Here we have a pack containing Grey Hulk and Rhino.
The packaging is the now-usual Marvel Minimates box as seen in the last few waves. It features the Marvel Universe logo and also has the faces on the side of the box. I really like the dynamic pose of the 2 figures in this set, it really shows them off well.
When he first appeared in the comics, the Hulk was grey and was only later changed to green.
This figure is mostly very similar to the original green Hulk Minimate, certainly the feet, upper body, arms and crotch piece are all identical. This grey Hulk has a different, meaner, expression with gritted teeth. The most obvious addition is the hairpiece, which is really a forehead/hairpiece as it makes the head look a lot bigger and more Frankenstein like.
The detailing on the upper body is identical to that of the green Hulk, and it looks just as good on this one, maybe even better as it’s picked out in a darker colour.. Interestingly, the rips on the ends of the trousers are different to the green Hulk, which struck me as odd.
Grey Hulk comes with no accessories, although the hairpiece is removable.
Overall, I like this Hulk more than the original, as the colours work better and the hairpiece makes him look a bit taller.
MMC Score – 7 out of 10
The Rhino is an enemy of both Spider-Man and the Hulk, making him a great choice for a Marvel Minimate. He has an angry yet slightly goofy expression on his face, which is drawn around the low brow of the Rhino mask, giving a great look.
The Rhino’s costume is mainly a uniform grey colour, with some texturing “swirls” painted on, but sometimes on a Minimate, the simple approach really works, and it definitely does here. He also has muscular detailing on his upper body picked out in black, in a very similar way to the Hulk.
The main accessory for Rhino is his horned helmet, and it looks amazing. The size of the horn does make Rhino look very intimidating, he’s easily the tallest Minimate yet. Even though he’s too skinny compared to the other figures, his height advantage really works in play. The helmet is also removable, another nice touch.
Overall, this figure is superb. Rhino is one of my favourite Minimates, he looks imposing and fearsome just as he should.
