"I'm the best at what I do!" - Wolverine
So this one has been a long time a'comin'. I always wanted a brown Wolverine as it is my favorite look for the character. Ever since I played the 80's X-Men arcade I wanted a brown Wolverine to call my own. The Marvel Legends one was decent but I had a very specific look in mind. Everything from the mask (and Logan), height, claw length, and shape of the boots and belt had to be perfect. Ever since I got onto figure realm and started reading the tutorials on how to disassemble and reassemble, paint and add metal claws to a Wolvie, I knew that one day I would make my own. And here he is!
I took apart the (very rare and expensive) ML Series 6 Wolverine, resculpted the boots, added some DCUC hands with custom metal claws, and TB X-Men Wolverine heads, painted and put back together to get the guy to look just right. I also added a DCUC Batman belt with capsules removed and added some sculpt to the buckle. I wanted the paint to look just right and the end result is one I'm most pleased with.
Since I this guy came out so perfect and I never really owned an X-Men team I decided I would go ahead and make both the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Keep your eyes out for 'em. I'll be posting those soon.
I also dedicate this figure to my cousins in Texas. (Irving, Hugo, Junior and Uriel)
