Thank you to Hasbro for providing their San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Exclusive – Marvel 80th Anniversary Marvel Legends Incredible Hulk Figure for review.

The Grandmaster and The Collector 2-pack are packaged in circular window box with movie logos and artwork around it, and the figure are securely packaged in plastic trays with inserts that include artwork from the films. The package opens so body figures can face towards you, and on the back has movie posters with a brief bio of the characters.

The Grandmaster is based on the likeness of Jeff Goldblum, and is sculpted and painted in a gold cloak with a red belt, red and blue shirt, grey pants, gold sandals and his fingernails and toenails are painted blue. The cloak is removable, and is made of a hard plastic. The likeness is really good to his onscreen appearance, especially the head sculpt, which has a blue stripe on his chin, and grey hair. There also doesn’t appear to be any/at least nothing significant with the difference in paint applicants to this version and the Grandmaster/Korg 2-pack. Both versions come with the the Melt Stick, and this exclusive version comes with a puddle/pile of goo of someone he melted, which he can also stand on.

 

The Collector is based on the likeness of Actor Benicio del Toro, and he is sculpted and painted in his red and black outfit, with gold, red and blue beads hanging on the front, and a removable black and white coat that has sculpted textures. The outfit also has some silver details, and the red part of the outfit has some sculpted details. The left arm is sculpted and painted to look like the coat, which has a grey sleeve with black spots, and a sculpted pattern on the edges. The right arm is mostly black with red deco with the sculpted details down by the wrist, and the pants are cast in black. The head sculpt has a great likeness to the actor, as well as spot on as far as on-screen likeness. Included with the Collector is the orb containing the Power Stone, and an extra head with goggles.

Overall, Hasbro is filling in the gaps of the movie collection nicely, and this 2-pack has two important characters that you need to own in your collection. This is a nice set of two previously unreleased characters, and given their importance in the Marvel Universe, this is one nice con exclusive.
