|1996 Toy Biz Nightcrawler|
The figure seen in those displays is from a 1996 line from Toy Biz called "Light Up Weapon Classics". As as the name suggests, this version of the character came with a light-up flaming sword (which I believe I still have, but it's gone into storage along with the Gambit and Psylocke figures that I also had from the line).
This figure has the classic red-and-black costume and the traditional haircut. The toy has 9 points of articulation and a battery in its back, which powers the sword (you can see the holding spot for it in the figure's right hand).
This seems to be the figure that I see the most custom and repainted versions of, so I think there must have been a lot of these on the market at some point.
Even though this is the only Nightcrawler figure I have

is in storage.
And finally, I also have the 2004 "Twist 'Ems" movie-tie in wind-up toy (with functional walking motion), which is small and silly, but also has a surprisingly detailed face sculpt that genuinely looks like that epic make-up job from X-2. I'd actually thought I'd put that one in storage as well, but it turns out he was actually in my craft box, so here he is:
