X-Men Series 2 - 1992



The second assortment of figures was a large one, and contained many new characters. This series contains 3 Wolverines, which at least one Wolverine per series would be the trend. Interestingly, a fourth Wolverine was in this series, but it was a modification of two of the Wolverines in this series. This also happens to be the largest assortment of figures put out by Toybiz. A Havok figure in his black outfit was originally planned to be included, but was dropped. You can still see his face on the front of the packages. No prototypes were ever made. A black Havok was later made as a Toyfare Exclusive. This wave was released in 2 assortments, but I'm not sure who came in which assortment.

Banshee


Banshee would not see a new figure until the Generation X series. This figure was interesting because it had a whistle built into his body to mimic his sonic screaming power he had in the comics. This whistle did stick out the back of the figure quite a bit and there was a hole in the middle of the front of the figure. The face on this is a very good likeness, although the figure itself is kind of scrawny. The arms would be moved out to spread his cape and make it look like he is flying.

Figure ability: Whistling action - whistle built into chest
Accessories: None

Forge


Forge was one of the more minor X-Men and this would be the only figure he ever got. The figure itself is pretty good though a bit small compared to the newer ones that came out later on. His leg and arm had clear blue plastic with parts inside to show that he was cybernetic. There were actually two versions of him, with the only difference being the color of his gun holster. One version was brown, while the other was yellow. He had a quick draw action, which was neat, but the gun was permanently glued into his hand, so it couldn't be removed.

Figure ability: Quick draw action
Accessories: None

Forge


This variant of Forge is the exact same but with a brown holster instead of yellow. This variant would be the more rare of the two.

Figure ability: Quick Draw Action
Accessories: None

Gambit


This first Gambit figure was pretty cool. The kicking action worked pretty well, but was easily broken. Once it did break Gambit couldn't stand up, as his leg was always in the up position. His trench coat was made of plastic and looked kind of odd, but was a good attempt. It could be removed with some effort, but he looked kind of odd since his collar was part of the figure and could not come off. When this figure was being designed, the designers had thought about making him in his yellow and blue X-Men outfit similar to the outfit that Forge, Banshee, and Wolverine III had. They instead went with his normal outfit.

Figure ability: Kicking action
Accessories: Staff, Coat

Havok


This is the plans for the unproduced Havok figure. This is his first black outfit, but the figure was dropped in the planning stages for some reason. You can still see his face featured on the front of the other figures packages in the line.

Figure ability: None
Accessories: None

Iceman


The first Iceman figure was made from clear white plastic to give him an icy appearance. There were actually two versions of this figure. The original one had paint on him that when you put him in the freezer, icicles would show up on his body. The stopped using this idea though, because the plastics and paints involved made the figure very brittle when he was cold. The second version is simply clear plastic with no color changing action. How his icesled power worked was there was a rectangle hole that you put Iceman's feet in. You filled the small rectangle up with water and put him in the freezer. When the water froze, you took Iceman off the sled and his feet would be in a small block of ice. You could slide him around on the floor this way.

Figure ability: Ice sled action
Accessories: Ice sled

Magneto II


The new remolded Magneto was much better than the previous version. The helmet is non-removable this time, but it looks much better. The only complaint I had was that his feet are very close together, which makes it hard for him to stand up sometimes. The sparking action makes his chest light up by a lever in his back. In order to move the lever the cape has to be removed. This figure would not be improved upon for a while as it is re-released several times. This is also the only Magneto with a non-removable helmet.

Figure ability: Sparking action
Accessories: Gun, Cape

Mr. Sinister


There are actually two versions of this figure - one with a goatee and one without. The figure also featured light up eyes and chest and instructions on how to change the battery. This figure would be re-released several times. Like the Magneto figure the cape would be removable.

Figure ability: Light up eyes and chest
Accessories: Cape

Mr. Sinister


This is the same as the original release except with a goatee

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Cape

Sabretooth


Sabretooth's first figure was a bit small but was still a good likeness of his original costume. His chest panel can flip between normal costume and normal costume with claw marks to show some battle damage. Flipping the panel would make it look like he healed himself. This figure also had glow in the dark eyes and some sort of claw weapon.

Figure ability: Healing action, glow in the dark eyes
Accessories: Claw

Sauron


Sauron's figure ability is very similar to Wolverine's in that he has a place on the back to put you thumb and make him twist from side to side. This figure also has a mouth that can be opened, as well as ball joints on his arms for more articulation. This is the most common figure of the series.

Figure ability: Twisting wing attack
Accessories: Club

Weapon X Wolverine


This Wolverine would be the first to have special variant figures. The variants mostly included different color wires and cables that were on his body. The thing I liked most about this figure is how they did the claws. The claws are out permanently, no retractable mechanism. The helmet is also removable though it is attached to his body via the cables.

Figure ability: Hi tech helmet
Accessories: Helmet and power cables

Weapon X Wolverine


This was the repaint that was released only at Kay-bee toys. The only difference is that he has red cables.

Figure ability: Hi tech helmet
Accessories: Helmet and power cables

Wolverine 2.5


This Wolverine was actually released as Wolverine III, but it uses the top half of a Wolverine III and the bottom half of a Wolverine II. One of stranger figures.

Figure ability: Snap out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun

Wolverine II


This Wolverine is of him in his original costume when he joined the X-Men in Giant Size X-Men #1. You can tell it's of his original yellow costume since there is no X symbol on his belt. This figure itself would be reused several times for other Wolverine variants. I'm really not sure why it came with a handgun though. The claws on this figure could be pushed into his forearms, but they would not stay by themselves and they could not go completely into his arms. The figure also has twisting action - a place to put you thumb on his back to twist him from side to side to make him slash his claws.

Figure ability: Pop out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun


View figure gallery

Wolverine III


Another Wolverine whose body and head will be reused several times. This figure is a lot like the Wolverine II that was also in this series having both the same figure abilities and accessories. This figure is how Wolverine looked around Uncanny X-Men #275. Interestingly, Wolverine in this costume would not be remade but would a similar one would be released in a set in 1999.

Figure ability: Snap out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun

Return to X-Men
