XM Studios Leads The X-Men To Victory With 2 New Professor X 1/4 Scale Statues!Jose Lopez
Considering how popular and successful the X-Men franchise has been over the decades, its a bit surprising that the team’s founder, Professor Charles Xavier, doesn’t get more attention in the collectibles department. XM Studios aims to remedy that oversight with not one, but two new statues that will make any X-Men fan ecstatic.
Ask any hardcore X-Fan like myself and they’d be hard pressed to choose between which version of Professor X is more iconic: the distinguished gentleman in a three-piece suit in his standard wheelchair with an “X” on each wheel or the Professor in a jumpsuit, sitting in his yellow hoverchair. Lucky for me, XM isn’t making me choose and is offering both looks as statues, labeled Version A and Version B, complete with unique interchangeable accessories for each.
I know what you’re thinking. “This is the part where he gushes about display options again.” Yeah, you’re right, but I’ll make it brief. Having the extra arms and portraits, giving collectors a chance to change the mood of either statue depending on our whims, is so much fun and I love when companies give us the chance. Professor X using his telepathic powers or quietly sitting in his chair? I’m in! Okay, I’m done. Happy?
While I really enjoy the contemplative “Version A” Xavier in his classic wheelchair, pondering the helmet of his dear frenemy Magneto, I have to say that I find the “Version B” in his illuminated hoverchair a bit more dynamic. I was introduced to the X-Men in the late 1980s, so it wasn’t too long until the good Professor was zipping around in that hi-tech thing in the 90s. I would, however, be lying if I said I didn’t want both.
