IGN can exclusively reveal the official first look at Mondo’s San Diego Comic-Con 2021 merchandise, including a 1/6 figure of one of Wolverine’s most iconic memes from X-Men: The Animated Series.
The Wolverine figure is the first-ever 1/6 figure from X-Men: The Animated Series, and the team at Mondo “took great pains to capture Wolverine in this rare moment of repose, pining after his crush Jean Grey in a photograph.” For those who wish to see the meme’s origins in action, just check out the 8:13 mark in Season 1 Episode 5 of X-Men: The Animated Series, which is available on Disney+.

“There were really only a handful of Saturday morning cartoons in the ‘90s that stood out amongst the rest,” say Mondo Creative Directors Toys & Collectibles Hector Arce and Michael Bonanno. “I think we all remember that first day we watched the first-ever episode of X-Men the Animated Series…sitting in bed or on our couches, excited and then….THAT song plays…little minds blown everywhere! That intro song hooked us right from the beginning and kept us coming every Saturday for months and months excited to see what happened to Wolverine and the X-Men.”
Mondo’s Wolverine 1/6 Figure – Limited Edition SDCC Variant will be available for $200 on MondoShop.com on Friday, July 23 at 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm BST.
