Avengers Hulk Figure (2012)

Avengers Hulk

I mentioned this in the video – but these new Avengers figures are certainly nothing to crow about.  Don’t get me wrong – the sculpt is pretty decent – and the coloring looks pretty good too – the issues come when you look at the articulation.  The head (hardly) moves, as does the arms at the shoulders and the legs at the waist but that’s it.  No wrist, knee, ankle or even elbow joints.  It is one of the laziest action figures I think I have seen from Hasbro in a long while.

Hulk… not too impressive

Even worse is the fact that they are releasing these to comic shops only – and of course their mark up is more substantial than a national chain – so these figures are running about $15 – $20.  Had I not been inflicted with such a sick obsession I wouldn’t have bothered picking this up – but alas… I did.  I do like the sculpt, like I said, so if you’re as big as a Hulk fan as I am maybe it’s worth the pick up.  Otherwise, the grade: C-

  1. Is this made out of a soft, vinyl kind of plastic? Because if it is vinyl, then the articulation cannot be helped. It looks kind of vinyl to me for some reason. The same could be said if it is a rotocast, which are basically the same thing to my understanding.

  2. Wow, that’s lame. There’s no real excuse for the lack of articulation… If they wanted to make a figure that was more statue like, then they could have just put him in a cool pose and give him no articulation at all… Just seems like an unnecessary purchase compared to the Marvel Select and Legends figures, unless you are a completist. That’s too bad, because the sculpt actually looks rather nice.

    Why do they keep giving him tan pants? He did NOT have tan pants in the movie. He had regular blue jeans!

  4. Yeah, I think everyone can agree that the tan pants on these Hasbro figures look hideous…. Come on, Hasbro!
