Hulk through the looking glass...

I told you I had a great weekend… and I was stunned when I walked into Dartmouth’s Wal-mart and saw The Incredible Hulk wave 3 figures!  But even more curious?  The Hulk I ordered from Hasbro.com was packed opposite then the ones I found in the store. 

I have no idea why – and thankgoodness this isn’t the late 90’s when they would consider this a variant.  Seriously, this would be considered a variant.  It would say something like “Right packed boulder Hulk” and “Left packed boulder Hulk”.  They would both be going for like $100 until people realized there was no difference in the packages and they would plummet to $5 overnight.  Don’t believe me?  Well, who remembers – I’m sure there is some of you – who remembers the Power of the Force .01/.02 variants?  The figure, card, everything was the same – except on the back of the card, near the UPC label, there was a sequence of numbers that ended with either a .01 or a .02 – and people made a huge deal out of it.  Why?  Because they had too much time on their hands and took action figures a little too serioulsy…
