Gray Hulk completes Sideshow’s new Hulk trio
Joining the Incredible Hulk and Red Hulk, Sideshow is proud to introduce the Gray Hulk from our Marvel Comics Hulk Premium Format™ Figure series.
A fantastic tribute to the original character design by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Sideshow’s artists have captured the full menace of Hulk’s gamma-fueled fury as he was first depicted in Incredible Hulk #1.
Inspired by classic monsters like Frankenstein and Jekyll and Hyde, Stan Lee originally intended Hulk to have a gray skin tone, thinking a melodramatic, somber color would be perfect for the mood he wanted to establish.
However, when copies of the first issue showed that the printers were unable to maintain a consistent shade of gray from one page to the next, he decided to make the change to Hulk’s coloring to the more familiar green in subsequent stories.
Featuring the hallmarks of his classic look, Bruce Banner’s alter ego is all muscle in his shredded denim shorts, with a prominent brow and monstrously intimidating scowl. Rampaging onto the scene in one quarter scale, Hulk tears up the terrain with one hand outstretched to taunt his enemies, and the other ready to deliver a mighty blow.
The Sideshow Exclusive version will include additional costuming, featuring Hulk’s retro orange shirt (shown below).
A time-honored champion of the Marvel Universe, the Gray Hulk Premium Format™ Figure is a must have for fans of the Hulk!
