Mondo Reveals a Sad Wolverine Action Figure From X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES
Mondo has announced a hilarious new X-Men: The Animated Series 1/6th scale action figure of sad Wolverine. Yep, Mondo went ahead and created an action figure based on a meme featuring Wolverine lying in his bed gazing longingly at a photo of Jean.
Hector Arce and Michael Bonanno, the creative directors for toys and collectibles over at Mondo, shared the following statement:
“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 blown everywhere! That intro song hooked us right from the beginning and kept us coming every Saturday for months and months excited to see what happened to Wolverine and the X-Men. We are so proud to present the first 1/6 scale figure for a series that has captured our imagination since our youth. The theme song is still stuck in our heads, years later. Of course you have to launch the series with Wolverine, but we felt that it’d be even more fun to recreate this specific scene-turned-meme. Creating this diorama for our SDCC at Home Limited Edition was truly the most fun we’ve had here at Mondo Toys and Collectibles and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
The Wolverine figure comes with four heads that you can swap out, multiple sets of hands with retracted and extended variants of his claws. There’s even a lightning claw energy effect. There’s a glossy photo of Cyclops and Jean Grey, and then, of course, a turkey leg. 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.
