40th Anniversary Bust (2003)

dfh40 

I don’t know how you can even call this thing a bust!  It’s absolutely huge!  It’s 8″ high and 9″ wide – and Heavy!  Weighing in at around 10 pounds Hulk sits on a pile of books – picking out his favorite to read – Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  There is a green version of this bust – but I opted for the grey because I think it looks so much better.

The green Hulk is holding the book upside- down (because the green Hulk couldn’t read).  It’s little details like that that truly make a piece special.  While the green version was limited to just 1,963 (Commemorating the year the Hulk debuted – although he debuted in ’62) the grey version is limited to 400 commemorating… I don’t know what.

This piece was released at the same time that The Leader statue that I posted earlier was.  The Leader statue doesn’t compare – it isn’t nearly as great as this one is.  This Hulk piece goes in the top 3 statues/busts I own.  Released by Dynamic Forces.

  1. This statue is special to me. This was one of the first statues I got when I was starting my Hulk collection. I was so excited when I got it because, based on my age, the price just made it seem out of reach. I just love the cleverness of the design and subject. One of the most brutish characters of all time on a stack of books reading none other than Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, one of the very characters he was based off of!
