Hasbro dips into the X-Men movies with new action figures including Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine!
We still have The New Mutants coming in April before the Marvel Cinematic Universe eventually reboots the X-Men movies but since the beginning of the Marvel Legends line, we never got a single figure from these movies despite getting tons of X-Men comics figures.
Hasbro announced a huge surprise during their Hasbro Pulse event today at the New York Toy Fair by revealing they’ll be doing figures from the beloved and troubled franchise this Fall! Obviously, if you do figures from the X-Men movies, you need Wolverine and that’s exactly what Hasbro is giving us – Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, not once but twice!
The leather jacket Wolverine will be part of the wave dedicated to these movies along with Mystique (Rebecca Romijn’s version) and also Domino from Deadpool. There’ll also be two 2-packs. The first one is Professor X and Magneto with two different heads – Ian Mckellen’s and Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, Patrick Stewart’s and James McAvoy’s Professor X! Fans can rejoice, Hasbro has thought everything through for this! The second pack is Deadpool focused, with the title character in it and Negasonic. Single carded figures will go for $24.99 in the US and £18.99 in the UK, the 2-packs will go for £49.99 in the US and £34.95 in the UK.
This is not over, there are two exclusive figures coming too! The first one is Cable from Deadpool 2, it’ll be a shared exclusive in Europe and a Walmart exclusive in the US. The second exclusive is Wolverine in a tank top, an Amazon exclusive and the most exciting news is – this one is already available for pre-order in the US!
Nerdist was the one who got the exclusive pictures of these figures.
These figures will all be available this Fall.
