In 1992, long time X-men writer Chris Claremont left the book and John Byrne and fan-favorite artist Jim Lee took over the creative duties for the popular comic. Jim Lee’s priority with his new art duties was getting Logan out of his brown costume and back into a variation of the blue, black and gold classic “tiger stripe” look. With the launch of X-Men Vol.2 Wolverine was back in his blue and gold costume by issue 4 and stayed with this costume for close to a decade into his X-Men Blue Team phase. The 92 Wolverine “tiger stripe” costume was also popularized for a generation because of the long-running X-Men Animated Series.
Gentle Giant celebrates almost 45 years of Wolverine with our newest 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery Statue. The Wolverine ‘92 is the second statue in our recently announced Wolverine Collector’s Gallery series. The Wolverine ‘92 Collector’s Gallery statue comes with real metal claws, an attitude of “being the best at what he does” and is inspired by the cover art for Old Man Logan Vol. 2 #23. The Wolverine ‘92 Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios and every one comes hand numbered with a certificate of authenticity.
