Let’s just get this out of the way right now… Kurt Russell is a gosh-darn national treasure. The guy is amazing in everything he does and he always seem to be having fun doing it. When I learned he was going to Ego the Living Planet in the MCU I immediately thought “This is the best move Marvel has ever made”. He didn’t disappoint either. He was awesome. I remember thinking that I would absolutely make sure to pick up anything commemorating this actor in this role. Even in a line as identical as Dorbz I think Russell’s personality shines through.

Ed Norton still takes no responsibility for his being replaced in the MCU Click the image for the article.
Funko continues to step up their game. The new series where the heroes are covered in the symbiote. While all of them look pretty spectacular the Hulk/Venom Pop is easily the best! The Hulk can be seen beneath the symbiote, the spiky tendrils wrap around our jade giant, turning him into a horrifying monster! This figure is seriously brilliant in its execution.
While the Venom symbiote has the main bulk of this figure on display with it’s sharp teeth, claws and famous emblem across his chest. While the other two heroes featured have already been covered and bonded with the alien parasite the Hulk has yet to be taken over. This is the best part of the entire figure as it would make sense the symbiote would have a hard time completely
After years of the Hulk threatening to eat people the Hulk finally shows just how violently he will end people in the bleak peek into the future of Old Man Logan. The Hulk isn’t messing around anymore if you get up in his grill he will digest you and evacuate your remains. Of course, that’s not how this encounter ends – it goes slightly different. If you’re one of the 6 comic readers out there in the world who has not read Old Man Logan then I will not spoil it for you.
I recently found this cover to Buffy: The Vampire Slayer #19 with a homage to the Incredible Hulk #1 but with Giles in his place. I really like the lengths they went to in capturing the essence of the original art – with the little Giles losing his eyes and the older (bigger) Giles hued in grey. Top notch work!
The Q-Figures are interesting. The original Hulk Q-Fig was given away with Loot Crate and didn’t really generate a lot of interest. The figure is fun but really small and kind of unimpressive. Well the figures took a sharp turn into awesome-ville with the Thor: Ragnarok releases. While there is a Thor figure I didn’t buy I did pick up the Hulk. I picked up 2 actually – but keep reading for the reason why.
The Gladiator Hulk here is a stylized animated Hulk with a rageful, angry expression that was missing from too many of the other Hulk figures from this movie. While this is a definite pick up for any serious Hulk collector I do have a small gripe.
The “clouds” generated by his rampage are a bit too large and they divert your attention away from the figure where it really should be. Other than that though – it really is a great piece! I was able to acquire two for a reduced price due to the packages being slightly damaged. Overall, you should go out to purchase this figure to add to your rooms of green!
This may be a lot more destructive to his digestive system than the fork! Sure he might not have actually eaten the missile in this scene but I’m pretty sure he would! If he’s all about eating people where is his line, really?
