8 X-MEN COLLECTION BLU-RAY/DIGITAL HD BOXSET

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

This combined Blu Ray/Digital HD box set is a comprehensive collection of the six core X-Men films: X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days Of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse. While the history of the Fox films has been checkered, to say the least, there is four very high quality films in this collection.

And two that are pretty terrible! But, regardless, any X-fan should own and re-watch them while we all wait to see what is going to happen with Dark Phoenix and the assumed Disney/MCU reboot of the franchise.

7 UNCANNY X-MEN: X-MEN DISASSEMBLED GRAPHIC NOVEL

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON COMIXOLOGY

The X-Men comics are routinely in a state of flux, constantly bouncing from one earth-shattering event to another, wreaking havoc on the various X-teams. The most recent event was 'X-Men Disassembled', which took place in the pages of the newly relaunched Uncanny X-Men.

This weighty tome collects #1-10 of that title and is written by three of best X-scribes working today: Ed Brisson, Matthew Rosenberg and Kelly Thompson. Mahmud Asrar and Pere Perez are amongst the artists and the team lineup includes Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Jean Grey, Storm, Beast, Bishop, and X-23!

6 X-MEN: VOLUME 1 ANIMATED SERIES DVD

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

The early '90s was a golden age for superhero cartoons, with Batman: The Animated Series and Spider-Man delighting comic book kids every Saturday morning for years. Another fondly remembered cartoon was the X-Men animated series, which is iconic for many of the current writers and artists working in comics today.

This DVD collection features the entire first season and a handful of episodes from the second season on two stacked discs. All in all, it's 16 episodes of classic X-goodness, including the amazing two-part opener 'Night Of The Sentinels'.

5 LOGAN FUNKO POP! VINYL FIGURE

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Every X-Men fan has a soft spot for Wolverine, right? He might be the most over-exposed X-character in history, but that's mostly because he's so darn cool! This Funko Logan stands at 3 3/4 inches tall and features the Canucklehead in his street clothes, claws popped and ready for action!

He has a bit of grey at his temples and looks fairly grizzled (though still super cute, like all Funko Pops). This Pop would be perfect for any X-fan who loved Hugh Jackman's last go-around on the big screen, in James Mangold's superb Logan.

4 FUNKO ROCK CANDY: MARVEL COLLECTOR CORPS - DARK PHOENIX VINYL FIGURE

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

The Rock Candy imprint of Funko features slightly different designs than the standard Pop Vinyls. These figures are 15cm tall and their heads aren't as large as Pop Vinyls, though they're still as cute. They are slightly more detailed than the Pops too and this Dark Phoenix edition, which was exclusive to Marvel Collector Corps subscribers, is awesome.

Jean Grey is one of the most important characters in X-history and The Dark Phoenix Saga is probably the greatest X-Men epic ever created, so a Phoenix toy is a must-own.

3 X-MEN: THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR UNIVERSE HARDCOVER BOOK

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

X-Men: The Characters and Their Universe is a lavish hardcover coffee table book that tells the story of the X-Men, from their creation in 1963 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, through to their late 1970s re-emergence as a platform for socially and politically relevant storytelling.

It also takes fans up to the present day by revealing how the characters have been adapted into the worlds of television and film, including the ground-breaking 1992 animated series and the blockbuster feature films. For fans of the comic books, it also provides a unique one-stop-shop catalog of every major character that has appeared from 1963 to the present!

2 MARVEL LEGENDS WALGREENS EXCLUSIVE MYSTIQUE ACTION FIGURE

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Marvel Legends is the premier line of action figures produced by the House Of Ideas. From every comics character under the sun, to figures based on the movie versions of all your favorite MCU characters, this toy line has it all. This Mystique figure is based on her physical appearance in the classic comics and was exclusive to Walgreens stores.

It comes with a number of accessories, including a pretty badass gun, and also has two additional interchangeable heads (playing on Mystique's nature as a shapeshifter): Rogue and Lilandra!

1 DIAMOND SELECT TOYS MARVEL PREMIER COLLECTION: MAGNETO RESIN STATUE

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Undoubtedly one of the greatest comic book supervillains ever created, Magneto has been an integral part of the X-Men comics since their very inception. This Diamond Select Toys 'Master Of Magnetism' statue is utterly beautiful and is limited to only 3000 pieces (with each box being numbered).

It was sculpted by Phil Ramirez, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and measures 16 inches tall. At $120 it may only be for fans with deep pockets, but it's such a gorgeous collectible that we think those fans should treat themselves!
