Hot Toys has a line of vinyl figures where they have various vinyl artists interpret various characters. Famous artist TOUMA did a series of Avengers Age of Ultron figures including this very cool Incredible Hulk figure. There is also a Rampaging Hulk version but it is only sold in a set of the Avengers movie so looks like I won’t be getting that one. Not too pricey so great to add to your Hulk collection.
This figure came out a little bit ago but it was well after the initial wave of Avengers figures and toys came out. This is the Hulk under the spell of the Scarlet Witch in the movie where he has the red eyes and goes on a rampage. They colored his skin a bit grey-green like they were supposed to do in the movie originally. Another pretty basic sculpt and figure.
Okay, did anyone actually think we would ever get a Korg action figure? Granted the Planet Hulk storyline was great but even I was surprised by this. Of course they can pretty much re-use the body from a Thing figure and put a new head on it but still how awesome is it to get a Korg figure and it looks great! Korg did have a very tiny role in the 2nd Thor movie but we won’t talk about that.
ToysRUs had a deal where if you bought over $30 work of Legos, you would get this exclusive Hulk lego set with take apart vehicle. This is the smaller Hulk Lego figure as opposed to the much larger Hulk that comes with the Avengers sets. Even though the larger Hulk is more accurate, I do like the smaller Lego figure just because he is more Legoee if you know what I mean. I won’t be opening this set because obviously I have issues.
Sure, we got a Marvel Legends Hulk figure from the recent Avengers movie but now we have an official Mark Ruffalo Bruce Banner action figure. (yes, I know there is a Hot Toys version of Mark Ruffalo but that is way expensive for me right now). This action figure came in an Amazon exclusive set of Avengers Age of Ultron Marvel Legends set. Very cool and they did a pretty good likeness of for the figure. Had to get it off ebay and paid pretty much what a standard Legends figure costs so not bad.
We already know that the Hulk will be appearing in the next Thor movie but now we get some hints that it might be a merged version of the Hulk. Mark Ruffalo was talking with Ain’t It Cool News and had this to say:
“It’s very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit. Who decided to leave [in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’]? Was it Banner or Hulk? It’s not really in the mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It’s interesting, right?”
“I think it’s really exciting where we could go with it. Now I feel like we’re kind of in No Man’s Land. I mean, the comic books have kind of broached the subject, but we’re moving away from the traditional Hulk/Banner relationship. We’re starting to mess with it a little bit,” he added.”
How cool does that sound. With a merged Hulk, I think it might be a little easier to make a Planet Hulk movie.
Graphic artist Justin Kozisek redesigned all the NFL team helmets as if they were based on Marvel heroes. Take a look here . I have to say he did a really great job on matching the original team helmet design to a Marvel equivalent. Of course the Hulk is the best one.
In the recent wave of Legends Infinite series, each figure has a piece of the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor. I finally managed to track down the pieces from the figures I didn’t want to buy (thanks to paying too much on eBay) and here is the final figure. Have to say it is a very impressive and huge compared to the other Legends figure. Definitely worth adding to your collection. You’re not going to spend any time playing with him as his head and legs come off pretty easy but still a cool looking action figure.
A member of the Eurobrick website got a hold of some images of the Marvel and DC figures for the upcoming Lego Might Micro sets. One will be Hulk vs Ultron and features the very funny looking Hulk below. It looks like all the figures will have a facial expression like the Hulk’s. Can’t wait to get this figure!
