Marvel Legends RED SHE-HULK!

Marvel Legends: Hit Monkey Series - Hulkettes - Hasbro 2013

This figure is amazing.  Prepare for a softball review because I have no issues with this fine red lady whatsoever.  I honestly can't remember the last time I had no complaints or criticisms about a Hasbro figure.  The sculpt is amazing, the articulation is great, the paint is flawless (and I ordered several to make sure I got a good one - all perfect), and she is just all around a very very cool toy.  For those not familiar with the Red She-Hulk, her human form is Betty Ross-Banner who underwent the same process that created Red Hulk in some bring-her-back-from-the-dead scenario.  I was unimpressed with her appearance and character when she first appeared, but when I saw her in the Fear Itself storyline a couple years later, her look had changed into what we see now and her character had become very interesting to me.  After starring in the The Defenders (2012) she has now become the titular character in Hulk (Re-named Red She-Hulk as of issue #58).  The stories are really fun, the art is beautiful, and I'm always a sucker for a good female anti-hero.  Let's check her out below!

Her character slot in the Hit Monkey series is called "Hulkettes" because she shares the slot with the Savage She-Hulk, Lyra (who has yet to be spotted on the shelves)
I was actually so distracted by her awesomeness when I removed her from the packaging that I somehow failed to take my standard first "head-on" photo.  She's facing forward in all the comparison shots at the end of this review though.

She comes with her Big-Ass Sword (That I think she started carrying in The Defenders.. not sure of its origin.  Looks kind of like the Asgardian-type weapons in the Fear Itself storyline) and of course the body and legs of Hit Monkey.

Alrighty, Time for some comparison shots!
Here she is with The Fin-Fang-Foom Series Savage She-Hulk and Blob Series Jennifer Walters She-Hulk.  I thought she'd have a ton of shared parts but that doesn't seem to be the case at all.
And here I'll add the MU She-Hulk and the Superhero Squad Red She-Hulk.
And finally, here she is with last years Marvel Legends Hope Summers figure.  You can see that Betty is appropriately gigantic.
