The Hulk Smashes Through the Ages in His Own Marvel Minimates Box Set!
May 2013 - Fans love the Marvel Minimates "Through the Ages" box sets because they offer a chance to collect some of the coolest alternate looks for the character featured in each set. But in Diamond Select's next box set, Hulk Through the Ages, you can collect four of the Hulk's coolest alternate personalities!
From Las Vegas enforcer Joe Fixit to futuristic despot The Maestro, from the peace-seeking Barbarian Hulk to the rage-filled Composite Hulk, the four Minimates in this set represent the Hulk at his best and worst, and thanks to the Hulk's unique psychiatric problems, each could be called a different character, and not just a costume change. (Although the Maestro does come with an interchangeable cape and helmet, while Joe Fixit has a interchangeable shirt and hair.)
Check out packaged photos below, and pre-order the set today at your local comic shop!
