I got the blue and yellow 10" Gambit heading my way in the mail. I also snagged both of those other board games at the same time I got the original one.

Just got the 90's Gambit wallet new in the package yesterday.

Every time I think I have everything, I find something new. I THINK the only two I still need is the long haired Diamond Select variant and the Eagle Moss Lead Figure.

Are there any other collectibles (along the lines of the pins, wallet, and minted coin) that I should be looking for?
I'm just an action figure collector, so I don't have the same knowledge about other collectables that I do with figures. I know there are a couple Funko Pops if that's your thing? Definitely not for me, but I know they are out there.

Hope you already got your Mafex Gambit pre-ordered because most online retailers have sold thru already.

Then there's this odd thing. It is articulated, but just too weird for me.

There are a few statues by Sideshow, Angry Monkey, XM Studios and Iron studios.

An old premium format statue from sideshow.

And this upcoming 1/6th scale articulated Gambit coming from Sideshow (Head is weird. Ears stick out. Looks goofy).

Probably a whole lot more like busts, minimates, and other such collectibles.

Is there any trustworthy site that still has the Medicom figure for pre-order? I'm looking around and I'm not sure which sites are reputable.

Thats a tough one. I've been thinking about it and I don't know. I bought from Ebay often, never tried the ICollector site and Mercari is interesting but not sure about it.

Does Medicom have their own site?

I pre-ordered Gambit, Magneto, and Psylocke Revoltechs from this site and had no issues. The Gambit I got was missing an eyeball in one of his alternate faces and his flight stand broke. They replaced both of those  accessories but you have to get at them within a week of receiving the order for any defects. So I always thoroughly inspect every item, move every joint and just make sure that there is nothing wrong or that could potentially go wrong when I 1st get them.

Heres a site where it's still available. Never ordered with them, though, but they are US based import company like most of the sites of pre-ordered from.

Have you gotten the Target exclusive Marvel legends retro Gambit figure yet?

Just picked them up from my local Target on Sunday. They are so cool!




And next to my original Gambit I bought around 1993-4




Wish I would have bought an extra Rogue back in the day to keep MOC too. Maybe I can find one on ebay for a decent price. Would love to display both together.

Obligatory action shot:

Here's a review of the figure by a massive Gambit fan and native of New Orleans.

Lets show him some love and give him some views and subscriptions if you all would.

These were on Disney’s website. Looks like just cheap plastic toys for kids who liked TAS on Disney (with the new uniforms...). Don’t think they count as collectibles, so don’t know if you want them or not.

It's actually interesting that they put these put. But they're so cheap I don't see them being a big deal. If they wanted money they should've released actual figures. I hate Storm with the mohawk by the way.

Kit bashed my new Gambit with my old. I had already swapped the arms out and given him a cloth coat, but now I exchanged the hair, boots and chest plate from the new Gambit, and painted his belt to match the silverish blue of the new boots and chestplate lining. Pretty happy with how he's turned out. Hope you all enjoy.
Made him a second staff gripping hand, plus 2 fists and gave him the Marvel Select accessories. Those were already done before, though...
