Shipping on April 18, 2014 is the Bruce Banner and Hulk Sixth Scale Figure Set by Hot Toys. This two pack is part of the Movie Masterpiece Series from Hot Toys and distributed by SideshowCollectibles.com.
The set retails for $509.99 and as of this posting there are less than 10 remaining, if you want to grab this set, click here and hope they are still there! This comes in a massive box ( it even has a handle) and weighs in at around 15 pounds! Check out some of the packaged shots in the gallery.
As with most Hot Toys figures, the box and package are all collector friendly. Bruce is packed on top of the Hulk and you are able to unpack both of them and all of the accessories without any damage. It has a perfect likeness of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner in The Avengers and authentic likeness of Hulk.
Bruce Banner comes with a body with over 30 points of articulations, figure stand with Bruce Banner nameplate, several pair of interchangeable hands, his brown suit, chitauri scepter, glasses and watch.
The Hulk features movie-accurate facial expression and detailed wrinkles, hair and skin texture. The skin texture reveals veins, hair and tendons and sports 20 points of articulations with built-in joints in neck and arms which allow flexible movement. Hulk also has the separate rolling eyeballs which allows you to move the eyes anywhere you want independently. He has two pairs of interchangeable palms including a set of relaxed palms and a set of forceful fists and his signature grey shorts.
You also get a diorama base with fallen Chitauri footsoldier and metal-like structural steel.
The head on Bruce is sculpted by Kojun and painted by JC. Hong and it's dead on. Anyone who even glances at this for a second will see Mark Ruffalo. Hot Toys is known for amazing details, and this is no exception. It is perfect!
He comes in his brown blazer, pants and shoes but you can easily take off the jacket to re-create scenes from the movie (Hot Toys even included some extra buttons for the shirt in case you go a little Hulk crazy)
The Chitauri scepter fits nicely in the custom right hand made to hold it, and his iconic glasses are also included (they take a few seconds to get on, but there are slots on either side of the sideburns for them to fit in)
Hulk is amazing, he is the same one that was released earlier and I reviewed back in August, you can see that full video review at this link. Hulk stands approximately 17" tall and has a head sculpt with separate rolling eyeballs with both relaxed palms and "smash" fists and his signature ragged grey shorts.
What I love most about him is the relaxed hands that allow you to actually mold his hands around just about anything!
This set is a must own for any Hot Toys or Avengers Collector. I had so much fun with this review, check out some goofy shots in the gallery that I just had to include!
