She-Hulk

She-Hulk was one of the figures I was most curious about when Hasbro announced her inclusion in Marvel Universe Series 4. Of course, distribution being what it is, she was part of the wave of figures I never saw at local retail.

Brown Gremlin

The Brown Gremlin is something of a generic army builder type of figure, and uses the same body mold we got with the Flasher Gremlin in Series 1, only this time we don’t get the soft rubber trench coat and the color is different.
