Discover Wolverine Origins with Hot Toys

From the pages of Marvel's X-Men comic came Wolverine, a mutant who possesses the ability to regenerate damaged or destroyed areas of his cellular structure at a rate far greater than that of an ordinary human.

In addition, Wolverine also possesses superhumanly acute senses, making him capable of seeing things at a maximum distance greater than a normal human’s. His hearing is enhanced in a similar manner, and he is able to recognize people and objects by scent, even if that person or object is hidden. Wolverine can use these enhanced senses to track any creature with an impressive degree of success.

His entire skeletal structure, including his claws, has been artificially bonded to the nearly indestructible metal Adamantium. As a result, Wolverine’s bones are virtually unbreakable, and his claws are capable of cutting through almost any substance depending on its thickness and the amount of force he can exert.

His role, played with success by the australian actor Hugh Jackman in the big screen, was acclamated by worldwide public. In this last movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine we entered in depth in his tragic story and birth, knowing about his past and his first enemies. Story that will be continued in coming months with a second part we recently informed in our news section.

And as usual Hot Toys focussed their attention in the fierce heroe giving us an accurate vision of what we could see in the screen, an amazing collectible to be delivered at the end of this year that... well, no more words and pay attention to the image gallery:

1/6th scale Wolverine Xmen: Origins collectible figure
