The art from the Funko t-shirt that was given away at Toys R Us is also used for this lanyard. The great thing about these are the little plastic figures that are included with the pouch.
The Gladiator Hulk might be really close to the comic counterpart but the inclusion of the hammer and exclusion of an obedience disc will always be the glaring misstep of this movie’s costume. But the helmet is a major bad ass move!
I love being asked to display some of my Hulky goodness at local libraries. This year I decided to display mostly my Pop collection with some other goodies sprinkled in. And please, excuse my daughter’s rag a muffin look – it was rainy that day!
Now consider the fact that years later it was Namor as the lone hold out on the Illuminati to refuse voting to send the Hulk away. He was the only member who didn’t like the idea to send away this once enemy/ once ally… even once friend.
As much of a bummer as Toys R Us closing is it was also quite interesting to see all the “augmented” items were brought into the stores. A lot of Hulk framed pictures including this one that highlights the Hulk’s face and actually lights up! The light up feature could go very badly wrong but in this case it really brings out the best in this “illustrated” Hulk face! I feel like it would a perfect companion to the light up Hulk fist that Target sold a while back.
Multiple Man #1, which graced the new release rack a few weeks ago, has a great appearance of a Hulk – technically not our Hulk, but a Hulk-ish version of Multiple Man. If you didn’t pick it up or haven’t picked it up or don’t plan on picking it up but still want to see exactly what I’m talking about – well, you’re in luck that I’m feeling so generous because, here you go:
Here the Hulk is once again threatening to eat another human. I know the Hulk isn’t one for social cues but this takes it to a whole different level! Keep your mouth to yourself, man!
There are so many different emotions when you think about the latest Avengers movie. While it was an amazing translation from comic to screen it was also a low point in the Hulk’s silver screen life. Bruce Banner does sport the Hulkbuster in this movie so his inclusion in the Hulk room is totally justified beyond a simple rival.
This Pop figure is a better representation than the original Pop that was offered in the very first Marvel Collector’s Corp. This more stylistic version of the figure reminds me of the amazing art of Chris Uminga. Look for his work – if you’re not familiar you won’t be disappointed! This Hulkbuster doesn’t really follow the large head, tiny body format that the Pops are so known for. What would have been amazing would be an opening helmet feature with a tiny Bruce Banner inside – much like the Gamestop exclusive Hulk bursting out of the armor released a few months ago.
