He’s back, and this time Mezco’s take on the classic blue and yellow suited Wolverine might be the best yet. And that’s not even mentioning the stand.
The best at what he does
Mezco has produced a few Wolverines over the years, but the pinnacle might be their iconic blue and yellow edition. Released as a convention exclusive years ago, the figure sold out in seconds and remains nearly impossible to get ahold of. Well, he was anyway.
The toy company is back at it with the best-loved look for Logan, and this new version could easily be the best version of the character they’ve produced. Or maybe I should say ‘versions’, since this figure allows fans to re-create multiple eras.
Logan comes complete with first-appearance heads, as well as the more familiar ones from the Giant Sized X-Men through Jim Lee years. On top of that, he also includes both metallic claws and bone ones. So if you dug the bone clawed Wolvie from the aftermath of his run-in with Magneto, you can make that version too.
He’s also stocked with a whole bunch of effect-pieces. These are made to mimic the comic-book effects of the hero’s claws slashing through the air. Then to really knock this one over the wall, there’s the base.
This has to be Mezco’s most ambitious display-type piece yet, and is a defeated Sentinel. The right eye is removable so you can customize the amount of damage Wolverine did to it, and it even lights up. Yeah, that’s awesome.
The piece is available right now for pre-order, and will run you $155 USD. It’s set to arrive some time in quarter 4 of this year. Click here to check that out, or scroll down for the full details.
