As I said in my last post, finding Skaar on the pegs where he wasn't just a few days ago after having won this World War Hulk on eBay was a a double play worthy of note- almost too good to be true. It gets better by the minute over here, I swear :D These two are quite the father & son pairing- the sculpt and paint are so damn great on these rather large Marvel Universe figures... it's hard to believe they are going for the same price as their smaller counterparts- there is literally three times as much mass!
Skaar is the son of Hulk & Caiera, an extraterrestrial colonial to the planet Sakaar where she & the Hulk first met and subsequently battled prior to him becoming king. The planet was doomed ultimately, and Hulk's queen along with it- when he ran off to find those responsible, Skaar was born alone on the destroyed planet.
While my nephew loaned me his copy of World War Hulks this past July 4th, I've not read the entire World War Hulk story arc- I merely enjoyed these Hulk figures dressed as barbarians, which seems quite natural to me. While I enjoy these as art objects, I am interested in learning more about, reading more of the story.
Time for a group shot, I say!
