Marvel Legends Avengers:
Age of Ultron Hulk Review

The crowning achievement on this sculpt though has to be the head sculpt. It’s a fantastic upgrade from the original. It has so much more life than the first one, and not to mention more realistic proportions, the deep-set eyes, furled brow, and the detail on the teeth are all well done making it a great example of a proper head sculpt.

The paint work on Hulk was pretty easy. The worst offender isn’t even really the paint, it’s the mismatched colors between the hard and softer plastics. Luckily, that’s not readily visible in all lights and exaggerated by the camera. In terms of actual paint – the head is again and key and done wonderfully here, the teeth especially. The paint on the pants is pretty much slop free and the little Avengers logo tampos are mostly clean – if inadvertently funny.

Hulk’s articulation is both pretty damn good and, yet, could still be better. The ball-joints at the neck, shoulders, wrists, hips, and inverted ankles are all great as are the swivels at the biceps and thighs. The double hinges at the elbows and knees have good range despite the bulk, but that came at great cost to the sculpt on the arms. The deep cuts seem really out of place with the rest of the figure. All of this articulation is still good though – I just find myself missing some boot swivels and a waist swivel. There is a decent joint at the ribcage, but I still find myself wanting to turn the figure at the waist.

Overall, while I’d like a little bit more articulation and those arms to blend in a little better, I think Hasbro has me on this one. Hulk is a definite upgrade for me. His slightly larger size and amazing head sculpt shoot him ahead of the prior figure. I will miss the tattered pants, these speedos just don’t do it for me, but overall, I’m liking this guy a ton better.

  • I think my big want from this series is Spider-Woman — I can take or leave the rest. Hulk looks good but I’ve already bought the Funko Pop and I’m not super-invested in the character. Good movie though!

    Hahahaha! The Carlton Dance at the end was absolutely brilliant!

  • I like this figure, but what I really miss is the skin texture from the last one. This one just seems so… fake. That head sculpt is pretty great, though!

    His arms are re-used, but his right fist is an all new sculpt. I do like the head more than the first, but overall I like the first much more.

    Been seeing more of the Avengers than the Spidey Hobgoblin wave but, money is the prob. Then the figuarts coming just blew me away.

    I wanna get Thanos but I need to finish Odin and Hobgoblin. The movie figs I don’t do but Hulk is a need as don’t have one. (Well used to but sold off years ago as needed space) Spiderwoman & Hellcat, & Batroc man was he a nice surprise as found old.Cap books that have one fun story with him and many other villians that would be nice in plastic. Cap undercover as Crossbones for a hint.

    Hasbro is pumping out more than I ever expected though. Gonna be a fun Marvel year.

    I thought he was the gem of the wave, and one of the best Hulks I have since the Valkyrie 2pk version (whose body was originally used for Red Hulk). Then again, I barely saw any of the FFF wave when Hasbro took over, and never saw End Hulk or…Skaar-? in person.

    Now we just need that Hulkbuster wave!!!
    (word is June/July?)

    I almost forgot about the Amazon 4pk. for a second, I thought you were talking the AoU 5pk I mentioned in the Thanos review, that has now been confirmed as EURO Disney exclusive. only new piece seems to be the RDJ head? rest is all redeco’s.

    for Amazon 4pk, Banner is going to be the selling point, but AoU redecos of “Tron” Widow, Hawkeye, and golden Thor don’t look too bad. http://marveltoynews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Amazon-Exclusive-Avengers-Legends-Bruce-Banner-Figure.jpg

    Great figure, but I am not keen on its pants. I prefer the first movie figures pants as it could pass a s a comic Hulk instead of just a movie Hulk.
