Taking Wolverine outside the box you can see all the details right away.

Wolverine comes with a an extra head (growling), a pair of open hands, a paid of gripping hands (For holding the sword), a pair of hands with the claws extended and the Muramasa Blade with its sheath.
Wolverine also comes with a Base and fight stand.
How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!
Wolverine's articulation includes the following:
Ball Jointed Head - allows you to swivel the head 360-degrees and tilt the head back and forth.
Ball Hinged Shoulders - gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.
Upper Bicep Swivel - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360-degrees.
Double Jointed Elbows - this allows you to bend the arm back to have the hands near the shoulders.
Ball Hinge Wrists - allows you to turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.
Torso Crunch - this cut lets you be able to bend the figure front and back at the torso.
Waist Swivel - this lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist, however, it is hindered by the costume.
Ball Jointed Legs - with this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion it is hindered by the costume a little bit.
Double Jointed Knees - joint allows you to bend the leg itself all the way back to the butt of the figure.
Ball Jointed Ankles - The ball joint allows you to turn the foot 360 degrees, it also lets you tilt the ankles a little bit.
How does this figures size compare to others?
This Wolverine stands about 6'25
1st up we have Wolverine standing next to the Marvel Legends (Apocalypse Wave) Wolverine.
Next up we have Wolverine standing next to Marvel Legends Old Man Logan and X-23
Normally this is where Baby Huey rates the figure, however with this being Mr. Maurer's figure we will let him take over the ratings for today.
Paint Job 4.5 /5
As with most Mezco figures the paint is spot on, there is no paint out of place. the paint on the arms for his hair really adds to the overall look of the figure.
Figure Sculpt 4/5
The sculpt of the figure is on point. He looks and feels just how a Wolverine figure should. The figure is the right size for what Wolverine has grown to be accepted as however, I feel that it could have been about a half inch shorter.
Posing / Durability 3.5/5
Mezco has given Wolverine a ton of articulation, so any pose you want to get Wolverine in you can do. However with the leather like material constant posing will definitely cause some damage to the costume.
Overall Score 4/5
Retail Cost: $80
