Custom #:12916  
Name:Astral Armor Professor X
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:glennwebman69  
Date Added:February 25, 2009
Base Figure:ML Quickslver

"The leader of the X-Men and one of the most powerful telepaths on the planet is not bound to his wheelchair when danger calls! Professor X's mind is so strong he can actually leave his body and project his Astral Form anywhere in the world. When he does this he becomes a full fighting member of the team. With projections of armor and weapons as powerful as his mind!"

That's from the back of the card of the Astral Armor Prof. X from the pre-Legends figure series. I know the Professor rarely battle on the astral plane in the comic books but the idea is pretty intriguing. At first I had planned to use the armor from the original figure as I had done with my recent AOA Iceman. After attaching the armor to the Quicksilver I placed the figure on a radiator to pop the head off and unfortunately forgot about it. Came back much later to find the armor all warped out of shape and beyond repair. In panic I dug deep into my fodder box and used the shoulder armor of some unknown figure and the knees from ML Omega Red. The shield is all that remains of the original figure's armor. The sword is the accessory that came with Nightcrawler from the light-up X-Men series. Painted with Citadel paints.

Yeah, guess ML Prof X should not go on a canoe trip anytime soon coz "He sure do got a purty mouth!"

I think the head you used is fantastic. I always thought the ML Xavier looked a bit... well... fresh faced and fruity. Maybe it was just his lipstick that gave me that impression.
Anyway, yeah, I love this custom along with the hoverchair one. The faces are perfect versions of how I think of Xavier... are they from the movie figure?

Cheers. Yeah if I had the ML Prof head I may have used but more often my figures I dictated by what's in the fodder box.
