Incredible Hulk Toy Chest (1978)

hulk toychest2 

If you look at the About page you will see a conversation about this very piece – and a man named Phil F. offering to sell it to me.  Well, as you can tell, I decided to buy it.  It’s great, huge and fantastic.  Thank you Phil!  It was sent pretty darn quickly!  I tried a few times to snag this on ebay but was outbid a bunch of times.  Phil gave me the opportunity to own it wihout having to fight anyone else for it.

Made by Sun Products in 1978, this is the perfect Hulk piece to hold all of you other Hulk toys.  This thing is so great!  The purple bottom fit in perfectly with the Hulk lore of the 70′s and 80′s.  It is plastic but the head is molded so perfectly – it’s even intimidating to the people who see it!  Look at that sneer!  I reccomend this toy chest to everyone who can find one – everyone who can afford one – this is probably one of my favorite pieces in the whole collection.

  1. The best part of this picture is the Seinfeld Boxed sets in the backround. Oh crap! Did I just say that out loud………………..

  2. That’s so unoriginal! You said that about the Nirvana Boxed set you fiend!

  3. I call them as I see ‘em. I looked at all of the photos and the only thing even worth commenting on were the Seinfeld DVD’s. Nirvana is one of my favorite bands and Seinfeld is my favorite show. Other than that, this site is meaningless to me………

  4. Don’t you mean:

    Other than that, this site means everything to me?

    Sad, but true. It’s both our whole worlds.

  5. Pained me to get rid of, as this was a part of my childhood, but I’m glad it went to someone who will appreciate it…Also glad to see it arrived ok.

    Cheers,
    Phil

  6. Thank you again Phil! It arrived in great condition!

  7. If I had a chance to get one, how much should I pay?

  8. Well, James – I was offered a great deal by a fan of the site – but this one just ended on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170233255966&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=007

    For me, that’s pretty high… but to each his own.

  9. I have this toy box with half the sticker still on it. I’ve had it all my life and its nice to see people still care about them.

  10. My sister and I used to have this same toy chest. A friend of my dad gave it to us in the early-mid 80s. (I don’t know why he deemed it an appropriate gift for two little girls, but I’m glad he did!) I was just telling some people about it and searched Google for “incredible hulk toy chest green and purple,” and this site came up. It was an exciting and happy blast from the past to see this great toy box again.

  11. Well Andrea, glad I could help!

  12. I have an “Incredible Hulk” toy chest up for auction/sale. It is the purple base with the green removable top. I did see the one on e-bay that sold for $112.50; item #170233255966.

    Can anyone tell me what they have seen this incredible toy chest going for?

    Thanks to all….Steve

  13. It can go for $50 – $120. I know that might seem like a huge difference but thus the unpredictability of ebay…

    Good Luck.

  14. Thank you ratchet. Do you know if James (the one that posted on your website asking how much he should pay for one if he gets the opportunity to purchase one) may want to purchase it; or anyone else that you know? Thanks for your reply, Steve

  15. my friend just gave me this he had it at a garage sale for 15 dollars and nobody wanted it. I will treasure it forever and then sell it in like twenty years for a million dollars. score for me. I feel bad for the moron who paid 112.oo for it

  16. I don’t think the guy was a moron. These were going for over $100.00 for a while. But it all has to do with the condition of the toy chest. Scratches, the sticker, the color – it all can determine just how much the chest is worth. That combined with the fact that these rarely show up on ebay.

    Good score for you – I don’t know if you’ll ever the million dollars you’re looking for – but it’s a great piece for sure :)

  17. Hello all, my wife is making me get rid of mine(hulk toy chest) I wil gladly send pictures to anyone who may want to see it. She has given me two weeks to get it out of the house along with a large Emiglio Robot. Not sure if I have too many toys or kids…..decisions.

    Thanks,
    Randy undisclosed_locations@yahoo.com

  18. Good Luck Randy – anyone interested in his Hulk Toy Chest – email him. Personally, I love mine – it’s a must have for any Hulk collector!

  19. color me interested …

  20. You don’t have this yet, Dave?

  21. nope, have come close several times but usually have not picked it up for some reason or another

  22. hey all, just wanted to let you know that pictures of my HULK toy chest is now on Ebay. I put it on with a very high price just see what was out there. I actually do not plan on selling it through Ebay but am taking offers. I still have a few days before the wife throws it out. The one biggest stipulation is that it must go to a good home. I have had many toys and collectibles in my time and this is one of my favorites.

    Thanks all for your help,

    PS. I am a huge collector of vintage video games and as a collector would love to trade this off for older video games instead of selling it. I collect 1 of every item and then trade/sell any doubles so I can afford to get more stuff.

  23. Dave (JG)- Thanks for your purchase of the toy box. Please let everyone know how you like it. I already miss it.

    Thanks all for your help and let me know if anyone has any old video games-sega, nintindo, atari, Tandy

    Thanks Again,
    Randy

  38. Hey Rachet! Just thought I would leave a link to my hulk toy chest I am selling on Ebay as well. Its a really great piece!

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/231074078075?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  39. The reserve was 150.00 and has already been met. $ days left in the auction and it just went up late last night. I have a fellow ebayer and avid collector messaged me saying he has seen many go up for sale but none this spectacular. lol I think it will be fun to see just how high this may go! Not to be greedy but just the actual beauty in it all.

  40. make that 4 days left… lol
    I do believe Mr Blandino is the winning bid thus far lol

  41. Like I said – love the sticker on the front – it’s rare to find one in tact the way that one is. Good luck!
