The Incredible Hulk Promotional Standees (2008)

I have a few of these things now – pretty happy with the haul.  Most of the people I talked to gave me a strange story of how they “donate” all this stuff to children’s charities or schools.  Most of which was baloney.  The BK guy told me that he gives it to a school in Plymouth.  I asked which one and he said the Elementary one.  There is about a dozen Elementary Schools in Plymouth.  He didn’t know which one he gave it to.  Listen, If you’re not going to give me the stuff – just say no – don’t concoct some elaborate lie about how you’re a good guy donating to schools.

But some of the people I talked to were extremely pleasant and didn’t have a second thought about giving the promo stuff (which happens to be thrown away when they are done with it) giving this stuff a second home!  In my collection!  The people at Circuit City – who had no clue about what there exclusive Hulk DVD did – were very happy to hand this over.  I was psyched!

The man who runs the Blockbuster near me was very glad to save the Hulk stuff for me.  He was such a nice guy and even gave me a few of those little backer cards as well.  He saved the display and the advertising standee for their DVD exclusives.

This was a last minute Christmas release!  I remember last year seeing the Spiderman and X-Men pop-up books and scoured the rack for a Hulk one.  Nothing.  But a great Hulk-brother of mine, 5150, posted this up on Hulk Space a week or so ago and I ran to Borders right away.  Funny enough, no Hulk pop-up book.  I had to special order this – and it came in last Friday. 

Not even a book can contain the Hulk!

A nice little Hulk refrence this has a quick Hulk history bringing people up to speed on not only the Hulk but also the supporting characters like Rick Jones, Betty, the Abomination (there’s a great page with him on it), there are little tabs on almost each page that gives you some great backround info.  Careful now, just because it’s a pop-up book and the kids will love it – it’s still very delicate!  Don’t let the toddlers alone with it!
