It had better look really damn good, and not like Wolverine only came out of retirement and donned his costume again to fight his way through the McDonald's crowd on buy 1, get 1 free Big Mac day. :oops:

Seriously, since I've purchased Wolverine stuff before, I got an email about this new release, and I wouldn't pay $20 for this hot mess, let alone $1155. :eek:

More info needed. How big is this thing? What is it made from?
Not that I would buy it but it doesn't look bad, classic wolverine.

Here's the page with all the specs: https://www.sideshow.com/collectibles/marvel-wolverine-pcs-909387

It's a decent sized statue, at 24" tall and 42 lbs. The sculpt of the PCS edition of both Wolverine and the base just doesn't look good at all IMO.

However, Sideshow's Premium Format version which was smaller at 15.5" high is such a nicer looking piece, and is 1/2 the price (I own this one). https://www.sideshow.com/collectibles/marvel-wolverine-sideshow-collectibles-300543

Why would his clothing be so form fitting as to depress into the space between his pecs, and morph to his furrowed brow line? :\

For $1155 , I figure they would make his claws and forearms the same length. Those claws look way too long to retract.

Yeah, it's bad on so many different levels.

They (PCS) have the ability to make some good looking products (like their Transformers lineup), but this Wolverine sculpt should have never left the design phase as it's really, really bad. :oops:

For close to $1200, it had better be really sharp looking product.

That's a rip. I get some cool collectibles from kidrobot, but nowhere near that kind of $$$

At that price, just buy an 8k-resolution jumbo-sized 3D printer & print out whatever you want lol:
