You have to love the little vinyl figures that are so popular right now. Kidrobot has a couple different styles and the latest is called a Labbit which is basically just a rabbit that looks like a Marvel character. They come blind boxed of course so you don’t know which one you are getting. The Hulk one looks pretty cool, even has split pants. I do hope they continue to make different styles like this, I am a sucker for them.
You knew there had to be more Incredible Hulk news coming out of Toy Fair 2014, right?
Minimates: The Incredible Hulk Minimates train keeps on running! Minimates is going to have another Best of Series and it will include a Bruce Banner that you can turn into a Grey Hulk!
Marvel Battle Mashers: Standing at around 5-6ish inches tall, the upcoming Marvel Battle Masters figures are bulky versions of some of the most popular Avengers and X-Men (Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Captain America). The toys have built-in action features when played with solo, but they also come with handles that fans can mount them on and control via a trigger. This basically prevents users from bashing their friends’ hands when all they really want is to bash a rival figure.
On top of the physical battle tech, these figures will also be able to activate special features within Hasbro’s upcoming Battle Masters app on iOS (and potentially other platforms). They’re an action figure, they’re a physical game, they’re a video game — they’re masters of battling toy limitations, it seems.
Individual Battle Masters will go for $15 a pop when they arrive later this year, with a special Iron Man/Hulk two-pack arriving for $25.
Toy Fair 2014 is going on right now in New York and it is the yearly show where toy companies can reveal the toys that should be coming out in the coming year or so. And of course there are a ton of Hulk related toys, as there should be. The fair still has a few days to go so hopefully we will see some more Hulk stuff shown.
Marvel Infinites 3.75″ action figures: This is the Hasbro line that replaced the Marvel Universe line. Besides the Marvel Now Hulk that has already been shown in Wave 1, there will also be a Red She Hulk in Wave 2.
Marvel Super Hero Mashers
This line of interchangable action figure pieces and parts comes with some new waves, one of which includes a Red Hulk figure.
Mr. Potato Head Mixable Mashable Heroes
Well, looks like Mr. Potato Head has gotten into the game with dressing up as multiple heroes, including the Hulk.
While the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is not my ideal Hulk cartoon, it is still always great to see a Hulk cartoon on the air. For the record, I would rather see a cartoon with just the Hulk, not all of his Hulk family. Looks like the cartoon is popular enough that there is going to be at least action figure. Eagle eye Jeff K. spotted this figure up on the Hasbro site. Here is the info for the toy:
Hulk mad – Hulk smash! This gamma-green muscle-bound superhero figure has a fury that knows no bounds. When evil makes him mad, give him a good shake and watch his massive arms smash as he growls in rage! No enemy will stand against you and your gamma-powered ally!
Figure comes with instructions.
Shake ‘N Smash Hulk figure smashes when you shake him.
Figure makes growling noises.
Soft arms for safe smashing.
Ages 4 and up
Requires 2 “AAA” batteries (demo batteries included).
Hopefully there will be more figures, maybe smaller in scale, of all the Hulk characters from the cartoon.
Hasbro will be soon releasing a line of 6″ figure set called Avengers All-Stars which includes a Hulk figure. Based on the picture, I hope these cost a dollar because they don’t look like they are worth more than that. Sculpting looks basic and pretty much no articulation. These look pretty sad, I have to be honest.
You’ve seen the previous posts on the upcoming Indestructible Hulk figure and now comes a picture of the figure on the card. The card on the new series looks good but I have to say the Hulk figure is really looking good. Sometimes the prototype can be awesome and the final figure can be really off but so far this figure is one I am really excited about getting.
The number of Hulk Minimates continues to increase which is only good news. There was a recent direct to video release of an animated movie staring Iron Man and the Hulk called Heroes United (see my previous news story. If you bought the dvd, there was a mail-away for an exclusive Hulk in Iron Man armor just like in the movie. There was also a Hulkbuster that was available. This is neat in that it is based on a video and not a comic book. Love the Minimates figures.
A couple days ago, I posted about the upcoming Avengers Infinite line that would include an Indestructible Hulk figure and now I have a better picture of it. I am hoping that this is not just a prototype but the figure they release looks this good. Hasbro did a good job of capturing the look of the comic book. Hulk faces can be very tricky to get right but the sculptor of this figure did an incredible job, it looks clean and the right proportions. I have to say I am looking forward to seeing this figure get released, I will update with a release date as soon as I hear.
Hasbro has released a new line of action figures called Super Hero Mashers where you can combine different parts of various Marvel heroes and villains and their weapons to create new characters. For each figure, the head, arms, legs, and chest can all be interchanged between figures and the bodies have spots on them to plug in various weapons that can be shared also. There are various box sizes from small size which is just the figure, medium size like the Hulk that includes a few weapons, and larger size which includes a lots of weapons and parts. I am always hoping for more realistic figures, like the former Marvel Universe line, but this is a good toy for the younger super hero fan out there. Not sure what they would do beyond the initial figures they have released but as always, am always glad to get another Hulk figure.
Thanks to eagle eye Jeff K., here is news of a new Incredible Hulk figure coming out way! The Hasbro Avengers Infinite line of toys, which replaced the Marvel Universe line, is coming out with an Indestructible Hulk action figure with his body armor like in the comic book. The picture is a little fuzzy but it looks pretty good from what I can see. Always happy to get a new Hulk action figure. Not exactly sure why they are calling him Platinum Hulk.
