Funko 2017 Fall Convention Exclusive Casual Hulk Figure

Funko likes to do exclusives and there were a lot of Hulk related exclusives for the Thor Ragnarok movie. One of them was for NYCC and luckily Amazon had it also. It is the “casual” Hulk Funko Pop figure. If it was just at NYCC, these would be going for $50 or more but luckily you can get this for $15 from Amazon. Fun figure!

Thor Ragnarok Chapter One in a Hulk Trilogy

Per an article on Comicbookresources:

Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk, has helped planned an three-movie arc for his character alongside Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

Though Marvel can’t produce a standalone movie for the Hulk due to tangled contractual rights, it hasn’t stopped the studio from utilizing the jade giant as a supporting character in other movies such as Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now Ruffalo has revealed that Thor: Ragnarok is the beginning of an arc that’ll span over the next three movies he appears in.

Speaking with CinemaBlend, the actor explained how this wide-spanning story came to be. “Basically, Kevin [Feige] pulled me aside before [Thor: Ragnarok], and said, ‘If you were gonna do a… if we were going to do a standalone Hulk movie, what would it be?’ And I said, ‘I think it should be this, this, this, and this and this, and ends up like this.’ And he’s like, ‘I love that. Why don’t we do that in the next three movies, starting with Thor 3 and then we go into Avengers 3 and 4.’ And I was like, ‘That sounds great!’ And so we are at the beginning of this arc.”

Thor: Ragnarok loosely adapts the Planet Hulk storyline from Marvel Comics, which explains why the Avengers teammates run into each other so far off-planet, though it’s unknown where the character will go from there. We know he’ll be developing his ability to talk, thanks to a trailer for the Thor sequel, which Ruffalo explains is an important aspect of the character’s evolution.

“Hulk speaking is the start to separating of these two individuals, these identities in this split-identity person, and where that’s going to end up going. So it was really interesting to me,” the actor explained. “He’s like a baby! He’s like a five year old or six year old. So he has the same syntax, he has the same world view, and so it was fun. It’s like Chris [Hemsworth] – we all got to reinvent our characters in this.”

S.H. Figurarts Gladiator Hulk Action Figure

And there is another Gladiator Hulk action figure! This one is from S.H. Figuarts and looks just as good as some of the other figures. It is on display at NYCC convention right now. It will be available through BigBadToyStore and based on pricing of their other Figurarts figures, this will probably be around $110 or so. It is not listed on their site yet but hopefully soon. Figure looks to have some great detail and looks to be a great addition to the ever growing Gladiator Hulk collection.



Incredible Hulk and Gladiator Hulk Pin Mate Wooden Figures

Well I guess calling them figures may be a stretch since they are basically just wooden painted pins. Didn’t know anything about these until I my gammabro Jadegiant posted about them. Looks like they come in 4 inch and 2 inch versions and they are coming out with Gladiator Hulk sets for the Thor Ragnarok movie plus just a regular Hulk. The regular Hulk pin mate is $12.99 which seems a bit pricey for a piece of painted wood. You can find all of them for pre-order at EntertainmentEarth on their website.

Amazon Exclusive Casual Hulk Funko POP Figure Up For Order

If you were like me and were dreading paying the over inflated price from scalpers for the NYCC Exclusive Casual Hulk Funko POP figure, then worry no more! Apparently the figure is an exclusive between the NYCC convention and Amazon, the only difference is the sticker on the front of the box. Given I take the figures out, doesn’t make a difference to me, I would rather pay $15 then $35 or more on eBay for the NYCC version. Go order now before they are sold out!

Beast Kingdom Gladiator Hulk Egg Attack Action Figure

Okay I have no idea why these line of figures are called Egg Attack Action but I have to say they look pretty cool. The figure looks to be a little squished in shape but has a very unique design to it. Details on the figure are listed below but if you pre-order it, the figure comes with a change-out face plate. Based on the images, it looks to be pretty posable too which is good. Cost is $109 so not super high but not dirt cheap either. You can order it from BBTS here: EAA Hulk.
