Marvel Select Red Hulk Figure (2008)

Yes, it came in!  And yes!  The head is a bit too small…  The figure itself is pretty great – even the head mold is really decent – just not proportionally accurate.  The body sculpt still works well with this figure.  It’s still huge and towers over almost every figure they put out.  The color is spot on – a slightly darker, less cherry red than the ML BAF Rulk.  Man, that title feels like I’m texting…

The few things the BAF Red Hulk figure has over this one is that #1)  The Red Hulk is supposed to be a little bigger than the green and the BAF is bigger than all of the ML Hulk figures.  The Marvel Select figure is the same exact size as the green.  #2)  The BAF nails the McGuiness art really well. It nails the art in a way that very few toys do.  The only other toy that surpasses this figure in accuracy is the ML Face-Off Hulk.  The Marvel Select figure is just a little bit off in getting the look of McGuiness’ art.  And since there haven’t been more than 3 artists that have drawn a published Red Hulk so far – and this figure doesn’t hit any of them – that’s a strike against it.

The packaging is huge and has the Red Hulk image from Hulk #1’s cover.  This was only available on the BBTS website.  These are available on ebay for about $35.00.  Or you could buy a case for $25.00 each which translate to roughly $150.00.  But then you’re stuck with 5 extra figures… but it’s up to you – all I can do is try to steer you in the right direction – it’s up to you to make the choice.  You guys grow up so fast… *weeping*  Sorry, let’s get back on track here.  3000 of these figures are made.  That’s a pretty small run so that will probably help it’s collectibility factor.  Over all, I say pick this figure up if you can.  even though it’s the less superior figure I still feel like it will be sought after.  The BAF Rulk figure has already started to drop in price with a lot of them going for $60-$50 and a few are actually going for even lower than $50.

Legendary Scale Bust – Grey Version (2008)

Grey Hulk LSB

So, I know I said I was going to post something else yesterday but after my shower I fell alseep, and today was so busy… but hey!  You come here for free so I don’t want to hear any complaints!  So – on to today’s treasure!  I told you that when I got the green LSB that I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it really was.  The pictures never did it justice.  Well, what got me reconsidering the bust in the first place is this grey variant.  A slightly smaller run on these bad boys – 300, and mine is # 194 – makes it a little more harder to get, but not much.  The teeth gave these bad boys a bad wrap but all in all it’s one of the nicer Hulk busts.

One of the members of Hulkspace needed to sell this guy off and he let the forum know.  I was the lucky high bidder for it and thanks to the member for giving me a heads up.  Some of the unique attributes of this statue include the green eyes, the paint job is done so well, the yellow ring around the pupil makes the eyes pop – Like they are really staring you down.  Why do they always give the grey Hulk green eyes but the green Hulk doesn’t have grey eyes.  Also they streaked the black hair with blue highlights.  I can’t say it enough… if you haven’t gotten at least one of these then you should.  But don’t pay SS prices.
