The great thing about the Marvel Select Wolverine movie figure from 2013 was the fact it came with 3 heads and 3 hand options. I wanted to make the most out of all three head options, and this is my second Wolverine after the Funeral Scene Logan from The Wolverine.


This figure dovetails nicely with the Nick Fury custom I made as all the spare parts from that go to building this figure. I took the Marv torso and legs and into this placed the Expendable Hale Caesar arms. The holes in the Marv torso were a little small, but they can be drilled larger and then when heated the arms will pop into place.

The arms and neck section were painted in a mix of Flesh 35 and Leather 84 in about a 2:1 ratio. This made the flesh a darker, more tanned tone to match the face as best I could.


The neck peg from Marv is a little small for the Wolverine head, but if you pack the socket on the Wolverine head with some tissue it will slot into place and be fully articulated.

The back of the Marv vest used to connect to Marv's coat so there was a large hole left over. You could leave this if you wanted but I mixed up some green stuff putty and filled it and did my best to smooth it out and match the pattern of the vest. This was then over painted in white.

Marv came with a crucifix round his neck, and I used this to make the Dog Tags by cutting out two shapes of card and overlaying these on the cross. These were then painted silver.


I originally was going to simply have Logan with plain hands. But thanks to a tip on Facebook I made the claws by cutting out lengths of flat metal from 6 hair pins (bobby pins). These had the rubber coating scraped away and were snipped flat. I then took some spare hands (origin unknown) and warmed them in hot water. The pins can then be secured in a grip and slid into the soft rubber between each knuckle. When cooled I snipped each one to length. These were still painted to give them a high sheen metallic finish.
