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.
