It’s not very often that I find myself writing a review for a figure weeks after I reviewed its exclusive repaint, but such is the case with tonight’s subject: the Marvel Legends Abomination Build-A-Figure. Not only was this figure released after its own repaint, but this Abomination BAF is actually selling for more than the SDCC Exclusive version! But despite which version seems to be in higher demand, is this really the better iteration of Hulk’s arch-enemy? Let’s take a look…Continue Reading →
Sideshow Collectibles didn’t unveil the plethora of new Marvel pieces at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 that they usually do, but the ones that they did show were some of the most jaw-dropping, gorgeous statues at the event. And one of those pieces was among the most impressive Wolverine (and Hulk!) statues that I’ve ever seen. I’ve been looking forward to it since July, but the day has arrived–the Sideshow Exclusive Hulk vs. Wolverine Maquette is now up for order! But all this magnificence comes at a monstrous price…Continue Reading →
Today is the big day that Hasbro will be selling the remainder of their SDCC 2016 exclusives stock online, so what better day to look at another heavy-hitter from the SDCC Marvel Legends The Raft set than today, right? I expected him to be one of the most sought-after figures from the set on the aftermarket, but the Marvel Legends Abomination is actually one of the least expensive figures from the set! Is the lack of interest in this Abomination figure justified…?Continue Reading →
While the Marvel Legends 6″ line is definitely Hasbro’s marquee superhero product line these days, that doesn’t mean that Hasbro has left the Marvel Universe/Marvel Legends 4″ collectors out to dry!
Hasbro announced a multitude of new 3.75″ Marvel Legends 2017 figures at SDCC 2016, and has sent out hi-res photos of the first wave, including X-23 Wolverine, Moon Knight, Maestro and more!Continue Reading →
What with how Hasbro has to-date only revealed two of the six figures in the 2016 Marvel Legends Captain America Wave 3 officially, it’s no surprise they haven’t shown off the Marvel Legends Abomination Build-A-Figure yet at all. Even so, this wave is now hitting overseas and finding its way into collectors’ hands–which means that we’re now getting our first good look at the figures in the series out of their packaging and the completed Abomination figure…Continue Reading →
NECA has been teasing their 1/4 Marvel collectors with him for several years now, but finally, finally… NECA has a Hulk! And not just any Hulk, but a really, really big Hulk! Standing a full 24″ (two feet!) tall, it’s the biggest quarter-scale action figure NECA has ever made: the NECA 1/4 Hulk figure is now up for order and debuts in public at New York Toy Fair 2016 this weekend!Continue Reading →
I wasn’t in the market for yet another vinyl figure line to collect (seeing as I have a major weakness for them), but I fell in love at first sight with the Funko Marvel Dorbz figures when I first saw them at Toy Fair 2015. Even so, the line got off to a rocky start at retail. However, interest seems to have picked up, as the recently-released Marvel Dorbz Chase figures of Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales and Red Hulk are selling for $50+ each online!Continue Reading →
One good Hulk deserves another. And evidently, Sideshow thinks that three good Hulks deserve another, because after the enormous success of the three Premium Format Hulk statues they released last year, Sideshow has a new Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk Maquette going up for order this afternoon.
But if you wanna add this big collectible to your collection, you’re gonna have a big bill to go with him…Continue Reading →
Although most of the core movie Avengers became immortalized as Figma figures in 2014, one of the four characters originally shown off for the line a few years ago simply did not materialize.
But following up on Bandai releasing their SH Figuarts Hulk and NECA finally debuting their 1/4 Hulk, Max Factory is finally ready to get in on the Jade Giant action as well: the imported Figma Hulk figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Although he’s easily in the popularity upper-echelon of characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because of his immense size, movie Hulk doesn’t tend to get as much merchandising as Captain America or Iron Man or even Thor.
But after three years of teases, NECA Toys is finally giving the big green guy the quarter-scale figure treatment: the long-awaited 24″ Hulk NECA figure was revealed at SDCC 2015!Continue Reading →
Remember that Marvel Comics crossover from a few years ago called “Siege”, where the Sentry rips Ares in half? Well, I’m picturing that scene as Funko continues their siege on my wallet, ripping my bank account in half with a parade of can’t-skip collectibles. Funko Hikari are my Kryptonite, and another pair have now been announced: the Funko Hikari Blue Deadpool and regular Hulk figures are now up for order! And with discounts, you can get them for almost half price! Read on…Continue Reading →
When Diamond Select Toys announced the three figures making up the totality of their Avengers Age of Ultron Marvel Select lineup, the choices weren’t met with universal praise. In fact, many collectors turned their noses up entirely at the AOU Hulk and Thor figures. But now that the Avengers 2 Marvel Select Hulk figure I ordered online has arrived, it’s very clear to me that (redo or not) this is an outstanding (and humongous) movie Hulk action figure that utterly smashes every other AOU Hulk figure released thus far…Continue Reading →
Remember the awesome speedboat chase sequence in “Iron Man 3”, or the climactic battle between a tank-driving Mandarin and Iron Man? How about the slick War Machine Mark II armor making it’s debut in the same movie? No…? That’s because all,of that stuff ended up on the cutting-room floor of “Iron Man 3”. And it looks like the proud tradition of deleted material being captured in collectible form is continuing–the exclusive Kotobukiya Rampaging Grey Hulk ARFTX+ statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Over my years of attending cons, I’ve passed people wearing shirts with the slogan “Anime: Crack is Cheaper” dozens of times. Well, I think that motto could be modified a bit into a very appropriate “Collecting Vinyl Figures: Crack is Cheaper”. I have a serious vinyl figure addiction that extends to many lines–but not the Medicom Marvel Retro Sofubi line. At least, not until now–the Retro Rocket Raccoon & Hulk Sofubi figures are now up for order!Continue Reading →
If some hoodlum ever stopped me on the street and demanded at gunpoint to know what my favorite line was that I saw among the hundreds of new toys at the 2015 Toy Fair in February, I’d be able to answer without much thought all all: Funko Hikari. And while most of the Hikari at the show that caught my eye were Star Wars-themed, a whole assortment of Hulks debuted there as well. And the time for the first Hulk has now come–the exclusive Funko Hikari Metallic Hulk is now up for order!Continue Reading →
