Hasbro reveals a new Gladiator Hulk figure based on his appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, complete with five accessories such as an alternate head and gladiator helmet. Like other Marvel Legends figures, this figure is a 6-inch scale, but it stands tall at 8.375 inches without the helmet. Hulk's helmet, however, adds a little length to it, making it 9.25 inches overall to reflect his size and stature.
As many fans of the MCU will recall, Hulk leaves the team at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. He isn't seen again until Thor finds him in the cosmic gladiatorial arena located on Sakaar, a trash planet with various wormholes (that explains how he got there) in Thor: Ragnarok. The events of this movie set Hulk up for his presence and role in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, but his time as Gladiator Hulk is welcomed by many fans. After all, that aspect of his character was loosely adapted from the Planet Hulk comic storyline.
The Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk figure is based on the Strongest Avengers' appearance in the film, with his decoration and design including the white body markings, the blue armor pieces, purple wraps, and so on. The accessories include two weapons, an alternate hand, an alternate face (calm vs. angry), and the aforementioned helmet. As usual, this allows fans to put Hulk in any number of poses, including those that show his overwhelming stature standing tall and proud or one in the midst of battle.
