Lately, at least the POPs I have been catching, the poses are a bit more dynamic and unique. With this Hulkbuster, it's pretty obvious that Funko went with a more neutral position. And honestly, with all that detail, I'm not surprised nor am I disappointed.
As I mentioned on my last POP Iron Man, the hype is real for Infinity War and some of these POPs are awesome. I think I might just stick with the Iron Men for now though.
Anyone to everyone who has seen the Infinity War trailer surely must have caught the scenes involving the new Hulkbuster. There are a couple of theories floating around that it's Hulk underneath and I'm not denying that idea, but it has to be Iron Man. At any rate, the designs of the new Hulkbuster is nice; truly a more refined version of the AoU version. The POP definitely got all the aesthetics that it can right despite the limitation of its stylized figure form. There are a lot of details in this figure, lots of sculpted work, which is why the neutral pose is not marring how much I like this POP.
The colors on this guy just comes out so well. The red are vibrant and very metallic, paired up with the silver and gold, it's just a perfect mix. The neat thing about this color scheme is that it really does correspond with my other POP (I'll show here in a few pics).
But the unfortunate thing, when it comes to my POP, he has some paint defects on his rear area (unfortunately). It's not as noticeable, but it being there does puts some negative point on this figure.
The odd thing about this Hulkbuster is that the head is a bobble. But it's so small compared to its bigger frame that it doesn't do much. Neat function, but it doesn't do much for me nor does it do anything against the figure.
Here he is next to Alduin. One can definitely see the massiveness of Hulkbuster next to the POP World Eater! Nice seeing these two next to each other.
The new POP Hulkbuster is definitely worth getting for POP collectors. For any diehard Iron Man fans who are just waiting for the Infinity War movie, this is definitely a good merchandise to remind you that even the smallest thing will be awesome in the #MCU's biggest movie event. Other than that, not much to say!
Until Next Time!
