Here is something I’ve had for a while – and due to one of the constant visitors here – the one and only, Gammapup. Yes, Mike was decent enough to offer me his extra, as this one was slightly damaged while he was getting work done at his house. You can’t see it very well, but there are some scratches on the knuckles where the paint has completely scraped off. That is fine though, as I am looking into getting this repainted. I was thinking about making this a Grey Hulk wall Statue – but I don’t know, the green really pops! I still have to find a decent painter – preferably one in the MA area.
There is not very much information on this piece on the web – which is part of the reason why it took me so long to post this. What I can tell you is that 5000 of these puppies were made – this is #271 – and it was part of Ilusive Concepts. I think it came out in 1997 – but it might have been later. I am amazed there isn’t more information on the web about this guy – and truth be told I’ve seen a total of 3 pop up on ebay but they were all local pick up. Why? Because this guy is HUGE!
It’s certainly isn’t 1:1 – maybe 1:2 – but it’s still huge! I love the look on the Hulk’s face but overall the paint job is very 90′s collectibles. If you’ve ever owned this piece then you know what I am talking about. Thank you Mike, this is one of the most generous things anyone has ever given me! Maybe you can even provide some of the missing information – what did this guy retail for? What year did it come out? Anyways, coming up next: reviews!
