Marvel Legends - SHE-HULK!

Marvel Legends - Jennifer Walters She-Hulk - Fan Channel Exc - Hasbro 2021

Lately I've been reading the original Savage She-Hulk series from 1980 (I picked up the two Marvel Masterworks collections) and my appreciation for her has been growing exponentially. I also picked up two collections of her later John Byrne run which I'll be diving into next. Most of her modern comics feature a Jennifer Walters that is in control of her powers and never really "hulks out." But those early comics (and the recent 2017 Hulk series) had her uncontrolled transformations as a focal point of the stories - and I like those unpredictable character dynamics. That's why I love this new She-Hulk figure. She is a repainted 2020 gray Hulk figure, which is a monstrous hulked out version of Jennifer (a physique that we'd be very unlikely to see a green version of in toy form). All the previous green She-Hulk toys have looks too happy and scrawny for my tastes. So although this one isn't particularly comic-accurate, it's my favorite. And the alternate calm face is an amazing added bonus. Let's check her out below!
























She-Hulk comes with two heads and two sets of hands.


































Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here is Jennifer with her gray version from her solo Hulk series.

Cheers!

  1. Awesome pictures...now you are tempting me to get this version. I have the grey one already. Now all we need is Jennifer Walters in human form like the one you have in the picture.
