Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Marvel Universe She-Hulk

12 10 2012

It’s rare for me these days to collect Hasbro’s Marvel Universe 3.75″ action figure line these days. I decided to stay clear of that scale because 6″ is just better in my opinion. Plus I’m running out of shelf space.

I was at my local comic shop browsing around and She-Hulk caught my eye. She’s sports her current design, nice sculpt, paint apps were descent, and good packaging design not to mention she’s a fan favorite of mine. I was hesitant to buy her because she was priced at $12.99 but I had to consider the time and gas I’d waste trying to find her at retail stores like Toysrus or Target. So I caved and picked her up.

11/12/2012: Was at my local Target and saw this figure on sale for $7.99. Finally, I can pick another of her and open her up. 1st thing you get as an extra is this tiny card shot of a She-Hulk comic. Honestly, this is pretty pointless to have. I really wish for a display stand.

Out of package, She-Hulk is pretty impressive. Areas of dark shading is painted in to give off that pro-artist feel. Not clean but descent enough. The purple used on her is metallic…very cool. She has a very unique, non-reused mold which makes me happy. Articulation is awesome. You get all the typical points but I’m loving the double-jointed elbows and knees. Thigh swivel is also a nice touch.

Close up, She-Hulk has pretty developed muscles for that body builder look. Curvy!

Her head sculpt is the best female sculpt I’ve seen the Marvel Universe line. The facial and hair sculpting rock.
