Before we get into this weekís reviews, Iím on vacation all this week, driving through scenic Utah, so if you happen to see me, give me a holler! Iím wrote these reviews last week, so if the meta-game changes over the weekend, donít hold it against me! Not that itís likely to change, mind youÖIím just saying.

This latest version of Wolverine is from the Ultimates series, and Iíll be damned if I know anything about him, except that I THINK he knows his name is James Howlett. Oh and he started off as a bad guy in Magnetoís Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Plus, he needs a new tailor.

I have to say, the Rookie Ultimate Wolvie is pretty weak, cheap BCF is abundant in Indyclix, so 52 points for BCF isnít going to float my boat, not with those low stats. The Exp isnít much better, though now you get Super-Senses added to the mix. Stats are still too low, and that gets worse with the Veteran version. In fact, NONE of the four Wolverineís are tournament worthy IMO, and for the life of me, I canít imagine why youíd want to play any of these even in friendly games. The only thing I can think of is that you MIGHT want the Ultimate X-men TA, which gives you +1 attack, but really, thereís better figures out there.

The REV sets have been selling for a maximum of $10 recently, thatís really high for a 2-3-4 REV. Expect that to come down. The Level 6 LE has gone for as high as $45, and as low as $25. Since it is Wolverine, that seems about right, though the figure isnít as playable as it should be.

My Ratings: Playability first then Collectability

Rookie 2,2
Experienced 2,2
Veteran 3,2
LE 3,4

Next time: Wouldnít be the same if we reviewed Logan and forgot all about his arch enemy now would it?
