Wolverine III: The blue of the costume is darker than the original
figure. He comes with the original pistol accessory molded in black and
blown up to proportional scale (NOTE: only Wolverine and Storm come with
the right accessories that were included with the original scale
figures). Claws do seem to retract and pop out like the original.
Articulation is identical to the original scale figure including "twist
waist." A very interesting choice of Wolverine figures to bootleg.
Official Toy Biz information states that Wolverine III is the rarest of
all the general release Wolverine figures. It is the figure that fetches
the most in most price guides for a Wolvie variant as well. Definitely
not the stereotypical Wolverine, which would probably be considered
Wolverine II (or Tiger Stripe Wolverine as it was dubbed for the
"Classics" line). All in all a damn good forgery here too.
