Wolverine

Wolverine is one of the most popular X-Men and also got the most figures in the X-Men series. He received a figure in almost every line of the X-Men series and most of his figures were pretty good. He did have some weird ones and some that were not good at all. I thought they should have cut the number of Wolverine's down to make room for some other characters. Wolverine would be made in many of the outfits he wore in the comics, but his yellow one would be made the most. I thought they should have spent less time molding him in his yellow outfit and use some of his other ones.

Wolverine


X-Men Series 1 - 1991



This is the first of many Wolverine figures made by ToyBiz. He is in his current brown and orange costume, which he started wearing around Uncanny X-Men #139. He went back to his original yellow and blue tiger stripe costume shortly after this figure was released. Interestingly, although Wolverine would be remade in almost every series he would not be remade in this costume until the Modern Age series. Also, it is the only Wolverine with a removable mask. The figure comes with retractable claws, which was attempted on several figures after this one. The claws can be brought up into the arms and will spring out when a small lever is pushed on the back of his arms. The mask can double as a ring as well.

Figure ability: Retractable claws, removable mask
Accessories: Samurai Sword, Mask

Wolverine


X-Men Talking Series - 1991



This Wolverine is retooled from the series 1 one, but with a different head and arms that removed the 'action features' of the original. His talking backpack will say 'Take Your Best Shot!', 'I've Got Claws. I Can Use Them!', an 'SNIKT!'

Figure ability: None
Accessories: Talking Backpack, Samurai Sword

Wolverine II


X-Men Series 2 - 1992


X-Men Classics - 1995



This Wolverine is of him in his original costume when he joined the X-Men in Giant Size X-Men #1. You can tell it's of his original yellow costume since there is no X symbol on his belt. This figure itself would be reused several times for other Wolverine variants. I'm really not sure why it came with a handgun though. The claws on this figure could be pushed into his forearms, but they would not stay by themselves and they could not go completely into his arms. The figure also has twisting action - a place to put you thumb on his back to twist him from side to side to make him slash his claws.

Figure ability: Pop out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun

Wolverine III


X-Men Series 2 - 1992



Another Wolverine whose body and head will be reused several times. This figure is a lot like the Wolverine II that was also in this series having both the same figure abilities and accessories. This figure is how Wolverine looked around Uncanny X-Men #275. Interestingly, Wolverine in this costume would not be remade but would a similar one would be released in a set in 1999.

Figure ability: Snap out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun

Wolverine 2.5


X-Men Series 2 - 1992



This Wolverine was actually released as Wolverine III, but it uses the top half of a Wolverine III and the bottom half of a Wolverine II. One of stranger figures.

Figure ability: Snap out claws, twisting slash action
Accessories: Gun

Weapon X Wolverine


X-Men Series 2 - 1992



This Wolverine would be the first to have special variant figures. The variants mostly included different color wires and cables that were on his body. The thing I liked most about this figure is how they did the claws. The claws are out permanently, no retractable mechanism. The helmet is also removable though it is attached to his body via the cables.

Figure ability: Hi tech helmet
Accessories: Helmet and power cables

Weapon X Wolverine


X-Men Series 2 - 1992



This was the repaint that was released only at Kay-bee toys. The only difference is that he has red cables.

Figure ability: Hi tech helmet
Accessories: Helmet and power cables

Spy Wolverine


X-Men Series 3 - 1993


Marvel Universe '96 Series 6 - 1996


X-Men Kay-Bee Series 4 - 1998



Another Wolverine would grace this series as well with this time in spy gear. It is modeled after how he looked in flashbacks in X-Men #4-#6. The facemask does swivel away from the face though it is not removable. This figure would have several variants with different colored outfits. While the regular figure is black, a green one as well as a blue one would be released.

Figure ability: Knife thrusting action
Accessories: Knives (4), Knife, Knife
