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?

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!

  1. you’re a nut Ratch! and I thank you for that! I think I have a sticker or two you might be missing … anything I have is yours … can’t wait to get this one on the shelf.

    PS – all my Hulk stickers found their way onto the outside of the Hulk sketchbook

  2. I have about 4 DDs. The stickers are pretty cool and its not an expensive little treat – considering I do all my shopping at Target. At least I know what the Hulk looks like now!

  3. I too thought for sure I had scored Hulk … but it was DD … Bah!

  4. What did I tell you? That DD is so out of scale it isn’t even funny! Ridiculous almost! Hulk’s going out today! Should have him by the end of the week or so!

  5. got it Ratch – thanks a lot bro!

    I have at least one sticker you need so I will send it out … I will send my other s as well … might give you some doubles to trade with

    Ah, I see my e-mails to Marvel are finally paying dividends…

  7. I just started buying these tonight! I didn’t get a Hulk yet either. I’m going back tomorrow. I ended up with four Mr. Fantastics, two Green Goblins, one Spider-man, one Captain America and one Silver Surfer. I tried to feel through the bag and see if I could find a Hulk, but no luck yet! Wish me luck for tomorrow! I’ll update and let you know what I got! 🙂

  8. I ended up getting a Hulk! I have a bunch of duplicates but at least I have it.

  9. I was wondering if anyone could help – my nephew has started collecting these but i am unable to find a sticker book for the stickers!!! Is there one and does anyone know where i could possibly get one from, as he has the full sticker collection now but nothing to do with them???

    Thanks in hand
