The Blackbird is the X-Men's main source of conventional transportation. Professor Charles Xavier somehow gained at least one working version of the RS-150 Blackbird from S.H.I.E.L.D., after the X-Men's Stratojet had been destroyed by Count Nefaria. Located in an aircraft hanger on the grounds of the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, the Blackbird served the Professor and X-Men for many years. At some time, the Professor upgraded to the SR-71 Blackbird. The Devil's Rock was the exit and entry point for the X-Men's aircraft.

After the X-Men were thought dead in Dallas, Texas, Nightcrawler, who had since joined Excalibur, teleported into the Skunk Works, a part of the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, and started-up the SR-71 Blackbird, taking it back to England.

The Blackbird also relies on the offensive capabilities of its passengers and crew.

Wow, this is amazing. At first glance I just assumed this was a repainted GI Joe plane, that's how well crafted this thing is. All the details in the cockpit and the engine compartment are really impressive.

I have been a fan of figurerealm for quite some time; and this is the most exceptional blackbird I have ever seen. Great job!

I don't even know what to say....
The awesomeness of this is just too much for my brain to handle...
ManyMack Creationz - Thursday, November 7, 2013
I feel like that too, I can't stop staring at this. This is what I wanted hasbro to do (wishful thinking of course). And the Toyman came through!
Gonard - Thursday, November 7, 2013
Haha yeah, my only hope for me ever making anything like this would be to mess with the one from the x-men movies and even then it will be nothing compared to toyman's.
Major Kudos to toyman and his team for making this out of scratch, their hard work and dedication really went a long way with this one!
ManyMack Creationz - Thursday, November 7, 2013
OMG, I want this so bad, this is a MASTERPIECE. I hate you right now! I might comment on this every time I look at it! Please can you make me one!
