I would love to have every variation of every Hulk statue there is out there – in fact, there isn’t too many I don’t have – but when I saw this re-paint I just had to get it!  I was impressed with how nicely this sculpt lent itself to the grey Hulk.  I’m extremely pleased with this paint job.  Bought in Reading at Comically Speaking, the owner is a nice guy who owns a ONE OF A KIND Hulk statue that I will show you next.

TWINS!

TWINS!

I have a regular version of this statue – and since there is only 3000 of these maquettes made – that makes it 2999 green versions and 1 grey version!  Factoring in how many have been damaged or abandoned it’s estimated, by me, that there is actually only 2996 or 2997 left!

This is # 1476 – so count that one out now! I really like how the painter highlighted the veins on this Maquette with a light purple color.  With the new Marvel Select figure out I’m not sure if the Maquette’s worth will hold up over time.  There was a time that the Maquette was selling for around $200 on ebay – the latest has been hovering just over $120.  Funny enough – one just sold for $62.00 – but it didn’t come with the box.  People are so finicky about that.  They want the box with the statue!  It’s weird, you’d think it’d be all about the statue – but they want the whole package!  Anyways, I’m very happy with this piece – I hope you like looking at it as much as I like having it!

Yowza! Like it? Love it? You know you want it!

DON’T BUY!

These statues have now been on ebay for months.  The seller has tried to sell these for months now.. please don’t bid on them!  They are recasted from Bowen’s original bust – and as we all know, recasters are thieves who seek profit off of work that is not their own.  Boo to this.
