Wolverine (Magnetic Steel Claws) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:2658  
Name:Wolverine (Magnetic Steel Claws)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:May 16, 2007
Base Figure:Silver Edition Wolverine (Toys R us Exclusive)
Height:6.00 inches
Here's a fan request that I've recieved a few times: "Create a Wolverine with magnetic removable claws." Here you go! It's basically the new 'silver edition' Wolverine exclusive from Toys R Us with Fixit Sculpted ears and boot fins like my MvC2 Wolvie. This time I wrapped the claws in wire, positioned them, then soldered them together, sculpting the casings on the back with fixit. I found flat rare earth magnets and glued them to the back of Wolvie's hands next. Then I swiped some regular non-extended-claw casings (I think they were from a stealth Wolvie) and glued a small piece of metal to the bottom of those so you can swap between claws or the empty casings. The magnets hold strong and you don't have to worry about losing individual claws now as they come off in a set of three.

I love the shading! I would never be able to give a figure that effect so I just lightly shade it with a pencil. It makes it look like the 90's cartoon version.

another epic creation. I have a question though I have researched and can not find those particular needles, is there a way you could help locate some? I would love to do what you did here but use those and the hair pins cut for 2 sets and claws withdrawn. thanks for any help and of course great customs.
