X-Men Origins: Wolverine Toys

X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie toy figures have reached our shores.



Following the Indiana Jones figure, Hasbros has made most of this movie figures at 3.75" instead of the usual 5". Is it because of the economy factor? If it is, why is it a dollar higher than the usual Starwars figures at retails stores in Singapore? That just does not make sense.

If you happen to be one of the many Wolverine fans around (I personally know a handful in my circles), you are going to eat your heart out! No lack of Wolverines! Comes with different outfit from the comic to movie version. Since it is the smaller version at 3.75", collectors will have a very good reason to collect them all.

If you can afford to pay more, you can get the Premium series with removable fabric clothing and dark-toned packaging.

Personally there are some figures in this series I would love to get my hands on. Make a guess? Those could be HOT and they ain't wolverine.

I want the Gambit figure too but haven't seen him around yet. He must be popular! :)

Deadpool looks like another favourite among collectors :D

I've seen all these figures here already. But they are not that good, the picture here makes them look a lot better than they really are.

Personally, I am not too fond of 3.75", I much prefer 6"+ figures. They usually have much better articulation and are just more fun to mess with.

@Juliana
Spot on! I wanted to get gambit and Deadpool. somehow I think these figures will be around for sometime. No rush.

@Jcee
I'm okay with 3.75" but for goodness sake, make much cheaper than 6" figures! The price difference are just a dollar or two. Not worth it. IMO 3.75 should go like $12 SGD. :D

Ya I think the price of the 3.75" is way too much! Here they sell for $10-11CDN, our 6" Spiderman and Ironman series are only $8CDN. So other than the characters I really like (like Ironman), I don't see myself collecting 3.75" figures.
