Marvel Select Immortal Hulk Figure Video Review And Images

When I first saw this figure I wondered why the figure looked like it was just an up-scaled mold of the Legends 80th anniversary Hulk without the butterfly joints. Shartimus explained that they were both sculpted by Gentle Giant studios. It makes sense but I always thought Hasbro sculpted their own molds.

Yeah I have heard othe reporting sculpting for hasbro before as well, like I am confused. Do they hire private sculptors and designers to do most/some of their product? Loke they always make it seem as if everything is done in house.

I would be really, really surprised if Gentle Giant, a studio owned by Diamond, sculpted the Legends figure. I'm pretty sure Hasbro does all their sculpting in-house, but I'm 100% sure they do enough of it in-house that they wouldn't outsource such a major character, and certainly not to a competitor. Shartimus is just wrong about that, unless he was merely speculating. I didn't watch the video.

Actually, Dwight Stahl confirmed quite a while ago that Gentle Giant has been doing all the sculpting for the Legends line since it's rebranding as the Infinite series. I think even a few of the mainstays like the Hyperion buck and the Bucky Cap buck were done during the Return of ML days. There is a distinct difference in what Hasbro was doing with their in-house artists versus GG, even within early waves like the Odin wave. Most of that wave was all new sculpts by GG with only the Immortal Iron Fist being an in-house retooled version of Toybiz's Bullseye mold. Some examples of bucks done completely by Hasbro would be pretty much anything in the FF/Ronan wave and like 90 percent of the Nemesis wave, minus the retooled Bullseye buck they used for Nova, which they are thankfully redoing sometime this year.
