The Marvel Select Origin Wolverine action figure is a figure based on the X-Men character Wolverine, produced by the U.S company Diamond Select Toys.

Background

The figure is based on the character of Wolverine as portrayed in the six-issue comic book series ‘Origin’, which ran from November 2001 until March 2002.

The series explores the origins of the character, which had previously remained a mystery since the first appearance of Wolverine during the 1970s. The character himself is unable to remember much of his past, and the mystique surrounding Wolverine’s past was one of his defining characteristics.

Figure design and appearance

Like all Marvel Select figure, the Origin Wolverine features a large, detailed display base. The figure is shown running barefoot alongside two wolves, wearing just a tattered pair of trousers on a base featuring tree roots and the woodland floor. The character’s original bone claws are seen protruding from his knuckles, and it comes complete with three wolves (two designed to stand on the base, with the third free-standing).

The figure is articulated at the waist, shoulders, elbows, wrists, neck and ankles, and is hunched over so although built to a 7” scale it only measures 4 3/4" tall.
