My biggest gripe with the Hulk is that he's undersized.  The face isn't terrible, but if a regular character is around 6 feet tall, the Hulk should be between 8 and 9 feet tall.  I don't see that kind of proportion represented in the figures.

Oh, and today I finally saw the Quinjet at a store.  That's kind of cool, but it seems a little undersized.  I always recalled the classic Quinjet that could carry something like a half dozen Avengers.  This has a cockpit for 1, and a cargo area that might fit 1 figure as well.

Yeah Nick, Hulk looks horrible.  I wonder if it's because Hasbro didn't get the final reference photo for him and they need to make the figure a year out?

I'm kind of wondering about the Iron Man chestplate, too.  There's an Iron Man concept figure with the triangular arc reactor chestpiece, and there's also a movie figure with the circular chest piece.  I suppose the movie might clarify some of this.

Also, I've seen some of the figures in person.  The Hulk from the basic figure line just looks silly.  He's way too small.  I'm wondering if there will be other Hulks in this line.

Price wise, the lowest prices I've seen are $8.96 per figure at WalMart.

Hawkeye is way too ripped but I definitely plan on collecting some of these. 
I am wondering why Iron Man went back to the circle chest plate piece, no more triangle.  What happened there?

The Avengers - The Toy Line

The Avengers toy line has started showing up in stores recently.  It seems that the basic figure line is broken up into three subcollections:
-Comic Figures
-Concept Figures
-Movie Figures

This is pretty much in line with what we've seen in both the Captain America and Iron Man II figure lines.  And here are some shots that I took at NY Comic Con.

HAWKEYE


THOR


IRON MAN


CAPTAIN AMERICA


BLACK WIDOW


LOKI



So who is planning on collecting this line?
