GENTLE GIANT STUDIOS
Back in the 1980's very little was known about the origins of the fan-favorite X-Man known as Wolverine. The mutant from the Great White North was the breakout star of Giant Sized X-Men #1 and even though his past was shrouded in mystery, his popularity with fans continued to grow with each issue. In 1980 X-Men artist John Byrne introduced the new brown and tan costume in The Uncanny X-Men #139. Fans reacted favorably to the changes and Wolverine stayed in the now iconic brown costume for over a decade in the pages of the X-Men comic book. Gentle Giant celebrates almost 45 years of Wolverine with our newest 1:8th scale Collector's Gallery Statue. The statue comes with real metal claws, his mask pulled back to reveal his face and is inspired by the cover art for Old Man Logan Vol. 2 #22.  The 1980's Wolverine Collector's Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios and every one comes hand numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
