Holy s*** dude, that's a Gambit shrine!  :gambit:


5 shelves of Gambit goodness. And with Gambit off the banned list, more on the way. I just pre-ordered the new Gambit pin today...the latest pre-order on a long list. Most excited for the Mezco figure.

I must've missed this comment...
Before Iron Man came out he was the most hated character in Marvel Comics (Civil War era). I can name you 10 X-Men characters that had a larger fan base than Stark.
This is what I always point out whenever someone tries to pull the "Nobody knows who Gambit is/wants a Gambit movie" card. No one - literally not one single person - was asking for an Iron Man movie before it was released. Gambit has way more fans than Iron Man did before his movies. And also has more going for him as a character in general. If Iron Man and Ant Man can have successful movies, why can't Gambit who is arguably a way more interesting character?

Not sure I have anything to share...


Amazing collection!  I love it!  So many cool Gambit items, many of which I have never seen before.  Do you have another picture that shows the full bottom shelf? 


I actually just recently took some pictures of some of my Gambit collection that I set up temporarily.  I took the pictures to post on the Gambit and Rogue thread on CBR, so they also pretty heavily feature Rogue, but anyway I will be sure to post them here and there tomorrow(had a long day and am too tired to do it tonight).

This. Gambit was more popular than any of the Avengers characters save maybe the Hulk pre-MCU. It pisses normies off, but, Iron Man was a C-list character before RD Jr. made the character a juggernaut.

As promised, here are some pictures of my collection.  I also posted this on the Gambit and Rogue thread on CBR with a couple additional images(mostly single X-Men issues with Rogue and Gambit content) if anyone wants to check out those posts.


Anyway here we go -

And a few more-











Well There is some of my collection.  Didn't include any issues from Gambit's later runs after the first solo which I regret, but I am glad I finally got around to taking some pictures of my collection and sharing the pictures with others.

Thanks, Purplevit!  And yeah I love that Uncanny X-Men 350!  Probably one of my favorite comics that I own.

Great collections. I have a nice little Gambit collection but I still haven't set up a display for it. Definitely something I eventually want to do though.


But yeah, whenever people say things like Gambit's not well known enough for his own movie or he couldn't hold his own movie or nobody is asking for a Gambit movie, it drives me nuts. All of those statements are false or irrelevant. As has been stated already, if Guardians and Ant Man can be hit movies than Gambit is a no-brainer. People who say Gambit couldn't hold his own movie just don't know anything about the character. Probably just saw a few episodes of the animated show. The "nobody is asking for" comment is possibly the dumbest. Guess what, nobody asked for Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Guardians, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Star Wars, The Godfather, Shawshank Redemption, and on and on and on. The dumbest argument made about any movie. It's not about what people ask for, it's about making a great film that brings in audiences.

When I hear "no one is asking for" or "everyone is demanding" or "everyone is talking about", I take it to mean some self important Buzzfeed or Screenrant writer and their echo chamber buddies on Twitter. Example: read an article claiming fans have been "demanding" Kate Bishop as Hawkeye for years. Uhm...no, they haven't been. Anyone. Anywhere. Ever.

Absolutely. Or "fans have been asking for a Kitty Pryde movie". Huh? :idiot2:


But the "nobody is asking for this" argument that you constantly hear from comment sections drives me nuts.
