Tales to Astonish #62 (1964)


This really poor copy of TTA was sitting in my LCS.  This is the origin of the Leader.  Man, what a great series the first TTA was.  Filled with Humanoids – on trains, on islands, a huge humanoid that threatens the army and the Hulk stops them all!  The Leader was supposed to be brilliant but all of his plans were about using more humanoids to try to defeat the Hulk.  When the humanoids fail – he just makes more and tries the same thing again.  What classic stories. 

Hulk Walkie Talkies 2 (2008)


Another set of walkie talkies?  Yes, another set – these work a little bit better than the other set that I have.  You can actually hear the person when a foot away from each other.  That’s all I wanted – just to play with toys the way they were intended!  That can’t be too much to ask for.  Found these at Target with the Taget Exclusives – I also have just recently been to Toys R Us – got the Exclusive there – and I talked to the Director about getting the promotional Hulk stuff there – but unfortunately there was no budging her.  She told me that the company said they need to be destroyed.  I know that’s what the companies say – but really – they are just saying that to try and stop people that would sell them on ebay for an outrageous amount of money.  Those people ruin things for everyone!
