Wolverine is usually considered to be the most formidable and cranky mutant of all the X-Men, but now, he’s the most cuddly. As of Wednesday, September 11, Build-A-Bear Workshop now offers a version of Wolverine and this isn’t your depressed sad-sack Logan version of Wolverine, this is the classic version of the character chilling out in his yellow-and-blue super suit.
Called the “Legendary Wolverine” this Build-a-Bear is, in fact, a bear, dressed as a human who goes by the name “Wolverine.” Let’s not get it twisted: This isn’t a Build-a-Wolverine dressed as the character Wolverine; that would be confusing. This is a bear, who, presumably has a skeleton of pure adamantium, also has his claws out all the time. But, we’ve got in on good authority that these claws are tickly and soft.
However, if you want to head to your local mall and hit up a Build-A-Bear in real life, you won’t find the new Legendary Wolverine there. Right now, the Wolverine Build-A-Bear is only available online.
If you’re in the U.S. you can order the Legendary Wolverine at the Build-A-Bear right here.
There’s no word yet if other X-Men will become Build-A-Bears, but if they do, it seems like Storm is the next one, right?
Also, the best thing about this Wolverine Build-A-Bear: on one of its feet is the phrase “Best At What I Do, Bub.” If you want to give your kid their own personal catchphrase, isn’t doesn’t get much better than that.
