Hulk Activity Book (2008)

Finally, The Activity Book!

Finally, The Activity Book!

Here’s that damn Activity Book I promised.  I kept on telling you that I was going to post it and then just didn’t – but here it is!  On double-shot Friday!  I also thought that we could make a little game out of it.  The below picture has a phrase.  You have to come up with a word out of that phrase – now to make it fair you can only post one word at a time and you have to let someone else post in between you.  ALSO: EACH WORD MUST BE 4 LETTERS LONG – NONE OF THIS 3 LETTER CRAP!  If you break these rules then I will delete your post!  That’s right!  I’m bad!  Don’t mess with me!  I’ll start!

Release The Rage!  How many words do you see?

Hulk Slippers (2008)

Hulk Slippers

Welcome to double shot Friday!  Sorry this post is so late but Thursday’s line up of shows that I watch is utterly ridiculous.  Takes up all of my time!  I was going to get rid of my T.V. one year and then I realized that I really like 30 Rock and I forgot about the whole thing…

Actually all that rambling is to just fill up a little space because there’s not much to say about these slippers other than that I bought them at midnight at the same time I bought the Incredible Hulk movie.  Yay!  Slippers!  Feet warm!  I wouldn’t have bought these except that I was waiting for the movie to roll out at midnight and I bonded with them.  Screw you for judging me!

Well, well, well… buy these – or a house

It looks like the biggest collection of Stretches is up for sale.  Not sure why – but I will love to see how much this actually goes for.  The auction keeps stating how RARE each item is and also let’s you know how much he’s been offered for a few of these.  Keep in mind – none of the Hulk stretches that I posted sold for what they are “estimated” to be worth.  ONE sold for a ridiculous amount – but the others got no where NEAR the amount they said they would.  I say estimated because the “worth” of these items are made up.  They’re actually worth what people will pay for them – so he says “I was offered $10,000 for a stretch Hulk” – well, one nut willing to blow $10,000 on a toy doesn’t mean there are others this crazy…

Attakus Hulk Bust (1997)

Attakus Hulk Bust

I hesitated about getting this Hulk bust.  I stopped myself plenty of times because the pictures just didn’t look pleasing.  Then a great deal came up on ebay so I went for it – and then when I got it in the mail I was pleasantly surprised.  It looks to me to be based on the art of Gary Frank and it’s heavy – real heavy!  But, it’s not like there aren’t plenty of these to go around – there are 8,888.  This one is # 988. 

A run of 8,888 might be a little... big

The other obstacle, other than trying to find a good price on these – a price that you feel like paying – and my price wasn’t very high… is that these were only released over seas – made in France.  Attakus also has a statue made from the design on the 2003 Movie Hulk – but that runs really high for a statue that I think looks rather unimpressive.

Profile - man, he has some little ears!

I will say it again, I actually like the look of this bust – once I got it I was happy to have it – as far as where it rates among the busts I own – it is not the least favorite!  It’s actually better than the WWH busts from earlier this year.  The only thing I have to say that may be an unfair bias is that I am not a huge fan of Gary Frank’s version of the Hulk.  Sure, it looked really good – but too good in my opinion.  Hulk isn’t supposed to look like he’s a GQ cover.

Hey you guuuuuuuuuyyyyys!

Sonic Destruction Hulk vs. Hulkbuster 2-Pack (2008)

I have so much backed up to show you… I just got the Hulk Movie Regener8r’s at Kay-Bee tonight and realized I haven’t finished showing you the movie figures that I have.  This is the last 2-pack – and coincidently the last of the smaller Hulk figures that has been made!  What a great trip it has been, huh?  A lot of people liked the 2003 Hulk figures better – but personally I enjoyed these figures more.  Sure, the 2003 figures were bigger – but these had a wider range of figures – and no Hulk-Dogs!  Let me know what you thought by participating in this week’s pole!:

I have quite the line-up to show you next including 2 very rare Hulk Kits and a custom repaint.  I will be posting these in the upcoming weeks as well as the greatest Activity Book ever!  Maybe I will post that Friday… 🙂

Ummm… Part 26

 

It’s not the costumes… those are okay.  But this gets the Ummm… treatment because, well, THEY’RE COUSINS!  Why are they so close?  Guys – it’s still illegal in the 50 states!  Back away Bruce!  Back away…

Hulk Sequel…?

A lot of rumors have been flying around – but some news has been confirmed – like, Norton signed on for the sequel.  Not much more but HEY!  The Hulk’s getting a sequel!  I am looking forward to finding out more when it’s announced!  Click on the padre to find out more!
