Sideshow presents the Gambit Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure, a new Marvel collectible stealing his way into your X-Men collection. Inspired by his 90s era classic costume, the Gambit Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure features a detailed, cowled headsculpt based on Remy LeBeau’s comic book appearance, complete with swappable short hair and long hair sculpts for differing display options. Being a master bandit, the figure also includes an entire thief’s plunder of accessories for creating action-packed poses for this charming Marvel mutant. His armory includes a silver staff, four sculpted aces painted with purple accents, a single card with a sculpted kinetic energy trail, and a triple card throwing effect showing Gambit’s energetic powers in action. Remy LeBeau also comes with eight sets of hands in total.

In 1992, Marvel Entertainment commissioned Jim Lee, the young superstar penciller behind X-MEN (1991) #1, to create all of the art for a new set of 105 trading cards—a set that would go on to become one of the most celebrated in Marvel history and the gold standard for non-sports trading-card artwork and design. The Uncanny X-Men Trading Cards: The Complete Series collects, for the first time, the front and back of each collectible card in the set—including Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Magneto, and Deadpool—along with select scans of Lee’s original and digitally remastered art. It also includes interviews, conducted by writer and set editor Bob Budiansky, with the Marvel staff who helped assemble, design, and create these iconic trading cards.
