Review: Avengers Hulk 6 inch scale figure - Walmart Exclusive


Hulk SMASH!  This 6 inch scaled Avengers movie figure might just be the best Avengers Movie product out there.




I love the sculpt.  I love the articulation (except the lack of a waist swivel).  I mostly love the paint (I'd like the green to be a little less drab).  I love this Hulk.

Although he seems a little bit short to be in scale with Marvel Legends and movie Avengers 6 inch figures, he sure is imposing and loads of fun to play with.  The 4 inch scale really needs this kind of love.  I don't think retailers would be able to keep them in stock if they lost the shooty weapon and added some love.  Both Mattel and Hasbro seem to think kids buy the majority of toys...  weak minded fools...

Hulk will be a sell out.  Don't pass on him if you see him, for he won't be there when you return.  Most Wal-Marts seem to be getting only 1 case of these.  When I say most, I mean most of the stores that are even carrying them.  Wal-mart has a tendency of not shipping exclusives to all of their stores.

Hulk and Hawkeye will be the first gone, followed by Loki and Thor (all One Per Case!).  Capt and Iron Man will end up pegwarming as the stock rolls in (Both Two Per Case).  I have heard rumors that these actually have a street date of May 28th, but I can neither confirm nor deny it.  (I haven't seen the box myself).  Hulk is currently being sold on eBay between $50 and $65 a piece... this should drop as stores stock their shelves.  Hopefully he will be available for everyone to find.

  1. You hear that Hasbro? Lose the shooty weapon, add some love. That's the glitch in your recipe.

    This is probably the nicest Hulk we've ever got. I just wish we had a slightly smaller version to fit in scale with the 3.75" figures.

  3. The toy manager confirmed that for me this morning. He said they were supposed to be on a "Drop pallet" which he hasn't received.

  4. Yeah I think the rumors of the street date are coming from the upcoming "mod set" date. The movie is already out. No reason to put a hard street date on anything. Plus the Retaliation and ASM street dates are coming up this weekend, coinciding with the mod set at Walmart. So people are just confusing all those to mean there must be a street date on these.

  5. i used this hulk for my 3.75' avengers... is it ok? what do you think ? Does this Hulk to big for the 3.75' avengers ? :D

    it's nearly like in the Incredible Hulk movie when the Hulk face to face with Emil Blonsky: http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa184/100granawallpaper/hulkfoto_100grana.jpg

  6. I stunned to find one of these last night at my local excuse for a Walmart. This figure is freakin' amazing!! It's exactly what the Hulk should be, a big green bad a**! He towers over my 3.75 Avengers movie figures but he does give weight to Stark's boast that they have a Hulk on their side.

  7. Personally, I think this Hulk is too big to go with the 3.75" figures, but I'm a stickler for scale, and that's just me. If you like this guy with your 3.75" Avengers, more power to you. I do wish that Hasbro would have scaled this figure down just a little bit and sold him in the 3.75" line.

  8. Hi! I'm the French Facebook Fan.

    I just wanted to say that I was looking for this Hulk to make a team with my Movie Avengers (3.75). Thanks to the photo posted by monoeits, I think thise can work.

    Tim Roth is 1.70m (according to Internet). In the picture, we can see Hulk, who must be 2.55m.
    Scarlett Johansson is 1.62m (according to Internet). With a 3.75 inch figure, we have to fing a 6.25 Hulk. This one is 6/7 inch, so it can work.

    I think...

    (Pfff, If Hasbro had made a 6" Movie Black Widow or a decent 3.75/5 Hulk... Whe shouldn't have to do this...)

    I think.

    1. Hi, French Facebook Fan! I agree that we shouldn't have to do this, Hasbro should have just given us a 6" Black Widow. Then there would be no need for the 3.75" figures.

  9. Why are people so bothered about the lack of waist swivel on figures nowadays when the figure has a diaphram joint? It's the more realistic joint anyway, nobody turns at the hip
