S.H. Figuarts The Avengers Hulk – Avengers Assemble Edition Figure Review

S.H. Figuarts The Avengers Hulk – Avengers Assemble Edition Figure Review

 

Bandai Tamashii Nations is offering a new Hulk figure in their S.H. Figuarts line, and is inspired from the 2012 film The Avengers, which introduced these iconic Marvel characters to an entire new generation of fans, movie goers, and an entirely new audience that the comics had not. The Avengers Assemble Edition of Hulk joins other Avengers in this new line, including Thor, Iron Man, Loki, and Black Widow and Hawkeye, which are available to pre-order now.

This special edition of Hulk is based on the Battle of New York scenes in the film, where the Avengers are seen fighting the Chitauri, and then Loki at the end of the battle.

Thank you to Bluefin for providing their S.H. Figuarts The Avengers Iron Man Mark 6 (Battle Of New York Edition) figure for review.

Availability: June 2021

Hulk is packaged in the standard S.H. Figuarts window box, with artwork inspired from the film on the front, as well as images of the figure on the sides and back. Hulk is in a plastic tray with his heads and hands for safe keeping, including an instruction sheet behind the cardboard insert behind it.

 

This new Hulk figure is everything you would want in the character, a big, bulky, menacing looking sculpt that towers over your other Avengers , Loki, and other S.H. Figuarts figures, all while keeping true to the likeness. The figure uses most of the parts previously used for the Infinity War Hulk figure, with a brand new upper thighs as these pants are sculpts and not painted, with the pants torn at the knees.

 

 

Hulk is given three head sculpts with a unique facial expression inspired from various scenes during the battle of New York, and each is given great facial details and paint applications such as white teeth, eyes, eye brows, and the screaming head has a sculpted and painted tongue. The hair is sculpted, with a green wash over the black. These three heads are new for the release, and gives you the option to pose him in various ways as he smashes the Chitauri.

His chest has a wash over it to indicate hair, and the muscular physique includes veins. The skin has sculpted textures which are better viewed when looking up close to it, which only makes it more realistic looking. The pants are the only clothing he’s wearing, and are painted in purple with a glossy finish. The torn parts have grey deco along the bottom and is made of a softer plastic.

 

 

He also includes three sets of interchangeable hands, including closed fisted, grabbing, and an articulated hand with two hinges, and an articulated thumb.

The sculpt is given the standard articulation for S.H. Figuarts, including a ball jointed head, hinged neck, butterfly shoulders, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, ball jointed wrist, ball jointed torso, ball jointed stomach, swivel-hinged hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles. A set of his hands are also articulated, including two hinged (one a tigger finger) fingers and a ball jointed thumb.

Overall, Hulk is a great figure with a great likeness to the 2012 film. The deco, especially the sculpted textures on the skin, musical physique and attention to detail came out great. This is surely one figure that you don’t want to miss out on. Make sure to add this figure, and other 2012 Avengers Assemble figures to your collection now.
