunderbird, Banshee and Sunfire.

It is a nice set – although it would have been nice to include Wolverine and Cyclops (instead of Banshee & Sunfire) as they are bursting through the cover. Although Cyclops is obviously an original member – not sure why Wolverine was not included.

Here is a close up of Colossus – he looks leaner (and meaner) and taller than most of the other molds I have seen.

 

The blurb about Colossus states:

Peter Rasputin lived the gentle life of a Russian collective farmer until Professor Charles Xavier came seeking his aid. Eager to learn more about his mutant powers, Peter decided to make the trek to America and lend his superhuman abilities to Professor X’s new team of X-Men. Equipped with super-strength and able to transform his flesh into organic metal, Peter was dubbed “Colossus!” Though strong and powerful, this young mutant possesses a quieter, artistic side few have seen!
