Wolverine may be one of the deadliest X-Men, but he’s also one of the most adorable! Not on the big screen when he’s played by Hugh Jackman, or in the comic books that made him famous, but in the plush version! Yes, now you can own your very own Wolverine Build-A-Bear after the company announced they would be adding the character to their line-up of Marvel bears.
The company, which currently boasts Marvel bears such as Thanos, Captain America, and Thor, recently announced the addition of the most adorable version of Wolverine fans will ever see. "Known as one of the gruffest, most irascible, totally cynical and brooding heroes of the X-Men, Wolverine takes the stage as an online exclusive collector's item," reads Build-A-Bear Workshop's description.
"Complete with his classic costume and soft claws, he is ready to take on any opponent. Start a legendary new friendship with this ferocious, yet good-hearted furry friend and add this unstoppable mutant to your collection."

In fact, Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John actually acknowledged that a comment made by the character Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame where, when startled by seeing Rocket Raccoon, he says “At this exact second, I thought you were a Build-A-Bear,” actually boosted sales for the company. “(Sales) were further enhanced by Marvel’s generous and welcome nod to Build-A-Bear in the movie’s first 10 minutes. That’s just one more example of Build-A-Bear’s top culture presence and power,” John stated.
Unfortunately, Wolverine fans won’t be able to purchase the Wolverine Build-A-Bear at retail stores, as they’re only available for purchase online. The adorable bear is featured in the classic blue and yellow Wolverine suit and even features those signature claws, albeit these ones are much more child-friendly than Wolverine’s actual adamantium claws.
Build-A-Bear writes that “The gruff and brooding Wolverine is ready to claw his way into your collection! This no-nonsense furry friend is ready to fight any opponent who crosses his path with his built-in costume and lethal soft claws. Plus, his epic Wolverine paw pad makes this bear a must-have for collectors. Start a legendary new friendship with Wolverine and add this unstoppable mutant to your collection today!”
