I think they are made to this scale for the kiddies, massed produced for the quick sell for the duration of the movie. As long as the ML scale ones are safe, I'm happy.

Hate to break it to you Mythy, but the Hulk figures are NOT in the same 5" scale as last year's Spidey 3 figures.

The Hulk line is in fact 3 3/4 scale.

Because Hasbro is in the process of changing ALL Marvel lines into that scale.

Yes, even Marvel Legends... or should I say, "MARVEL UNIVERSE."

Marvel Legends (as we know it) wont be stopping (though it may continue to slow, as we've seen this year).

But it seems The Incredible Hulk line is just the start of their shifting the Marvel licence to 3 3/4" as the primary scale.

"Marvel Universe" will be getting more attention than ML once it launches, and if these figures (and TIH's) do well, I think we can expect to see future Marvel movie lines in 3 3/4" scale, with one or two key figures released as "Legends" as special figures (ala TIH).

Well that's not good news, especially about the main figs getting released in the smaller scale.
I do like my older smaller figures but not enough that i want to see the line go back that way.
On a side note i saw what i can only descrobe as a re-release of the spidey 3 ML wave, it was on a blue/gold card same figs just different packaging in uncle pete's Warringah mall.
Bob what do you know of this?

Sounds like the Spider-Man: Heroes and Villains line.

It's a repaint series.

Incidentally, Series 2 contains 2 ToyBiz comic line repaints (Ultimate Rhino & Shocker).

Yeah, I'd be all for Unleashed 360 versions of Hulk and Abom from the new film. Smile

I'm not sure that the 6 inchers are going...the return of Jesse Falcon to the line could be a great thing. Wait till NYCC for some news I reckon.

The 6" figures wont be GOING, but the focus will eventually be on the 3 3/4" lines, with 6" being for Con exclusives, and "collectors" only.

Boo,
why do they keep mucking around with the sizes?
Dont they know their market at all?
Unless there is more money in selling to kids than collectors?
