Now the design for these two is based on the younger Charles and Eric. I prefer the older generation but not to worry. They gave you head options for those too! Just that Magneto’s cape is so heavy that he won’t be able to stand straight with it. If you ditch the cape, he stands fine and good so may be you want to go find yourself a custom cape for this figure.
Take that James McAvoy head and have this legendary head on!
Thank you, Deadpool. I mean James McAvoy was awesome as the Beast in the movie Split but no one and I quote, NO ONE can do better than Patrick Steward when it comes to Professor X. And I am sure I am not a minority when it comes to this. He’s simply made for this role. Like RDJ and Hugh Jackman. But there is a time that a new actor must replace the old. I hope the next Professor X would do great.
Yeeeees, and that applies to Magneto too! Actually, I don’t mind Michael Fassbender take on the MCU version Magneto. And oh please don’t give me the SJW stupid nonsense of race bending Magneto and Professor X. It’s frankly disgusting af. If you want a kick-ass character with a particular race and gender, stop robbing from an existing character with an existing fanbase and go make a new one.
Oh well, whatever it is, it does not change the fact that Wolverine wants to kill Magneto.
Having Charles and Logan together like this bring tears to my eyes. Good old time. Did you know that Hugh Jackman Wolverine and Tobey Spider-Man was supposed to crossover? Yup. But thanks to troll queen Amy Pascal, it was dropped? Yea, sad that we didn’t get those two legendary characters to unite. Who’s Amy? She’s the Kathleen Kennedy of Sony who was also responsible to make Sam Ramie Spider-Man 3 a shit bomb. A serious pain in the ass but good that she’s axed.
What!? I didn’t talk much about the figure themselves? Fine yes. Professor X’s articulation is decent. No ab crunch due to his vest but his knee and elbow and such has a decent articulation (that said he’ll be on the chair most of the time). Magneto’s articulation totally sucks. I mean Hasbro probably didn’t want to spend time and energy on a new sculpt that they can’t milk from so they did the minimal work and tossed it. That’s how it feels. And because I only care about the original Ian Magneto and this body isn’t that, I will simply go make myself a custom Magneto anyway. In short, I got these two for the Patrick and Ian head sculpt.
Would I suggest this set? Actually, not much. Unless you didn’t get the Logan and Professor X set, you are kind of getting a duplicate figure here. But if you love the younger Professor and Magneto, or if you just want to get the Ian and Patrick’s head like myself, then it’s a jump on set for sure. And I recall it’s selling on Amazon for a discount right now. Cheers.
