Marvel Universe Abomination & Grey Hulk (2013)

The truly amazing thing about the Marvel Universe figures is that they were coming off a historic run with Marvel Legends.  Hasbro needed to make a bigger profit margin and I was disappointed with this line in the beginning but really grew to love, even look forward, to new series from this line.  The first serving of the Hulk wasn’t fantastic – but later molds proved to be brilliant.  A few years ago, with the release of King Hulk, people asked for a classic Hulk in the sculpt.  Hasbro was quick to make good on that and even served up a Red Hulk of the same in the “Heroic Age” boxed set.  With the death of the MU line fast approaching people are certainly clamoring to get these last few figures, including the new Grey Hulk.  I was excited about getting this as well – only, when it arrived I realized the seller I bought from didn’t package the figures securely enough.  The packaging of the Grey Hulk was busted open.

As much as a downer as that was I was also elated at how amazing the Abomination figure looks.  I am waiting to find the A-Bomb figure (and a new Grey Hulk) but for now I am happy to have the figures that I do.  There will be plenty of time to find the missing pieces.  Most of you know I have stream-lined my collection anyways, but the MU figures have made it.  Better pictures are on the way.
