Polar Lights® To Release 1:8 Scale Wolverine Snap Kit From Brand-New Sculpt

SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 06/01/2012 – Polar Lights®, a brand of Round 2, LLC, is excited to announce the release of an all-new 1:8 scale plastic model kit depicting popular Marvel character Wolverine! The model will be a snap-assembly kit with lots of options, making it easy to build for a modeler new to the hobby, but still a creative challenge for the seasoned builder.

“Wolverine has gained popularity since the ‘Bronze Age’ of comics to become one of Marvel’s most iconic characters,” said Senior Product Designer Jamie Hood. “We’ve captured his ferocious personality with every detail expected in a Polar Lights model kit.”

The kit depicts Wolverine in his first X-Men™ uniform, and will include two head options, one masked and one unmasked, as well as two styles of his trademark claws, allowing the builder to choose which version they’d like to create. The figure stands posed on a defeated Sentinel head, for a dynamic finished display piece.

Parts will be molded in yellow and chrome, and are designed for a snap assembly, providing a quick build for beginner modelers. Advanced model builders will enjoy choosing between the optional parts and working on the fine details in the figure and Sentinel base.  Polar Lights is creating this kit from an entirely new sculpt, so this will be a version of Wolverine that comic fans have never seen before!

Polar Lights’ Wolverine snap kit will be available in hobby shops or at in late 2012!
