    Surprise surprise. Local hobby shop has the wave 2 in stock, but only 1 per figure. I was going to get Black Spider-Man and Wolverine but Spidey is sold out. So I get Wolverine only...

    Vehicle Mode

    Our favorite Canadian Mutant transforms into a yellow and blue 'rally truck'. Unlike Spidey's bike mode, the yellow and blue work pretty well together. Wolverine is quite heavy in vehicle mode and quite large too. Well worth the price.

    Transformation is fairy complicated. Pretty satisfying transforming it into mech mode. However, transforming back to vehicle mode is a bit hard, although not Venom level of hard. Some parts just don't want to stay together. Might need a few tries to get the transformation right

    Mech Mode

    With claws

    Instant recognizable as Wolverine. Its design is almost identical with its comic version. Good articulations, no loose joints. A bit difficult to make it stand straight because of its small feet, but no problem in some action pose. Wolverine has pop-out claw feature. Press a button and the claw will put up. Neat. Too bad the claw is made in one single plastic instead of 3 separated ones.

    Overall, another nice addition to the line. Good vehicle mode, nice transformation and Wolverine himself as the mech mode! Recommended!

    Looks pretty good. Any chance you could take a picture with him next to a TF?

    Nice review. I've seen wave 1 figures in the stores before, they're heavy for sure.

    I wish they did something with the tires on his back, like turned them sideways to bulk up his shoulders.

    Can't wait to get this guy and Animated Shockles.

    Isn't the mech's color scheme reminscent of Wolverine's Astonishing X-Men costume

    When is this guy supposed to come out?

    Coicedentally, the first exclusive look at it came almost a week after the latest X-men toon popped up in Wolvie's home nation.

    Ooh, bigger than Prowl. That moves the Marvel Crossovers a place or two up my "want" list.

    Thanks for the review, it answered all my questions and then some. ^_^

    Wolvie'll definitely be the first Marvel Crossover I pick up now.

    Neat.
    But I can't help but wonder if they'll do a redeco into his Brown costume...
    That'd definitely make for a better-looking truck mode.

    Good review. This is the only Marvel TF I've considered getting. If there was a sweet Sabertooth I'd love to get both
