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.
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.
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.
