Marvel 80th Anniversary Hulk vs Wolverine 2-Pack (2019)

Ever since the announcement of this 2-pack the internet was a buzz if this Hulk would dethrone the Face-Off Hulk as the best figure ever.  Keep in mind that the Face-Off Hulk has held this title since it’s release over a decade ago.  No other Hulk figure has been able to capture the classic look of the Hulk like the Face-Off Hulk has.  Well, I can’t say for certain that this Hulk has finally done the job – all I can say is that we finally have a contender!

While some on the interwebs have been singing this Hulk’s praises others have expressed concern over the way the ball joints used for the shoulder blades are too large.  I can’t say I agree just yet as I have yet to acquire one out of the box.  I ordered one from Dork Side Toys (it has yet to arrive) and I keep meaning to cancel the order all together since I also ordered it from Entertainment Earth and it arrived at the end of July.

All I can say is that I love the sculpt as well as the extra hands – and the ripped shirt thankfully hides any issue anyone would have with the shoulders.  The original Wolverine is perfect in scale and a worthy partner for this 80th Anniversary special 2-pack.  If you didn’t order this off any online site the good news is that you can still grab it from any of the Gamestops that this is popping up at.  I know it may seem expensive at $60 but I think this is worth it more than the Hulk/Hulkbuster ever was.  This is such a great addition to every Hulk collection out there and I am so glad Marvel has finally started producing figures that blow us away again!IMG_1769 (2)
