Last post about anything that has less than 10 points of articulation. I promise (fingers crossed behind my back).In fact my good buddy John over at the Clawful Punch put me up on a Joe sighting at a Five Below variety store and since then I’ve picked up a couple that I’d like to get around to posting about. But today we have the Dollar Store exclusive (Dollar General, Family Dollar and maybe Big Lots-NOT DOLLAR TREE) Wolverine. I’m loving the head sculpt first and foremost. The vibrant Astonishing X-Men uni looks great and the height of the figure is pretty much on point. It’s an awesome figure considering.
I’ve been after this figure almost as long as I’ve been after the 80’s Secret Wars version. This IMO is the ultimate Wolverine action figure! It’s that good. A brown suited Wolverine figure with this much articulation would have blown our minds as kids. If ever (and “ever” could mean very soon) I choose to sell off some of my collection, this one will be a definite keeper. In fact I’m thinking about setting up a website to start getting rid of some stuff online and hopefully make a couple extra bucks in the process , and when I do, this guy is staying put 🙂 Everything from the facial expression down to the included sword, ala the 90’sToy Biz version. The scale is perfect, too. The Wolverine Origins line spawned some really cool versions of Wolverine, this being one of them. Enjoy the pics!
