Diamond Select Reveals Action Figure for 'The Wolverine'

Posted by G-Man (30673 posts) - - Show Bio

Back in February, Toy Fair 2013 took place at the Javits Convention Center. You can see our full photo gallery of the Diamond Select product HERE. One thing you'll notice is there's no sign of any product from The Wolverine. Product was at the Diamond Select booth but photographs were not allowed. It wasn't a conspiracy or anything as you can see below, the figure looks pretty good. It's believed it was simply a matter of pending license approval.

Diamond Select, through their Marvel Select line, has released figures based on the comic book versions as well as the Cinematic Universe. Now we can behold the Wolverine figure.

This 7-inch figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant and will be available in the Fall. It has 16 points of articulation, three interchangeable heads and six hands. A sword will also come with as well as a detailed display base, common for the Marvel Select figures.

Along with the Marvel Select figure, there will also be some Minimates on the way. These are still top secret.

You can pre-order this figure from your local comic shop or online specialty toy store.

I love the articulation and the posability! Very nice!

My only problem when it comes to Wolverine figures are when the packaging messes up the claws. I know it's not easy trying to keep those things straight since they're always so thin. But I just wish action figure packaging didn't bend them up before you even have a chance to take it out of the box.

@inferiorego: Ahh! I was thinking the exact same thing! That sculpt clearly came from The Confrontation.

Seriously, where do those claws come from ?!?! :L

Not sure how I feel about the hands.... are they really that big/loose? I would also prefer other pants, but those are ok.

Remember when Wolverine had body hair? What's wrong with depicting him as a goddamn man??

So,... idk how long it's been since I've had action figures/statuettes but are multiple facial features/expressions a normal thing? Do you switch the heads out or do you change it's face while... how would you change his face?

If you have adamantium claws that cut through anything, why would you use a steel katana?

The face is so well-detailed, it's almost creepy.
