For ’90s toy and comic fans, Toy Biz’s X-Men action figure line and its various spinoffs were a godsend. Bringing to plastic a vast range of characters who had never seen toy form before, and including a playable action feature on most, it was many kids’ introduction to characters like Deadpool and Apocalypse before the animated series made them even more ubiquitous. Toy Biz’s Marvel figures eventually spawned Marvel Legends, a line Hasbro would take over to great success. Now, in the latest acknowledgement of the line’s roots, Hasbro announces an Apocalypse figure on a Toy Biz-style card, but updated with modern sculpting and articulation.

Featuring a throwback color scheme, he doesn’t quite duplicate the “growing” action feature of Toy Biz’s original. However, he does have an upsized, build-a-figure scale body. And he even has an “action feature” of sorts — switch out his hand for a triple blaster with detachable fire effects. Plus two heads, with mouth open or closed.
The mutant villain’s extra size means extra price. Pick him up at most online retailers for $38.99. As always, we recommend our affiliate partners at Entertainment Earth, but most similar outlets will also have him for preorder. (Superhero Hype earns fees from purchases made through Entertainment Earth links.) Expect En Sabah Nur to arrive in September.
