The iconic blue and yellow costumed version of Wolverine is coming to the One:12 Collection, and he’s set to be Mezco’s fall exclusive.
The best there is
When Mezco announced that the first Wolverine figure to join their One:12 Collection would be wearing the brown and orange, I was pretty happy. That’s actually my favorite costume for Logan. I imagine though, that there were more than a few fans who were a little confused.
The blue and yellow suit was his first outfit. That was way back when the character was introduced in the pages of Incredible Hulk #181. And it was also that costume that would become the one that he was synonymous with. That’s the suit that Wolvie donned in not just the blockbuster X-Men books of the 90s, but also in the most famous of the X-cartoons, and in many a video game. It might not be my favorite, but there’s no arguing that it’s the most popular.
So it’s pretty great to hear that it’s on the way after all.
Yellow and blue Wolverine will be the fall exclusive figure for Mezco’s One:12 line. He’ll be in the booth at NYCC (#1954) from October 5th to the 8th, and will also be on sale online at Mezco’s webstore. So if you can’t make it to the big show, you can still get one to add to your collection. You can preorder him as of next Wednesday, September 13th.
