Cool! You found one! How does it measure next to regular MS Hulk?

Yeah, a group of my friends were heading to a mall out of town and I remembered a Disney store was there and just had to pick him up! It's so awesome! Oh, he's 100% as good as MS Hulk, and IMO, better. I'll give a quick review. Articulation: It's not too great on the figure, and pretty limited, but it's the same articulation as regular hulk. Sculpt: Incredible. This is one of the best sculpted figures I've seen and it's insane. Although his arm veins are pretty excessive, it doesn't detract too much from this figure. Don't get me wrong, regular Hulk is greatly sculpted, but I think Unleashed is better. Paint: Unbelievably spectacular. A great example of how paint on a great sculpt makes a fantastic looking figure look even more fantastic. Compared to regular Hulk, Unleashed takes the win. Features: Regular takes the win. There's no base on this guy which kinda stinks, but I more so really wish he had interchangeable heads. The look he has is very well done and comic-scene accurate (which is what this figure is trying to achieve and definitely does so) but when you pose him in other poses, the "displeased" Kratos-like look he has just doesn't look right. I wish he at least came with a head with clenched teeth and maybe one with a yelling face (think FO Hulk and his variant). Overall, remarkable figure. To me, it's better than the regular Hulk, but that's just my opinion. If he just came with at least 1 interchangeable head, and had better articulation, I'd say this figure would be, without question, the definitive Hulk figure, or at least tied with Face Off Hulk.

Here's a few of the bits i've picked up recently, i really enjoy the CnC figures and i'm thinking a new addiction that I just can't afford might be forming :shock:

It's that way with these Shadowrun figures. Blasted things were on blowout years ago when KB was shutting down and i passed them by and now i'm paying 20-50.00 each. Thankfully there is only 2 series.

Went to my local comic convention, C2E2. They didn't have as many good figures as usual or they were just too highly priced, but I found a few gems. Picked up ROML X Force Wolverine and X Force Deadpool. Also found an Avengers ML Thor. And finally, the best find, I picked up the Play Arts Kai Arkham Asylum No. 1 Batman. Got him for market price and couldn't be happier. Pretty decent haul if you ask me.

Cons are getting way more expensive. I used to go to pittsburgh every year in the mid 90s and you'd find stuff pretty cheap, especially import stuff, and now you go to a con you see stuff for more than on ebay or amazon.

3 William Gibson novels, a part for a gameboy color, 10 foam inserts for NES boxes, and a shadowrun art book.

oh, don't I know it. going there was only $30, so that wasn't too bad, but everything there was outrageously priced minus a few things. they had the Play Arts Halo 4 Warrior, a huge want for me, but the guy wanted $80 for the dang thing. wosh I could find another there, but no. I was hoping to find a Figma or two as well, but nothing. this year was a pretty dissappointing one, but I am still happy I found Batman. Got him for $60 when he's around $100 on ebay. that was a great find, but other than that, it was just okay. the other 2 years I went, it was loaded with stuff for great prices, but I didn't have the cash. This year was the opposite. I'm just hoping next year will be better.

Snagged 2 copies of Avengers [Blu-Ray + DVD Combo] and a DVD copy of How To Train Your Dragon, all for $10! If anyone's interested, the second copy of Avengers is on my trade thread for sale/trade.

A toyfare exclusive shadowrun figure, more than i'd have liked but it was the only one on ebay. Just got 2 shadowrun figures for 17.00 when the one alone is 50.00 most places.

I want to say that's from Persona 3, but I might be wrong though. Nice find none the less.

I gained these two with my last paycheck, and I'm still supprised they made one of them. Master Vile (circa '95) and Rita. Apperantly Bandai made a Rita action figure during the Power Rangers Samurai line and I didn't know until now. This just makes me want to try and get Rito to round it out since I already have Zedd and Goldar.
