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:
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…
