Wow, this guy took me a while to make. Last year, I've bought the Marvel Select Wolverine figure specifically to turn him into a Ultimate Wolvie. I don't know about you, but I'm a fan of Hugh Jackman. I think he's a great Logan and has a lot of fun making these movies. So of course I wanted him on my shelf! But not that bland shirtless-cargo pants combo.
My first idea was to take the upper half of the MS figure and combine it with NECA David-8's lower half. But that didn't work out – Dave's hips and legs were too small. And on top of that, Wolverine doesn't have a waist joint and I didn't have the patience to cut him in half. Tha
That's where this custom was for almost a year – nowhere. Just this week I came back with a vengeance. True to my older customs, I wanted to make him with what I had in the fodder bin. I had a million different ideas and only one guidline – to use as much of the MS fig I could. It took some time but I finally came up with this:

head, arms and shoulder joints – MS Wolverine
torso – NECA Duke Nukem
hands – ROML Wolverine
crotch, belt and disc joints – NECA Dutch
legs and hip balls – MS movie Hawkeye
boots – ML4 Punisher

I think that's a rather nice looking figure. The claws are a custom cast I got from the Casting Cave. They're beautiful and I couldn't not use them. Plus, bone claws make for a more interesting look than the usual adamantium ones.
As always, the figure was painted and shaded a LOT. I've kept pure black only on his boots, gloves and belt.
Hope you like him!

Wow, you keep making the customs I dream I was capable of. Ultimate wolverine is my favourite wolverine outfit.

Amazing job!

I've wanted to do something like this with my marvel select wolverine figure but I'm too much of a novice to sculpt cloths on him.

Maybe one day.

Great job!

No, I don't use any sealers. I just leave a lot of paint on the edges of those stickers. First make a mess painting them entirely all the way to the space under them, and then I finish the edges to look nice. I've never had any stickers come off.

Yeah, that would've been a lot better, Matt Man.

This is awesome! I really wish he had worn this in the first three X-Men movies instead of that horrid leather outfit...

Thanks very much for the kind words, friends!

Always felt the Ultimate Wolvie uniform would look good on Hugh Jackman's Wolvie and you've proved that right. This a great custom.
Shinigami - Monday, June 23, 2014
Exactly! They should've just given him this uniform and it'd look way better than those fugly leather suits.
Carnivac - Monday, June 23, 2014
Oh I wasn't saying that. I like the leather suits myself (far better than his yellow comics costume) but it would have been nice to seen him in this sorta thing at least once.

Wooow bro, this is hands down my favorite Wolverine by far. I love his overall look and execution of parts. I would really love this in my collection, let me know.if you are willimg to let it go. P.s. I really love that you added the stripe elements from the classic Wolverine.
Shinigami - Monday, June 23, 2014
Those stripes are on his original Ultimate costume. Not always in this form, because they're drawn differently by different artists, but they're there. I was inspired by Leinil Francis Yu.
Unfortunatelly I'm not selling him but you can always ask me to make one for you!

Oh Man that's Sweet!!!!!!!
Shinigami - Friday, July 4, 2014
Cool that you like him!

great looking wolverine
Shinigami - Friday, July 4, 2014
Thank you, NSP.

One of the most awesome Wolverine customs, especially since this is the uniform that I like the most, hasn't been done this well before! Nice work on those lines of the outfit!
Shinigami - Monday, June 23, 2014
Thanks, glad you like him! Those tiger stripes are actually stickers, I use them all the time for symbols, most recently on my Hawkeye. It's way easier to cut out 6 stickers than to paint 6 symmetrical designs.
kda87 - Sunday, August 24, 2014
Do you use some kind of sealer to make sure the stickers won't come up?
