If you’ve been collecting Marvel Legends since the Toy Biz days you may roll your eyes at the revelation that a Wolverine will be packed in an X-Men themed wave. However, let’s be honest it’s actually been quite some time since the last Wolverine figure in Marvel Legends. Iron Man and Captain America have taken the torch as the “go to” figures for the line.
We’d seen all the other figures in this wave which will go up for preorder June 1st, it includes Ice Man, Cable, Deadpool, Havoc, Kitty Pryde, Rogue, and Phoenix. Wolverine rounds out the eighth figure to fill a full case, and he comes with the head of the newly confirmed Juggernaut build-a-figure. Wolverine looks great, and dare I say I’m quite excited to be adding yet another Wolverine to the collection!
Here’s the source of the news, direct from Hasbro Pulse:
Marvel Legends fans got their first sneak peek at the upcoming X-Men Marvel Legends 6-Inch assortment last October at New York Comic Con 2015 with the reveal of Rogue. Then in February at New York Toy Fair 2016, six new mutant figures were unveiled: Deadpool, Cable, Jean Grey, Iceman, Havok and Kitty Pryde (complete with Lockheed!).
As one of the most popular and iconic X-Men, Wolverine gets a new body sculpt and dons the look of his trademark brown and tan costume. After premiering back in Uncanny X-Men #139 (1980), the brown and tan suit outfitted Wolverine until 1991 and was his longest continuous costume.
Speaking of powerful and iconic brown-costumed characters from the pages of the X-Men, fans will without a doubt recognize the Build A Figure in this assortment. Check back in the next few days for the complete reveal of this unstoppable villain!
