Marvel Select Gladiator Hulk (2018)

So, let me just get this squared away right away. Every time a company graces us with a new Planet or Gladiator Hulk I immediately complain about one or two things.  The lack of an obedience disc and lack of rage in the Hulk’s face.  Here you will not hear me utter one word about a missing obedience disc because the Hulk did not sport one in the movie – so it finally makes sense!  Of course the lack of said disc in the movie is another topic all together, one that I have exhaustively tackled, so I won’t bother doing it here again.

The face is, on the other hand, I have mixed feelings about.  I love the likeness to the Hulk we see on screen but his ho-hum attitude bleeds boredom all over this figure!  I love that they gave us an extra head to sport the Hulk in full gladiator gear, helmet and all, but again, the face just screams “I need a nap”.  I think Marvel Select does a fantastic job, especially on the large, heavy figures like this one but this figure has a couple of noticeable defects.  The large spray of black paint on his forehead (above) where the painter missed the target is a huge eyesore!  Of course, that could just be my Hulk but still…

Even though my complaints are few it still isn’t an excuse on the glaring issues that this figure sports.  I do like this offering from Marvel Select – even with it’s faults – and we still get quite a bang for your buck when it comes to these figures.  It doesn’t help that this is a lot harder to find than most figures from this line. Overall, I think you guys should get it but don’t expect perfection like I was.
