Check this out! Art Asylum recently posted the world’s very first look at toys associated with the upcoming Marvel Comics movie X-Men: First Class and they look pretty cool. Just like the film’s fast-tracked release, Art Asylum had to move quickly to get these Minimate action figures ready for the film’s summer release. The X-Men: First Class Minimates Series includes Charles Xavier, Magneto, Beast, Havok, Mystique, Emma Frost, Sebastian Shaw and Azazel.
I actually really like these X-Men: First Class Minimates because all of the looks come straight from film’s most recent kick-ass trailer. If I had one complaint it would be that all the X-Men uniforms include those big parachute straps and buckles, which kind of detracts from their classic blue and yellow look. But I’m sure Art Asylum was trying to recreate each character’s signature look from the movie, which they did perfectly (from what I’ve seen so far).
No word on when this series of X-Men: First Class Minimates will hit stores, but I would assume they would be released around the same time as the film, June 3, 2011. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars James McAvoy as Professor Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, January Jones as Emma Frost, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and Jason Flemyng as Azazel.
