POP! Iceman, which seems to be trying to combine as many designs as possible, including the ill-considered transparent version. At least it has a base!

Also ordered their first appearance Scarlet Witch, which looks to have the correct details from her original costume.

About the Sunfire... It looks cool, but didn't Sunfire have a belt during Cockrum/JB's era? Also, was it Don Heck that designed Sunfire? He drew the first appearance of the character, but it was in the middle of Neal Adams' run on X-MEN.

Ordered the Moebius Models kit of one of the EVA pods from 2001. Not much of a model builder, but this was too tempting. Itís HUGE. Almost as big as a basketball.

Note my specs at lower right for scale.

Ooooo!  Hadn't seen or heard about those... I may have to look into that.  Thanks for mentioning that, JB!

(EDIT:  $190+ ???  Yeah, no.)

Sorry to have led you astray, Shaun! ;-)

Full set of original X-Men, now. I'm thinking of spraying Iceman solid white.

Still no clue as to why Cyclops is the only one without a base.

******

It's the continued and seemingly endless disrespect for
Cyclops - he's the only Pop figure who falls down all the
time!

You know, I don't like Pop figures. But I have to admit, those X-Men look really, really good.

The detailing is really good, and kudos to them for actually giving Hank pronounced brow ridges instead of just using the same head as Warren.

Gotta say, the more I see of these Funko POP! 80th Anniversary Marvel figures, the more I like 'em. There's a "first appearance" Black Widow available for pre-order that has the costume details so perfect it could be used as reference.

I am going to have to be strong to resist these! Shelf space is already at a minimum!
