Although the facial resemblance of the figure is not close to Hugh Jackman, the facial sculpt is pretty well done. When taking pictures, the sculpt contributes in catching the light and shadow.
After taking "Wolverine" out of the box, I couldn't take my eyes off him as he really looks cool with his adamantium claws.
The boots fit well and look nice when it comes to match with "slim cut" jeans.
The outfit is tailored with excellent stitching. The inner white garment fits the body perfectly. The weathering on the leather jacket is beautifully executed and the zippers are produced to the right scale.
I love the belt buckle as it is detailed made, and works just like a real leather belt.
There is a limitation when posing the arms and over 90 degree of bending in any position may cause the forearms to drop or even damage the elbow articulation. But, not to worry if the forearms dropped as you could assemble the elbow joints back in place easily. The rest of the joint articulation works well.
The paint work on the textured skin, lips, eyes, beard and lines in the face is what makes the head sculpt stand out.
The texturing of sideburn to both sides of the face is nicely sculpted and well differentiated by right amount of colour tone.
The work on the hair is beautifully carried out and it shows a fantastic detail too.
As I was lazy to remove all the garments from the figure, I was not able to show you the hairy muscular body with popping veins.
You have to be extremely cautious when rotating the head as it may damage the skin surface of the front neck. To avoid that, you always need to lift the head in an upward position before doing the rotation. Overall, I am pleased with this figure and highly recommend to get it if you are interested.
