WalMart Exclusive – Avengers 6″ Hulk (2012)

NEW WalMart exclusive Avengers 6″ Hulk

I know I just put up a post complaining that I had no idea these existed – and my the reaction from the gammas on here I was not alone in this anomaly - but amazingly, I already found them at my local WalMart.  It was an interesting day to say the least.  When I found out about these figures I immediately went to the WalMart closest to me – luckily I live very close and it is 24 hours – well, I had no luck that night, or the next night, but yesterday I was traveling for work and visited a few WalMarts.  As my luck would have it, the third WalMart I ventured into there was a woman pulling all of the Avengers items off of the pegs.  I asked what she was doing and she said that she was clearing space for the Amazing Spiderman figures that were coming out.  I asked her if they had the new WalMart exclusive figures by chance – she told me she did not work for WalMart – but instead she was the Rep for Hasbro!

Without going into a huge amount of detail – let’s just say she contacted the Rep that covered my local WalMart - who was putting out the figures AS THEY SPOKE!  I took the 40 minute drive back to my area and into the WalMart where I turned the corner and saw the Hulk – he was off the pegs and sitting on the shelf – which means someone looked at him and then decided not to get him and walked away!  I was so lucky!  I could not believe my luck!

New Sculpt – pretty damn cool

Yes, I also snagged the new WalMart exclusive Avengers 4-pack – I will post that tomorrow – but this figure here is outstanding!  Not a repaint or a re-release – this is a brand new sculpt and looks pretty impressive!  If you can wait and find them in the store they are priced at $15.99 – which is less than a Marvel Legends these days.  They have short-packed the Hulk, he is only one per box, and that’s going to make him that much more difficult to find – but WalMart exclusives have the track record of not being the easiest to find.  Most WalMarts will tell you that they are not on the layout – or they are not busy enough to get the exclusives – so if you’ve been able to snag one, congrats!  The prices on ebay are outrageous right now but hopefully will cool off soon.  Either way – I am happy to report that this figure is not a let down – it comes with a base that connects to the other figures so you can display them together and perfectly represents the Hulk we see in the movie – I love this Hulk, and the entire line is pretty impressive – so pick it up if you can!  Grade: B+

  1. congrats! That is an awesome looking figure! If anyone finds this or the 4-pack, I am still looking!!

  2. I got my LTS friend of mine who’s gets super rare stuff and said he will get one for me. I’m 80% sure he’ll get it but just in case he does’nt I got spotters who will buy it for me if they see it when they go to Walmart. $50 bucks is way too much for my wallet.

  3. $50 IS way too much for this figure – I am amazed I was able to snag one so easily! I will still keep my eye out for you guys – if I find anything I will let you know!

    • Ya put me down as well Ratchet if you don’t mind….I want the hole set though not just Hulk. Thanks in advance.

      • No problem – I know Mike (gammapup) said he went the ebay route already – which to me shows some real dedication! But hey, if you can’t find it in the stores in a few months I think ebay may be the only alternative. Hopefully the prices will have cooled at that point.

  4. hulkandthor#1!

    I really like the artwork. Especially the side artwork. I wonder who does it? Alex Ross?

  5. I’m still looking for this one. Every Wal-Mart I’ve been to, there is only ONE Iron Man left on the shelf! Why did they have to shortpack Hulk?! Well at least I have the Marvel Select in the meantime, which is the greatest representation of ANY Hulk from ANY movie in the past couple of years. I would highly recommend to anyone to pick it up.

  6. I would say its up there with face off hulk..

  7. We drove to Baltimore MD (from Williamsburg VA) this weekend to vend at Balticon. On the trip up Friday we stopped at the WalMart in Spotsylvania VA. Found the four pack (with the Hulk) and one lone Iron Man repaint. Crap.

    On the trip back Monday I figured we should stop again, on the off chance that they’d restocked. SCORE! One crushed package Hulk (but totally intact figure), one Captain America and, around the corner, one Hawkeye. Hooray for out-of-town weekend trips!

  8. Gave up finding one, so went the ebay route and paid 32 bucks. Then 3 weeks later found two from my local walmart. Should of waited, but now i have one out of the pack and one still in it. And my nephew gets the other one for christmas. I was so estatic about seeing two of them, i had to buy both:)
