The only charcter that's actually in the first class (first 5) of Prof. X students.

As an Avenger too... so he join the figure assembly....

Fassbender as Magneto or GTFO!

Centrocal
05-30-2011, 03:37 AM
Boring characters, boring costumes and no accessories :pfft: These figures will look like Jill Valentine ( Battle suit ver) except they wont have any guns and will be more expensive

The only ones that are vaguely appealing are Magneto Beast and Mystique. Everyone else is too generic looking.

They won't bother with White Queen. Would you buy a female true type in a bra, skirt and boots for $160 :cuckoo: not worth the price.

The Entity

If they make this Magneto, then it could be quite an awesome looking figure:

I hope this suit actually features a lot in the film, and isn't just an epilogue like scene leading into the Ian Mckellen magneto. (unless that means we get a figure of that :D)

Firebird
05-30-2011, 03:45 AM
I maybe passing on this line, but I will just have to wait and see what HT is going to offer.

I hope HT continues with the figures they have already promised us. Like continuing with the Expendables, Avatar and serval other lines. :pray:

Theokan
05-30-2011, 04:11 AM
Nice!

I'm interested in anyone other than young Prof X and Havok, those two look super lame... I bet that guy who plays Havok really dances like that at clubs, lol!!! :rotfl (watch the preview if you don't know what I mean)

the others seem alright by me... beast, magneto, and mystique look the best in this movie.

05-30-2011, 04:17 AM
They had like 3 other xmen movies to make a line- cyclops, halle berre as storm, rebecca what's her name as mystique, patrick stewart as prof x in the chair with a cerebro helmet, nightcrawler, JUGGERNAUT, but instead we get this lot.

Wallets of the world breathe a collective sigh of relief.

Do you know how much it would have cost HT to license the likenesses of Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Halle Barry, Rebecca Romijn, Famke Janssen etc as compared to these relatively unknown actors in this xmen installment??

05-30-2011, 05:03 AM
Pass. The only figure I'd even be remotely interested in getting would be Emma but the likeness would REALLY have to wow me before I even consider it.

Can't be any more than Hugh Jackman. Or Arnold. Or Christian Bale. Or Robert Downey. Or the Resident Evil chick. Or Johnny Depp....

RaZaTrOn
05-30-2011, 05:13 AM
Well apparently there is a Wolverine cameo in First Class..... :wink1:



Anyway i think that this being the new X-men status quo then it was more beneficial for them to buy this line for the moment. With a potential sequel it means that more and more people will be interested in this line.

For me I too agree that a lot of the designs aren't appealing enough to have on a shelf but i think that the cost of certain figures won't be as expensive (Spider-man) because of the lack of accessories that we'd get with them.

If this line comes to be I would get a few depending on there prototypes.

Magneto
Beast

Other potential figures are:

Angel (the wings would look nice)
Banshee
Havok
Mystique
Professor X (w/ Wheelchair maybe?)
Moria MacTaggert
Sebastian Shaw
White Queen (maybe interested if cheap)
Riptide
Darwin (one of the more interesting figures if they get different skins for him)
+
Azazel (again interesting due to looks)

Magneto is the only one I would care. they should have started with Cyclops and Professor X from the 1st X-Men movie.

Marcus Wright
05-30-2011, 07:06 AM
They would rather make character from the first 3 movies, which I might have bought.

Easy pass.:wave

Darkseed
05-30-2011, 07:12 AM
I am not ruling out this film until I watch it. I think the classic blue / yellow x suits would be awesome on display. With HT track record, I am sure this license will be something unexpected.

JAROTO
05-30-2011, 07:20 AM

:lecture I haven't seen the film to have an opinion on it or characters however, the teasers unveiled potential cool costume designs.

Buttmunch
05-30-2011, 07:46 AM
I'm torn on this. Without seeing the film, I'm not sure this was the best move as the film is basically full of unknowns and Kevin Bacon. These wouldn't display with the other Marvel figures well because of the timeline. So they would need to be together to look right, and given HT's track record, you won't get a full team. Heck, they'll probably do something stupid like give us Prof X and Mystique and then the line will end. :lol

Plus these figures make me worried we won't see a Stewart Prof. X or McKellen Magneto anytime soon, and those are the ones I really want.

hairlesswookiee
05-30-2011, 08:23 AM
I will say that I"m interested, but that doesn't mean I have the $$ to buy them. I will get the Magneto, but I doubt I'll try to be a completist with this line

The Mike
05-30-2011, 08:23 AM
This explains a lot. HT had announced that they had the full X-Men Trilogy license last year. We didn't see a thing from it and it was probably because they were ramping up for this. Odds are that you'll see Fassbender Magneto and McAvoy Xavier in their First Class Blue and Yellow suits first. If the line continues you might get more and some of these would be very well done, imagine an Azrael? of a Furred Beast similar to the POTA figures? Mystique?

Also we don't know how this film will continue, we know by the end we'll get Magneto in standard comic look (which would be/will be a separate release I'm sure) and Charles bald in a wheelchair by the end.

From what I've read the Wolverine cameo won't really garner any figures, hell you could use the Origins figure and pull it off but I am excited for the odds of at least getting a Fassbender Magneto. HT won't go full team, they never have I don't see this being any different.

Worst case you get Charles and Erik. If there is a second wave I have a feeling you'll get Beast and Mystique in their First Class uniforms as well.

meanstreak
05-30-2011, 08:30 AM
I think we'll only get Erik and Charles, which I'm OK with cause I'd most likely only buy Erik.

Glad they got the license, been reading nothing but great reviews for the films.

Not too excited. The only figure I'd be tempted by is Magneto. But I agree, there are figures from the first three movies I'd definitely be into getting.

ali032373
05-30-2011, 09:19 AM
what the world let's you get away with by being a blonde female. She looks pretty similar to one of the triad female body figures made last year. Just buy this figure and put it in one of those tacky leather outfits on ebay. At least in the above pic there's nothing really exciting about the prospect of an Emma Frost figure.

I'm going in with fairly low expectations. I expect to walk away enjoying it enough to buy it on blu but I figure this will be an average flick.

KBA
05-30-2011, 10:44 AM
Excited to see the movie. I think it will be the best out of the Marvel movies this year, but I probably won't be wanting figures. I find the more the prices of figures rises, the more I just want must-haves from past fan favorite movies that we have special connections to where the juice is worth the squeeze. We've got Reeve, now get Starwars cranking out, HT :rock

hunnipot85
05-30-2011, 12:35 PM
I think we'll get Magneto and Xavier in the yellow/blue costume. Magneto will come with his helmet and xavier may come with his cerebro helmet?

If we get an Emma Frost (:pray:) than she'll probably be in her white jumpsuit, although they could potentially make her in her bra/skirt/fur cape outfit if they give her rubber arms and a rubber torso. Mystique would be an awesome figure too if they made her, but if she's in her yellow/blue costume I bet we can't make her look screen accurate naked.

Even if this film was complete crap (which reviews seem to point otherwise) a 1:6 Beast done like the POTA figures would be worth the license alone!

I am getting more interested in this movie as the early reviews keep pouring in with praise. . .but the character designs do very little for me. I would be interested the generic yellow and blue outfits if we got Psyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast, and Marvel Girl. But Beast is the only one of the group in this film that was an OG X-Man of course, and he's gonna be furry (which he wasn't until much later in the comics). Prof. X is a pretty boy with hair, so no interest there for me. The guy playing Mags was great in Inglorious Basterds, but apart from the helmet, he's probably gonna be wearing the generic blue and yellow suit (or maybe a business suit), so that's another figure I'm not gonna be very interested in. I don't care for the other characters much. This movie's success isn't gonna play a role here.

The X1, X2, and X3 figures are something I'll have much more of an interest in.

I have been interested since this was first announced but the truth is that I am quite surprised it is receiving so much praise lately.

I don't know, I don't want to keep my expectations too high, but if the movie is actually as good as as it is being suggested, this might get to be popular after all.

Why is everyone so quick to say 'pass'?

...No one has seen the movie or even seen protos of what HT is set to produce. Known character models or not why the pre-bashing of an unveiled product (film and figures)? At least wait until you see the film before you make your final judgements, as it may change your overall interest; its happened a many of times.

Buttmunch
05-30-2011, 07:10 PM
I dunno. I think McKellen's scene with the guns is more impressive. :dunno

I'd definatley say Mags is the obvious choice here. But given HT's track record with the X-men prequels, we will get 1 figure :lol

Wolverine and Sabertooth were the obvious choices from Wolverine, but we only got Logan. So not even Charles and Magneto are a given really.

Like I said earlier--good actor based on what little I've seen. But he doesn't look like Magneto with the blue/yellow suit and silver helmet IMO. I don't buy figures simply because they were from good movies. I want my Marvel characters to look reasonably iconic. Wolverine: Origins is a crap movie, but he looks like Logan from the comics. Ghost Rider was an even crappier movie, but figure looks like he looks in the comics. Thor doesn't look exactly like the comic version, but close enough for a movie incarnation.

Some of MacKellen's looks would be much more acceptable on my shelf. This character is recognizable as Magneto because of the helmet.

Buttmunch
05-30-2011, 07:57 PM
Agreed Kara. I feel the exact same way. I collect most of the Marvel film figures because they are the best figures of the characters available in this scale. If they look enough like their comic versions, even better.

Boba Ben
05-30-2011, 08:09 PM
It seems likely that we'll get a more traditional looking Magneto getup near or at the end of the movie based off of pics floating around the interwebs from the trailer. If they do that figure, I'd be pretty tempted to buy it.

Well HT does have the original Trilogy license, they announced it at the same time as Blade and Spidey. I would imagine that we haven't seen those figures because they were preparing for this. As soon as the FC figures are out whatever they may be I'm sure we'll get the originals probably starting with a Jackman Wolverine since the majority of the figure is done with a subtle retooling.

With Watchmen, my favorite character wasn't released. I'm afraid of Loki being the same way when it comes to the Thor license.

And the horror of it all if they don't release Fassbender's Magneto..... *shudders*

I'm tired of my favorites not being made, especially since they're so damn important in the actual movies! It's not like any of the above are bit players in the films!

I would be happy with Magneto and Xavier from First Class, but I'm in for the whole line, whoever that turns out to be. Just please give me my Magneto, Hot Toys. It's sad that I'm so excited for this, but so nervous at the same time.

Hell, after four films staring him they still have yet to get Wolverine right.

I want my X-men to be from the comics and until that happens I don't really have much interest.

Beast fits the profile, and maybe Magneto but I could probably pass on "M".

I'm guessing we'll get a Magneto and an Emma and HT's will quit. We haven't even seen Cap so far and considering the licenses they showed at the Expo that we haven't seen figures from yet plus all the films coming out in the next year I doubt they make more than that.

My two cents....

If they make this Magneto, then it could be quite an awesome looking figure:

http://www.flix66.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/X-Men-First-Class-Magneto.jpg

Well, I just saw the film:

And now I can say that I definitely like the blue/yellow flight suit better than this. From behind it looks awesome, the front... not so much IMO.
The suit looks very bland and the helmet isn't the same as the grey one, but slightly modified with purple and some extra ornament or something. It works in the comic... not so much on screen IMO.

Besides a Magneto, I'd love to see Charles, he was awesome as well. Furthermore I could see them make Mystique, Azazel and Beast. Maybe Emma Frost...

I'd actually love to see a Moira figure wearing:

The tactical gear from the end, with the underwear from the beginning underneath that!

Yeah I'm not really seeing the point of this license. For the most part, none of the characters really have memorable appearances that would make them worthwhile to have a figure of. It just seems like a waste. Would have been better to just take the designs from the previous X-Men movies. Even if the third one was a trainwreck, the original trinity still had excellent designs and would make wonderful figures. Having Wolverine stand alone is no fun.

While I always thought they should've made a couple more X-Men figures from the original set of films, I can't wait for this.

I don't collect based on "cool" - I collect based on character and property. I have to be a fan of something to buy it. I would find buying something just because it's "cool" more of a waste of my money - characters I'm less passionate about almost always end up getting sold.

The future releases for the X-Men license should be interesting. Knowing HT they aren't going full steam into them so I have a feeling some will be cherry picked. You might get Cyclops from X1 but not from the other films since the changes are minimal. Jean on the other hand would most likely come from X3 which means we may never get her in her proper X-Uniform. It'll be an interesting mix of looks on the shelf by the time they get through all three.

Dr.Mirakle32

This film is supposed to kick off a new Trilogy. By the positive reviews I would imagine it's happening so it makes complete sense for them to be making figures at the ground level.

Have you seen the film?

I was going to ask the same question. Also, these suits look way better than the previous black X suits. They were so gay.

I just returned from the film. Marvel is 2 for 2.....a very, very solid effort. :clap

In terms of HT figures Magneto in classic blue and yellow is a MUST. The comic version of the suit was meh. Xavier would be really nice, anyone else would be a bonus.

The color was too vibrant and it looked like a 1970's leisure suit modified of course with pockets in the front. I wasn't impressed

I totally agree with you! From behind the suit looked awesome, with the cape and all, but when we saw the front I was like: "that's it?"
It looked kinda lame, plus the helmet looked too comiclike for the film. Not impressed either.

Yeah... I think the helmet especially bothered me. Fassbender was awesome throughout, but that helmet sort of toned it down for me. He looked way more bad ass in his civilian clothes.

I remember that bar scene... if he was in his magneto outfit during that scene, it wouldn't have carried that same killer vibe. Not that he even had the costume at the time of course, just using it as an example.

I agree completely!

The look of the final costume was too lame for a character as awesome as his!

I actually hope well get civilian clothes and the grey helmet along with the yellow-blue flightsuit on the figure! :rock

I wonder when the first announcement will be. I would image whoever is first comes in at a reasonable price. Not a lot of accessories unless you go 2 in 1 (civilian and flight suit).

I never understand why people complain that HT doesn't finish lines. Does money grow on your trees? :lol

If they don't make it, less temptation. I'm OK with that. :lecture

I know all about money not growing on trees - the thing is, I limit my collecting to licenses I'm passionate about - I don't just buy whatever HT or SSC puts out. They make really cool figures, but as of right now I only own a handful. Why? Because they have many licenses I'm not passionate enough about to justify the expense.

I have to be a passionate fan of the franchise. And if I am, then I like to collect multiple characters from that franchise to display together. If I'm passionate about it, I want the main characters.

Okay, that's probably going a bit far.. don't get your hopes up! TDK had a touch more complexity with a stronger script, but 1st Class still a fine comic book movie.

I'd say watching it without any of those kinds of comparisons in mind will make it more enjoyable.

Origins takes place in the late 60s early 70s, I think this new movie should set up a whole new line of movies and just forget the others, I liked the William Stryker nod too, but wolves would still have his bone claws in this new movie

Well, since Wolverine ties in with the Three Mile Island incident which happened in 1979, and this one ties in with the Cuban Missile Crisis, I'd say this takes place before Wolverine.

I'm actually thinking that they kept the Origins film out of the continuity completely. Xavier still walks in Origins if I'm not mistaken which would be impossible given the events from First Class.

Dont remember him walking, pretty sure he was in his wheel chair, plus in this movie it shows cyclops, storm and Jean non of which should be DNA yet, so I think the other movies are out the window

Pass. The only figure I'd even be remotely interested in getting would be Emma but the likeness would REALLY have to wow me before I even consider it.

I'm gonna have to revise my earlier statement. After watching the XM:FC I would definitely contemplate getting an Emma Frost and Magneto figures done by HT especially if Magneto has his outfit from the end of the movie.

I think the X-Men movies are using the same skewed time line we see in the comics that decades are only a couple of years. The Marvel Universe moves faster that ours.

i'm more concerned how this film disregards the opening scent in X-M<en 3. Whether Bryan Singer was involved in x3 and XOW or not, as a franchise I 'm a bit bothered by their obvious disregarding of the films Singer didn't have a hand in.

There cinematic contradictions has got many people bothered. X3 does
contradict First Class as do Origins. People want to say that only X1 and
X2 count as far as continuity is concerned except for the fact that X3 ties directly into X2 whether they want to acknowledge it or not.

This is the thing. Singer has eluded to but been smart enough to not outright say that this ignores X3. Everyone involved with X-Men at Fox has said that everything will ignore X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The Wolverine won't tie or even mention it Darren Aronofsky and Hugh Jackman admitted it. Singer has said it isn't a prequel but a new timeline but if all the net spoilers have said he ties it well into his own films. The best way to figure this out is look at his dealings with Superman. He ignored the last two Superman films with his Returns because he felt it was best. He ignores the last two X-Men films with his produced FC for the same reason I'm sure. They real question is if this goes three films like they've been saying whether they'll be tempted to directly tie to X1.

I enjoyed this film a lot! It was a good film, parts were a little slow and characters not quite as well developed as they could be. Dark Knight level? Get over yourselves people not even close. Great superhero movie? Absolutely. Great movie? I'd say very good movie!

The fanboy inside of me though misses the x-Men I love. Jean, Scott, Storm, Rogue, Gambit, Logan.

I think that's what really made me walk away from this feeling like I just didn't see an X-Men film.

I liked the plot, acting, story. I liked Magnus and Charles a lot and besides the bad-assness of Magnus there was no one who really seemed all that cool to me and to be honest it bugged me a bit. Memorable characters is what it lacked I think. Other than Magneto no one owned that marketability IMO. No Batman, No Wolverine, no Joker or Two Face. The movie needed those characters with that coolness factor.

And having a bald charles would have settled that little fanboy inside of me. Really liked McAvoy;s portrayal though! But Patrick Stewart really is the Prof so you can't really replicate that, i can see why they wanted to go in another direction.

06-04-2011, 09:51 AM
As for who to make to make the line feel "complete" Who is really needed other than Charles and Magnus? the Alpha and Omega of the X-Men. Hot Toys needs to make both o those right off the bat and call it a day. no one else would be figure worthy anyways.

I think to fully enjoy the film you gotta put away your inner fanboy, and just enjoy the flick. The fact that there was no Wolverine or Cyclops was refreshing, and I am a huge wolverine fan. This movie didn't need a commercial character to piggy back on, it rocks the way it is.


Hot Toys wise besides Erik and Charles in flight suits, I could see them doin Mystique with extra Raven HS.
