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.

Cool!
Which figure is your favorite?

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.

That Mezco is a cool one!


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    :)

Awesome coins, Neko!


Had no idea that they even existed.

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.

Badass! I've never seen these.  I'm going to have to keep an eye out for these.  I MUST have them!

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


Never seen or heard of those coins, crazy

Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony
