No Banner, only HULK. I am a big Hulk guy, so whenever MCU Hulkeses drop I try to pick them up. I’ve been eyeing Mezco’s One:12 Hulk since they first revealed it back in July of 2017. It was a way to get an upper tier version of the big guy on the shelf that at the time, hadn’t been done properly before. Fast forward a year and a half, things have changed out in the 1/12 scale universe. But, I kept my pre-orders in because it is still a sharp piece and I wanted to see how Mezco handled things. He comes packed with a helmeted and un-helmeted head sculpt, axe, hammer, 3 sets of hands and a display base with the Ragnarok logo on it. Soft goods are minimal, with sculpted forearm, hand and sandal parts mixed with faux leather and rubber fight gear on the chest arms and legs. We’ve run him through the motions, read on to check out some additional thoughts and over 50 HD images after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
Good base sculpt
Minimal soft goods
Can hold weapons well
Yell face well done
Colors are too saturated
Blue in particular is off/saturated
Articulation range is limited
Face / body green does not match
Overall Thoughts: If you are looking for a figure to put in a pretty vanilla pose on the shelf, this will do it for you. It’s got a great sculpt and feels good in hand. If you are looking for a dynamic pose, one to really make that yell face pop, there are other options out there. On top of that, the colors are a tad saturated, both the body green and the blue gear pieces. That really got me more than the articulation range issues. I don’t like comparing figures from different companies and declaring a winner, each one always has their pros and cons, and will work for different collectors depending on what lines and how they collect. That being said, the SHF version of this guy is very close in scale and style, with better colors (IMO) and articulation. If you are not line specific, and just want 1 version of this guy at a level above standard Marvel Legends, then take a look at the Figuarts one. If you are One:12 first, or are not concerned with articulation, or dig these brighter colors, then this Mezco joint will work.
