The Target stores put up a display about a month before the Avengers Age of Ultron movie came out, I just forgot to post an image of it. The display includes a very cool 3D display of what looks to be a packaged Incredible Hulk figure busting out of the packaging. I asked the store if I could have this after the display time was up but I got one story that said they can not give them away, they have to throw them away and another story that they have to give them back to Disney. Either way, it is a huge bummer. I would love to have this display in my room with my actual action figures.
This came out last year but I never got around to getting it, I am not even sure if it was available in stores or not. The Mr. Potato Head line was doing a bunch of super-heroes so I knew they would eventually get around to doing the Hulk. Pretty neat figure, has two slot locations for the arms. Wish it came with a different mouth or eyes. My youngest daughter noticed that his butt doesn’t open to store his pieces, of course I don’t think they would all fit anyways.
Marvel Select, the division that makes very huge, heavy, and detailed action figures, is coming out with a Hulkbuster Iron Man figure. The figure looks cool but it is based off of the comic book version of the Hulkbuster, not the movie version. I think I would have preferred the movie version but it is still a cool looking figure that I will be sure to be picking up.
I’ve gotten the previous Hulk Funko POP! figures because they are so darn cool looking. I recently got the Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk and had to get the Hulkbuster figure to go with it but the only way to get it was to sign up for the new Funko Marvel Collectors Corp program where you get a box with random stuff along with the Hulkbuster POP! The box also came with a t-shirt (there were four versions, unfortunately I got the Thor version instead of the Hulk, an Ultron patch, a Captain America pin, a small Ultron figure and a Guardians comic book with exclusive Art Adams cover. It also came in a very cool looking shipping box. The Hulkbuster is heavier than I thought it was going to be and it very cool looking. Lots of great detail, it is worth signing up for the program just for this POP! figure.
I am always glad to see a new Incredible Hulk figure hit the shelves, no matter what it looks like. Lucky for me this is a good looking figure. Actually it is a great looking figure. The body of the sculpt is a good sculpt, it’s a pretty basic body but still good detail. The key to this figure is his face. A bad face sculpt can really ruin a figure but the sculptor on this figure did an amazing job. Sometimes the prototype figure ends up looking better than the actual figure but in this case the face looks better than the prototype shown on the back. Bravo on this figure. The figure is a little tricky to stand up, he has to lean over a little bit but not too bad. Go out and try to find this figure now!
The latest wave of Legends figures is finally hitting stores and I was lucky enough to find a set at Target. Had to pick up this Hellcat figure as she was a Defender for quite some time, many times with the Hulk, so it needs to be added to my collection. A really nice sculpt except she is a little hard to get to stand up. It seems that a lot of the women Legends figures that I have gotten have a hard time standing straight. Still a good looking figure. Comes with pieces to a build of figure of Thanos of his head and one arm.
A few years ago, a company called Funko started releasing these little bobble-heads with black, round eyes. Needless to say, they instantly became hugely popular and there are Pop! figures for every popular movie or tv show out there. With the Avengers Age of Ultron coming up, Funko has started to release their figures related to that movie. Found the Hulk at Target this week and strangely enough I didn’t see any of the other figures from the wave. This Hulk figure looks just as good as the first Hulk they put out. He looks even more angry than the first one, go out and get one now!
It looks like Sideshow and Hot Toys are releasing a new version of the Incredible Hulk with the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron movie. See the figure specs below along with some great images along. Pricing is $374.99 and it will ship between November 2015 and January 2016. The figure looks good except for the hair. It looks a bit too poofy for my tastes otherwise another great looking figure.

This is another Hulk figure that goes along with the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron movie. It is a pretty tall figure but is mainly just made to be interactive. The plastic is very hard and there are only four points of articulation. It looks like his head is supposed to move but it doesn’t seem to when I try and I don’t want to break it. You push a button in his chest and he has a multitude of sayings. The cool thing is that if you push his button when the figure is near a Hulkbuster Titan Hero Tech, they will talk to each other. The Hulkbuster looks pretty darn cool so I am hoping to pick that one up to. The sculpting on this figure is really good, the face likeness is good compared to what was in the movie. Wish it was a bit more action figurery but still a cool Hulk figure to have standing up on your shelf. The sayings are:
“Nothing can stop the Hulk”
‘sounds of foot stomping’
“Avengers Hulk’s friends”
“Hulk smash puny robot”
‘sounds of cars getting smashed and car alarm going off’
‘sounds of destruction and things breaking’
“Hulk’s the strongest!”
Well, the only new item I could find was that Hasbro will be releasing a Korg 3 3/4″ figure this year. After so many years after the great Planet Hulk storyline, I am surprised they are finally making him now. Happy to see him, but very surprised.
