Hulk XM, at least for me, is the best Hulk piece ever made. Since I saw it on video, my first time, I started surfing the net in search of any other Hulk, licensed or custom, that could compete with this monster created by XM.

At the end of my vast research (which lasts until today), going through the latest model from Iron Studios, respecting the SS original, I selected the custom based on Mike Deodato's art as the second most impressive that my eyes have ever seen. He has absurdly defined muscles (some nonexistent); he has more exposed veins than a thousand-year-old tree, and his musculature is so exaggerated that it has reached the peak of deformation. He's as giant, bestial, intimidating and scary as the Hulk should be. However, this Hulk is wonderful from two or four angles; when viewed in profile or from above, it is unable to maintain the same standard of excellence as frontal displays. But, of course, not because of the sculptor's demerit, he's just being faithful to Mike's art.

Hulk XM is perfect from any angle of exposure; front, profile, seen from above, from below; each new angle is a new discovery, and Dr. Robert Bruce Banner is a luxury bonus. Whoever disagrees, just remove it.

But I will not do that.

That scene is historic, and has now been immortalized in one of the most spectacular pieces ever made for the world of collecting.

You just know this is good by looking at it . I’m trying to wrap my head around how big it is . I haven’t seen pictures of it side by side with another 1/4 figure or a real person . I’m very curious on how it will look beside my XM Hulkbuster as that’s how I’m displaying these exclusives.

It looks like something that others want to have after they see it. Or they are thankful for seeing it. And you can be proud to have it. I think thats what makes a real collectible.

I sort of wish there were some precise measurements somewhere. I don't think I've seen any (especially just the Hulk and just the Banner as standalone pieces). I don't think I have the room (which is why I haven't ordered it) but maybe if I saw some measurements I could check to verify my assumption.

I still need a 1/4 Hulk. I have the other 5 original movie Avengers in 1/4 scale.

My same sentiments. I need the precise measurements as well. Probably more worried about the shipping fees on this one though.

It’s odd they don’t give us those . They must know that by now . Shipping will be 4-600.00 easy

Thanks! Now it would be good to get the depth with no Banner. I have a shelf that is around 17 inches in depth but my guess is that Hulk alone is still too big. 59cm = 23.3 inches so if Banner's width is around 7 inches, it may work (and I MAY be interested in ordering).
