Red Hulk: Marvel Universe Figure Review

I like Rulk better.

The Red Hulk's only coolness factor to me was that he was initially drawn by Ed McGuiness. At the time I thought that he was another phase of the Hulk, so I didn't pay him no mind. But actually knowing who he is, makes him kinda cool. Because as I was explaining to my brother about the Red Hulk (he had no idea) I also mentioned how I liked Joe Fixit and The Professor aka Smart Hulk.

So Rulk is like both of them combined.




Why Did I Buy This Figure?: I had noticed Rulk before, he was originally released around the same time Target had their Marvel Legends Exclusives. But back then I was into Sigma 6 so I decided to not buy him. But at New York Comic Con I had seen the regular Hulks on display as well as The Thing. So I was aware of him.

Now that Marvel Universe can be purchased at half the price sometimes, it's more tempting to pick them up.


Where Did I Buy This Figure?: My first figure was at Target for the retail price of $7.99. I picked up some more when Toys R Us had their 2 for 10.99 sale.



Face Sculpt: This guy is one ugly SOB, I like the look from the front view. But looking at the head from an angle and from the side. Not so cool. But the Yellow eyes are a nice touch.



Accessories: All you get is a S.H.I.E.L.D file, which is now extinct. Rulk does not need a base so i don't miss it as much. But we really need to get extras with these guys. I'm guessing Hasbro is wracking their brain thinking on what to include with these guys. NO LAUNCHERS PLEASE! Give us flight stands or energy blasts.



Articulation: Lazy me. When I update the picture I will post it but for now here's what you get.
  • Swivel Neck
  • Ball Hinged Shoulders
  • Swivel Wrist
  • Ball Hinged Elbows
  • Ball Hinged Hips
  • Ball Hinged Torso
  • Ball Hinged Knees
  • Hinged Ankles



Final Verdict: This is my first Hulk, well my first old school Hulk. I got World War Hulk before that. So I like him. Despite the downsides that most reviewers give the Hulk legs online. I like this figure. He's massive and colorful. Red Hulk like!



Should You Buy It?: I say yes. Unlike the Hulk who is a mainstay of the Marvel Universe and will get many re-releases. Red Hulk is a character that is fairly new. We're lucky enough to get him already.
Besides he's a constant reminder that gamma rays will get rid of your mustache and wrinkles.

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

Anyway..

MY TOP 10 HALO REACH ACTION FIGURES!!!

 10. Carter:



The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.
