There are a lot of RC toys on the market, but some demand to be noticed. They have a really unique and creative approach to the radio-controlled toy platform. The Avengers: XPV Marvel RC Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle is one of those innovative RC toys.
The toy is Hulk straddling a Hydra Humvee, with swinging Hulk arms. It comes with an easy to use controller with a two-directional joystick and a spin button.
The Hulk’s arms can be set into one of eight positions for more smashing. The Hulk moves forward and smashes as he goes, he spins, and the car can tip over and right itself thanks to the swinging Hulk arms.
This toy is fairly battery intensive. It takes 8 AA batteries to power the whole thing; two for the controller, two for the RC car, and four for The Hulk.

What We Like About Avengers: XPV Marvel RC Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle
The images for the Avengers: XPV Marvel RC Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle in online stores can be a bit deceptive. This thing is a lot bigger than the pictures give it credit for. It is made of a durable plastic, designed to withstand the crashing and smashing that would be expected of any Hulk toy.
Hulk Smash is super fun to play with. The controller is very simple to understand, even for young children. The joystick only goes forward and back. The back does not cause The Hulk to reverse, but rather it initiates a spin. The big red button makes The Hulk spin even faster.
The eight position options for The Hulk’s arms make for lots of smashing and rampaging. But there are some positions which will prevent The Hulk from righting himself easily when the toy tips over.
When the box is opened, there is a cord attaching the Hulk Smash toy vehicle to the controller. The cord is to save on battery life when on display in the store. It can be discarded after opening.
What Others Are Saying About Avengers: XPV Marvel RC Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle
A lot of parents and grandparents say that this is an ideal toy for a boy in the 4-7 age range. They say it is not terribly complicated to operate and the child spends a lot of time spinning and smashing through their other toys with The Hulk.
Some have expressed some concern over the volume of the Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle. The Hulk has 10 phrases and sounds included, and a few parents do say that this can get repetitive for the parents. The children seem to enjoy the sounds though.
Most kids will absolutely adore the Avengers: XPV Marvel RC Hulk Smash Toy Vehicle, with it smashing, tumbling, and crashing all over the house.
The smashing Hulk arms are a clever twist to the usual RC car offerings in the marketplace these days. It should make for extra entertainment as The Hulk tips over and pops right back up for more smashing.
The benefit for parents is that you get a lot of toy for the list price. The ‘Try Me’ packaging means there is no way of telling how much juice is left in them. So 8 extra batteries might not be a bad idea to go with this item.
