Wolverine is surely one of Marvel's best-loved Super Heroes, probably as a result of Hugh Jackman's portrayal of him in the X-Men movies. It's great, therefore, that LEGO has released a Wolverine set in this first wave of Marvel sets, even though (as far as I know) there isn't a new X-Men movie out this year.
6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown features 3 minifigs: Wolverine, Deadpool and Magneto, a helicopter and a motorbike. I'll hopefully get to build the 'copter later today.
I think it's a great representation of Hugh Jackman although the hair is perhaps a little too pointy in the corners. His blades, that attach like those in the Prince Of Persia sets, look suitably vicious. The yellow jump suit appears to be reasonably accurate, if the Marvel directory is anything to go by (and I guess it should be!)
Magneto looks great in red and purple, and features a new helmet.
Deadpool is pretty cool, too. He comes with two ninja swords (not shown) in addition to this Alien Conquest blaster.
I am not a Marvel expert by any means but having researched the characters in the Marvel directory, it looks as if LEGO has done an excellent job of representing them in minifig form.
Update: I've put photos of the helicopter on flickr.
