I was once told by Fiddy that I am one of the luckiest collectors out there – I seem to find things before anyone else. I bet if I was trying I wouldn’t have the luck I seem to have. Actually – there was the Wal-Mart exclusive Hulk that I did have to do a little digging for – but most of the time I just happen upon figures sitting on shelves. And this was another one of those times!
We were told to expect a whole slew of new Avengers toys – and on Saturday I happen upon the Avengers Assemble Gamma Slam Hulk (2013, #13.99) and also – another stroke of luck – TRU was having a buy one, get one 40% off sale – so I picked up another Hulk MU figure… for the hell of it!
This Hulk is not big on articulation and what parts do move don’t stay where you want them to. Of course – that’s the point of these figures (I think). I can’t be 100% on that because I have never played with a Mighty Battler but I am guessing it is supposed to be rigid. There are no knee joints although you can make him sit – the arms do raise – but snap right back down at you – and FAST! the elbows move as well – and his abdomen can make him lean forward as if he is having stomach cramps. Lastly, he can swivel his head from side to side.
Overall, is still a pretty nice figure, with an inquisitive and slightly angry face. He’s not very big – bigger than the MU – but, as you can see, the ML Hulk towers over him! The olive color works well and it’s even nicer to have a Mighty Battler Hulk without jowls! The last one looked like a hound dog – this one will be displayed prominently in the Hulk room!
