ToyBiz – X-Men: Colossus

20Apr11

The ToyBiz X-Men could arguably be one of the greatest action figure lines – the late 80’s, early 90’s was a golden age for carded blister packs of 6″ plastic armies based on comics, cartoons and film. In 1991, ToyBiz crafted a line that was fun, articulated (enough) for play, and had some decent sculpts for the time with pretty good paint work for collectors.

I’ve picked up a number of the Colossus figures and variants.

ToyBiz – The Uncanny X-Men card with peg hole
Trading Card – Sticker on blister – Light Blue Hair – Yellow top on boots.

ToyBiz – The Uncanny X-Men card with hanger hook.
(Different)Trading Card – Dark Blue Hair – Full red boots.

ToyBiz – The Uncanny X-Men card with peg hole – Fassi Variant
Trading Card – Sticker on blister – Light Blue Hair – Yellow top on boots. Fassi sticker applied before the blister.

ToyBiz – The Uncanny X-Men card with peg hole
Trading Card – No sticker on blister – Light Blue Hair – Yellow top on boots.

Tyco – X-Men card with peg hole
No Trading Card – No sticker on blister – Dark Blue Hair – Dark Red coloring – Full red boots. Card less cluttered, but includes a european(?) multi-language splash bubble.

Anyone know of any other variants?
