Taken from the Avengers Assemble #2 cover this print is mounted and framed to display gorgeously! My friend Mike showed up and gifted this piece to me at the last Zapp Comic-Con. I really enjoyed not only the series from Bendis but the art was fantastic! Thank you to Gammapup for this show piece! My collection is better because of you! The image is one of the better pieces too as the Hulk is front and center – the way he should be!
You can rely on certain companies to release pieces that tie to a movie. So, yes, Hasbro will release a set of Marvel Legends that will please some and displease others and Funko will most likely make some cool Pops, key chains and pen toppers as well as Pez dispensers and Mystery Mini blind boxes. Well, sure enough here he have the key chain.
I really wish the figures didn’t have to be bobble heads but if you never take them out of the package I guess you never have to worry about it! The pens are something simple and easy enough to display but not really a collectible if you want to skip it!
I still think the Hulk is pretty terrible – sculpt wise – but with news that the wave 3 Avengers IRON Man comes with an Infinity Gauntlet for he Hulk to sport, well, it makes this figure a heck of a whole lot more desirable.
I would love to display this merchandise proudly – it’s too bad that the movie really did our Green Goliath an injustice and I’m truly not a fan of the “space suit” that he dons in this movie. Overall though, it is the Hulk and I did get this guy to add to the collection.
I have refrained from making comments about the movie – the review IS coming but before it was released all sorts of merchandise was being released – all with the heroes donning these nifty space suits. I have to admit it intrigued me and even excited me to see what Endgame had in store!
This release was the first indication that we were going to be given the Smart or Merged Hulk in the new movie and were not getting another dose of the Savage Hulk.
Tonight I will posting a full length review on all of the new hulk related figures I have posted – but here is a quick sneak peek at the latest acquisition. It looks pretty awesome!
So, this must be the line taking over for the MU series. This Hulk figure is leaps and bounds better than the one I posted Saturday. Like I said – I think the other was geared more toward kids while this one certainly is more toward the collector’s liking. It has way more articulation – 12 points in all (including the ball joints at the legs) and the sculpt is a lot better as well. I wish I could say it was better in all facets – but the paint application is still pretty dull and cheap looking. Overall though, this figure gives me great hope for the future of the Avengers Assemble line.
While I was out I did find the latest wave of MU figures and picked up not only the newest Rhino but the really great Mysterio figure. I am really hoping to be able to find the last few figures in this line – like the Abomination and the Leader – this is a line I will miss. It’s too bad that Hasbro’s choices sort of nose dived the whole series.
You should absolutely pick these up if you are lucky enough to find them – especially the classic Rhino figure which is a lot better than the Rhino we got in the Spider-Man 2-pack.
AA Hulk – B-
MU Rhino – A-
MU Mysterio – B
