Holy cow! How did they not use that is a better question. Anyway, despite what people are saying about Hulk, I still like him. Sure the legs could use some work as in bulking them up and maybe giving him some fingers for his fists, but he looks good to me at least. I'll probably revamp him. However, I guess another reason why I like Hulk might have to do with not wanting to make him angry, so I won't get smashed by him.
Finally an iron man set, and it doesn't use a Glatorian Head! Lego missed an opportunity there.
R.I.P Grandpa. You will be missed.

I don't think it's the same part. Cap's nose is too big to fit in the little nose-wedge of Batman's cowl, and the mouth looks different.
Oh, one thing: did anyone else notice that Ultrabuild Cap's head is Ultrabuild Batman's, but with the ears chopped off and an A on the forehead? Clever reuse on TLG's part, I have to say.
from the water to the hills and vales
is a place where the dark conceals a heavenly sky
underneath is shimmering light
far along on the milky way
leading down to a place where the sun won't set at night
and the stars glow perfectly bright

The grainyness won't be there in the final product. That texture in prelim parts usually means it hasn't made it to full production yet, and was just fabricated with a 3D printer. In fact, the grainyness is one of the most promising things about that fig because it means there'll likely be a couple more revisions before its release.
About the Iron Man minifig:Upon close inspection on my iTouch, I noticed the IM helmet on the minifig is grainy.Also about him:Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha-- cough cough hack!! Hack!!!...Yeah.

At some point you realize that you are but a speck in the Universe.
That you time in this worlds is but a blink.
You see the whole of reality as it unfolds before you.
You try to see how far you can reach, and it’s not that far past your face.
But then you come back from the brink.
You hold them in your arms again.
And you know that you are where their world begins.
You are their rock.

92% of BZPers use sigfads. If you are part of the 8% that think them pointless, copy and paste this into your signature.
Yayz! I'm an old, defenseless leader guy!

According to people like you, LEGO has been running out of ideas for years. But they keep wowing us with original themes like Alien Conquest, Ninjago, and Monster Fighters. Taking on a license is far from an admission of "running out of ideas". Rather, there's a huge demand for licensed themes, and by taking advantage of that demand LEGO can earn more money to make new and original lines.As a side note, there is more to most of those Avengers sets you've mentioned. An entire faction of antagonists in the Avengers movie is being covered up by LEGO and Marvel, and as such many of the Avengers-themed sets are shown without the figs, vehicles, and accessories for this faction.And even given that, yes, they're overpriced. This is a consequence of being a licensed theme, which means that LEGO has to pay licensing fees on top of the cost of production. But these don't seem much more overpriced than themes like Star Wars and Harry Potter have been for years.
Lego is running out of ideas...But about the sets, only Cap and Iron Man are the only good constraction sets. The actual sets themselves look pretty cool (especially Batcave) but they seem overpriced. The copter looks like a $14.99 value, I sure as Karzahni hope that there's more to the bike. Even then, knowing Lego, it'll most likely be worth $9.99. Ahh, I remember the days when that copter would be $14.99!
