I typically stick to Hot Toys for my 12″ Marvel collecting purchases, but this latest from Sideshow Collectibles definitely has me rethinking that stance.
The crown jewel of the X-Men franchise, Wolverine, gets a sleek 12″ modern take on his classic X-Men brown and orange costume. I love the head sculpts and the accessories. The claws look great as well, but I’m not as sure about the gauntlets as it has more of that movie design where it has to explain all the parts of the costume.
Every X-Men fan knows what that mean. Joining our growing Marvel Sixth Scale figure collection, is the Sideshow Collectibles mutant hero, Wolverine!
Ok, so while he may not actually be laced with adamantium, Logan is more than ready to let the claws come out. Meticulously crafted on an all-new muscular body design with two pairs of beefy arms, multiple swap-out hands, and a full range of articulation.
Fitted in a fantastically tailored tactical version of his classic brown and tan costume, ol’ Canucklehead comes with both masked and unmasked head sculpts, each channeling his unbridled berserker rage. To further honor his impressive legacy, we’ve also included the legendary Muramasa blade, a key weapon from Wolverine mythos.
So what are you waiting for, Bub? If you’re looking for the ultimate Wolverine, let there be no doubt – he’s the best there is!
