@MezcoToyz Announces Fall 2017 Exclusive: Yellow/blue Wolverine One:12 Figure
September 5, 2017
Without a doubt, Wolverine is one of the most iconic X-Men. His gruff personality and claws of adamantium have turned him into one of the most popular superheroes today, with an enormous fan base. That’s why we’re incredibly excited to announce this Fall Exclusive, Wolverine in his yellow and blue X-Men uniform.Perhaps his most iconic costume of all, Wolverine has worn it in countless comics, cartoons, and video games. It’s also one of the most requested One: 12 Collective figures we’ve ever gotten. That’s why it was an incredible experience getting to bring the the character and costume to the One:12 Collective format. Like previous One:12 designs, we took Wolverine’s costume and mixed it with a bit of real world grittiness, creating a figure and costume that could face combat in the real world. This can be seen in the all-terrain design of his boots, and strong combat shoulder pads.The yellow and blue Wolverine will include two cowled head sculpts and one uncowled head-sculpt. He’ll also include the mask of Ogun, a trophy of one of his greatest foes. No other One 12 Wolverine figures has included these additional accessories yet.The yellow and blue Wolverine will be available on our site for preorder next Wednesday, the 13th. As with all of our exclusives, he’ll only be available on our website or at our booth at NYCC at booth #1954, from Oct. 5th to the 8th. Until that happens, feel free to check out our behind-the-scenes photos below!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
