If you were a 90s kid, had access to the X-Men animated series and a backyard, then I’d bet all of my first appearance issues of Deadpool that you role-played as one of two characters: Wolverine or Gambit. Running around a yard with a trio of knives between your knuckles until your mom got home and freaked out was a golden experience, but taking turns to be Gambit? Now that was the fun part.
I’ve got a memory of me stealing my dad’s pack of playing cards and flicking them ineffectively at my imaginary friends, pretending that they were charged with explosive kinetic energy. Who didn’t love Gambit back then? He was coolness personified, a charmer with an awesome accent and the skills to pay the bills.
His look hasn’t changed much since his original debut, as the ragin’ cajun has kept to his trademark body armour, weird as heck neck collar and trenchcoat. That signature look is getting a bit of the ol’ three-dimensional love, as Mezco’s next one:12 figure will be none other than Remy LeBeau himself. Check him out below and try to forget about his one role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was to show up and be a nuisance:
The One:12 Collective Gambit is outfitted in a black mission suit with an X-Men issued armoured vest and removable leather-look overcoat. Complete with 2 head portraits, the master of kinetic energy comes complete with a bo staff and a variety of throwing cards and throwing card FX.
Remy LeBeau, the master thief better known as Gambit, possesses the mutant ability to charge inanimate objects with kinetic energy he can create and control. An agile and intelligent member of the X-Men, Gambit is also a master at card throwing, hand-to-hand combat, and the use of a bo staff.
