The Wolverine (Film) - Statue Options 3

This one sheet was just released of the Silver Samurai:

    A Silver Samurai statue has yet to be produced.  This is understandable given that he has been somewhat of a fringe character in the mutantsphere.  Of course if The Wolverine winds up being great (possible?) then the popularity of the character could skyrocket and thus warrant some extra special attention in the statue world.  A chromed 1/4 scale Premium Format Figure from Sideshow collectibles would rock.  Of course a 1/6 scale chromed statue from Bowen Designs would also be very impressive.  Given his Japanese origin though, it would be almost inappropriate if the Japanese Marvel statue licensee Kotobukiya didn't junt on the Silver Samurai bandwagon.

     How this all plays out is yet to be seen given that the film doesn't come out until the end of June.  The above image is the first (impressionistic) glimpse into the character design for Silver Samurai.  I have a feeling he's going to be a very impressive feast for the eyes when he's finally revealed!
