Hot Toys - "Wolverine" in X-Men Origins Pt.1


For box packaging, I prefer the usual Hot Toys 5-panel box with outer sleeve as this one looks like a shoe box to me. The box cover has a graphic of embossed Wolverine Claws with printed movie title whereas the back of the box shows a list of production credits and picture of the figure.

Inside the box, there is a printed paper cover that reveals a brief bio and picture of the figure. Beneath this, we will find the fully dressed figure with accessories housed in a standard Hot Toys plastic tray. Surprisingly, no twisties are used this time round.

I am still happy with the head sculpt produced even if the likeness of Hugh Jackman is not that accurate. The accessories are - dog tags, a leather belt with detailed buckle, 2 pairs of interchangeable hands with extra wrist pegs and a figure stand with movie logo and "Wolverine" nameplate.

Great score Des!!! This is one sweet figure!

Arrgh..I missed to pick this one up last weekend....I was too late.....my toy dealer dude ran out of stock. So now I have to wait for early next year for mine!

For the record, the 'generic' looking Wolvie might be to our advantage.....without actually looking specifically like Jackman! He looks mean and feral....good enough in my books!

Bro, hope you can get yours soon. This figure is awesome and my favourite of this set are the outfits and accessories given, damn nice. The other stuff is the "claws" of Wolverine. Super realistic and they are definitely better than the MEDICOM version..

Cool stuff! Maybe he will come with a motorbike or a DX version with X-men costume. :D

Nice & awesome... many collector down grade this Wolvie b4, but when saw the real figure, they said..argghhhhhhhhhh, so nice !!!

Ya Leon, Hot Toys may produce a DX version Wolverine. Anything is possible but I believe HT will not produce Wolverine's bike as that is nothing special in the movie..

desmond said...

Yes Asrul, Wolverine is also one of my favourite figures. There is a possibility for HT to produce DX version Wolverine..Let's wait and see :)

Ya Cowboy75 - the actual figure looks gorgeous with awesome outfits. This piece worth the purchase :P

desmond said...

Yes Dennis, it is one of my favourite figures in 2009.

Ya bro, I still love the figure even though the head sculpt likeness is not close to Hugh Jackman :)
