Hi there . I will like to start collecting some action-figures so I decided to start with Wolverine. Someone is selling an actionfigure and I can't identify the deteails of it and I need a pro to help me. He claims he is from Legends series but can't find it online so here is the pic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/62116546@N ... hotostream

Is this the original fig with claws only in one hand and some battle details on his armor ? and how much is this worth ?

That guy was actually a pre-Marvel Legends sculpt by Phil Ramirez. It later was chopped up and reworked to become the original ML Wolverine. Toy Biz DID release him like this too, with the "come here" hand and the less articulation... I think as part of a 2-pack that might have been a retailer (Toys R Us?) exclusive.

/\ Everything Julius said is 100% correct
This was part of a 2 pack, with a movie wolverine, not released in the US, it came out in Canada, and perhaps Europe.
I got mine from a store in Canada. I believe there was also a set with movie & comic Toad as well.
Hope this helps!

The only "good" version of Wolverine is the one that you like looking at and playing with best. No one else can answer that question for you.

If the price is one that you feel is acceptable and you enjoy that particular figure, then go for it. If not, keep looking.

Simple as that.

My personal favorites are the first appearance (screaming mouth) and the Astonishing X-Men Marvel Legends versions. However, I do own the one you've shown, and I am very fond of it :)

Thanks for the info again , the fig it's ok but I decided to buy a version with claws on both hands. Because I can't find any in my country I will search right now on Ebay and maybe I will find something... If you know any other places/sites selling action-figures please tell me ( just like Bricklink where you can find only LEGO there)
