    I actually wouldn't know. My limited 1/6 collection is mostly Star Wars and doesn't include a lot, if any, of pleather and this is the first Mezco...and actually the first Wolverine of any size or price point I've liked enough to immediately go in on.

    I didn’t hesitate a second on this guy. I figured he would be loaded, but damn! More heads and accessories than I could have hoped for. I’m waffling hard on getting a second to keep displayed with some of the extras. I wonder how well that sentinel chunk will go with the Haslab sentinels I have on order.

    The main problem with a $150 wolverine like that is... I'll want a brown suit version too.

    Big figures always get a price bump even if it's re-use and I think they were probably figuring a low run. But yeah Thanos is stupid expensive regardless. I'm so Thanos'd out by now I passed on the $30 Marvel Legends haha. This Wolverine is a fantastic deal. 8 heads! If you didn't care about the first appearance ones you could probably get $50 at least selling them. I'm thinking of grabbing a second to display the first appearance heads, but basically sell everything but the body.

    I'm probably going to do 2 also and I basically have forgotten about my Haslab Sentinel order lol, the damaged one with this release should be pretty cool to have in a big display!

    Yeah, I want brown suit too but it doesn't need the same accessories and price tag. I'm sure they will figure out some other way to charge the same or more though.

    I'm sure that you can figure that out in your display @supervir2 and @DukeFett when it arrives.

    As Logan says "These walking tin can openers are no match for my blades" in one comic if I can remember. :D 

    A Danger Room re-creation? ;)

    Correction there @supervir2.. It's three Mez-con reveals not two.

    (1) Destro
    (2) Black Bends (Slugfest)

    and now Wolverine v.2 (#3)

    @DukeFett can verifiy this.

    my bad - thanks for the correction! I have a blind spot for their own IP releases.

    re: Wolverine - I’m confused by their “X” slash effect. It looks like the motion goes out in all directions rather than in two with a trailing effect behind. There are blade holes for all directions too. I get what they were going for but the execution didn’t quite get there.

    I'm thinking that the "X" slash effect is when Logan uses his blades to rip up the Tin Cans open. He even did this "X" effect on Megs in the Fatal Attractions storyline just before Megs rips the Adamanitium (sp) out of Logan in Wolverine #75 (and left Logan with the bone claws until there was a way to re-fuse the metal back into the bone from the Weapon X Project [even Deadpool/Wade West was from there as well.])

    Having one on order makes me swing back to something I was pondering a few weeks ago...do I buy more of his team mates?

    What a slippery slope I am stepping on to.

    It's listed on the bottom of the main pic on the pre-order page @fujishig. You just got to look at the multiple pics listed and use arrows to select the ones you want.

    I just posted the two main pics with the added stuff and the pre-orders link.

    I would have preferred the $80-$100 version without the bells & whistles. Hmmm

    Thanos is a larger figure with built-in electronics. Wolvie has the electronic base and a metric crap-ton of optional parts, plus comes in a tin. Roughly speaking, they even out.

    I'm not sure we've gotten the Rumble reveal, actually. I know which one you're referring to, but that one had normal skin tone and white hair with beads in his beard.

    I totally forgot he even had electronics. After getting Bluto I'm not exactly excited for Thanos as far as his articulation goes. The torso is one giant chunk. Gladiator Hulk was $125 I think and is the same body Bluto uses and Thanos will use I think.

    Ah, I see them. I didn't scroll far enough, there is so much yellow Wolvie goodness that I thought the pictures were on a loop... :)

    @borgified - my mistake, I thought you were referring to the Toyzfair event reveals only.
