The Titan series certainly provides children with an affordable way to collect 12″ figures of their favorite characters. While I haven’t bothered blogging about the Hulk figure – I did pick it up. The articulation, paint apps and sculpt all are very simple and nothing to note. Again, though, these are perfect for children who just want to play with Hulk figures!
Ultimately, these are big, chunky figures that were nothing to wrote home about. Then, Marvel released a second version of the Hulk. Unlike the first version that showed the classic teeth gritting, rage filled Hulk, this new version was a bit of surprise. It has a stern looking scowling Hulk – a face sculpt that portrayed annoyance rather than anger!
I love when they do that! I love when they offer a Hulk that is not what you expect. The Hulk actually looks like he has been offered a sandwich of stinky cheese! The darker color looks better too.
I can only tell you with this item you have to see it in person to really appreciate it! This thing is truly a monster! I don’t even mean the jade giant in the box – I mean the size of this thing is impressive! When I saw a pic on ebay I wasn’t sure I was going to bother picking it up – but I decided to throw caution to the wind and man, am I happy I did!
I don’t know if this is a whole line or if there are other figures produced – to tell the truth I haven’t really cared all that much to research – but the Hulk is amazing! While it is not a front runner in articulation but the sculpt, especially the face, is classic, hilarious and brilliant! Not to mention the artwork on the box is something to behold! Two of the most iconic artists to ever work on the Hulk is displayed on here! This 10″ figure is truly a throwback to the figures of yesteryear. While the price tag is a bit steep take the time to seek out the best price. Make this a part of your collection TODAY!
Walking through Target I noticed an Iron Man from a new kids friendly Avengers line and thought “Cool. I wonder if they made a Hulk?” The back of the package confirmed that they did, in fact, make a Hulk figure. It sent me off to every Target and TRU in my area. On the second Target I entered I was able to snag myself a Hulk. First thing that I noticed is the mass of this figure compared to the others in the line.
I always feel it’s important to have the Hulk be the biggest figure in the line – something that the Marvel Universe did with the first release but then subsequent releases they made the Hulk closer to the same size as the other characters in the line. Hulk needs to be bigger! He needs to be noticeably the largest figure!
This figure accomplishes that and then some! Not only is the size impressive but the Hulk is obviously based on the early silver age Hulk. Ripping the figure open I was also pleasantly surprised that they gave him a bit more articulation that I would’ve thought – not only does his head swivel but also his shoulders and elbows! His legs bend – but not the knees – that’s the only thing that would’ve really made this figure complete!
The other thing to note is that the proportions are somewhat more accurate than they have been on figures in the past. The sculpt is fantastic, with surprising detail! The paints – although very simplistic – work well and pop and of course – are classic purple! This was certainly the way to start off the year with a surprise Hulk figure that totally rocks!
A while back Schleich produced some DC figures that were really impressive. At the time I was hoping to see a Marvel line in the vain. Sure enough, while perusing the TRU website I was excited to notice that Schleich was doing just that! Of course the pic on the website looked a bit – better produced – but really, this is not much different than what is shown. It is absolutely beautiful! It’s also humongous – which was a welcome surprise! I was expecting a somewhat smaller scale but this is almost as large as the Bowen Mini-Statues!
I know the rocky base on Hulk figures may be getting tired (one of the reasons I still appreciate the Marvel Milestones Hulk statue base) but it still works! I ordered this last Monday and it came on Saturday – I checked the website again it said it was sold out already! Not sure if it still says that but I was shocked as these haven’t seemed to hit the stores yet!
It is somewhat funny to me though… these days the only way to visit the classic, savage Hulk is to see him in figure and collectible form – not even the comics. It doesn’t seem that Marvel is too antsy in releasing Totally Awesome Hulk products… yet that character continues to adorn the shelves. Overall, look for these figures to be hitting the toy shelves very soon and snag one as soon as you can!
Avengers sequel merchandise was very hit and miss. This Hulk came in a 4-pack with some of the other Avengers but I really didn’t want to get the whole set. This what happens when merchandisers go crazy with popular films. In 2003 we saw such an influx of Hulk merchandise it was hard to keep up! Same with Avengers.
I didn’t want the whole set – and from what I remember the set ranged in the $25-$30 area. I certainly wasn’t willing to pay that much for just this little Hulk figure. This is when I am happy that eBay exists! I was even happier to realize I didn’t buy full price when I saw that this little guy is, in fact, a bobble head.
It’s been a while since Marvel has released anything in their 3″ line that got my attention. Mostly, as nice as the figures look, they’ve been characters I don’t have any interest in. That being said, we finally have a Hulk related figure to look forward to! The Maestro! Sure, this is the future Hulk that starred in the Secret War’s Contest of Champions as of late and not the superior Future Imperfect – but it still looks bad ass in all sorts of bad asserry ways!
Also, Walgreens keeps on releasing exclusives – this time mini mates with a glow in the dark Hulk figure! Keep an eye out and let me know if you see these figures hit the shelves!
