Today we are looking at the final two figures in the Hulkbuster Wave. Blizzard, and the big guy himself, Hulkbuster.
Blizzard is a character that is a bit below my radar. And rightfully so. He seems to be 3rd tier at best, but at least a part of Iron Man’s rogue gallery.
He is simply constructed. He has a special head, but the rest is done with paint. This is a great body that they use. It is very strong and has great muscle texture all over.
He has a menacing looking face, with angry eyebrows and no mouth. It would have been nice to get some sort of power burst with him to get something at least. It looks like he is standing around getting angry for the most part.
Hulkbuster is huge! I expected him to be heavy as I was buying the team and could feel heft, especially in the legs. He comes with two legs, two arms, a torso, a front and back piece for the chest, and a tiny little head.
He goes together easily for the most part. The head popped right on. The arms easily went onto the their holes. There was a bit of a need for some extra strength to get the legs onto their posts, but I managed. There is a post that sticks up out of the lower torso and attaches into the upper torso. Mine is stuck and does not swivel to the sides. I can get side to side movement, but no twist. So, as for now, my Hulkbuster is slightly off center.
Overall this is a great wave of figures. They give a good look across the board, and they have a fantastic build-a-figure on Hulkbuster. It will be a while before they live this one down. It is like the Sentinel back in the day. All other BAF figures were held to that standard, and it took a long time for some people to get over that one. Now we have the new standard, and the bar is set high!
