Poor Wolverine. Yes, the adamantium-clawed mutant is basically indestructible. But he still gets all mushy whenever he thinks of his crush, Jean Grey. Everyone who grew up with X-Men: The Animated Series in the ’90s remembers the scene where Logan pines away for Jean. All while staring wistfully at her photo. Decades later, that moment has become a meme that’s helped it live on for all time.
Well, now that iconic animated version of Wolverine has its own sixth-scale action figure. This sad Logan figure is coming from the good folks at Mondo in their first-ever sixth-scale X-Men toy. Mondo’s San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Limited Edition will be available to pre-order on MondoShop.com on Friday, July 23 at 12pm CT.
In this 1/6 scale recreation of the iconic moment from X-Men: The Animated Series, Wolvie is all nestled up in his bed. He comes with four swappable expressions. Also, retracted and extended claws and a lightning claw energy effect. Of course, there’s a glossy photo of Cyclops and Jean Grey as well. You can switch the photo out with one of your own choosing, should you wish for Wolverine to pine over you instead. And just like the cartoon, Logan comes with a turkey leg. For reasons. The Wolverine 1/6 Figure – Limited Edition SDCC Variant will set you back $200.
In a statement, Mondo’s Hector Arce and Michael Bonanno said, “There were really only a handful of Saturday morning cartoons in the ‘90s that stood out amongst the rest. I think we all remember that first day we watched the first-ever episode of X-Men the Animated Series. Sitting in bed or on our couches, excited and then… THAT song plays. Little minds were blown everywhere! That intro song hooked us right from the beginning. It kept us coming every Saturday for months and months, excited to see what happened to Wolverine and the X-Men.”
