Diamond Select Toys’ Retro Wolverine Slashes Onto Shelves

dst-logo1Diamond Select Toys’ line of Mego style Marvel heros continues with the release of Wolverine.

Wolverine’s Logan accessories include a bomber jacket, jeans, tank-top, boots, clawed hands and a unique unmasked head sculpt. Wolverine’s brown costume comes with a sculpted masked head and open and closed claw hands. The set includes a vintage-style window box for the classic Wolverine figure, as well as a booklet about the history of Wolverine in comics and toys, all packaged in a displayable gift tray.

Each box set is limited to 3,000 pieces, and you can order today through your local comic shop, your favorite online retailer or diamondselecttoys.com. Wolverine is only the first all-new character planned for the line. The next to be released will be Thor – look for a preview at SDCC.
