Awesome Toy Picks: Marvel Select Gambit

Each week we shop around for the coolest comic book collectibles. Last week we looked at the Marvel Select Colossus figure and some of you mentioned the Gambit figure listed on the back of the packaging. If you've been wondering what that figure is like, now you can find out.

Gambit's first full appearance was in UNCANNY X-MEN #266 and he was created by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee. He's long since been a fan-fav of the X-Men and his shady past has always kept everyone around him on their toes. For a guy wearing purple/pinkish armor and a brown trench coat, he's always managed to carry himself as a cool figure.

There have been several Gambit figures in the past but this is the coolest one so far.

The Marvel Select toys always give you a little something extra with their figures. You don't just get Gambit, you also get a background that simulates a corner of the Danger Room. This is great for display purposes. There are also some extra accessories that come with him.

With the the extra hands and choice of cards, you have some options in how you want to display him. He has plenty of articulation (16 points) and can be put into different positions.

Check him out in 'action.'

This figure is from Diamond Select. It retails for around $20 and definitely has what it takes to replace your old Gambit figures.

That's it for this week's Awesome Toy Picks. Next week we'll be at WonderCon but we'll be sure to have another round to cool collectibles ready to be showcased for all of you.

Wow great detail on the jawline and the midsection and his throwing cars. The classic costume has been tweaked a tiny bit in the pants and boots but i love this gambit costume. Gambit is such a cool character i think everyone can agree on that. Great toy here.

I was waiting for this to be mentioned after seeing the one on Colossus. Just received mine off of Amazon about a week ago. He's currently striking a pose with my newly acquired Movie Maniacs Snake Plissken. While I for the most part prefer this one to it's variant, I like the color on the variant better.

I've still got my old Marvel Legend Gambit sitting on a shelf in the back room. Of course, he's wobbly now and missing a finger, his staff and cards, but he's done pretty well over the years, all things considered.

This is super cool and I want it but I just don't know what I'd actually do with it... it'd just end up like all my NSYNC stuff from when I was a teenager: in tubs in storage in the basement :/

I saw a whole bunch of these figures at my LCS the other day and i can't describe how tempted i was to just buy them all

i was lucky, they didn't have any characters that i couldn't resist buying although i came close with the hulks. some of the earlier waves have ones i would have to have. thank god they were mostly exclusives

It would be cool to see the Deadpool that's on the back of the Gambit box.

Gambit is probably the one X-men character, that I’m missing, that I would really want to add to my collection.
