Funny you should ask!

I opened my email expecting to find shipping information for my Han Solo in Carbonite "figure", but I surely didn't expect to find a shipping confirmation for my Hulkbuster! It is expected to arrive at my forwarding service's Niagara Falls facility by the end of the week. It is being delivered by Fedex (my Ghost Rider was through UPS) so I am hoping that there isn't a declared value on the Fedex shipping label...hehehehe.

I pre-ordered this in June 2016, so I was expecting to receive it sometime in the New Year.
I finally managed to insert all the batteries in with a few cuts and bruises. They ain't kidding when they say you need two people to assemble this thing.

Btw do you have an extra mk43 head just in case the hulkbuster head make any scratches on your bust? I have about 4 heads for that scenario. Lol

Batteries on that head didn't last long and it fell apart quick. Hopefully, it's good as new if I put in new batteries.

Come on, tinlun, more Hulkbuster pics on your instagram! :)

Are the legs really that limited in articulation? That's the only thing that bothers me, most photos I see of him has the legs looking very stiff and straight.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I'll have more coming soon. Hopefully with all the lights turned on. I barely play around with the legs. Figure is so heavy, there's no point to play around with the legs.

I have a hard time moving the shoulder swivel. I'll have to check the manual on that.

Wouldn't look right if I got the Gladiator Hulk from Thor Ragnarok. And I dunno how I'd deal with getting it thru second hand sources.

Agreed, you need the Avengers or AOU Hulk. I've bought tons of stuff off Kijiji, new and used, and it's been pretty good so far.

And no Hot Toys Hulk on kijiji as far as I've checked.
