Alright, That’s Pretty Cool!

Zombie Hulk

A shot from the SDCC of a Zombie Hulk costume.  It’s the perfect combination of gore and muscle!  I can only imagine how heavy this thing is to wear around.  It doesn’t look very mobile either – but I’m still darn impressed!

Re-Casters Be Damned!

A point of note – that anyone who purchases statues off ebay should read – there has been quite a few re-casted Sideshow Hulk vs. Spiderman dio’s that have sold.  The re-casts are pretty easy to spot once you know what you’re looking for.  First, usually they are selling for a pretty nice price – remember kids, if it’s too good to be true then it usually it is!  Next, most of the re-casts are sold out of Taiwan or the Philippines.  Not all of the items sold out of these countries are re-casts but unfortunately a lot have been.  Lastly, the paint will not look right.  A little too bright and a little too sloppy.  The pic above is from a fellow collector who unassumingly bought a re-cast so he promptly painted it red.  Why not, right?

Bi-Beast Sneak Peek!

So, I’ve decided Tuesday will be the day when I post the pics or any interesting news I find.  Of course, I will post any big news the moment I find it – but I did want to post this here last week and I waited until today.  So over on The Statue Forum there is a talented guy called Alex over there who sculpted this piece.  He sent it to Randy who loved it and will be releasing it soon!  The base will be different – bust the bust itself is going to be coming out and I have to say – what great timing!  With the video game that features the Bi-Beast released more people than ever are aware of this great character!  Looks good – I personally can’t wait for this – and congrats to Alex!
