Today’s Arrival: Hasbro Marvel Legends (Hit Monkey Series) Red She-Hulk

25 01 2013

Another figure in the Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Hit Monkey series is the Red She-Hulk (Betty Ross). I got this one out of package off eBay for about retail price but without the Hit Monkey build-a-figure part. She sports by all accounts a new female sculpt and is taller than recent Marvel Legends females like Madame Mask and Hope Summers. She comes with a very saturated red skin color (which kinda burns the eyes) & yellow eerie colored eyes. Her facial expression has no charisma which is kind weird to me. She could have used a sinister smirk.

Her suit has a combat design done in three colors: black with touches of purple and silver.

She includes a very sizable and well designed sword that can only fit in her open right hand. It has a very nice metallic red paint job accompanied by flat silver.

She scales almost the same in height when posed with the original She-Hulk (Jennifer Walters). She’s just a tad shorter 😥

Marvel Legends Red She-Hulk 06

She has all the typical female articulation points and relatively tight joints all around except in the ankles which are just a bit loose to give you dynamic posing problems. She’s easier to articulate in the thighs than She-Hulk which is very much appreciated by this collector. I do wish she had double-jointed elbows rather than a ball hinge for a better range of bending motion. The sword is a tad loose when held in hand so there will be sword holding problems. Like all females with long hair, she has problems with her head range of motion. Still, even though it may sound like I’m putting her down and I really like this figure a lot and recommend her to Hulk fans out there.

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.
