This right here is an interesting situation… a WHILE back the Superhero Squad line announced a 2-pack – one of the coolest announcements in a long time – they were making a Ultimate Wolverine/ King Hulk 2-Pack. If you don’t remember – look here.  But we waited and waited… and waited… for nothing.  In fact – it’s still supposed to come out – sometime in the future.

But out of nowhere Toys R Us released a collector’s pack containing 6 figures – one being THE KING HULK!  Although if you go by the packaging it’s just the Hulk.  Maybe the Hulk from the Ang Lee movie because this scale is way off – but who cares!  Look how bad ass this toy is!  Keep in mind that these are Superhero Squad figures and they are not known for articulation, most of the figures that you get, Spider-man, Emma Frost, Iron Man, Falcon, and Mr. Fantastic, only turn at the waist (Emma Frost’s only point of articulation is at her head) but even so – these figures are more about novelty anyways.

The Hulk’s necklaces do come off but the “skirt” does not.  His head, wrists, arms and waist all move.  All in all a nice pack – is it worth the $30?  I think so – at least it’s not something I felt was a waste of money.  I say take the plunge!  Here’s a shot of the Hulk with the Mighty Muggs Hulk – almost as big!

They finally meet...
