Ummm… Part 19

Why must we see Hulk bodies with little animal heads?  That’s just plain creepy.  And somewhat confusing.  I also have no idea why the kitty-Hulk is holding the President in his hand.  Looks like the President made the wrong person mad… well, actually, he kind of did!

Kirby Hulk Shirt (Hulk Shirt 19)(2008)

Kirby Hulk shirt

I bought this at the same time as I bought the Movie Hulk shirt at Bedrock Comics in Framingham.  I love this shirt and have already worn it twice.  I wore it to a cookout last Saturday where we had a fire pit and I went home smelling of fire smoke (the best smell ever).  My shirt still smells like that smoke and I love it!  What a classic image to put on a shirt – when the Hulk was still a menacing creature that was so visually arresting you had no choice but to pay attention to him!  I love Kirby’s image of the Hulk so much that it’s almost a shame the Hulk’s look has changed so much over the years. 

Dynamic Forces Green Hulk Bust (2003)

I did get the Graham Cracker exclusive variant of the “Gray” bust.  This version is actually better than I thought it would be.  The color is really bright and the sculpt look appropriate for the color in both.  I think these busts are the weakest of all the busts – but still, in person, they look rather cool.  Especially if you have both and display them together.

This is still limited to 1963 (which still makes no sense – but this one is # 1399) and why does the variant say “Gray Hulk” while this one just says “Hulk”.  I think a variant should also have a lower run.  Just my opinion – but I think it would be cooler to have both statues if they BOTH didn’t ahve a run of 1,963.  Nevermind it being the wrong number to commemerate the date of our favorite green and grey goliath!
