Avengers Hulk and Hulkbuster Iron Man (2015)

So, I was informed that the store that sold me the Avengers Hulk I showed off last week was not actually supposed to do that.  These had a street date of February 1st – I found this out when I saw this set at Toys R Us last Monday and tried to purchase it – but was stopped at the register saying that they aren’t allowed to sell them just yet.  How odd!  But I did go back and grab these on Sunday.  Of course, I would have liked to post this earlier but we here in MA were blasted with a ton of snow!

These figures are still the cheaper versions – and this set is part of the 2-packs (most of the figures in this series has a character and a vehicle) but of course, the Hulk/Hulkbuster set is the best!  It is the most common in the assortment and it’s obviously because they expect it to be the most popular.  The figures sculpts are really decent – but don’t expect too much out of them as far as articulation.  The IM has only two points (arms) – even his head is immobile.  The Hulk, on the other hand, boasts the 5 point articulation that the other inexpensive figure did.  The downside is the size.

This figure is tiny – but is obviously in size with the Hulkbuster – I don’t remember the Hulkbuster suit being that much bigger than the Hulk in the comics – but we’ll see how things transpire in the movies.  The Hulkbuster figure does open up so that you can slip the smaller Iron Man figure inside. It will be good to see the Hulkbuster in action in the movie rather than the little tease we were given back in Iron Man 3.  So, I guess the real question we’re left with is “Is this set worth it?”  Well, with the Marvel Legend figures on the way that will have a BAF Hulkbuster I don’t know if people, other than the real fanatics, need to pick this one up.  Grade: C

  1. I was able to find the Titan Tech versions of both figures at Target yesterday (HB IM is pretty awesome), but haven’t seen these around here (WI) anywhere yet. Looks like I need to make a trip to TRU. We got snow dumped on us on Sunday too, so I empathize, but we got “lucky” with just 8 inches. 6 more weeks til Spring!

  2. Hey Ryan-Finally picked these up at TRU-really DISAPPOINTED in them the small size and basically no articulation Hasbro is really letting collectors down with this series.yeah,yeah I know that they’re geared for kids-but i bet kids will say that they’re kinda crappy too!

  3. I can only imagine you’re right, Mike. Honestly, with what other companies are offering these are pretty low par.
