The latest issue of Previews magazine has Hasbro’s first series of Wolverine Legends figures listed, and they indicate these will be a Previews exclusive.
A PREVIEWS Exclusive! The mutant berserker Wolverine is one of Marvel Comics’ most popular characters, and now he and other members of the mutant family are recreated as 6″ action figures! In the Wolverine Legends line, collectors will find dynamic figures of Wolverine (with his claws popped), Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Sabretooth. Each figure features a costume based on the comics, and each figure comes with an additional piece for the Puck build-a-figure. Collect them all! Blister card packaging.
Though not 100% clear, this would indicate these figures will only be found at comic and specialty shops, or any place that orders through Diamond Distributors. In other words, it doesn’t look good that you will be seeing these figures at any of the big mass retail chains. Previews says these figures will be out in shops this coming September. If we get any official details about this from Hasbro we will be sure to pass that information on to you.
