My MU Hulk solution...


Recommended Posts

I think any child of the 80s like myself that grew up with Star Wars and GI Joe has a place in their heart for 3.75" figures. Naturally, I'm a fan of Marvel Universe/XMOW. That being said, I cannot deny it.

 

The MU Hulk is one of the worst incarnations of the character I've ever seen. I could sit and and complain, but we've ALL done that, and it would take up many pages.

 

Anyway, the first step being throwing that MU Hulk in my parts bin. The second step was finding a suitable replacement, which was actually very easy. I had 4 rules in making my Hulk custom.

 

1. Size. 6" Marvel Legends Hulks are just TOO big. To me, personally, I like Hulk to be bigger than a person could ever be. He's been drawn so many sizes that there's not really one, standard size. We have the TV show really big human size all the way to artists that draw him as big as a house. In the first Hulk movie, I thought he was too big, but in the reboot second film, I thought they had it perfect. Big enough to pick up cars and punch tanks, but not as big as my apartment.

 

2. He has to look somewhat primal and REALLY pissed off. I don't need him to look like any specific era of Hulk, or look like a caveman or have any particular haircut.

 

3. Purple torn up pants.

 

4.Good articulation. I don't need 32 poa. Just enough to get him in any typical Hulk poses I want.

 

So...with those four rules in play...I bring you my version of MU HULK complete with themed sequential action shots...

 

Group...good size comparison. Not too big...not too small:

So, yes, he's a 5" scale movie 2 Hulk simply repainted. It's crazy how much difference a paint job can make! I saw him in the package and saw potential, but he was this drab military green with no shading, and one of his eyes were painted halfway down his cheek all melty-lookin'. They had three left on discount, and they all had melty-eye. So, I brought him home and gave him several coats of paint including 4 kinds of green, two of which I mixed myself.

I've been thinking about using the same figure for the same reasons. I just have not gotten around to buying one ( and may have some work to do to FIND one now.....).

 

Good job by the way, fits in with the MU figures just fine.

I think Hasbro realized the same thing when the use old G.I. Joe bodies as "Hulkbusters" in the Hulk movie line.

 

The only thing I didn't like about that hulk was he wasn't really poseable enough. Lots of articulation, sure, but not a lot you could DO with it.

I'd really love one. Something i hope that Hasbro does in the future with those big battle packs would be something like this (rather than giant man) and 2 small figures.
