Well, it's finally happened. Hot Toys has completely unveiled their 1/6th scale Hulk figure based on his appearance in this summer's "The Avengers" and he clocks in at a full 16.5" tall! We had hoped to see this behemoth during the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International, but Hot Toys kept Dr. Banner on lock down and under wraps, like a crack S.H.I.E.L.D. unit, until this morning. While we love the looks of the big guy, action figures, Hot Toys included, become more "toyish" when you can see their joints, so we lost some of our enthusiasm upon seeing the shoulders and wrists-- but, then we learned that Hulk has the freaky moving eyeballs like Hot Toys' Joker figure and all was forgiven! No suggested retail price has be given, so we're going to go with "more than we can afford" until an official announcement.
