Sabretooth was originally portrayed as a non-powered serial killer but was later written as a mutant possessing bestial superhuman abilities, most notably a rapid healing factor, razor-sharp fangs and claws, and superhuman senses. He is a vicious assassin, responsible for numerous deaths both as a paid mercenary and for his personal pleasure. Although he first appears in Iron Fist he's most commonly associated with the X-Men in particular as an enemy of Wolverine
This figure is big. Not as big as Hulk, but Big. Heavy, tall, and wide this Sabretooth figure is truly comic accurate. It’s a durable figure that can take a heck of a beating, and dish one out as well. Packaged in the clear covered blister card you can see the Sabretooth Name going down the left side with the giant print of his claw marks on the bottom left. The background of the card is a comic book art splash. Sabretooth is packed fully visible with his his base, and accessories all fully displayed with the tab on the card to hang if you don’t want to open.
Once you remove the ungodly amount of tape and bands, and those stupid twist ties you have a pretty amazing figure. Very big and stiff. He moves in all the main spots. Legs, feet, hand, and arms all bend, the waist bens, as does the head. The head looks great. The steel blue mutant eyes wincing underneath the brown helmet, that matches the outfit and comic perfectly look menacing. Combined with the snarl that you can clearly see his fangs really add to the evil look. Everything is etched and shaded in. The blond hair and mutten chops look great as does the fur collar around the costume. You can see all of the over exaggerated muscles popping from underneath the outfit as well
A quick look at the back shows how the costume all matches perfectly. This is comic accuracy at its finest. I have the hands turned out to show the movement. The figure is articulate, just a bit stiffer than others primarily due to the size
The base is some type of industrial setting. It's features lots of removable mechanical style pieces. The best of those is the "Caution Do Not Enter" sign that is bent and twisted. My son loves using it to beat other figures senseless.
This is another great toy for play or display. Diamond Select makes the best designed, and most durable toys out there today. My son will not stop playing with these and I really don’t mind playing with them either
