Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man (2015)

more stuff 009

This past year the Marvel Legends BAF Hulkbuster figure was released.  The only real issue I (and most other people) had was the flat paint they used to adorn the figure with.  Well, they fixed the paint issues when it came to the Marvel Select release – but the figure has some other issues.  While it’s still a fantastic piece there is one area they skimped on.

The articulation is really lacking – the head, hands and fingers don’t move.  They’re molded in such a way that lends itself to some fun poses but ultimately, you’re forced to just a few. That being said, as nice as this Hulkbuster is if they had just taken this figure and the ML Hulkbuster and combined all the best features we would easily have the greatest figure ever created.

The ball joints on the legs and arms are nice, the knees the bend like… well, knees but overall the figure is smaller than I’d have hoped.  It is still a great figure – and seeing as the difference in prices for this figure to the ML one is astronomical if you’re just going to choose one piece to get – it’s worth the pickup over the BAF.

I would say if the ML figure is an easy B- then the Marvel Select would score the same.  Could you imagine the cherry, metallic red on the BAF?  How boss would that be?

  1. Hey Ratch glad to see you still posting Hulk stuff. I prefer the BAF Hulkbuster, but the paint job on the select is way better. I picked up that large 18 inch Hulkbuster and painted gold and sliver for the parts that were left out. Then I picked up titian hero Avengers Ironman and placed him in the Hulkbuster. Now it looks awesome and I don’t have to buy a Hot Toys Hulkbuster (which is way to expensive) to go with my Hot Toys Age of Ultron Hulk figure. I’m aiming to pick up Neco Hulk figure next.
