I have to say that I am not a big fan of the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. animated show. Just don’t like how the various characters are treated. But it brings new action figures so it can’t be all that bad. This is Skaar, son of the Hulk. He is actually called Sword Slashin’ Skaar on the packaging. The figure is actually a pretty good sculpt, I think they did a good job on the figure, you can even put his sword in the sheath on his back. If you squeeze his legs and his arm slashes forward. Nice addition for the Hulk collector.
If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy, drop everything and go out and see it right now. Best movie of the summer, in fact I think it might be my favorite Marvel movie to date. I know, this coming from a huge Hulk fan. Saw this Minimates set with Rocket and Groot and I had to have it. After all, the first modern day major appearances of Rocket and Groot were in issues of the Incredible Hulk. The Groot figure is pretty cool looking, although since his feet/roots are so big, he doesn’t exactly stand up straight. The little Rocket figure is just one solid piece. Designed to look like a Minimates but he doesn’t move. Course he doesn’t have to, he looks cool just as he is.
Marvel Select makes huge, heavy action figures and this Savage Hulk action figure follows that pattern. The thing is very heavy, it is obviously not hollow for the most part. This Hulk appears to be patterned off of the first appearance of the Hulk and for the most part the sculpt is good. The body sculpt looks good although the shirt ripping is to symmetrical. The one aspect that I am not a fan of is the face. It’s not that the sculpt isn’t good, it just doesn’t fit the figure. It doesn’t look Hulk enough, just not enough like the early appearance of the Hulk. Still, for the Hulk fanatics, this is a good figure to pick up. It will be apparently be available in the Disney store.
Marvel Select is releasing a new Hulk action figure called Savage Hulk. Not sure about the face, it looks a little off. And it probably would have looked better in a grey color, the face would have fit that color scheme better. Right now, it is only available on marvelshop.com if you can’t wait for it to be available at Disney stores or other locations. Here is the information from Marvel’s website:
Since he was first introduced in 1962, the Incredible Hulk’s fame has grown by leaps and bounds. From the pages of his Marvel comic book, to the live-action TV series that made him a household name, to his defining role in Marvel’s The Avengers, the Hulk has grown from misunderstood monster to Hollywood hero. And now Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with marvelshop.com to grant fans early access to an exclusive Hulk action figure!
From June 23 to July 7, marvelshop.com will be the only place to order the Marvel Select Savage Hulk action figure, featuring an exclusive sculpt of the gamma-irradiated Avenger. The Savage Hulk figure wears a tattered outfit that harkens back to his origins, when nuclear scientist Dr. Bruce Banner was caught in an atomic blast and first transformed from a man into a monster.
Sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, who has previously sculpted figures of Hulk, Thor and Magneto for the Marvel Select line, this completely new figure stands approximately 9 3/4″ inches tall with 14 points of articulation. He will come packaged in the oversized Select-style blister card, perfect for in-package display, and with reference artwork on the spine for shelf storage.
Mr. Potato Head is one of those toys that will be around forever. And for all the Hulk fans out there, now there will be an Incredible Hulk version just for us. Coming the week of July 14th, the Hulk Mr Potato Head will be available for $20! Take a look at the figure below and go to this site to order one” Hulk Mr. Potato Head.
You never know when Marvel is going to drop another Incredible Hulk action figure. Thanks to Ratchet and his website, I found out about this Incredible Hulk action figure. It is basically just a larger version of a figure they have already released in a smaller version here and here. I actually like this figure in the larger scale, it still only has so much articulation and detail but it actually looks better bigger.
Minimates is putting an Infinity boxed set for Toyr-R-Us and they haven’t decided on the four figures that will be included but they have narrowed it down to six and one of those is the Hulk. The six finalists are the Armored Hulk (see the proposed figure below), Captain America, Space Armor Iron Man, Ronan the Accuser, Thane Son of Thanos, and of course Thanos. We can never have enough Incredible Hulk minimates figures so go to Minimates site and vote now: VOTE
I was looking for this for a long, long time, Jeff K. found it about 2 months ago and I have been looking since then but nothing. Of course, when I had given up and stopped looking at it, I ended up finding it at Wal-Mart when I stopped by to pick up a few things and just ran by the toy section out of habit. This toy appearance is geared towards younger fans of the tv show and that if fine with me as we should be getting our young kids excited about comics and comic book characters. The sculpt is pretty basic but looks pretty good as it is based on the cartoon. The body is hard plastic but the arms are soft rubber as you shake the figure back and forth and the arms flail about and the Hulk says various phrases. The phrases are:
“You’re no match for the Hulk!”
“No one shakes the Hulk!”
Looking at the back of the packaging, you can see they will be releasing at least a Red Hulk and Skaar action figure based on the cartoon which I am pretty excited to see. Bring on the Hulk and Hulk friends action figures!!!
Hasbro has re-released a previous Hulk action figure with a new paint job and you can find it at the Dollar type stores like Family Dollar. A new color doesn’t really help this figure as the sculpt is pretty basic and there is almost no articulation. Always happy to get a new Hulk figure but I know Hasbro can do better than this. It is a good basic figure to give to a small kid though as a beginner super hero fan.
For the Hot Topics stores, Funko had some exclusive versions of the Marvel Mini Mystery figures and that included a glow in the dark Hulk version. Have to admit, it is pretty cool. Definitely worth finding if you collect Hulk figures.
