Marvel Legends Titanium Figure

I had the hardest time tracking this guy down!  After I sold my extra #181 I had a nice chunk of change – I bought the 2 McGuinnness pages as well as this guy with the funds!  But a funny thing happened… I bought this guy off ebay, the seller sent it to me – but I opened the package, which was strangely longer and skinner than I expected.  And then I found out why.  Upon opening the package I discovered a Stone Cold Steve Austin figure.

I was so bummed.  I had been trying to find this figure for a good price for over a year!  And now this!  I emailed the seller – he apologized and asked that I send the figure back.  He refunded me the money and told me that he would send the Hulk figure if he gets it back.  I wasn’t holding my breath.  But sure enough – almost a month later! – I get another package in the mail!  I got it the same time I received the Marvel Select Hulks in the mail.  Inside was the Hulk figure!  The seller had refunded me the money AND still sent me the figure!  Now that is service!

I love the little unique things about this package – the plastic cover has small, drawn cracks on it – like the Hulk has been trying to break out!  And the sides of the package have huge images of the Hulk’s face!  The other side has a different image – the Hulk’s mouth is closed – but man, I am so happy to have finally gotten this!  Definitely worth the pick up!

Oh. My. God.

SMASH ONE SHOT

Loeb hasn’t done enough to ruin comics as of late so he will be releasing a “Smash!” one-shot in April.  If Smash looks familiar it’s because… THAT’S THE FREAKIN’ HULK!  Just purple!  Like Barney on steroids!  Or a pumped up Grimace!  Disturbing to say the least.  This monstrosity comes from Liefeld – the same man who brought us Agent America.  A man who knows something about plagiarism.  This comes from Image Comics – the house of ripping off ideas…

Oh look!  It's rip-off Batman vs. Rip Off Hulk!
