When they announced that Funko would be releasing Pez dispensers I immediately thought it was a brilliant moment in licensing. What would fit better than the stylized heads on top of the Pez dispensers. I have started to notice that they are now offering the Hulk dispensers without the Pez candy inside – that to me is outright insanity!
The only other one of these I have yet to track down is the Gold version – it is the Lootcrate edition – and also, in my opinion, the weakest of the 3. I’m not saying I won’t get it – I’m just saying I am in no rush to acquire it.
All I say is “Wow!” with all of the Hulk related Pops that were produced on 2018. This is easily one of the most sought after. One of the only real memorable moments from Avengers: Age of Ultron was the awesome Hulk vs Hulkbuster fight. The Hulk, with his mind taken over by Scarlet Witch, is on a rampage and the only one to stop him is Tony with “Veronica” or, as we all know it, the Hulkbuster suit! These scene Pops are a really fun idea although they take up a crazy amount of space!
I do like the 10th Anniversary products but they are charging quite the premium for them! This was a Fall Convention exclusive but also offered through the Walgreen’s website. These were also originally priced at $39.99 – which also adds to my complaint about the pricing of these 10th Anniversary MCU items. If you head over to Walgreen’s website now you will find these for the much better price of $29.99. I’ve heard a lot of these have come damaged – but thankfully mine came perfect!
I love when I find a Hulk figure that I never expected to find. It happen years ago when Fisher Price released wooden “Little People” and I just happen to come across them in a Target one morning. Well, the same kid of thing happened with this big guy as I searched a local Wal-Mart in the wee hours of the morning. I was on a hunt for any new Marvel Legends figures but didn’t have any luck.
When I turned the corner, the toy man had just put these on the shelves! There were a few different characters – but I really can’t remember what I saw as I just noticed the Hulk! This friendly little Hulk reminds me of the Famous Covers Hulk from the 90’s.
When Disney announced a new toy line with stylized figures I eagerly awaited the Hulk. I don’t think anyone was disappointed by what was delivered to our local Disney Shops. A bit later we were given the repaint Grey Hulk – but with a new head sculpt! I was excited as I love the original figure – but at the same time that the Grey Hulk was released it was also announced that there would be a 2-pack – Hulkbuster vs Hulk!
I could tell right away that this Green Hulk was both different AND the same! While it is a different head sculpt than the first offering it’s actually the recently released Grey Hulk repainted green. I knew I wanted this but I was also a bit hesitant as I didn’t want to pay for the same figure twice! Even if they are different colors. Thankfully, my sister decided this was the perfect gift to get for me for Christmas this year – and even better, I had totally forgotten about it! The best part is the light up feature and sound effects that the Hulkbuster boasts. That, and the tiny little Tony head that is present under the huge Iron Man helmet!
There are quite a few of these foam Gauntlets out there – the things is, most of them aren’t very good. This is the most comic accurate and looks the best, in my opinion! The Infinity Gems are big, round and bright just as they should be! The material seems to be the same that they made the original Hulk hands from. It’s both soft enough for people to take a punch but also firm enough to feel solid when you’re wearing it. The size is just perfect too – it’s the whole gauntlet – not just the base of the hand like the latest Hulk hands have offered. The only thing was the price. This was the same price that you paid for the latest, flimsy Hulk hands – and there were two of them! The better deal was to wait, like I did, until these hit secondary retailers where they were discounted.
This year it seems that Funko really stepped up their game with their most popular line – the Funko Pops. This excellent representation of teenage Groot making the move to be the hero and supplying the handle to Stormbreaker. One of the cooler moments in the latest Avengers movie which had practically every hero that the MCU offers – it’s hard to make every character stand out. With Groot, this definitely gave the prepubescent twig a moment to shine!
The real gems are the details littering the characters. The mossy green top and the almost translucent axe that makes the deadly end of Stormbreaker made this Pop a must have! Groot Pops, in my opinion, are hit or miss with this and the recent Holiday Groot are fantastic additions to any Funko collection!
