Hulk Bust Bank (2008)

This bank really does look like a bust that you might get from Diamond Select (not Bowen though)  It has a great facial expression and the sculpt isn’t even too bad!  I ended up finding this on the cape at a Newbury Comics while I was searching out the Marvel Legends line.  While I didn’t find them there – I did end up locating every figure.  I will be posting those very soon.  Hopefully, with all that’s gone on recently I will get back to posting pretty regularly.  Here’s to hoping!

The little details is what makes this bank.  The veins that line the entire Hulk – and well, look at that!  Looks like Hulk’s picked up a few Crest White Strips!  Man, look at those pearly whites!  The pants, hair, and even the back are sculpted really well.

The Leader Lead Figure (2008)

I actually like the fact that they chose to base the Leader figure on McFarlane’s version.  I prefer his to the classic “Tall Head” Leader.  I would like both – but if I can only have one I’m pleased it’s this one.  I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to work these pictures with this new program.  Man, why couldn’t it be as easy as the last program?  Anyways, I’m surprised that they haven’t done an Abomination.  This hopefully will be a sign of things to come.  They have a Rhino figure – but I didn’t think it looked very good.  The color booklet that it comes with is as great as the Hulk one is – it’s gives all sorts of info and lets anyone who isn’t as informed about the Hulk lore in on some great tidbits.  For example – who out there remembers that The Leader has a brother?  No?  Well, well, well…
