I'm a huge fan of the Hulk when he was "merged" having the strength, intellect, and attitude. This one's based on art of Gary Frank from his run on the Hulk comic in the 1990's. Toy Biz had a figure of Smart Hulk already but I wanted to make my own bigger and taller one.
I just took a DC Mattel Brimstone and cut off the head. Then used the old Smart Hulk figure's head and neck combined with green putty, and painted around Brimstone's tanktop and boots. The tanktop is taken from 10inch Hellboy. The belt came from DC retro Black Manta.
I have a picture of Captain America and Doc Samson next to the Hulk for scale comparison. Also, I wanted to copy the cover image from Incredible Hulk #406.
Update: I showed this to Hulk artist Gary Frank at San Diego Comic Con in July 2013. He liked it!
