10 Most Ridiculous Toy Biz Wolverine Action Figures
From toplessrobot, If you were a comic fan and a toy fan in the '90s, there was pretty much only one company to turn to: Toy Biz. The company not only made the first Batman movie figures, but they'll always be bets remembered for having the Marvel license during the years of the mega-popular Spider-Man and X-Men cartoons (as well as the many Marvel cartoons that weren't that popular).
In the years and years that they had the Marvel toy license, Toy Biz made a significant portion of the Marvel universe -- but they kept coming back to popular characters like Wolverine, since they actually made money (shockingly, the Sugar Man figure was not a hit). Since Wolverine was the hottest character for most of that period of time, Wolverine figures account for probably 20 percent of the toys the Biz made, which means he, had both good figures made of him... and bad figures. Putting aside the slightly goofy-looking ones, and the ones that represent legitimate(-ly bad) comic book appearances, these are the 10 that made us scratch our heads the most.
