Marvel Heroes Figures and Stickers (2008)

When these first appeared on the shelves I was pretty certain I would be able to easily identify which packages contained the Hulk.  Well, I was wrong.  Really, really wrong.  About 30 packs later I had a ton of figures – none of them Hulk and more and more frustration.  I kept picking up Daredevils because he’s HUGE!  Not to mention way out of scale with all the other heroes.  Check it out:

Why is DD so frickin big?

Don’t be fooled by DD crouching – he’s almost as tall as the other heroes and isn’t standing up straight!  Spiderman is a dwarf compared to DD – and since when is Wolvie taller then ANY of the other heroes?  Yeah, the scale is way off on these characters.  I had almost every character except for the Hulk when I decided to not spend any more money on this line.  But obviously I did not stop – because I am both dedicated and a sucker – but I didn’t pick up another package.  Instead I found these boxes at Target the other day.  I decided to try my hand at finding a Hulk one more time.

I picked up 2 boxes – each box comes with a 2 figures and about 52 cards – this was the last attempt at getting a Hulk.  Amazingly, this had to be my lucky day, I ended up with 2 Hulk figures!  Sorry Hulk fans – the other one is already spoken for by our ever lovin’ JG!  He’ll be shipping out this week for ya!

The bases are all pretty much the same – except the Surfer and the Goblin – they actually use their modes of transportation as the base – which is sweet!  Lastly, the card set (which I almost have them all – hoping to complete the set through a series of trades)  is full of Hulky goodness!  One point of contention – No grey Hulk stickers!  What is up with that?  He’s like the dirty little secret Marvel tries to ignore most of the time!

Here’s a few more pics – including all the figures except Invisible Woman – and a shot at Hulk’s backside – a blurry one because it wouldn’t come out – but notice it looks as though the Hulk is showing a little crack?  Anyways – here you go…

Boy, it is a sausage-fest in here!
