20 years ago today, the first X-Men film hit theaters, kicking off a fresh decade for superhero dominance that had been missing since the Batman films of the mid-1990s. Even though the X-Men came courtesy of 20th Century Fox, the success of the franchise no doubt helped plant some seeds for the eventual growth of Marvel Studios.
The Marvel Legends X-Men 20th Anniversary series includes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Mystique (Rebecca Romijn), and a two-pack featuring Magneto (Michael Fassbender/Sir Ian McKellen) and Professor X (James McAvoy/Patrick Stewart) — all presented with Hasbro’s Photo Real facial technology that captures the likeness of each respective actor.
The two-pack features both young and old likenesses and each figure includes a host of accessories in addition to premium deco and articulation.
This wave also starts a new upgrade in packaging for the Marvel Legends Series, which puts it on-par with the recent update to Hasbro’s Star Wars: The Black Series and the recently released G.I. Joe: Classified Series.
All of these new figures are available for preorder via Hasbro Pulse and Entertainment Earth.
