A whole bunch of new Mini-Mates have surfaced on the pegs. This is easily the coolest of the new group. Hulk is in full rage mode and ready to destroy – with the Scarlet Witch’s mind control in full effect! You can tell because he has irritated stoner eyes. I do like how they have the Hulk in the hue of grey to make this Hulk truly different.
Although these are cool I hate to say, I feel as though these Mini-Mates are a step down from the earlier releases. The Hulkbuster Iron Man from wave 7 (that came with the Gamma Hulk) was a better figure! The helmet actually flips up to reveal the smaller Iron Man inside. The older version is quite expensive now but I don’t see this one actually reaching those heights. The helmet doesn’t move and the rest of the figure is rather clunky.
The older version, with his big clunky head, actually looks more intimidating than the new model that has a small head and large bulky middle. I wouldeven go as far as to say that the older version represents the AoU Hulkbuster better than the recent release. Like I mentioned – the Wave 7 Hulkbuster is pretty pricey – but honestly, it may be worth it if you want the better rendition.
