This post actually made me realize that there's no figure line based on the upcoming X-Men movie.  That's actually something of a big deal.

Was there one for X-Men: First Class either? I know there were X-Men: First Class/Wolverine: First Class Comic 2-packs released by Hasbro but they had nothing to do with the movie.

Maybe Hasbro doesn't view the X-Men movies as kid-friendly as the other Marvel stuff...

The standalone Wolverine movies had at least something in terms of figure offerings.  The first Wolverine movie's figure line was more wide ranging.  The second one, not so much.

Even the third X-Men movie, The Last Stand, didn't have much of a toy line.  But I do seem to recall a Juggernaut and Jean Grey from that movie that made their way into the Marvel Legends line.

Yeah - the figure line for X-Men Origins: Wolverine at least had a couple of figures (Logan, Sabertooth & Deadpool) that were based on the movie - but a lot of that line was comics-based. I also believe that was Hasbro's inaugural 3.75" Marvel line.

For The Wolverine - they had that pitiful line that were 100% comics based - none of them had any basis on the movie itself, it seemed like that line just tried to capitalize on the movie being in theaters.

I find it very odd that Thor: The Dark World can have a bigger toy line than ANY X-Men movie - maybe it's a "sign of the times" kind of thing or maybe it has something to do with licensing contracts and film rights and whatnot. Maybe Hasbro has the license to make figures from Disney/Marvel and Sony produced Marvel movies but not 20th Century Fox ones...

Dude, it's not Hasbro's job to pay attention to consumer demand or produce figures that you want.  It's their job to uhhh...what were we talking about?

Looks like there may be an (as of yet) unannounced wave of Legends on the way, with an X-Men theme:

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=252&itemid=17506

The scan shows Stryfe, Magneto, Cyclops (Marvel NOW), Storm (Marvel NOW) and an unmasked Wolverine, with a Build a Figure Jubilee (which was shown earlier with a different wave, that was never released).

Looks like these have been confirmed by Hasbro as a TRU Exclusive Wave.

Sort of fits in with what they did for Xmen: First Class - new X-men toys in stores for movie's release, but not necessarily based on the movie.

I can't wait for the SHIELD Movie set. I can't believe we're getting a Coulson!

I missed the exclusive as well, kinda bummed.  I really want that comic Star-Lord (although it is supposed to be coming next year as well in that 5 pack mentioned at SDCC), and the Medusa as well.  I have the earlier Black Bolt, so not a huge deal there, but the others would have been nice too.  I keep checking hoping that it will come back in stock, but I'm not hopeful.  Honestly, this was the only exclusive I was really after this year.  I thought about Jabba (although missed that too of course), but I'm ok with the regular version as well.

I picked up my first 6 inch figure today, Carnage from the ASM2 line. I had been debating buying some Marvel stuff to go along with the upcoming Batman: TAS line and finally found a Carnage on the pegs. I just hope this doesn't avalanche into me buying a bunch of the 6 inch Star Wars stuff.
