And speaking of safety, Sideshow Collectibles is selling a prop replica of the Wolverine claws used by Hugh Jackman (or his stunt double) in the X-Men films. Instead of Adamantium, the replica claws are made from solid machined aluminum and include the stainless steel palm attachments which enabled the actors to wear the claws on set. Of course the Sideshow Collectibles website makes sure to mention that the claws come “permanently affixed to the custom, sturdy wood “X” display plaque…” but there’s little doubt in my mind that whoever buys a set of these replicas will do everything they can to find a way to remove them. (Why else would you buy them?)
The Wolverine claws replicas will be available from Sideshow Collectibles for $149.99, but at the moment they can only be pre-ordered. And besides coming with the risk of cutting yourself up real good like, they also come with a full color Certificate of Authenticity since only 500 sets will be produced.
