Hasbro gives the fans a Weapon X they can love

For the longest time, the story on how Wolverine got the adamantium bonded to his was a mystery. Such a traumatic event that not even Wolverine himself remembers. Then in 1991, in Marvel Comic Presents #72-84, writer/artist Barry Windsor-Smith, told us the story on how it came to be. Windor-Smith’s art was visually stunning in this series and created a kind of iconic look of Wolverine during his time with Weapon X.

We did get a Weapon X action figure when Toy Biz was making the Marvel Legends. Now it’s really cool Hasbro has given us a newer one.

I’m loving this figure. Hasbro has truly captured the essence of Windor-Smith’s art. Extremely well done. All the little touches like the wires and controls hanging off of Wolverine is really cool. The headgear just looks awesome. Nice touches with the paint as well. I can’t believe Hasbro put chest hair on Weapon X. Just wow!

Weapon X  also comes with an alternate head. This one is of a rage-filled Weapon X. Again, just captures Windsor-Smith’s art.  It comes off and on very easily.

Finally, he comes with Caliban’s right leg for the Build-A-Figure piece.

I am seriously loving this figure. I always loved the Weapon X story so I just love this figure.

Many thanks to Hasbro for sending us Weapon X!

You can find Weapon X at retail stores or you can buy directly from Hasbro Pulse.
