If you missed out on the SDCC exclusive Animated Wolverine figure, there’s a second chance! That is if you liked Logan’s costume color choice in the 1980s. Mondo is issuing a variant of the Wolver-Meme figure, but he is sporting his yellow and brown outfit this time.
The 1/6th scale feral mutant comes with all the accessories of the SDCC version, including Morph’s head, an unmasked head, the framed image of Scott and Jean, and various swappable hands. He is currently going for $200 with an estimated release date of Spring 2022.
Called the Pryde of the X-MEN version, this release pays homage to Logan as he appeared in the pilot cartoon from 1989. Sadly, he does not come with a voice chip replicating that weird Australian accent the showrunner gave him for some reason.
Before he donned the yellow & blue spandex, Wolverine rocked a yellow & brown look in 1989’s X-Men: The Animated Series pilot. We pay tribute to this original aesthetic with our “Pryde of the X-Men” variant, complete with four swappable heads, retracted and extended claws, lightning claw energy effect, a glossy photo of Cyclops and Jean Grey, which can be swapped out with a photo of your choosing as well, and, of course, a turkey leg.
I’m digging these 12″ animated X-MEN figures. Sure, we’ve only seen Wolverine so far, but think of the possibilities. Gambit, Storm, and Rogue would be perfect for this scale. With my luck, the next figure will be Jubilee or Professor X. Listen, Xavier is cool in his own way, but the man’s biggest enemy is a flight of stairs. As a result, he doesn’t make for a cool large-scale action figure.
In fact, I’m sure he’s faking his handicap. Check out the Pryde of the X-MEN pilot below and see if you can catch when Xavier uses his legs.
