Hulk Sun Glasses (2008)

Hulk's future's so bright...

Hulk's future's so bright...

I now have MORE Hulk sun glasses that do not fit me… I, of course, didn’t buy these but instead was given these by my mother.  She returned from Florida with Hulk sun glasses.  I can’t complain when people get me Hulk stuff – I do have an entire room of my house dedicated to the guy  – not to mention some of the crazy things I’ve bought.  But the best part is that she bought both kinds of sun glasses (I might be rubbing off on her, in a bad way) as a completest I would do this – but as a mother isn’t it your job to say things like “You have one pair, why do you need another?  That’s just a waste of money!”  Now, instead, my mother picks up every pair of Hulk sun glasses that she can find.

Wendigo Marvel Legends (2008)

Wendigo Marvel Legends

Wendigo Marvel Legends

This is the figure rumored to being the best and most sought after.  It is really amazing!  It’s huge and detailed and massive!  There are a few set-backs to this toy though – first off, Wendigo is all white so the paint application is pretty standard – I do wish there was a better way to give some highlights though, maybe with a bit of grey but this figure is without.  Again, the packaging is he one thing this line has done right.  Instead of the bubble packaging that the Marvel Legends had adopted they go with the blister packaging with a plastic bubble glued to a cardboard backing.  There’s a classic illustration of the character at the top left corner.  It’s pretty phenomenal all around.

The face and heavy metal hair do make up for any letdowns on this figure.  There’s a great wide tail that attaches to the back and… oh… unfortunately that’s it.  This Marvel Legends Figure Line is really lacking on any accessories.  It’s a huge bummer too – because those are some of the coolest aspects of these toys – and to charge more – for less!  And sure, you do get a piece for the BAF Fin Fang Foom that looks really good (this comes with the right arm and wing of Foom) – but those shouldn’t count as accessories.  All in all this is still a great figure that lives up to the hype and is is a must have!
