90's X-Men toys for the weekend of 2/23/2013

More 90's X-Men toys came in this week, including 2099 toys.  Many of us may remember the 2099 line in both Marvel's comic and toy line.  The one pictured is both versions of La Lunatica.  Our 90's X-Men toys range from $5 to $10 each.

*Information for X-Men 2099*  X-Men 2099 was one of those series that has simply been pushed into the black hole of collective forgetfulness of comic book readers. I have friends that are huge comic fans and they have never mentioned it in conversation, not even to make fun of it. To be quite honest, I had to go back and read a few issues so I'd have some background for this review. Also, this book came out in the mid 1990's when Marvel couldn't wait for an excuse to flood store shelves with yet another book of a futuristic/ alternate dimensional stories that have loose ties to current continuity. This series was full of a bunch of strange creations( both heroes and villains, and sometimes that line wasn't so clear) with such memorable names as Brimstone Love, Halloween Jack, Shadow Dancer amongst many others ( I won't bore you too much, those of you who continued reading past the mention of X-Men 2099 I personally applaud you.).  *Information from Raging Nerdgasm*
