TOY RULK : New Compound Hulk Action Figure!

Marvel and Hasbro has just announced a new addition to their popular MARVEL UNIVERSE toy line… an exclusive Compound Hulk figure!   Anyone who doesn’t recall the Compound Hulk can refresh their memory by revisiting my review of his appearance in HULK Issue # 30 by clicking here :   http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/redhulk/rulk-review-hulk-issue-30/87-70197/

Here are the details:

MARVEL UNIVERSE SPECIAL EDITION COMPOUND HULK FIGURE What’s more powerful than Hulk and Red Hulk? The two Hulks combined into Compound Hulk! This 3 3/4″ Marvel Universe figure recreates a memorable moment from this year’s HULK #30, when the two hulking enemies were combined into one red-and-green behemoth! The figure is based on the artwork of superstar artist Ed McGuinness, and his artwork adorns the special edition blister card and outer packaging of this one-of-a-kind figure!

RULK REVIEW : HULK Issue # 30

HULK Issue # 30”Can’t think… head’s all full of nerd…”  

– Rulk 
 
That is just one of many great lines that can be found in the thoroughly enjoyable 30th issue of HULK ”Marvel Two in One”, where Thaddeus Ross and Bruce Banner are forced to confront their worst nightmare:  work together in the most intimate of ways. Both Hulks are literally ”smashed” together in order to fight an intergalactic titan that has a personal vendetta against the Green Hulk whom he lost to in battle before. Needless to say it’s a little perplexing to the titan when a Red Hulk is found, but no matter.  This time the odds are stacked against both Hulks, who must work together to defeat this common enemy in every sense of the word… with a little merging assistance from the always humorous Impossible Man as he broadcasts the brawl to an intergalactic audience.

The Compound Hulk could have easily been a one-trick-pony, a clever eye-catching cover with an idea that all too wears out its welcome before you reach the end of the book.  But thanks to the story and witty dialogue of Jeff Parker, and the deep-rooted history of loathing Ross and Banner have for each other, their smallest attempts at working together like the simple feat of walking is very entertaining.  Add the stellar return of the much missed Ed ‘Born to draw Rulk’ McGuinness as lead artist and his fantastic cover, and this issue aims to please.  Pure fun.

Hopefully one day we’ll see the return of Compound Hulk for an extended period of time, in a less comical way.  There would be a very compelling and serious story to tell as both Banner and Ross are forced to share thoughts, feelings, dreams and nightmares… and battles… finally having a chance to really understand where each one is coming from.  If done right, the potential for a great storyline is enormous.
