Thor: Ragnarok toys bring the thunder from Down Under
Director Taika Waititi may have shot parts of Thor: Ragnarok in Australia with Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth, but the real thunder from Down Under is Hulk. The “enormous green rage monster,” as Tony Stark once called him, suits up in his gladiator armor as a new electronic action figure coming from Hasbro, EW can exclusively reveal.
Measuring 13 inches tall, this Hulk comes with catchphrases and the ability to interact with his 12-inch Thor figure buddy, who has five points of articulation. Much like Thor: Ragnarok, these toys take inspiration from the Planet Hulk comic book arc, which sees Bruce Banner in his alter ego form blasted to the planet Sakaar and forced to fight in gladiator-style matches.
Hulk will retail for $34.99 with Thor at $19.99.
Also part of Hasbro’s line is role-playing accouterments, including the foam Thor Rumble Strike Hammer (complete with swinging sound effects) at $19.99 and the Hulk-Out Mask (with movable eyebrows and mouth) at $19.99.
Fans and families will also be able to purchase the Hulk Smash FX Fists, which include accelerometer technology that detects movement and responds with sounds accordingly.
These items will be available this fall as Thor: Ragnarok heads for a theatrical debut on Nov. 3. Here’s hoping for more action figures of Cate Blanchett (as Hela), Tessa Thompson (as Valkyrie), and Jeff Goldblum (as The Grandmaster).
