This has to be the absolute ultimate version of Logan! I’ve seen it touted as a “Classic” version of Wolverine, but the outfit isn’t the original togs that he donned back in his first appearances in The Incredible Hulk or even in Giant-Sized X-Men. It’s still a sweet looking figure. We’ve all been fooled by looks before, but I’ve heard some great things about Revoltech.
I love the retro style figures that the Vintage Studio creates. Done in the Kenner style, these figures are not as much of a What-If, and more of a continuation of the original line. The Rebel Trooper was a glaring omission to the vintage line, and now you can own one (or four) to add to your collection. The price is a bit steep at $30, but considering the amount of work they put into the figures it’s a steal, plus the quality is apparent. Check out their website, it is a visual treat.
This last week I finally picked up my very first Kenner X-Wing. This isn’t the 1978 version, it’s the one from 1979. It has the, what seems like the much maligned, “Battle Damage” stickers applied, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The cannons are a bit bent, and the cockpit will open but will fall off if you push it back too far. I had the Millennium Falcon, a TIE Interceptor, a Twin-Pod Cloud Car, the AT-AT (@@), and an AT-ST when I was a kid. I never owned an X-Wing. Later on I picked up a Micro Collection one, along with some Micro Machine versions. I sold them all, along with a great 2003 Dagobah version that I picked up just for resale (oh the regrets, but it was how I made a living for a while).
