There Red Hulk has been causing mayhem and laying ruin to everything in his path and it is time for this big red bully to be put down like a stray dog. The Green Hulk is ready to put the red gamma-filled imposter in his place and prove once and for all that he is no match for the original. Thanks to Kotobukiya and the craftsmanship of the talented Kreative3 headlined by master sculptor Erick Sosa, fans can now own the definitive Green Hulk statue.
PACKAGING: The new Hulk statue is housed within a simple yet elegant white box with gold foil lettering. The back of the box features an image gallery of the Hulk statue from different angles. The package also features a mini-bio and photo of artist Erick Sosa discussing the inspiration behind sculpting this piece. The top flap of the box features the word "HULK" embossed into it, which is barely visible from certain angle,s but a nice added touch regardless.
SCULPT: The level of detail put into this Hulk statue is truly incredible and captures the design and style of comic artist Ed McGuiness with a classic twist to it. The Hulk's monstrous and chiseled physique is rendered flawlessly in this three-dimensional resin piece. Hulk's body is dynamically posed lunging forward as if he is ready to plow anything in his way with his fists. The pose on Hulk looks great as a stand-alone piece but even better when displayed next to the Red Hulk statue.
The big green behemoth measures approximately 13 inches in height from base to the top of his head; conveniently fitting inside most curio cabinets or shelving units. The facial expression on the piece depicts traits of both raging anger and rabid insanity which characterizes the Hulk's fierce and volatile nature. The statue stands a top a realistic mountainous terrain base which is crumbling beneath the green behemoth's feet.
PAINT: There is a reason why Kotobukiya has named their Marvel statue collection "Fine Art Series". The vibrantly detailed paint work on Hulk breathes life into the already epic piece with its wide range of light and dark green hues. The facial details on Hulk are meticulously painted with accuracy and precision which results in a fantastic looking piece. The rocky display base is beautifully detailed with a broad range of paint techniques and colors which give it a life-like environmental look. This new Marvel Fine Art statue is painted as such and Hulk looks so good that it seems as if he is literally jumping right out of the pages of the comics.
OVERALL: Kotobukiya's Marvel Fine Art line keeps getting better and better with every new release and this amazing new Hulk statue, collectors can now display both Hulks facing off. Whether you are a general Marvel or Hulk fan, adding this statue to your collection is a no-brainer as it will ultimately dominate your statue collection.
