I think the statue is far better than any of these pictures show! This is not in my collection – the owner did not want to sell it, but I still had to show it! I emailed the owner about the details – he hasn’t gotten back to me though so I will tell you what I know…
This sucker is one of a kind, weighs about 50 pounds and is a whopping 16/17 inches! Grey Hulk here was commisioned from a sculptor who had to work with an image about 3 inches big. Is he wearing riding gloves? Only real tough guys wear those! They completely clash with the Daisy Dukes he’s wearing though… The proportions may be off a bit – the skinny waist, the legs are too short, not muscular enough – but to me I think it adds to the uniqueness of the piece.
The Hulk always has been handled differently by artists. I think the whole statue works – the boots, the gloves, the excess of the pants collected around his ankles – all of it gives this statue a great presence. The details in the statue are great – from the bulding veins to the ripped shirt. It reminds me a lot of the cover to The Incredible Hulk #23 (volume 3):
But thank goodness he didn’t include the little pups. And – maybe it’s just me – but you got to make the pant legs longer! Hulk would never wear shorts that show off his cheeks… I would’ve also liked to see a base. I’m big on statues having a base. I would’ve liked to see maybe a street rubble base. Grey Hulk statues always need to have a different feel to them than a green Hulk does. This Hulk definitely screams Grey Hulk. Screams Fixit! Thanks to the owner of Comically Speaking for allowing me to show you this unique and amazing Hulk piece!
