It's obvious that Red Hulk has won the popularity award over the original Green Hulk and it is of no surprise why. With his ferocious attitude, military tactics and unstoppable power; Red is the new Green. The Red Hulk's demonically charged and menacing look has been interpreted into collectible form by various companies but none have been able to accurately capture comic book artist's Ed McGuiness iconic look for the character until now. Thanks to Kotobukiya and the craftsmanship of the talented Erick Sosa, fans can now own the definitive Red Hulk statue.
PACKAGING: The new Red 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 Red Hulk statue from different angles. The package also features a preview image of the upcoming Doctor Doom statue and a mini bio and photo of artist Erick Sosa. The top flap of the box features the word "HULK" embossed into it which is barely visible from certain angles but a nice added touch regardless.
SCULPT: The level of detail put into this Red Hulk statue is truly incredible and captures the design and style of comic artist Ed McGuiness. The Red Hulk's monstrous and chiseled physique is rendered flawlessly in this three-dimensional resin piece. Rulk's body is dynamically posed cocking his arm back and ready to punch which goes great with the upcoming Hulk statue.
The piece includes two interchangeable heads which easily attach to the neck magnetically allowing collectors to display their Red Hulk with their favorite expression. The facial expressions on both of the interchangeable heads are rendered flawlessly and look amazing. The RULK statue stands a top a realistic volcanic environment base which accents the piece very well. The red behemoth measures 13 inches in height from base to top which conveniently fits inside most curio cabinets or shelving units.
PAINT: At first glance it becomes obvious why this piece is part of Kotobukiya's Fine Art series. The vibrantly detailed paint work on Red Hulk breathes life into the already epic piece with its wide range of red hues.
The volcanic display base is beautifully detailed with a broad range of paint techniques and colors which give it a life-like environmental look.
Both of the interchangeable portraits have slightly shinier finish on them which is most likely as a result of the material they are made out of. This new Marvel Fine Art statue is painted as such and Red Hulk looks so good that it seems as if he jumped right out of the pages of the Hulk comics.
OVERALL: Kotobukiya's Marvel Fine Art line keeps getting better and better with every new release and this amazing new Red Hulk statue stands as proof of this. Whether you are a general Marvel or Hulk fan, adding this incredible statue to your collection is a no-brainer as it will ultimately dominate your statue collection. The Kotobukiya Fine Art Red Hulk statue will be released in July for approximately $200.00 and is available for pre-order right now directly through Kotobukiya's website and select fine retailers such as BigBadToyStore.com.
