This new Bulk is definitely my favorite version of the character. He's tall and stocky, living up to his name. His missiles are a great gimmick, and his original helmet is back. His size, weapons and heavy neck armor really makes him stand out among the other figures of this wave. The ONE thing that I don't like about him is the color scheme, though. His helmet, missile shield, hands, and neck armor are all silver, but the rest of him is that dark gunmetal gray color, with a few orange pieces. I really wish LEGO would have made him with silver pieces instead of the dark gray, but that's just a cosmetic issue, and one that can be fixed by changing out armor pieces.

If you are looking for a cool-looking Hero with many pieces and do not mind that only few of them are new, then I urge you to get Bulk as fast as ya can, although it may be a wiser to decision to buy Core Hunter instead, which is not only this summer wave's best set in my opinion, but comes with a ton of new and useful pieces.

Bulk is quite fun to play with. Maybe I am just childish, but I really enjoy deploying Bulk‘s shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, popping the rockets out of it and plotting an imaginary trajectory to the villains (or my brother). However, there is one thing that reduces the playability. Can you guess what it is? Exactly, the shoulder plates. Albeit articulated, it is sometimes somewhat difficult to arrange the shoulder armor in a pleasing way. And, much to my annoyance, it is almost impossible to move Bulk's head without cursing the shoulder plates for restricting the head's free movement. I am sure Bulk is as annoyed about that as I am.
