Marvel Select Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk

I wasn't keen on getting this initially but seeing in hand pics made me decide to pull the trigger.

Hulk is based on his appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The figure is pretty much the same as the one from the first Avengers movie with new pants. His skin tone is lighter and it has shading all over his body. The head sculpt is the same. I was hoping he would have a new one with a different expression. His lips were painted a dull reddish grey here. Unlike the previous figure, this one has light grey shading in his hair. Nice! Speaking of hair, he's got some painted on his chest and forearms. It's quite noticeable. His nipples were also painted. That's probably the first time I mentioned something like that in a review. His nails are unpainted but they do have some shading to them. He's wearing what I like to call his training pants. It's got nice detail on it. The bands at his waist and calves were sculpted, as are the vertical red strips running down the front of his legs. It also has creases in it. The rest are painted detail. The paint apps are not great in this area as the lines are misaligned in several places. His pants has some light grey dry brushing on them which gives them a very nice appearance. Love it! 

A closer look at his chest. I'm liking the hair on his body. Looks like Wolverine has some competition in that department. Lol.

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, wrist hinge, torso pivot, peg hinge hips, thigh swivel, knee hinge and ankle hinge and pivot. He can hardly bend forwards. They improved the hip hinge. It is easier to have him spread his legs and not fear the joint coming off.

Comparison shots.

Nice figure. I'm liking it more than the one from the Avengers for the lighter colour scheme and more paint apps. Thanks for viewing!
