hulk buster 7

Superhero movies mean big business for toy makers, and whenever Marvel releases a new movie, a slew of action figures are made to fulfill everyone’s toy needs. There are the cheap small figures that anyone of any age can play with, and there are also the larger, more expensive, but extremely poseable figures for those who want to seriously play. Then there are the really expensive versions that boast incredible detail and size. This Hulkbuster is one of those ones.

Many toy makers are producing their own version of the Hulkbuster from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Bandai is taking its time and attaching all the bells and whistles including LEDs and real metal parts.

S.H. Figuarts is Bandai’s elite line of action figures that are aimed at the adult fan since they’re positioned at a higher price point but include more accurate detailing. Starting May 29 at 4 p.m. JST they will begin taking orders, online only, for their version of the Hulkbuster from the new Avengers movie.

▼ Note: Hulk sold separately
