Holy! Bill Bouldurant was right!

If you scroll down to the vintage letters column post where little Billy makes a joke about Hulk having a green thumb – well – I just found this photo that proves he’s right!  Good Goly the internet is great!

Jade Giant’s Collection…

He has two big guns!  Green and Grey!

He has two big guns! Green and Grey!

Jade Giant is a friend off Statue Forum and Hulk Space.  He – like a few others Hulk collectors out there that I know – have collections that absolutely rock.  There’s quite a few extremely rare pieces that he has.  A lot of the Hulk items he has are in storage – so he displays the figures, the statues and kits – a nice clean looking display that I envy very much.  As much as I love to show you my Hulk stuff – here’s a great look at a friends Hulk collection.  Let’s get started here…

We will get close up pics following...

I love the hardwood floor!

 Now, you can’t see to many of the items just yet – first I wanted to show you the set-up of his room.  Everyone should be lucky as to have a room to escape to filled with their favorite character (or characters)!

Action Figures Galore!

Action Figures Galore!

There’s quite a few Hulk goodies on this shelf to remark about.  Let’s start with the single greatest Hulk figures ever made – the Face Off Hulks!  I also see the Mighty Muggs Hulk quite a few Marvel Legends Hulks like The End Hulk, Planet Hulk, Skaar, Maestro.  Also, on the top there, plenty of the movie Hulks and the Target exclusive Hulk.  Toward the bottom the Ultimate Hulk next to the Hulk bank – and on the other side the Hulk Cookie Jar – both of which I have yet to add to the collection.  Quite the set-up of action figures.  I have most of mine still in the package – but sometimes you can’t help but to buy one to open up.  I’ll have to ask JG if he opens all of his up or if he likes to open them up and let them breathe.  Moving on…

Hulk Statues Galore!

Hulk Statues Galore!

Man, I am just drooling here – looking at all that green!  Some immediate items that catch my eye is the 2007 BD Hulks.  Yes, not only does he have the grey and green but the Faux Brinze Hulk as well.  With the 2003 green BD Hulk and the 40th anniversary Green Hulk bust – both of which I have been trying to snag for the right price (I have their grey counter-parts but want the repaints).  Let’s take a closer look at some of the unique pieces here:

Joe Fixit in all his glory!

Joe Fixit in all his glory!

You might recognize the Fixit bust from BD – but the full size Fixit is a customized ARH Hulk.  Remind me to ask JG what ARH is… I love the suit – and the expression on his face – priceless.  His fedoras were always too small…

Mike Hill and Mouldart Busts

Mike Hill and Mouldart Busts

These 2 busts are great as well – both of which I don’t have… 😦  The one on the right is from Mouldart and I was outbid on an ebay auction about 4 or 5 months ago for an unpainted one.  I love the paint job done on this – and can’t wait to get one in the future.  The other bust – unfortunately – I will not be getting.  About 4 of them exist and JG was lucky enough to be one of the recipients.  Created by Mike Hill this is one stunning piece.  Next up…

Bust and Kit by dynabol!

Bust and Kit by dynabol!

I am lucky enough to have purchased the kit on the right.  I have not posted it – just got it (unpainted) and have sent it out.  I will be sure to post it when Jen returns it all painted up.  But both of these unique pieces of art were created by Matt Brundage.  The bust was the study piece for the kit – and the bust, yeah, also ONE OF A KIND!  Man, JG is such a lucky guy!

wow - wow - and ehhh...

wow - wow - and ehhh...

Here’s a Planet Hulk statue from ARH, man I wish I knew what ARH was…, if Bowen wasn’t releasing the Planet Hulk FS soon then I would be scouring the earth for this… I love the skulls on the base and the pose that the Hulk is in.the Art Department Hulk – it’s a really nice piece – they have an Abomination kit as well that rocks just as much!  Lastly, the Attakus Hulk.  I have been quoted many times as saying that the Attakus Hulk is not my favorite – or even my least favorite – in fact, it’s not even on my radar.  Then again, the Attakus bust wasn’t on my radar either until I got for pretty cheap.  Then, seeing it in person made me swoon!  So maybe the statue is the same way.  Only issue is I wouldn’t pay the prices people are asking for it.

All in all, JG has one of the most beautiful set-ups and most complete collection of statues and kits that I – or anyone else – has ever seen!  Thanks to JG for allowing me to show everyone on my site his Hulk room.  JG is working on getting a site of his own up – when it’s running I will be adding it to my Blogroll, of course!  He’s a great guy – pretty much everyone in the Hulk community is!  It’s funny, the few Hulk collectors I talk to have been really nice, generous people who are more than happy to help a Gammabro out here and there!

Classic Hulk Joke…

Look how surpirsed Stan Lee is that he didn’t come up with the right answer!  Goodness gracious!

This Looks Familiar… Part 2

No Kidding – anyone missing a bit of that David touch to thier Hulk stories these days can take solace in the fact that he still writes for him – just in this one right here Marvel Adventures (which is Marvel stories, just more appropriate for the kiddies) – and this cover looks really familiar – someone giving homage to the great Sal Buscema and the cover from The Incredible Hulk #280?
