Playmation Hulk (Part 2) and Hulkbuster (2015)

I did get a question about how good the Playmation Hulk displays.  I actually has a little fun with yesterday’s post because I knew I was going to be posting about the Hulk again – so I made the previous post sort of a joke.  Today we can get into just how cool the Hulk is… or isn’t.  Let’s move on to find out!

I will just begin with that fact there really isn’t any kind of articulation.  The arms move – but slightly at that.  The waist moves but it isn’t articulation as it seems to just be balancing on the bottom half of the body.  The base ensures that you can put it anywhere and have it stand up but it certainly does not give the legs any kind of mobility.

With all that being said – you’re asking yourself “Is it worth picking it up?”  I would say yes – absolutely!  The sculpt is fantastic and classic – besides the somewhat AoU inspired pants.  The paint doesn’t look as bad as the photos show – it washes out the green of the body pretty badly but it doesn’t look so bad in person.  That being said – there is a difference.

The Hulk and the Hulkbuster are both made of very light plastic and have no real heft to it.  I know it sounds like I’m being pretty hard on these pieces but truly, I still think they are worth picking up.  They retail for about $15 and I saw a pretty freaky MODOK that I didn’t choose to get.  I stuck with the more Hulk related figures.  The real save is that they are pretty sizable – not ML sized – but big and bulky like a Hulk/Hulkbuster should be.

Grade: C+

Playmation Hulk (2015)

There is a new game on the market – as it were, me not being the gamer, I have no idea what it does or how to play it.  I figure it’s much like the Infinity games where you can place the characters you buy right into the game – but then again, I’m not sure.  One of the kids at TRU started to explain what Playmation is but I got bored and walked away.

I’m just kidding!  I didn’t just walk away from someone who was talking to me!  That would be so rude.  I did interrupt his explanation by shouting “BLAH, BLAH, BLAH! HOLY BORING!” and then shook my head and walked away.

Okay, if you believed that then I don’t know what you think of me!  Come on!  I listened but I drifted off a bit.  When I heard him stop talking I thanked him and then walked away.  Which actually may be the rudest response of them all…
