In their first-ever 1/6 figure from X-Men: The Animated Series, Mondo is proud to unveil their uncanny recreation of the now-iconic meme of Wolverine in a limited edition collectible form. The team took great pains to capture Wolverine in this rare moment of repose, pining after his crush Jean Grey in a photograph. An item perfect to couch on a shelf alongside other Mondo Marvel merchandise and memorabilia, Mondo’s San Diego Comic Con exclusive Limited Edition will be available to pre-order on MondoShop.com on Friday, July 23 at 12pm CT.
“There were really only a handful of Saturday morning cartoons in the ‘90s that stood out amongst the rest,” say Mondo Creative Directors Toys & Collectibles Hector Arce and Michael Bonanno. “I think we all remember that first day we watched the first-ever episode of X-Men the Animated Series…sitting in bed or on our couches, excited and then….THAT song plays…little minds blown everywhere! That intro song hooked us right from the beginning and kept us coming every Saturday for months and months excited to see what happened to Wolverine and the X-Men.
“We are so proud to present the first 1/6 scale figure for a series that has captured our imagination since our youth. The theme song is still stuck in our heads, years later. Of course you have to launch the series with Wolverine, but we felt that it’d be even more fun to recreate this specific scene-turned-meme. Creating this diorama for our SDCC at Home Limited Edition was truly the most fun we’ve had here at Mondo Toys and Collectibles and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
This figure is priced at $200 and includes five heads (sad masked, neutral masked, angry masked, Logan unmasked, Morph head), the picture frame with Scott and Jean photo, a Thanksgiving Turkey leg, alternate hands including a pair with energy effect. Check out detailed pics below.
