Marvel Universe Grey Hulk (2009)

First off – I can’t find the freakin’ green Hulk everywhere!  I will eventually track it down – but I’ll tell you right now… this line is doomed to fail.  Why?  The price point.  $8.00 for a 3″ figure?  ML were way bigger and $2.00 more!  Do your selves a favor – don’t buy these.  Me?  I’m a sick puppy with no will power – but you guys have common sense, right?  Don’t buy these.  The paint job is horrible – the figure is NOT worth the price tag – these should be $4-$5 easy – but Marvel and Hasbro are going to try this price point out – let’s let them know that it doesn’t work for us!

One of the good points about these are the fact that they finally spelled “GREY” right!  The sculpts aren’t too bad either – the unfortunate thing about this scale is that the paint app. is a bit on the shoddy side.  Small figures aren’t really conducive to accurate or detailed paint jobs.  It’s not to say that it’s bad – I mean we get highlights in the Hulk’s hair!  As far as accessories go – with the Hulk it’s pretty bare.  The figures all come with a S.H.E.I.L.D. file on the character.  The photo cards is fine – but the letter from Doc Samson is a little blah… I mean it doesn’t even cover the Hulk – it’s all about Banner and what a non-threat he is!

The packaging is fine –  nothing special – but these figures are really quite small – compared to what we have been getting.  I know this scale is what is popular now – but I’ll tell you – I’m really glad they didn’t choose to make the Hulk movie figures in this scale, like they are now with the Wolverine movie.  Anyways – if I were to rate these figures on a grading scale they would land in the “average” to even “below average” range.  What does everyone else out there think of these?
