It’s Hasbro‘s Marvel Monday, which means it’s time for a new Marvel toy release, and with the ongoing celebration of the X-Men movie franchise’s anniversary, Marvel Legends has been releasing a collection of figures based on the X-Men as seen on the big screen!
While fans have seen other members of the mutant team and its villains appear in previous weeks, this week sees the release of two figures from the films, though they are in their iconic comic costumes in a stunning new 2-pack that is now available to collectors.
- Fans and collectors alike can enjoy these 6-inch-scale Rogue and Pyro action figures.

Rogue first appeared alongside Mystique and her Brotherhood of Mutants as a villain of the Avengers, though she soon abandoned her villainous ways and sought out Professor Xavier and the X-Men for her chance to reform and learn how to control her abilities. This new Marvel Legends figure features a costume from the comics that represented a time when Rogue had attained a new level of control over her power-siphoning abilities, and the figure comes with additional hands and an interchangeable head for ultimate poseability.
John Allerdyce/Pyro was a member of the Brotherhood alongside Rogue and would continue to work with Mystique on her government-sanctioned Freedom Force before his death from the Legacy Virus in the ’90s. However, thanks to the new mutant resurrection protocols on Krakoa, Pyro has returned to life and works alongside Kate Pryde’s Marauders, though this Marvel Legends figure features the characters’ original costume and comes with fire-effects to replicate his mutant ability to control and manipulate flame.
These new Marvel Legends figures come on the heels of other announcements for new additions to the Star Wars Black Series line of figures, as well the other X-Men anniversary figures that include movie versions of Wolverine, Mystique, Professor X, Magneto, and more!
And if fans are looking to add bigger Marvel items to their collection from Hasbro, a Kickstarter for a new scale Sentinel was launched and funded, and a life-sized electronic severed Deadpool head has announced that will look great next to these new Rogue and Pyro Marvel Legends figures!
