A Grail to be Sure…

If you have enough scratch to purchase this now – then do it.  I can’t get it – but you NEVER see this piece on ebay – especially with the Banner bust with it.  Get it – get it now – but be prepared to spend thousands.  And do it quick becuase it ends in 10 hours…

Hulk vs. Zzzax SHS (2008)

Hulk vs. Zzzax

Hulk vs. Zzzax

I have every wave of SHS.  Wave 2 at least made it to some specialty shops – but wave 3 was available only from ordering off the internet.  And it’s too bad too – because this is my favorite 2-pack.  Zzzax made his first appearence in the comics at issue #166 but my favorite issue that has a Zzzax story has to be #285.  Zzzax even fought the Rick Jones Hulk – which, who wouldn’t want to fight him? But, I digress.  The best thing about these figures is that Zzzax is made of translucent plastic – this is how I would envision him to look in live action.  I also like to imagine that every time I touch this figure it shocks me – wait, crap… did I say that out loud?  I mean – it’s just a figure! It’s not really made of electricity!  (I wonder how how hard it would be to connect it to a power source?)  The Hulk is the same Hulk that you get in the series with Spiderwoman -although this is a darker shade of green – but funny enough the Zzzax is so cool I don’t mind the recasting of this Hulk.
