Bowen really has gone all out with this latest crop of Hulk releases. This is certainly different enough from the Green Hulk piece to comment on – I mean, the earlier Hulk releases have just been re-paints – but here Randy has done something truly fantastic! Each sculpt has tweaks that make each statue being released different! For instance – with this statue you can see that Randy had flattened the head – added a yellow shirt and gave the Hulk an awe-inspiring desert scene base that totally rocks!
Sure, the basic sculpt is the same – but this is a classic statue that will surely rock! And there is no paint flaws like the Green Hulk statue seemed to have. I have had this bad boy for a while now – set up with the Green Hulk – and I can’t believe how awesome it looks. Every time I see it I think to myself how amazing accurate it is to the original incarnation to the Hulk. The Hulk has changed so much over the years – but the original was something that no one has successfully captured – until now!
I have to admit I was skeptical at first when BD announced the release of multiple Hulk statues – but now, I couldn’t be happier he did! I have Maestro on the way – and Planet Hulk will eventually get shipped – but all in all – thank you Mr. Bowen for the new crop of Hulks! I should just enjoy these – but I can’t help but hunger for a Fixit, a Merged Hulk, and maybe some others! Like, The End: Hulk and War Hulk – or even a WWH! I need to save up for the next crop of Hulks already! Not that they are definitely happening – but I have faith!
