Randy Bowen has outdone himself here with these two extrordinary busts. Each sculpt mirrors the first appearences of the Hulk – the Grey Hulk with his ripped shirt and scowling mug – and the Green Hulk witht he same scowl – but bare-chesting it!
People have insinuated that these really aren’t busts – in the traditonal sense – because they have arms. Well since Bowen has already graced us with a true Hulk bust – and these two beauties came out so amazing, I’m not complaining! The green bust is limited to 2,500 (mine is #497) and the grey is limited to 2,000 (this is #536)
All right stop collaborate and listen
Ratchet’s back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop yo I don’t know
Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
I’m killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly when I play a dope melody
Anything less than the best is a felony
Love it or leave it you better gain weight
You better hit bull’s eye the kid don’t play
If there was a problem yo I’ll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves
So, until I move this weekend I will not be able to make any posts. I will be back, hopefully by next week to show you more of my stuff. Take a look around the site – make comments – I really enjoy the comments – even if they are from Corry. When I return I will have a bunch more stuff to show you – including the new Bowen Busts, the Planet Hulk Bust, a great bunch of comics (including one of the original 6) and a couple of statues. That’s including anything else I may find in my travels.
Bailiff: “Oh Man! He can smell it! Crap! Don’t turn around, Don’t turn around!”
Every time I opened a new part to this statue I just kept saying “Wow!” or “Holy crap!” This enormous statue is a little bigger than the Bowen Green Hulk and re-creates the cover to The Incredible Hulk #1. Even the backing of this statue is jaw dropping.
Let’s start with the fact that you receive 2 statues with this piece – A Hulk, of course, but also a Bruce Banner. Such detail went into this piece that they even made a wristwatch on the arm of Bruce Banner, underneath his lab-coat, you can’t even see it when you look at it dead on! But it’s there!
The size of this piece is awe inspiring. The Hulk, very Frankenstein-ish, looks just as he did when he first appeared, right down to his dead yellow eyes. I can’t say enough great things about this piece – and in a year that has had some great Hulk statues – that is saying a whole lot! It is limited to 2500 and this one is #423.
I bought this statue off ebay and got a really good price for it. If you pick up one Hulk piece – then you’re crazy. You need this statue, but then again, you need them all!
This statue comes in 4 pieces – packed away so nicely, it’s almost a shame to rip them out of the Styrofoam.
There is a rumor out there that the McFarlane-inspired grey Hulk statue from Diamond Select has been cancelled. Here is the picture of it so you know what I’m talking about:
I wasn’t sure if I was going to pick this piece up anyways – wasn’t sure because of the recent surge in Hulk merchandise recently (and the movie merchandise hasn’t even come out yet! Sheesh!) and of all of the sta – wait did I just say “Sheesh”? Oh, crap I think I did – of all of the statues that have come out recently this was by far the least impressive. I was probably going to pass on this statue anyways, so it doesn’t really affect me – but I know alot of Hulk fans out there are crying out in pain right now. Sorry bros.
There is still a chance that this is an ugly rumor and that it’s still coming out. I’ll keep you posted though
Doesn’t this make you want to tear your hair out!
