What happened to?…

What happened to the great Valkyrie and Red King figures?  Did they get shelved in favor of other figures?  Are they on their way?  I would have loved the Valkyrie figure!  Did she get shelved in favor of the She-Hulk?  I’m too upset about the Red King – but I hope to see these figures soon…

12 Inch Movie Hulk (2008)

This is too much.  Did they have a meeting and say “Okay, everything that we did right for the previous movie 12″ Hulks – let’s throw that out the window and make the WORST looking Hulk figure ever!”  Well, they would be happy to know that they succeded.  Congrats – this is a piece of crap.  Woo-Hoo!  Everything about this Hulk is bad – the scale (he’s far too skinny!) and his crossed eyes (what is this recent trend of giving the Hulk a lazy eye?)  The only thing that is even partially cool about this is that it talks when you press his belly. 

"Hulk see double!"

"Hulk see double!"

But why does his eyes glow?  Not only are the glowy eyes inaccurate – but they really do nothing for the figure itself!  I do like that when you squeeze his legs together his arms raise and when they lower there is a crashing sound.  What can I say?  I’m easy to please 🙂  Even though I am easy to please I still have to give this figure two thumbs way down – sorry to say it, but I pride myself on my honesty about how I feel about the Hulk merchandise and I can’t just say that this figure is even worth picking up.  It feels like it’s made of cheap plastic and the color is more like the 90’s comics – not recent Hulk’s shade of green.  Boo.
