As I’ve mentioned several times, I was a DC comics fan growing up, but also loved the Marvel cartoons, action figures and trading cards. Back in the 90s there were plenty to be had and I gobbled them up, mainly focusing on the Spider-Man and X-Men/X-Force figures (yup, there’s a whole line of X-Force toys not to mention Generation X, X-Men 2099 and the like). While I came to the X-Men line a bit later than the toys shown in this commercial, I did manage to get my paws on that Wolverine which comes with a gun that looks like a video camera.
Better yet? This wave which includes arguably the most popular X-Man of all time along with one of the original team members, two longtime villains…and Forge. That still cracks me up. I knew nothing about that character, but I still love the look, which is what wound up drawing me in as a toy collector for the better part of a decade.
