Wolverine Legends have finally made their way to retail via comic shops and online stores. They were designed to be released as part of the Wolverine movie this summer but did not make it to mass market retail. Instead they became a Diamond exclusive. If that weren’t enough, Hasbro made them more controversial with the case pack ratio.
It worked out in Wolverine’s favor though because out of a case, which is 8 figures, there are 3 Wolverines. And he doesn’t even have a Puck build-a-figure piece but comes with a stand instead. On top of that, Wolverine is a repaint of the X-Force Wolverine from the Hit Monkey wave released earlier this year.
It turns out this was a smart move on Hasbro’s part because the X-Force Wolverine is considered one of the best Wolverine figures made to date. This repaint is based on his current costume which is blue and yellow, while maybe not his most popular look, it is his most common.
Scroll down to read reviews of this figure.
“That being said, from an action figure standpoint, I think the Hasbro X-Force Wolverine (of which this is a simple repaint) is the best ever released. Gentle Giant really knocked the functionality out of the park and Logan’s look and proportions are translated more accurately than just about any Wolverine figure ever made.” – TheFwoosh.com
“The figure remains the best 6″ take on Logan ever, in my opinion– he’s appropriately short, and quite stocky, sporting a great, gruff expression on his face and some excellent in-scale claws on his hands.” – Kastor’s Korner
“This figure, for me, is a must get especially if you’re looking to update your X-Men or Avengers collection.” – Pop Goes Manilla
“Though I’m not entirely satisfied with the paint job, but the sculpt on this action figure is the best out of any Wolverine-sculpt I’ve seen.” – Combollector
“If you can ignore the white-elephant in the room, then you have one hell-of-a-great Marvel Legends figure. Everything that you can possibly love from the X-Force Wolverine.” – Dark Lord Dungeon
