The Uncanny X-Men (AKA X-Men) (Toy Biz)



The Uncanny X-Men
Toy Biz
1991-1998

When it comes to incredibly large lines, Toy Biz's The Uncanny X-Men certainly stands out as a line to be reckoned with.  In it's eight year span, the series managed to churn out seven series of basic figures, a few vehicles and playsets, and about two hundred figures related to various sub series and gift sets.

Truth be told, Toy Biz's X-Men line is a series we've wanted to tackle here at The Toy Box for a long time.  However, because its so large, and so many X-Men related figures were released during this time period, its difficult to tell which figures in the sub series were actually intended to be connected to the basic line, if any at all, and this is really a best guess effort after several months of research, and a whole lot of photograph work.  While we believe this to be complete, if you don't see something that you feel should be a part of the series, or if you see something you don't think should be here, please let us know what, and why.  Please note that we have not included the X-Force series as while this line started out as a sub series, it really took off on its own as a series unto itself.

We've labeled every photo with its series title, and to help organize everything, with the exception of the basic series which is listed first, everything else is listed in alphabetical order.  All the photos are also date stamped with the year that the particular represented series came out.

It's also important to note that while the series launched as "The Uncanny X-Men" in 1991, by 1994 the series title was shortened to just "X-Men".  The majority of the sub series lines fall under the "X-Men" title.

Without further delay we present to you what we feel is the entire 1990's Toy Biz (The Uncanny) X-Men line!

In closing, if you are a major package variant hunter, then it is worth noting that Canada produced and released several limited two pack sets from the various sub series, and even had their own X-Men/Spider-Man two pack waves.  These sets were limited from 4,000 to 6,000 pieces, and are very difficult to get at reasonable prices.

Join us next time when we take a look at a somewhat continuation of The Uncanny X-Men line with the sub series that turned into its own series, X-Force!

  2. A Wonderful representation of this often under appreciated toy line.

    I did notice quite a few absence items. Mostly variants and reissues, but a few significant omissions.
    I'm sure there are more. However, the scope of Vendor and Region exclusives: as well as the seemingly endless repacks during the 10+ years of Toybiz's empire escapes even me.
    Many checklist sites seem complete, but often have numerous missing pieces within even common sets.
    They are good starting points for casual collectors, but a diehard completist will often have to fill in the holes themselves. When you think you got them all, a piece you were unaware of will pop up out of nowhere. Between Toybiz's X-men, and Spider-Man lines, you might spend years mastering your collections.

    1. Thanks for the very comprehensive list. We will look into adding these.

  3. I also forgot the Wolverine Jeep and 4x4(repack of the jeep with Wolverine figure).

    It would be neat to finally see a complete visual list of all the Marvel Toybiz 10" figures. Alot of people don't realize that there are well over 100 figures to collect.

    1. We haven't given up on updating this post...It's just not easy to find all the pieces you listed. We found some, just not many.

      Delete
    2. Very cool list! I didn't realize there was an extensive line; I have a few from what you mentioned above and some not on it. I'll try to list them when I get a chance. Is there a good site that estimates their value?
      Thanks,
      Nick

    3. Thanks, we'll look for the list. We've been attempting to locate the numerous missing items from the list provided above by the other reader, but it has been difficult to the point of almost futile.

      Unfortunately we don't know of any sites that would benefit in terms of estimated values. You could always check ebay for completed listings and come up with an estimated value based on all sales.

    4. I have 90% of the extended list, above. I'll email photos as soon as everything is set up (just moved.. unpacking)

    5. That would be most welcome! Thank you!

    Mojo
    Silver Samurai
    Sentara
    Trevor Fitz Roy
    Rictor
    Sunspot

    Thanks,

  5. Great page! In recently going through my comics/toy collection, I have a 1997 Gambit (Robot Fighters) without the mouthpiece or antenna: however a hole is in the right ear where this piece should be. No, the piece is not anywhere within the package which is still sealed. I am wondering if this is a variant anyone is aware of.
    Thanks!

  6. The Cyclops in Series 5 should be Jim Lee Cyclops, not X-Factor Cyclops.
