    LEGO 5000022 The Hulk Minifigure Review

    Name: 5000022 The Hulk
    Pieces: 4
    Theme: Superheroes
    MSRP: $5.99 value (not for individual sale)

    When I saw pictures of this minifigure earlier last month, I knew I had to pick it up! This Hulk minifigure is not sold in any other set making this quite an exclusive. In the regular sets, they do have Hulk in a "big wampa like" form in the 6868 Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout set. But in terms of minifigure form, this is the only item that contains the Hulk in minifigure form. Let's see if its really as cool as it seems in this review!

    LEGO's Description
    Build the green muscle machine in LEGO® minifigure style!

    Build Bruce Banner’s angry alter ego, The Hulk™, as a muscle-clad minifigure! Once just an average guy, Bruce Banner’s secret identity as The Hulk was born when a gamma bomb explosion transformed him into a giant green hero who gets stronger as he gets angrier. Add this LEGO® brick-based comic book star to your LEGO Super Hero collection and battle any villain!

    •Build a LEGO® brick-based version of the classic comic super hero – The Hulk™!
    •Battle, play and collect with the first ever Hulk minifigure!
    •Add this exclusive minifigure to your LEGO Super Heroes collection!

    The front of the polybag. Hulk in a city background that looks like its been under seige. I haven't seen the Avengers Movie yet so I'm not quite sure what's going on. :)

    Image
    Dumping out the contents, we get 4 pieces as shown on the bag. No accessories or any extra pieces.

    Image
    The built minifigure. Very cool and cute looking (especially when Hulk is in miniature form)!

    Image
    Though, one thing that bugs me is that Hulk is not wearing anything on the side or the back. Somehow, he only managed to get his pants printed on the front. LEGO probably forgot about the rest. :(

    Final Verdicts

    Aside from the legs printing part, this is a very cool minifigure to have. LEGO claims that this minifigure has a $5.99 value. Though, they don't sell it separately and its also their exclusive. Instead, LEGO is currently offering this minifigure for free when you make a $50 purchase at LEGO Brand Stores and LEGO Shop at Home (USA | Canada | UK). The promotion runs until May 31st, 2012 or while supplies last so if you want this exclusive minifigure, you should make your purchase now.

    Thx for the review. I was about asking what was the print on the leg looking like.

    Yeah I was worried about the pants printing since they first previewed this. I was afraid he'd end up with a loin cloth thong and he did. I know they are capable of at least printing on the side of the legs. The Minifigure series mummy proved that. Not sure on the back of the legs though. But that would have looked better than what they did IMO. I don't get mine until sometime next week so maybe it won't be as bad in person.

    I have a Hulk as well. I don't know if there are variations running around out there but Ice's looks like it has blue pants. Mine however is standard purple and I believe is the case for most.

    ALSO, the face has dual printing which I missed on first inspection.

    The pants made it average for me. If sides were purple, I'd rate it excellent. Since it's the only minifig version out there, it was still a must get for me. I will explore WaterSlide decals or paint to fix it. It's really annoys me when I see it from the side. I'd be very annoyed with LEGO if they had a later version with the pants on the side.

    i.e. In this photo I took, the loin cloth is very distracting IMO.

    i got the polybag, but im not even sure im going to open it now. those non printed pants look miserable.

    lego should have given the hulk purple legs, and then printed green legs on the front. now he looks like he was in the hospital and he is running around in that smock with your bottom sticking out!

    I just can't get excited about this fig. It's just too small and therefore is simply not the hulk. It's even more apparent when they _just_ came out with a "scale" hulk in 6868 which looks pretty good. This figure is like some minifigure decided to dress up as the Hulk for Halloween.

    Genius would have been to instead have a Dr. Bruce Banner minifigure post-hulk-out, with a harried look of recovery and torn shorts (printed all around, of course). I would buy (or earn) that without ANY hesitation whatsoever.

    I wish they had made an entire new muscle design for a torso. It's the Dastan torso from POP. Really, don't they think The Hulk is stronger than Jake Gyllenhaal? I think they needed a more ripped, muscular torso. This one just doesn't cut it.
    And yes, the leg printing is lame. They could of at least added it on the sides. But hey, it's Chinese plastic. :P

    Thanks for the review. I haven't seen the behind pics before. I guess it is like he is wearing a thong from the back. :eek: That won't stop me from adding him to my collection.

    That IS genius! A Bruce Banner minifig would've probably have been more valuable, and might have increased the value of the Hulk fig from 6868 as well. While this exclusive minifig is simply just a novelty, a Bruce Banner minifig would've had playability.

    That must have been my camera. He does have purple pants, not blue. :lol:

    I missed that too! He does have two faces with the other side showing a grin.

    It's more of a 'slightly less angry' face than a grin...

    Good review. I got mine today and I'm not that this green thong thing didn't get in my head but ugh it's really bad on this fig.
