The release of the upcoming video game Marvel's Avengers is still months away at this point, but that just means there is plenty of time for more and more new information to come out about it. A bunch of details were recently revealed about special editions of the video game and an early access period, but there's already another new bit to mull over in the form of what appears to be the first and best look at "Outback Hulk," which one assumes will be an alternate costume in the game.
The new version of Hulk comes by way of a GameStop pre-order bundle for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and which includes a "Hasbro Marvel Legends Series 6-inch Outback Hulk,". The figure appears to be part of Hasbro's Gamerverse line, which puts out figures based on -- you guessed it -- the Marvel video games. There's a good chance you might have seen figures from the line based on the PlayStation 4 Spider-Man video game at your local GameStop in the past.
Given the packaging, there's every possibility that this particular Hulk will release as a standalone product at some point. It also means that there is almost certainly going to be other figures in the line, though it's unclear exactly when they might release or which characters they might be based on.
