Koto Hulk!!!!!

This new 14″ Statue from Koto will be ready for order soon!  It has an Abomination counterpart that has bases that can inter-lock.  I probably won’t be picking this up – unless I see better pics – but I thought I would still show anyone who is interested.  Click on the pic for more info…

7-Eleven Slurpee Cups and Straws (2008)

3 straws

So here’s the story… my friend Corry lets me know that 7-Eleven has some exclusive items.  They aren’t as cool as the Iron Man Head cup – but I go to get them anyways.  When I enter the convenience store I see a cardboard cut-out that’s there to promote the new merchandise.  As I am purchasing the cups I figure I will ask about the cut-out since I hadn’t much luck so far acquiring New Hulk promo material.  When I ask the man behind the counter he asks “So, you are looking to buy that?”  I said no, that I was wondering about taking it when they were done with it.  He says to me “In 5 years, those are worth $5,000, $10,000.”  I was almost angry that he said this ridiculous statement.  I said “Carboard cut-outs from 7-11 aren’t worth that.”  He tried to re-assure me it was claiming that other people have inquired about it and that the person willing to pay the most for them will get it.  Disgusted I told him to forget it and walked out of the store.

Anyone who would try to sell a cardboard cut-out promo for $5,000 is nuts.  Antone attempting to buy one for that much is even crazier.

Anyways, I did get the 3 cups and straws as well as the comic that reprints Incredible Hulk #25 which depicts one of the bloodiest, most gruesome fights between the Hulk and the Abomination.

Wal*Mart Exclusive Hulk vs. Abomination 2-Pack (2008)

walexcl

It says Battle in New York – but doesn’t it look more like they are slapping 5?  Or is Abomination calling the Hulk the winner?  He’s holding his hand up like a champ!  And why are they staring at each other like that?  It looks like the end of Rocky – not a battle in the Incredible Hulk movie.  The Hulk figure has black pants – so it is different.  The Abomination looks like the same figurethough… I didn’t find these locally – I had to drive to Groton, MA on Sunday (that’s about a 2-hour drive for anyone keeping score here) for work and found this at the store there.  I was pretty stoked that within a crazy work commute I could use that time to do something more productive – like finding the Wal*Mart exclusive that had been eluding me!
