Barbarian Hulk to End 2012 for Marvel Select

Watch out for the Barbarian Hulk coming out December of this year. He was featured at SDCC 2012 together with the Marvel Select Storm and Venom.

As for this Barbarian Hulk, I probably would have thought of getting him only if I was a huge Hulk fan or someone who is really good at customizing action figures. I mean don’t get me wrong though; this Marvel Select figure looks very well sculpted and detailed as shown in this picture. The problem is… since when did Hulk got into this career? I can say I have some decent knowledge about the Hulk (both past and present) but I can’t remember when he started going Amazonian! Maybe in the near future, Marvel is going to create a story of him lost in the jungles of Savage Land, but I don’t know. If you’re very particular of the lore of the Incredible Hulk, then it’s not worth spending $28 bucks on an action figure that is considerably senseless.
You know who I think should be in this “spot?” Skaar! No doubt that Skaar is the only dude to rightfully claim this spot if we are talking about a superhero with a warrior-monster type persona. With a few customizations, you can turn the Green Goliath into a more accurate, comic-based action figure, and I don’t see why it’s not an option for Diamond Select to just create Skaar.

If this is not an option, then why not the Gladiator Hulk or… World War Hulk! It's gonna be great to have him do the stuff he did like in Planet Hulk or WW Hulk comic book.

I hate surprises. I am more of a “selectionist” type of a collector; I look into the quality and value of every toy rather than try completing a whole series or buying every new releases. I can’t wait for Storm to come out next month, and Venom and Rhino next year. I hope Diamond Select will do some remake of those that I find poorly articulated and lack the poseability.
