While Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men films has been excellent, longtime fans of the comic book know that he is a more murderous character than the one dominating multiplexes worldwide. That does not mean he does not have his loyalties, humanity and ability to quell his berserker rage, but he certainly brings a higher body count on the page than on the screen. So for those fans who like the original Logan best, Gentle Giant has created a bust just for you (as seen below). Due out in the third quarter of 2012, their Wolverine Mini Bust showcases the legendary Marvel Comics character with veins popping, muscles bulging and adamantium claws extended aggressively. Add a menacing grimace to his face, and you’ve got a classic Wolvie pose.
The Wolverine Mini Bust will be cold cast in hard, durable poly-stone, and the limited edition item — retailing for $70, with dimensions of 7″ x 4.75″ x 4.5″ — will come hand numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. It will certainly make a nice addition to your home collection, although at work it can also send the message that you’re not one to piss off. Snikt!
