That darned old Wolverine!

I walked around the mall looking for a little plastic Nightcrawler to sit on my desk & look cute next to my computer... But all I found was Wolverine toys! There were NO NIGHTCRAWLER TOYS anywhere! There were shelves filled with Wolverine things everywhere, and boxes of plastic claws for kids to scare their parents with too! Life is so unfair!

Maybe they're still there because nobody wanted them, and took all the Nightcrawler toys for themselves? :rolleyes I agree... I can't find a Nightcrawler toy to save my life (however much I want to have one... :\ )

I managed to find one lonely, slightly defective, previously opened Evo-Kurt at a Wherehouse a few months ago. Absolutely no luck whatsoever with movie or comic Kurt. Try E-bay, I've considered it to get my hands on a comic-Kurt, but my current priority is buying Excalibur back-issues, so not right yet....

I've found a lot of Nightcrawler toys on eBay - more than I'm interested in having, in fact. You might still be able to find the 6" and 12" X2 figures. Kurt's also been included in a number of other X-Men sets over the years.

My wal-mart always has X2 kurt toys. The face sculpt on the 12 in one looks like me before I cut my hair, and if I was blue, and scared.

Have you guys tried flea markets? I have some Nightcrawler, and other x-men figures that from the 80's and 90's and even some new ones that I found there. You really have to look at the old toys stands but you can really make out. I bought a bag of mixed action figures for 2 bucks from this one old lady getting rid of her grown kids old toys, and it had 2 juggernauts, a nightcrawler, gambit, and magneto aswell as some dc figures and other random ones. I even found one of the old x-men board games unopened. I will admit though, I tend to spend hours at markets, so not everyone may have the patienets to find this stuff, but it's worth a shot.

That's good news! No offence to those who love movie Kurt, but I would much rather have a comic Kurt figure. I hope he will be in his classic costume as well.

I'm guessing it will be, since all the Classics so far have been in the original (or mostly original) costumes. And that's wonderful!! All those points of articulation ... yummers! :naughty

Man, I almost got a nightcrawler toy once...it was the one with the covers they had but then some punk little kid took it before I could get to it! I wanted to take it but...the kid was 5.

I found a few of those at the flea market, but I'm really not crazy about them. They don't stand right and I really don't think mine are defects because I've seen others like them. Also, I don't like the coloring on the Nightcrawler one. I like the quicksilver evo toy the best I think.

There use to be quite a lot of X2 Nighty toys in my area. I din't really want a movie Kurt but I'd just reconciled myself to having a movie toy instead of a comic one and then they all sold out.

In the end I had to spend a fortune on a Bowens Nightcrawler mini statue:love. It's beautiful and everything but they forgot to paint on the eyes. I half want to do it myself but I'm afraid of cocking it up.

Post by fuzzymutant26 » Sun Jun 06, 2004 12:36 pm

Yea, I know, Wolverine, Gambit, Beast...no nightcrawler....

I can't even find any movie crawler toys!
Or Evo Toys!!!!

I know it seems unthinkable, but, there are barely any nightcrawler fans because, very few know about him.

With the recent cancelling of X-men:Evolution on Cartoon Network (A very highly rated and viewed network) know the only place you can watch it is on the WB with the old toons, which I (and no one I know) like. In his debue in the Box Office hit X-2: X-Men United Nightcrawler's role was wonderful in the beginning and many viewvers were fans right there...but, then horrible Dialouge and the complete and utter distruction of all traces of Kurt's personallity ruined his image amoungst viewers. 7/8 of all the viewers interviewed after leaving the theater said Wolverine was their favorite character. Nighty, makes a horribly astonishing 1/32. It makes me wanna cry... :cry

Another thing is the diminishing appearance of Nighty in comics now a days, sometimes I think they just forgot about him... :( :cry :puppy

Well, to all those young CREATORS and ARTISTS out there, keeping the NIGHTY character alive...A SALUTE! From a fellow creator and artist!

Yeah, they are pretty bad. It took me about 30 seconds to realize that they weren't some bad hallucination. The other thing they had was some kind of bendy-figure. A sort of NC meets Gumby....*shudders*:stunned

I used to have one of those old fashioned bendy figures of Nightcrawler...but my dog chewed his head off...

The only movie figures I can find are, toad, wolverine, xavier, and rogue!

first of all I love nightcrawler. I like the 616 kurt the best but if you want more and better kurts you need to buy the ones that are out as in movie kurt is not my favorite,but I have both of the figures. I also have the ultamate nightcrawler bust and I have huge problems with the ultamate lines(and when I say huge I mean FN huge problems) but you have to support whats out there or they wont make more

I've had the Evo figure (with the cool little springy table) for a fair few months, but I only just got the movie figure (My cousin bought it for me, because apparently it was 'going cheap'.), which previously I had trouble finding. And, the original point about Wolverine being everywhere, is too true... I mean, I know he's pretty much the 'focus' character, but he has his own *game*. Things are getting somewhat ridiculous.
