Default The Wolverine merchandise

I think action figures were announced a few weeks ago. Can anyone post pictures or opinions on the toys ?

People have been discussing the recent reveal of these Wolverine related toys, though I don't know if these are the ones you're referring to.

The pics look comic related, not movie
compare the silver samurai armor to that set pic from a while back, and theyre quite different

Apparently there isn't going to be a dedicated movie toy line. Hasbro have announced two new Wolverine lines though "Legends" and "All-Stars" but so far all of the toys shown are comic related, not movie. They're shown here:

I wouldn't be surprised if the odd movie-likeness figure turned up in those lines though.

It will be a shame if the action figures are not based on the movie.

This seven-inch action figure, due out this fall, depicts Wolverine in a look straight out of the film and features 16 points of articulation as well as interchangeable hands and heads, sculpted by Gentle Giant! The figure comes with a detailed display base in display-ready Select packaging, with the movie art on the shelf reference panel. Visit http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/ for more.

Nice to see some merchandise is on the way. I hope they make a tie-in video game like the last one, I thought it was great.

Exactly, basically the last game but with ninjas and a cool boss fight with Silver Samurai etc. Shame it doesn't seem to be happening.

Yet another picture of the Marvel Select toy. With another alternate head, another set of none-clawed hands and a katana. From http://splashpage.mtv.com/2013/03/19...igure-diamond/ . There's also a video in the link but it doesn't really show anything the pictures don't.

I saw this action figure and the Mini-Mates at Forbidden Planet in NY tonight. I didn't get any of them (saving my money for NY Comic-Con next month), but it was the first time I've actually seen this stuff on sale anywhere.

I guess marvel wants to promate The Wolverine unlike first Class.Remember Fox only has the film rights.Animation as well as merchandising stays with them.

What?

So are you saying that tie-in merchandising doesn't come from FOX?

It must be a pretty complicated set up involving Fox, Marvel and Diamond Select Toys I guess.
