Series/Wave Series 4 Wave 19 #012
Marvel artist Mike Deodato Jr. returns to Wave 19 for more awesome packaging artwork. Figure is displayed nicely in the plastic shell. The back of the card has MODOK as Wave 19′s mascot and shows more of the available figures. Back of the card also has a small She-Hulk bio. Solid packaging as usual for you MOC collectors.
A brand new sculpt*? Yes! She-Hulk’s new sculpt is toned and muscular while still looking feminine. The closed fists are a nice touch, She-Hulk is ready to smash. I look forward to the body sculpt being used for larger characters like Titania, Valkyrie, Thundra, etc. Brand new head sculpt is simple but the attached hair looks great.
*This new sculpt was out first in a Toys”R”Us Exclusive 2 pack with Wolverine. Wave 19 should have been it’s first appearance but distribution problems led to a later release.
The purple on her outfit (one-piece bikini?) and gloves is a nice looking metallic purple. The rest of the outfit and her boots are paints in a glossy white. Instead of being painted, the majority of She-Hulk’s skin is cast in a green (slightly darker than her Toys”R”Us exclusive release). Hair is cast in green with black painted over, makes for nice highlighting. Overall it’s a great paint job and the only issue is one of her eyes wasn’t painted right. But that’s quality control and your figure might not have that problem.
She Hulk has a sensational 29 POA. Ball-jointed head, hips & torso. Swivel biceps, calves, thighs & wrists. Swivel/hinge shoulders. Hinged neck. Hinge/ball ankles. Double-hinged elbows & knees. Yep, she has double-hinged elbows! While She-Hulk may lack waist articulation, it’s not very noticeable and doesn’t keep the articulation from being great.
No accessories included with She-Hulk, just the “collectible comic shot” (piece of cardboard).
Comic Book Accuracy
The first female Hulk, Jennifer Walters is a gamma powered lawyer who can smash. This figure is 100% comic accurate for the majority of her modern appearances. The only differences are that she would sometime wear jeans or sneakers instead of boots. Different shades of purple have also been used for her uniform & gloves. This specific look with the long white boots was used during the World War Hulks storyline.
She-Hulk is a much-needed character with a brand new sculpt, a great paint job and plenty of articulation. This is a fantastic figure and probably one of Wave 19′s most underrated and unappreciated. If you’re a team builder, She-Hulk would fit in well with a lot of the modern Avengers rosters.
I hate waiting for things to hit retail in South Florida so I pre-ordered Wave 19 from ToyWiz. Their service is fantastic, everything arrived within a few days after it was released. If you feel like hunting, Wave 19 has been found in Walmart (if yours still carries MU).
