As a character, Hulk is a God send. He is infinitely strong, dumb as an ox, and has the speech patterns that make a child seem like a linguist. Most of all he is a lot of fun to through into situations and the temptation to have him everywhere is great which is why I try to avoid using him.
With Hulk I rarely, if ever, have to work too hard on his dialogue. After coming up with the situation his dialogue just flows unlike any other character in Toxie’s 1:18th Universe. Many times when I am stumped in a place or part of the story I will ask “What would Hulk do?” and I get something hilarious coming to mind.
Of course I use the Toy Biz Superhero Showdown version of Hulk. This is a mild sticky point with some fans who ask why I don’t use the Hasbro Marvel Universe version. Basically while the sculpt is better on the Hasbro version, the articulation is much better on the Toy Biz version (especially with the hips which are a sticking point with me). I generally don’t get to be an articulation hog but Hulk’s hips have to move in my mind (if only for when he gets knocked down and has to get back up if nothing else). This is the main reason I hate the Hasbro version, there is no excuse for the lack of hip articulation on that figure. I did get the Red Hulk and Grey Hulk repaints but only because Toy Biz never got the opportunity to do them.
Also another major point is the SHS version has a better face sculpt for my purposes. His face looks dumb and almost child like on the Toy Biz version (Although it is a bit small for the figure) where as the Hasbro version(s) has a much gruffer and mean face which doesn’t lend itself to comedy well.
I admit I hate the sinewy quality of the Toy Biz figure, but for my purposes the benefits far outweigh the negatives of that fact. The new World War Hulk might just fit what I am wanting to accomplish though, time will tell.
