We finally have a legitimate photograph of Hasbro’s upcoming San Diego Comic Con 2009 exclusive Wolverine with retractable claws Mighty Mugg thanks to ActionFigurePictures.com. (link) The Blot had some serious reservations about this year’s Marvel Comics SDCC exclusive Mighty Mugg when it was first announced, but I think it looks pretty cool! It’s obviously a homage to this summer’s quasi-blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and it actually resembles Hugh Jackman (at least it does slightly if you squint while looking at the figure). I do wish they hadn’t tried to copy everything about Jackman’s movie version of Wolverine because I could have done without his big shiny belt buckle.
There has been no official announcement yet on the SDCC 2009 exclusive Wolverine Mighty Muggs’ run size or price, but I’d be willing to wager it will retail for somewhere between $15 and $25. For those of you unwilling to wait until the figure’s release at San Diego Comic Con, there might be one available already on eBay (and a SDCC exclusive Optimus Prime Mighty Mugg as well).
