As we learned in Avengers: Endgame, Bruce Banner’s giant green alter ego is more about the brains than the brawn these days. While we love his new look — particularly those glasses — it’s nice to recall a pre-Professor Hulk time when he was more about the smashing than the conversing. Hulk’s angry early years are perfectly preserved in a new six-inch scale figure—it measures in at 8.5”—that the big brains at Hasbro designed exclusively for attendees at San Diego Comic-Con.

It’s worth noting that Mark Ruffalo isn’t the model for this particular Hulk. Instead, Hasbro took their inspiration from the character’s comic book history, which explains the classic purple pants look. The figure boasts multiple points of articulation as well as a handy crushed pipe, which he can use to crush enemies, cars or whatever other puny things happen to be bothering him.

SDCC attendees can pick up this exclusive Hulk figure for $34.99 at the Hasbro Pulse booth on the convention floor. (That’s Booth 3329, true believers.) And while San Diego gets first dibs, Hasbro will be making limited quantities available at other domestic and overseas conventions, as well as online at HasbroPulse.com. All in all, it’s a smash-ing good deal.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2019 runs July 18-21.
