Hot Toys Cosbaby Hulk (2016)

A while ago there was a Hot Toys release – Artist Mix Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk – which was a stylized version of the Hulk that, while really fun and unique, was slightly ruined with the inclusion of the bobble head that all Marvel solid figures are required to have.  We’ve gone over this before but for anyone who isn’t aware Mighty Muggs made it impossible for any other company to produce a figure like this.  Every subsequent figure – including all the Funko mystery figures and the Pop figures – have had a bobblehead feature.  I wish that stipulation didn’t exist because some of these figures would be perfect without the bobbing head.

This figure is an interesting one and a bit different – it has a “baby” look to it – or more to the point, and what I think is more appropriate, an anime feel.  Mostly due to the absence of a nose and the oversized eyes.  The cartoony and gigantic hands are contrasted wonderfully with the short stubby legs and gives the figure a Calvin (from Calvin and Hobbes) look.

The bobblehead feature on this figure is so subtle that you can’t really even notice it.  I think this figure is a step above the Artist Mix piece – but mainly because I love the figures that stand out in a huge collection.  Both are certainly worth it – but if you’re going to buy just one I would go for this one.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk Artist Mix Figure (2016)

I like unique figures.  Especially unique Hulk figures!  Touma, a Japanese toy designer came up with this little bad boy and I couldn’t be happier!  I do wish it had a bit of articulation and no bobble-head – but the figure is cool enough that it doesn’t bother me that much.

His exaggerated arms and tiny feet make for a funny looking sculpt but the oddness is also makes it very cool.  His boxy fingers and jagged, defined physique makes this figure eye catching and hilarious.  But this is a figure you could also keep in the box as the box design is as cool as the figure itself.

Shop around on this figure.  While an LCS near me sported this piece the retail was $50 but a quick search on eBay and I was able to find this for a much lower price!  Overall, this is a great figure worth the pick-up and worthy of a corner in your man (or woman) cave to display.
