Nightcrawler – Giant Size X-Men #1
Series: X-Men; Giant Size X-Men Box Set
Comments: Giant Size X-Men #1 was a 1975 comic where Professor X had to throw together an All New! team of X-Men to save the original X-Men from a mutant island. In 1995 Toy Biz released a box set of figures to commemorate the 20th anniversary of this issue’s release. This Nightcrawler figure was included in this box set. Also included in this set are Storm, Banshee, Thunderbird, Colossus and Banshee. The set as a whole is awesome, and provides an example of how good ToyBiz’s releases could be.
As a figure, Nightcrawler is pretty cool. Not only does he have better than average articulation for his time, he also has a bendy tail. There’s not much to critique really, the figure looks like Nightcrawler and has a bendy tail. What more could someone want?
