Dollar Shop Hulk (2014)

I am pretty sure that most people are walking right by these – and rightfully so – they are cheap looking, cheaply painted, no articulation and downright ugly.  So why do I get so excited over stuff like this?  I have no idea!  This is just a repaint of the cheaper Avengers Assemble line Hulk that hit big box stores last year.  Both lines of these series are cheap figures designed to release something more for children rather than collectors – which is fine.  Actually I am glad they made these – I even like the card art better than the Avengers Assemble backer card art – because it does seem that they are making these toys more for adults sometimes.  I am not saying any collector’s SHOULDN’T pick this up – all I am saying is that this figure has it’s place and I don’t think figure collectors collections.

This Reminds Me…

This announcement takes me back to the days when Hulk: Gray was released.  Loeb – trying to tell a new sort of Origin included Iron Man into his story.  Many people, including your fellower blogger here, thought it was a silly inclusion and an easy, cheap thrill to spice up what was a mediocre story.  As excited as I was when Waid began the Indestructible Hulk storyline – his writing lately (and lack of explanation on what is actually happening to the Hulk, and the armor, etc…) is really dragging my optimism down.  I always get excited about new mini-series – even if they don’t turn out too great (like the latest Marvel Knights: Hulk mini) – but this one already seems to have a stigma attached to it.  Click on the image for the link.

Hulk Bike Lock (2014)

I am pretty sure that there are two groups of people coming up with merchandise – one group is a bunch of people interested in making a ton of money and want to use commercialized characters on any piece of crap to do so.  The other group is a bunch of people who have generally good, unique ideas on how to use licensed characters in an exciting and fun way!  Okay – this is a fallacy, I know, but it’s still more comforting to think that these products aren’t generated by the same people.  I really thought that this bike lock showed a small amount of brilliance.  Also, the fact that it is password protected rather than just a number lock is a whole different level of cool!
