Next year, the X-Men are returning to a more classic style in the pages of Marvel Comics as a result of the ResurrXion storyline, with the Blue and Gold X-Men team designations coming back, and a more old school approach to the character line-ups and team dynamics. Also set to celebrate the classic mutant era returning are the folks at Funko, who are releasing a new line of Classic X-Men collectibles. The Classic X-Men are represented across several different product lines, including Pop!, Dorbz, and Mystery Minis.
Thanks to the folks at ComicBook.com, we’ve learned that among the old school X-Men characters included in the Pop! Vinyls line (most of which are from the comic books’ heyday in the early ’90s) are Cable, Archangel, and Psylocke, wearing their Jim Lee era costumes. From the ’80s era, we’ve got Storm in her mohawk and leather look. Also Quicksilver in his original costume and Sabretooth, sporting another Jim Lee designed early ’90s look.
Funko will also be releasing Cyclops, Storm, Psylocke, and Sabretooth, Dark Phoenix and Emma Frost in their 3-inch Dorbz line of figures. Emma Frost will have a diamond chase variant, and there will be also be a Walmart exclusive Cable. Another Walmart exclusive will be the Dorbz Ridez, featuring Beast driving the team’s primary mode of transportation, the Blackbird. On top of all this, there will be a new 1-1/4-inch-tall Magneto Pop! Pocket Keychain. You can see images of each of the new Classic X-Men Funko products in our gallery below.
