Alright folks – here it is!  The latest Hulk Sideshow diorama  (I’ll post more pictures tomorrow) now the last dio, I’ll be honest, I thought that the Hulk was a little out of scale.  He was huge compared to Spiderman and while it was massive, it was my least favorite high end collectible.  This dio is a totally different story!  Inspired from the artwork to the cover of The Incredible Hulk #95 it showcases the match up between Hulk vs. Silver Surfer on the planet Sakaar.  Here’s the issue right here:

This dio is freakin sweet!

The nice thing about this dio is that it comes in two pieces.  This little feature makes it easier to display, not only that but this is the exclusive with a change -o- hand and a warrior helmet.  I had him with just the closed fist like the cover – but the ax was just too cool not to have him holding it!  I also chose to display without the helmet, mainly because the cover doesn’t have him wearing it – but it’s so beautifully sculpted I had to make it part of the display.  I laid it at the Hulk’s feet.

The exclusive has a run of 900 – mine is #189.  I’m not really sure why the Surfer is wearing a loin cloth – it’s not like he has junk that will be exposed if he wasn’t wearing it.  He’s been naked for YEARS in the comics – why is he being modest now?  People have asked if it’s hard to display each character with the poses the way they are – Surfer hiding behind the surf board – but that’s why it was so crucial that they make each piece separate.

Surfer... Scared out of his mind!
