Despite the name of this figure only being called ‘Grey Hulk’ it can be plainly seen he has more going on then just that. And by more I mean the Jacket, Hat, Pants and Shoes. This Hulk is Mr. Joe Fix-It. For a short time the Hulk worked in Las Vegas as a bouncer and hit man for mob bosses. And he was really good at it too. This Hulk is not as strong as his Green counterpart, or perhaps his pure Grey version, but he is arguably one of the smartest incarnations. If nothing else, he is the most ruthless and sadistic of the transformations. He is aware of his actions and delights in causing pain and destruction. He enjoys making money and hooking up with girls. Some would say he is the expression of Bruce’s teenage side.
The figure discussed here is not the best Mr. Fix-it figure out there, but there are so few it’s worth mentioning. He was released in 1996 as part of a Hulk series by Toybiz. Made in response to the somewhat popular Hulk cartoon airing on UPN during this time. The figure takes obvious cues from the show in that it is very cartoon-like. Very simple sculpt with a basic paint job. I dare say this figure also reminds me of King Kong from the old black and white film. Not sure if that film influenced it’s design. The figure came complete with a strange looking grenade launcher gun and hat. Sadly I bought this figure loose so I do not have the gun or hat. Which is honestly fine with me since I am not a big fan of the figure anyway. However, I like Mr. Fix-it and could not pass up this figure, being that it was the only time I have seen him in person.
The figure has limited articulation and has some weight to it. I purchased mine for around $11.
