Sneak Peek: LEGO Debuts Marvel Avengers Hulk Statue at Toy Fair
Since he was first introduced to the world some fifty years ago, he’s been called a lot of things, but statuesque is probably not one of them. In honor of their new Marvel license and the 109th American International Toy Fair New York City, LEGO has assembled this slightly less than life-size sculpture of The Hulk, which is indeed Incredible. Based on the film version from Marvel’s The Avengers, Hulk will be greeting industry professionals at the Toy Fair when it kicks off tomorrow morning.
At Toy Fair last year, LEGO unveiled a full scale film-accurate replica of Lightning McQueen from Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2 as well as a Captain Jack Sparrow (unveiled at a private event) in honor of their new Pirates of the Caribbean line. Sculptures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear were the first of the Disney LEGO honorees, when LEGO first received the license. Since then, LEGO has gone to create spectacular Disney-themed statues for their stores at the Downtown Disney Districts at the Walt Disney World and (soon) Disneyland Resorts.
No additional information on just how hulking big this particular sculpture is, but hopefully we’ll get some more information soon. Until then, be sure to watch this space and follow us on Twitter as we spend the next couple of days combing through the some hundred thousand toys on display, starting with an early morning preview with LEGO.
Below are some additional photos of the Hulk sculpture. Click on any of the thumbnails to expand and the resize arrow to view it at the original (scaled-down) resolution. This same gallery will be used for all the LEGO photos we’ll be bringing to you from the Toy Fair. Hulk says enjoy. Don’t make him angry.
