This Hulk needs no introduction since he is probably the one Hulk most people in America, if not the world, know. He is the Hulk that proves he is worthy of the big screen and can kick butt in the box office. Personally I felt the second Hulk movie was really good and deserving of more praise then it got…but he definitely rocked in The Avengers. And my spider sense tells me we will get plenty more of him in the next Avenger’s film.
This figure stands tall alongside his other Marvel Select figures. Taller in some cases. He is around 8-9 inches tall and is somewhat heavy. A fair amount of articulation but due to how he is sculpted it has either limited range or it doesn’t look good in certain poses. The paint job could have been better, but it will do. There appears to only be a single dark wash to bring out the veins and subtle details in the muscles. Not much else. The pants are a single dark color (purplish brown kinda). The face is also well sculpted though I’m not sure it’s exactly the same face we see in the movie.
Despite my reservations with this figure I really do like it and its among my favorites from the Marvel Select Line. This figure is easily first place of all the Avenger’s Hulk figures, with the Walmart exclusive being a second place. As of this writing he is fairly easy to find online and at comic shops.
He currently retails for $25. I purchased mine for around the same price.
eBay has him for between $25-30. (3/3/14)
This figure is about 4 inches tall (6-7 inches top to base). The figures in this titanium series were not meant to be posed or removed from their “chambers”. So as you see him is how he is meant to be. His pose is static. His feet are secured to the floor with screws. A clear glass cylinder covers the green giant. The base is grey plastic.
Now the figures are advertised as die cast figures and this is partially true. The figure is fairly heavy. However, without touching it I can’t be sure. The upper torso and arms appear genuinely to be metal. However, his legs seem to be shiny plastic. This does not necessarily detract from the look of the figure. but if it was fully metal I might be more impressed. The sculpting is very nice and the paint job pretty simple. This figure was made to show off it’s metal sheen, not a realistic depiction of the character.
The plastic dome has kept the figure in near perfect condition. But since mine was purchased used I have noticed slight scuffing on the arms where the dome has rubbed against him. Overall this is a neat piece and a nice option for anyone who wants a statue of the hulk without shelling out for a huge maquette. But he is quite small in comparison. If you want a colored metal hulk…this is your guy.
The figure was released back in 2006 or thereabouts and retailed for around $25.
I was able to purchase mine on eBay for around $20. Currently on eBay he is going for between $15-50 (2/4/14).
Happy New Year Hulksters! Sorry about not posting anything lately. The holidays were hectic and life since then hasn’t slowed down much. I will make it a point to add more reviews of old and new Hulk figures in my collection soon. In the meantime I thank you all for your support in the past months. I hope all your new years resolutions work out better then the Hulk’s. 2014…here goes nothing.
This is another unique Hulk figure you won’t find easily…or in most comic shops. This figure was released in a Lego set called ‘Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout’. He came complete with the actual Helicarrier and figures of Hawkeye, Loki, and Thor. The set was released in April 2012 and retailed for $50. So unless you want the whole set you will need to pursue sites like eBay for a Hulk sold separately.
The figure itself is about 4 in tall making it bigger then most Lego mini-figures. There are apparently two variants of this figure…the version pictured here from the Helicarrier set and an Avenger’s Assemble version which has purple pants. I have never seen the purple pants version and will see if I can get my hands on it.
His arms can rotate at the shoulder and the hands can turn at the wrist. Other then that the figure is pretty static. Being a Lego figure he has a minimal paint scheme and design. However, he is still a neat little cartoonish version of the Hulk and a great addition to the collection. He is especially important if you are a fan of the latest Lego Marvel Superheroes Game which features this green beast. The best part of the game involved this guy in my opinion.
If you check out my earlier posts I have a video posted that Marvel made featuring this version of Hulk. So check it out.
This figure is going on eBay for between $20-40 (12/26/13). I managed to get mine for $22.
This guy has been making some epic videos of Hulk vs Superman. And aside from the amazing quality (which only gets better with each installment) he manages to keep it an even fight between the two. Who will win? Who knows! And with this level of intensity who cares?!? Let them duke it out forever…which may well just happen given these two heavy weights. If you like these go to the guys page and favorite them…demand more. Part three only released a couple weeks ago. Stay smashed!!
Well here he is boys and girl…Unleashed Hulk. Join me in drooling over all the little details. The veins…the skin…the sculpt…glorious…
This is an somewhat unusual thing to expect…being as this figure was a DISNEY STORE EXCLUSIVE!! You heard me right this figure…part of the Marvel Select line… is only available through a Disney Store. Nice job Disney. They are certainly making good on their purchase of Marvel. This figure is probably one of the best painted and sculpted Hulk figures out there. Now some have criticized the sculpt’s over abundance of veins (joined with the shades of green) making this figure look a little “swamp-thing” like. And perhaps I agree a little. However, this figure is a welcomed change from all the smooth sculpted, flat painted Hulk figures. This figure was meant to be faithfully adapted from the recent hulk comics. Figure was released in November 2012.
The figure is solidly constructed. The paint is incredibly layered and the sculpting is very detailed. I highly recommend this figure for any Hulk or Marvel Select collection. Articulation is aplenty (14 pts)..however the range of motion (like most Hulk figures) is limited due to his bulk. And of course…he is sporting blue..rather then the classic purple…pants.
As stated he is only available at the Disney store (although he may not be available anymore since I haven’t seen him in months). He retailed for around $25. On eBay he is currently going for between $35-60 (12/7/13).
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I am sure most of us will be stuffing our faces fuller then a zombie in a hospital. So with that in mind lets explore another hungry customer…Zombie Hulk.
This version of the Hulk is found exclusively in the Marvel Zombie storyline. And Hulk is arguably the hungriest customer on the planet. If you don’t believe me then I cite the moment when Hulk was the only one able to bite Silver Surfer’s head off and eat it’s gooey insides. He is a super zombie if there ever was one. With the strength and anger of the Hulk combined with the ravenous determination of a zombie…this guy is not someone to run into.
I recently procured this figure from an online auction.He was sold out of box making him relatively cheap. Which was fine. I was however upset that he did not have his custom base included as well. This base connected with other figures bases and included scraps of silver surfer. This figure was released April 2008 alongside other zombified heroes.
The figure has some weight to him although the torso is hollow. The articulation is aplenty but with limited range due to it’s physical size. The paint job is a tad messy but it goes along with the overall theme of the figure…so it is forgivable. For the most part though it is painted rather well. Very gory and rotten. However his hair is sculpted in a somewhat dumb manner. I would have preferred the flattened, bowl cut as seen in the comics. But I guess if that’s my only criticism then this figure is pretty sweet. Which it is. I highly recommend this figure for any collection. Just good luck getting it at a fair price.
I purchased him online out-of-box for around $32. In-box, online he goes for around $50-100.
