Hasbro revealed a ton of new Marvel toys at Toy Fair this year — covering everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to comic book favourites. The thing I might be most excited by however is this A-Force six pack, but with both Monica Rambeau and Elsa Bloodstone, it might as well be the Nextwave figure set of my dreams.
Ever since the Hulk officially joined Thor: Ragnarok, desperate fans have hoped that the film will in some way be adapting the Planet Hulk storyline. This year's San Diego Comic-Con seems to have granted them their wish, by providing a first look at the Hulk's armour in the movie.
The saga of whether or not Mark Ruffalo would be joining almost the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War has been long and tumultuous. First, Robert Downey Jr. apparently asked Ruffalo to be in on the fun. Then it was happening. Then it wasn't — and yet rumours persisted. Turns out there was some truth to them though.
There have been rumours that Marvel Studios has been going to turn Greg Pak's hit comic saga Planet Hulk into a movie for years. It's also been tied to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, and now Thor: Ragnorak, too. But why are people obsessed with Planet Hulk getting a movie, when there are other, more appropriate Hulk stories available?
As Marvel's most wantonly destructive character, there's only one feature kids are really looking for when they ask their parents for a Hulk toy. It has to smash stuff, and it has to smash stuff repeatedly until they get tired of smashing stuff. It's a simple list of demands, and JAKKS Pacific has met every one of them with its new, and aptly-named, RC Hulk Smash.
With the Avengers sequel creeping closer and closer to its release date, it was only a matter of time before the talented artists at Hot Toys finally gave us a Hulk figure to top all other Hulk figures. With this new 17-inch tall version of an angry Bruce Banner they have certainly delivered, and with more detailed chest hair than we've ever seen on an action figure before.
If you've never seen or heard of the Selk'bag wearable sleeping bags before, you're getting up to speed at the perfect time. You can think of them as a one-piece pajama for adults except with the same amount of insulation you'd find in a sleeping bag, so they will keep you extra warm at night. And now they're available in four Marvel-themed versions letting you seed some truly memorable dreams.
