Thread: We bought a Hulk

    We bought a Hulk

    Well, actually a couple.
    I never liked the height of Hulk in his ď8 inchĒ scale, I thought he should be taller (was it the cost of plastic?) so I never bothered. I saw the larger bodies and the articulated bodies online, and bought a decent OG Hulk figure and a new body. Well, unless itís Lou Ferigno (whom I understand is shorter) itís still too small.
    Bring on the 12Ē. Even that is an overstatement, heís 11 1/2 too. Why the diminutive height. I think itís closer to his comic roots size, I makes him 8-9í tall.
    He had overstretched elastics and was naked and dirty. I bought O-rings, and theyíre perfect. Iíve been cleaning him with peroxide, itís doing a job.
    Do you think I should soak him in peroxide, who knows whatís inside him, even his arms and legsÖ I assume removing the o-rings is best. I was going to buy black pants, with the elastics, but forgot where they are from.

    Agreed that the 12" fits in well with the 8" Mego Marvels. Have it setup.that way.

    I always liked the Famous Covers Hulk with the Mego Marvels. If you could mount the vintage head to the toy biz body I think that would be perfect.

    Oh wow, toy biz sounds interesting… I finally put the head on the taller body, I’m not bad with the colouring. I could use some constructive criticism about the arms…
    His shoulders are out too far, and either too tight or too loose. What if I were to increase the arm holes, to bring them in a bit? They are ok(ish) with a shirt/fur costume.
    He’s kinda doing the Fortnight dance, if I’m honest
    Im referring to 8” new body. Was famous covers 8” plus.
    I put a Neptunian on the old body, need a costume and elbow pins at some point.
