Title: My quest to collect every Gambit figure/collectible is nearly complete
Post by: Blade3D1 on October 11, 2020, 06:49:46 AM
A year ago I decided that I was going to obtain every Gambit collectible ever created.      A year later I’m very close.      I figured I’d share my collection and answer any questions about any particular piece.     


I also would like to ask everyone on here if there are any super rare items that I might be missing.     


I know there are a few statues (mostly the gambit bust) that I still need.      But besides that I believe I have every figure.     


I'd love to see your own collections as well.

Which figure is your favorite?

Post by: Blade3D1 on October 11, 2020, 12:23:15 PM
Figure wise, I'd have to say the Mezco, which I just got this week.  I'm super impressed with it.  Especially the fact that his pants are actual fabric, which I've never seen before on a figure.
Title: Re: My quest to collect every Gambit figure/collectible is nearly complete
Post by: purplevit on October 11, 2020, 02:01:58 PM

Now I am curious what figure is the smallest?

Nice collection.
There is gold, silver and bronze Gambit coins. I never got the gold one because I could not find it or I would have it. I haven't looked for in some time, it might be out there somewhere.  I have the silver and bronze. Very cool looking. I'll attach a pic of the back of the silver one and face of the bronze one. The image is same for all coins as is the text on the back.

They minted 25,000 of bronze, 5000 silver and I have no clue for the gold one. I have a Storm one too. Never found any others but I stopped going crazy on ebay for my own wallet. LOL

edit:
Whoa, the text didn't come out good.
It says:

"A New Orleans native Remy Lebeau can harness the energy in any object and release it...with explosive results! A former member of the Thieves Guild, Lebeau now treads the straight and narrow as the Xman called Gambit."
Coin date is 1997.

Shock warning incoming.
Not only do I have a bronze Storm, I have a bronze Rogue. They both look good. I got the Rogue one after Marvel ruined her for me. I thought they would redeem her and never did. IMO    :)

Smallest would have to be these two.  One is from the X-Men Pocket Comics and the other is from the Bluebird Gambit head playset that was only released in the UK.  They’re basically Marvel versions of Mighty Max toys.

I don’t think there is. LEGO didn’t have too many X-men sets.

I found a site, Icollector dot com that has one silver Gambit coin available. Good Luck. :)

edit: Highland Mint made them. There is a set of 5 silver I never seen before but not sure if available.

I'll post an update with some pics tomorrow. Should be receiving several packages in the mail with some rare stuff... INCLUDING the bronze Highland Mint Gambit coin (THANK YOU Nekobaghira for turning me on to that).

I tried finding it on iCollector, but no luck. I have to get the silver one as well.


I know you said there's a gold one but I can't find anything on it. Do you maybe have a link to a picture of one? Just to confirm it exists so I can put it on my list.

Maybe it sold already on ICollector and I only found one coin the day I searched.

As for the Gold one, there were not a lot of them minted - 500 or less (100). I think the image below is the gold one. I would try ebay too.

That image may be the silver one probably lighting confusing me for what the background would look like for the gold, but know they all look the same and have the same verbiage.

Its amount of availability. The gold ones will be very hard to find. Check ebay, ICollector, Mercari on a regular basis or google. I couldn't find one when I was searching years ago.


HighLand Mint doesn't show them anymore either. You are on a hunt my friend. Good Luck and if you find two, let me know. LOL

I remember when I was setting up the 'Member Collections' section on ABP years ago, you mentioned that you might share some pics of your Gambit coins, and I was like, wait, Gambit has COINS!!!

Here's the five silver on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Marvel-Highland-Mint-Silver-5-Coin-X-Men-Commemorative-Set-39-of-500-Limited-Ed/183924815565?hash=item2ad2c5f6cd:g:LIQAAOSwy19dW5dj

Thank you. I have so much fun creating these images. Nice to be able to share it with a group of folks who are as likely to appreciate this over anyone else I can think of. Never been a better time to be a Gambit fan, huh?

Thought I'd experiment trying to recreate some other effects. Trying for something like this:

A year ago I decided that I was going to obtain every Gambit collectible ever created.      A year later I’m very close.      I figured I’d share my collection and answer any questions about any particular piece.     


I also would like to ask everyone on here if there are any super rare items that I might be missing.

Are you trying to get all the figure variants?
Maybe they are in there but I didn't see them. Here are the ones I didn't notice:
 the metal mutants 2" Gambit, light up Gambit in his original paint scheme(there were actually 2 of these: one with magenta torso and the other with a purple torso). The X-Men vs Street fighter 2 packs. I saw you had the repacked version but there was also a "player 2" variant that had a blue coat and packed with Zangief. Famous Covers Gambit (9" scale/cloth outfit. I have one shown in my previous post. Ugly ass figure.)
Toy Biz also did a 12" Gambit in cloth around '98 or so.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toy-Biz-Marvel-Comics-Special-Edition-Gambit-12-figure/143485632404?hash=item216868ff94:g:nOAAAOSwYpxeCAjF (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toy-Biz-Marvel-Comics-Special-Edition-Gambit-12-figure/143485632404?hash=item216868ff94:g:nOAAAOSwYpxeCAjF)
There was a 3 pack of Bishop, Gambit, Sinister around 99. All re-releases of the original Toy Biz offerings. This Gambit gets a sturdier material for his coat, a black staff instead of silver, and his sleeves under his coat are blue instead of pink.

There were 2 other blue and yellow uniform Gambits released. One in the larger 10" deluxe scale and the other in the 5" scale released in a multipack with all the other X-Men circa UXM 275 with that team look. 

Theres the Marvel Legends Gambit from Toy Biz in that 5 pack with Rogue Wolvy Mags and beast. This Gambit's jacket is pleather instead of fabric. Theres the disk shooter Gambit which is Gambit in his X-Treme X-men outfit. This was in a X-men sub line. I see u do have the repaint of that figure.

Also don't see the Marvel Select variant with the long hair and purple instead of magenta. Thats all I can think of ATM...
Here's what I have on hand

Great collection. I love the pics and recreations. I have to get the target exclusives. Especially Rogue because I missed out on the last Marvel legends of her. Which is a shame because it looks like the best Rogue figure I've ever seen.

It is the best but this new one is mostly the exact same figure with a new hair sculpt and the paint aps are slightly different. Although, best Rogue figure isn't saying much when this is your nearest competition  ;D

I'd swear I've seen that face in a horror movie, I just can't think of which one.

I think Rogue has fared a little better with dolls than true action figures when it comes to attractiveness. Example:

(https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/1661fdd1436f42a68254a0fe25628b17lg.jpg)

Made in a limited edition of 300 pieces, the X-Men Rogue Tonner Doll is made of fine quality vinyl and hard plastic and stands 16-inches tall. The dressed Tonner doll features a hand-painted face and eyes, a Tyler skin tone, and includes brown rooted saran hair with platinum streaks, a green and yellow stretch jumpsuit, a brown faux leather jacket, yellowy stretch gauntlets, two brown belts with metal trim, yellow faux leather boots with back zippers, and two pairs of yellow and Tyler skin tone hands. Emily head sculpt. Limited edition of 300 pieces. Ages 14 and up.

I have this Rogue and she's hideous.lol Rogue hasn't fared too well in action figure form. But the legends figure looks beautiful. But I'm not buying it for $250. I need a Rogue to go with the Marvel legends Gambit figure or the mezco one. I have to make sure to get the target exclusive. I have the barbie style Rogue but I need one to go with the 6in Gambit figures I have.

Ha!  Of course the Gambit figure from that line wasn't that great either facewise.


Also, thanks for sharing your figure set ups they are cool.


I'd swear I've seen that face in a horror movie, I just can't think of which one.



You may be thinking of this video which featured that exact figure lol-

Think the problem with the ML Gambit was the hair.
I swapped out the hair with the Marvel Select and it made a world of difference

The default hair is too shallow making it look like he has a caveman's forehead.

killphil - Awesome collection and even more awesome poses/photos!

I have most of the ones you had mentioned (but maybe aren't shown in the pics) except for the X-Men vs Street fighter 2 pack (which I'm ok with just having the repackaged verision, although I do want the 2nd player variant).

The 12" ToyBiz Special Edition one was the last one that I was missing, and I JUST won it on eBay earlier this week. Should have it next week.

I also need the long hair Diamond Select variant.

But, all that aside... WHAT is that blue armed toybiz one?! I have never seen that!

Thanks for the tip on the Gambit and Rogue retro figures too. I had no idea that was coming out.

Here are a few of my latest additions:


I'm so happy to have the Highland Mint coin (even though I still MUST have the silver and gold ones) and also the completed Plant Studios pin collection finally. The board game I'm thrilled about for nostalgia reasons. The heroclix are pretty meh, to me.

I did! Thanks for the tip on that. PLEASE, if you ever see the silver or gold one up for auction anywhere (if you don't snag it yourself), let me know. I'd love to have all three.

No problem, I'll keep looking. I have wanted the gold one for a long time. :)


Edit: And for your same reasons, I've always wanted all three. :) Got 2, so, closer. That Gold one is going to be tough. LOL

killphil - Awesome collection and even more awesome poses/photos!

I have most of the ones you had mentioned (but maybe aren't shown in the pics) except for the X-Men vs Street fighter 2 pack (which I'm ok with just having the repackaged verision, although I do want the 2nd player variant).

The 12" ToyBiz Special Edition one was the last one that I was missing, and I JUST won it on eBay earlier this week. Should have it next week.

I also need the long hair Diamond Select variant.

But, all that aside... WHAT is that blue armed toybiz one?! I have never seen that!

Thanks for the tip on the Gambit and Rogue retro figures too. I had no idea that was coming out.
That blue armed Gambit came in a 3 pack in the late 90's. Came with Sinister and Bishop as well. Think it was a Kay Bee exclusive? Can't quite remember.
Here's that blue and yellow 10" Gambit. Think he was Kay bee exclusive too. Pretty sure I snagged both him and the 3 pack at the same time.

Here he is in the box

I used to have that board game you just posted too lol. Don't think I have it anymore, though, unfortunately. Had a lot of fun playing it as a kid, though. Think I got that at Kay Bee as well.
They had a sequel to that game. Never got this one, though:

Edit: and a 3rd one too. Never had this one either. Friend of mine did, though. Thats how I even knew this one existed:

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.
https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/107997 (https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/107997)
There are a few statues by Sideshow, Angry Monkey, XM Studios and Iron studios.

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

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.
https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-059244
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.

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:

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...

Heads up to you or anyone interested in the upcoming Mafex Gambit. If you still haven't managed to secure a pre-order, Big Bad Toy Store has him available again. He's been sold out on most e-tailers for a few months now.

I saw someone call Funko dolls the acne of collectibles. Then admitted he was still gonna buy them.


Catbit is super cute tho, it’s for International Cat Day, so Gambit getting recognized as a cat lover, hugging on Lucy. I think it said he was at Hot Topic.



All New Xfactor was so underrated.


I did buy the Target Gambit in anticipation of finally going back to the office after 1 1/2 years of wfh. used to be a super conservative place, like pantyhose and pantsuits required, but now we’re allowed be be our “authentic selves” and turns out half my department are Marvel fans. Now Remy Doll will be the only one in tights!

I find the Funko Pop thing a fad. The company does stuff, then lays low until the next thing they can exploit.  IMO

I can tell you that my hubby is glad I don't want to collect that sort of thing and me too. Too much space.
