    Well, first and foremost I do not have ANY pictures available. I just got him today before work and I cannot "photograph" things while at work since I work in a bank. So, with that out of the way.

    Hulk's tank mode is something, again, Hasbro seemingly ripped out of the Godzilla universe. It is bulky, wide, and quite brutish looking with practically no articulation. The canon can move out (undocumented feature) or it can move up and down. There is NO sideways articulation. His "weapon" as the package calls it is a sonic weapon. Sadly, his tank mode is just a big hulk of highly detailed green plastic.

    Since I'm no good at describing transformations, I'll just describe the final robot mode. Standing ABOUT as tall as Grimlock, and about as thick, he has elongated arms and pretty good leg articulation. Due to his punching gimmick, he has NO waist articulation unless you disable it (as I have, and will upload in a couple of days a how-to) and his upper arms can move up and down. The shoulders do move outwards, but they spring back as part of another undocumented Mega Clap type feature. I'm trying to figure out how to change that. On his hands he has a solid molded thumb, and all four other fingers can do a grasping type motion without any springs. They are VERY cool and can hold some Hot Wheels cars with ease.

    He has a surprising amount of articulation and is an AWESOME figure, especially with the punch mechanism disabled. With it enabled, so to speak, he is more block-ish and harder to dynamically pose. Speaking of block-ish, there is that matter of the freakish looking Frankenstein head.

    Most have seen it, and most have been repelled by it. The designers went to the extent of including a black molded toupee on top of Hulk. It looks like crap and ruins a decent looking head. The head reminds me of the Star Wars Transformers Chewbacca figure from the Millenium falcon. They tried to recreate some "organic" looking elements like face muscles and it doesn't look that great and should've created a BALD Hulk head.

    BUT, for the customizers I can say Hulk would make a good Bludgeon custom or whatever you wish.

    Considering I gave Iron Man a 7.5 because of his legs and cheap looking yellow paint I'm going to give the Hulk the same score of 7.5 because of his head and overall features. If he had a better molded head, I would've given him an 8.0. He really is that good, and that solid of a figure. IF there is going to be a Gray version I'd say hold out for that as the green is more of a military green, but there is a lot of it.

    I just got Hulk today as well. Lets get right to it. This figure rocks.

    Yes, the turret can raise and extend in tank mode. No the turret can't turn, but with a tank with such a wide tread base you can easily imagine this tank spinning on axis with ease. The detail on the tank threads is utterly fantastic, and unexpected.

    Transformation is just amazing. So many times, I was blown away because I had set my expectations so low. His arms are just amazing to transform. The beauty in in all the little details, and how perfectly all of his little panels hide away and are stowed so toughtfully.

    Once in bot mode he rocks. The articulation is top notch, and he is so fun and menacing. Your imaginatopm just takes off as soon as you pick him up and start fiddling and putting him into poses. Sure his head isn't the best, but this doesn't carry too much weight with me. Hulk has messy hair, this Hulk tank/mech does not.

    Final score 9.0/10.0 Amazing !


    You can tell the designer really loved this project.

    Me too. Must hold.back.and.be.patient. Grrr! I hate waiting too! I was blown away once I saw the first video review of this guy correctly transformed. I hope Wolverine turns out as good.

    My Hulk's turret is pretty loose. Anyone's like this too?

    mine won't stay together, but he won't be in that mode very often so oh well.

    Edit: here's two quick pics I took to show the shoulders transformed outward, which seems to be not done by a lot of people:

    Elsewhere, someone said Hulk's tank mode looks like one of the tanks from the Atari 2600 game Combat. Somehow that makes me like it more. :)

    Seconding the awesomeness. Hulk is definitely in my top two for the Mavel TFs so far (With Venom), possibly even #1. For those with loose tanks, what's not holding together? I've found that if you make sure to tab everything together properly, it's pretty damn solid.

    Here's a few pics comparing him to the other Marvel figs:

    Hulk's definitely the best of the Marvel bots, although Venom looks bada$$ in vehicle mode.

    Venom's bot mode is a LOT better looking in person than in still shots. I'm not sure why, I've tried to catch it in photos but haven't been able to. Doesn't help that a lot of the promo shots have him mistransformed.

    got this guy yesterday. amazing. he's sweet. what i can't believe, is that people are complaining about the 15 dollar price tag on these. they easily have the mass of most voyagers, 15 bucks for them is a steal.

    I absolutely LOVE Crossovers Hulk! Hasbro(or the club) seriously need to give him a new head and put him out as an actual Transformer, I'd buy two.

    I'll definately get the gray Hulk, and if a red version was made I'd get that as well!

    Got one now (can barely stand to look at the rest of them, and I'm trusting my instincts more and more)

    It IS an Atari Combat tank! That's awesome in itself.

    There's a few things here or there that keep it from being quite up to the same standard as most regular TF-branded TFs, but far closer than the Star Wars TFs IMO.

    I'm damn tempted to get the upcoming gray version, and bashing it into a new BM Tankor or War Within Grimlock.

    Personally I think he's JUST as good as a normal Transformer.


    As for the others...ugh...no interest there, which is probably a good thing.:lol

    Wow, I'm surprised this guy is as good as he is. Definitely better then Spiderman. He has good posability, he feels hefty, and is actually pretty large and imposing, definitely warranting being at a pricepoint between a deluxe and a Voyeger even if it didn't have a marvel tie in.

    I'd almost say he got special attention in this line knowing it would release around the movie. Anyways, my only real problems with him is that his ratcheted joint are REALLY tight, and his arm panels tend to come loose.

    This dude's awesome, huge suprise. Would make a kickass Bonecrusher custom if you could throw a shovel on it , swap heads and paint.
    He has cool hands! Heavy for his size and lots of folding panels. One of those figs you have a blast figuring out without the instructions. Well designed so he wont break easily anywhere.

    Tank mode's nice and compact, but that cannon sucks

    took this pic before fully figuring out his shoulders :lol
