I believe in the special features, it was stated that he was 9ft tall. I don't believe the scale would be a problem since their Aliens Figure are scaled to 8ft or 9ft themselves. Only question is what format body would they use? This was talked about in another thread, but if they go with this figure, most likely they would have to use a Herisute Body, like Wolverine and Comedian, but just modified for HULK. I really do not believe the price would sky rocket. I say $200 bucks since it would be just 1 figure and no accessories.

I would say you're very and wrong. Movie Hulk was set at 9ft, and if 12" is equal to 6ft (average TT-based figure), and 14" to 8ft (Predators w/exception of P1), then it's not out of the question. Marginally adding to the feet and neck can easily get HotToys where they need to be at 15" for the correct height. Since he'd lack accessories but be enormous, I'd put him at about $189.

No way. He would have to at least be as tall as the AVP Predators, and 2-3 times as wide as they are. Add in a fancy muscle body, the R&D costs required to engineer such a thing, and the extra packaging required, and I can easily see this costing $250+ based on the current HT base cost.

I'm going on MSRP that Sideshow would probably offer it for.

Yeah, if you reread, I upped it to $190. But you gotta remember, he doesn't have ANY accessories and doesn't even have things like a belt, socks or shoes. What little clothing he has (likely only pants) would be more like nickers. So with that, I wouldn't put it over the $200 mark.

First things first. The Movie Hulk was 10 feet tall not only does it say in many reference interviews but in the deleted scenes Blonsky in a debriefing says specifically 10 feet tall and that part was used in many commercials.

Second, they can its whether or not they will. If you look at Hellboy its a modified Truetype with a skeleton underneath the rubber body, that is the basic make up of The Hulk just bigger which would primarily be easier because there is less of a chance of breakage. The figure it self would need to be around 20" tall which isn't too much bigger than the 12" figures we are getting now and their Na'vi from Avatar would need to be the same height to be true to form so I guarantee you the work has begun on how to make a specialized Truetype would could easily translate using the rubber suit itself as a way to add definition and mass, which would make it more cost effective since they are doing at least three Na'vi minimum and if they wanted to make them true to scale they'd just move the tech over.

This isn't like the Tumbler or doing an Iron Monger where the pieces are specific its just changing over tech existing. They had no real reason to do it for Hulk since you could make one maybe two Hulks out of it. With Avatar coming and the chance to do at minimum a Jake, then a Neytiri even a Tsu'tey and hit the mains without doing Grace or Norm or even a variation of Jake, the tech will be there just need to be moved over and revamped into a more green positioning.

I'm guessing this is one of those times, where not unlike the History Channel, you go undisputed for the amount of info you know about Marvel. You even made me question where I heard it from so I went back and watched it just to make sure I wasn't crazy. In the documentary "Becoming the Hulk" on the BluRay, they state and I quote, "The Hulk averages between 9 and 10ft tall. So we firmly established the Hulk's height at 9ft tall." So whatever you're pulling from as your source, I'm gonna stick with the production team of the film, more specifically the design team, who set the height at 9ft. Remember, we're talking the Hulk from The Incredible Hulk movie, not the comic version, and not the 15ft tall one from the original film.

Yep. If HT makes a Hulk, they better damn well make it like Hellboy. Otherwise don't bother.

i see them doing this figure.
but they will not use the rubber body flesh like on rocky or other figures. i think he will be a thicker plastic..so he can be durable..because it would be a fatal flaw to use the rubber skin.. to many would get destroyed and it would be costly..but when it comes to making figures there light years ahead of the competition..

I'm slightly offended to being referred to as a History Channel parallel as if I pull any number out of my ass because I'm trusted at some Marvel knowledge it'd be accepted without fail.

My references are internet interviews I read and posted on this site in the past as well as interviews with the director and cast again that I linked here but am too lazy to fetch. As well as this TV spot where at 00:32 you hear Blonsky clearly say 10 feet tall.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sdWSXD6odCk&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sdWSXD6odCk&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

In case the embedd fails http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdWSXD6odCk

Ultimately though I'm not going to knitpick over a foot, if in the Blu-Ray they say 9 feet then fine, I'm just pointing out that what was actually filmed and put out as film canon was 10 feet despite what was said behind the scene. Really in the difference of 9 feet to 10 feet we are talking about non noticable differences in a 1:6 format but whatever.

I took the "first things first" as calling me dumb as the overall tone of it was condescending, so whatever. Didn't mean it to offend ya bud, just saying, I'll believe production/design team stats in a film documentary about the character over a "soldier's guesstimate" movie dialogue any day of the week. :lol

I think he looked more like a video game character than a "realistic" CG Hulk. For some reason I just couldn't buy it in the Norton film.

I judge his height by this, Blonsky was a short guy, especially standing with Ross. Ten feet might be the dialogue, but standing with Betty and this shot with Blonsky, 8-9" seems a better size.

I agree with that, the actual design was real nice, but the execution, most of the time, on both Hulk and Abomination was less realistic looking than a lot of other CGI creatures today, I'd even say overall, the 2004 Hulk looks more really there than the 2008.

Yeah, that Hulk was great. But Norton's wasn't bad at all. It just feels like this one captures the Hulk better.

Plus in Ang Lee's movie, you really felt as though the Hulk was a real being. It really shows that they put in more than 1 million man hours into crafting and lighting him.

One of the things I loved about Lee's movie was when the dog bit his trap or when they were shooting him in the bunker, they use the whole "angrier Hulk gets, the stronger he gets" and had him increase in size. Given that the gamma that Bruce is infected with is supposed to be limitless in power, Hulk should be limitless in strength as well. He just seemed like a puss in the Norton movie, I dunno, like Emo Hulk.

I loved the Norton film, but sometimes I hear people talk and get a vibe like the movie and the Hulk's design weren't overly popular, and the 2004 was even less popular from the reactions I've caught and even Marvel opted to reboot things. I just fear Hot Toys won't think movie Hulk a worthwhile figure to make, which sucks, I want a 2008 Hulk and Norton Banner figure, just like they are on the theatrical poster.

That would actually be an easy figure to do too. The Dutch body is more suited to Ferrigno anyway (too tall for Arnie), so all they'd need to do is produce it in Green, sculpt hands, legs, feet and a Ferrigno head, throw on some ripped pants and they'd be set.

There was a sculptor doing a statue with full 3D figures of both like the poster so that if you turned it right it looked just like it or you could spin it and see them both from any angle, unfortunately it probably would have been very costly even if it was every completed and sold.
