A boy and dad passion for action figures.

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


For Easter my son received from friends of mine, two new X-Men action figures that are about 6" high. The figures are Colossus and Cyclops. After recently watching the live action films, these are two of my son favorite X-Men.

Colossus is a  Russian mutant, the character is a member of the X-Men, and is by far the physically strongest X-Man. Able to transform into a strong metallic form, even without his powers he still cuts a physically imposing figure standing at 6'6".

As for Cyclops (Sott Summers), he produces a powerful beam with great destructive power from his eyes referred to as an "optic blast". In uniform he wears a unique ruby quartz battle visor of which the lens runs from eye-to-eye giving him a one eyed appearance hence his namesake, Cyclops. Scott is the first X-Man recruited by Charles Xavier and as one of the original five X-Men.

Here they are with the recently bought 6" Mystique I got my son.
