Video Review of the Hot Toys MMS187 The Last Stand Wolverine
Another shinning example of Hot Toys Craftsmanship. Based on Hugh Jackmans portrayal of Wolverine in X-men: The Last Stand. A very well made 1/6 replica of the outfit from the movie, metal (sharp) claws and a cool base.
The head sculpt on the figure is fantastic, very high level of detail and paint work. A high level of contention with the sculpt is the expression, it is not very photogenic and tends to look very odd in photo and also in video. In person the sculpt looks great and with the right pose the teeth work very well. The likeness is pretty good in my opinion, though due to the expression it can appear to be off.
The articulation on the figure is great, though the suit can restrict it. With double jointed elbows and knees as well as a muscular true-type it can be put into most required poses. The suit mainly restricts the ab crunch and the head movement. The figure has fantastic range at the ankles but they also tend to be very weak so using one of the stands is advised. The figure has standard hand articulation but the glove design hinders the movement as the cuff is very long and quite often pops off when moving the wrist. It can be very annoying.
Parts count is low. Though it’s seems high due to the inclusion of the sentinel head figure stand. The stand looks great and does it’s job, but it isn’t screen accurate and it tends to has a somewhat ‘cheap’ feel. It come with a pair of relaxed hand on in box and also close with a pair or fists and a pair of clawed hands. But that’s it… An extra head would have been great and padded out the price a bit.
Overall its a great figure and I do recommend it weather you are a fan of the film or not.
