Man, there are times when I get older Hulk toys that really make me miss Toy Biz. I know they weren’t perfect and some of their releases didn’t hold up over time – but large, affordable pieces like this is what the market is missing these days. A great set where you can encase the Hulk into a “steel” cage and have him break out! I truly wish we saw something this great when Avengers: Infinity War was released.
Could you imagine having the Hulk busting out of the Hulkbuster Iron Man suit being released through Toy Biz? It would be huge and massive and coveted by every Hulk collector! I really wish we still saw these kind of Hulk figures and sets but Hasbro ends up giving us skinny, hard plastic with hardly any articulation. Anything this big ends up looking cheap and unimpressive.
But look at that face! It’s pretty awesome! The rubbery skin and ripping shirt are just the icing on the cake for this 2003 set. It’s too bad pieces like this are associated with such a forgotten Hulk movie. An underwhelming film that actually gave us some amazing toys!
