Hulk Lunch Tin (2016)

IMG_0534 (2)

Sometimes you see something in the store and you can’t help but pick it up.  I have had an iron will with certain items but something about a lunchbox that is just the entire face of the Hulk screamed “Bring me home!”  There isn’t much else to say about this other than you should totally pick this up.  I’m psyched to see what Marvel has in store for us as far as merchandise goes when Thor 3 comes out.  A lunchbox like this with the gladiator helmet?  Just take my money!

Marvel Legends Onslaught (2016)

It was one of the things I tried to convince myself I wanted.  I love the story line – even with all of it’s faults – but I never took the plunge in buying any of the earlier figures.  Finally, I had a second chance at grabbing an Onslaught Build a Figure.  I still am on the fence about the first release – which it is articulated like crazy it’s also very awkward.  I am trying to look at the bright side as the best Onslaught figure is the 1997 offering… and that one is insanely high in price.

This new figure might be based off the new Red Skull character from the very disappointing AXIS event but that matters very little to me.  I grabbed the classic head from Kitty Pride and I now have the Onslaught figure I’d been looking for!  What do you guys think?  Which is the best Onslaught figure?

Voice Modulator Hulk Mask (2016)

I am looking forward to seeing what we have in store for Thor: Ragnarok.  I am hoping for a new set of Hulk hands presented in a new way – I also hope to see a Hulk mask that wear the Planet Hulk crown!  For now, though, we have this awesome piece of work!  Remember the Chewbacca lady?  Too bad the Hulk’s mouth doesn’t move – we could have another viral video hitting the interwebs!  I haven’t seen this on the shelves for a while but hopefully it is still available!  Every Hulk fan should have this bad Larry!

Titan Hero Hulk Figures (2015/2016)

img_0455-2

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.

Sofubi Retro Hulk (2016)

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!

Doctor Strange Metal Figure (2016)

img_0429-2

I think everyone was pleasantly surprised with just hos enjoyable the Dr Strange movie was.  I know I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did!  Seeing the merchandise dominate the retail space wasn’t completely unexpected though… and most of it was a pass for me.  I did decide to purchase the classic looking metal figure – and as a founding member of the Defenders it makes sense in the Hulk room!  So, bonus!

The one thing I noticed too is that it wasn’t riddled with holes like the Hulk figure is.  Of course, I think they are just hidden behind the cape – but I have never wished the Hulk to don a cape until this moment!  The only real missing piece is the details on the edge of the cape.  I sort of wish it featured the yellow with squiggly pattern like it does in the comic.

Diamond Select Marvel Gallery Hulk PVC Statue (2016)

img_0368-2

My wife has a unique problem.  She WANTS to get me Hulky goodness for Christmas but I have pretty much everything.  Finding things I don’t have is quite the quest.  Lucky for her Diamond Select released a statue – well, a large figure, or statue, or just a big Hulk – whatever you want to call it.   It’s certainly an eye catcher!  The Hulk isn’t one of those super detailed Bowen masterpieces – but it is worth a look.

The Hulk has an animated style to it that reminds me of Bruce Timm a bit but also has it’s own unique look to it that has it’s own appeal.  The paint applications are not the best – especially the pants – but they are also not distractingly bad.  The face sculpt is has a bit of a blandness and a wash might’ve brought out a few more details but it isn’t terrible.  The only real issue I can harp on are the obvious seams that appear at the neck line.

Still, the price is right on these statues and, posed correctly, look nice.  This is worth the pick up without a need to haggle over how much you have to pay.
