I really was not going to get this bust – I thought they were asking way too much for a sub-par rendition of the Hulk. There is a variant of this bust that was a Towers Records Exclusive – it featured the Hulk in mid transformation and there are just two words to describe it – UG and LEE. As with most Hulk pieces I always think of a price that I would pay for an item – and full retail was $50 – it might have been more – but I certainly wasn’t going to pay that. Here’s the thing – it’s not the worst bust I’ve seen – it’s just no where near the nicest.
So where does this bust go wrong? Well, let’s begin with the biggest issue, my biggest bone of contention… The name on the front. I hate busts with name plates. If you need a name plate with your bust then you shouldn’t have the bust – just my opinion… but even worse – this name blends into the base so badly that it makes no sense to even have there.
Next is the amount – the production run. There is no way this will ever be worth anything in the future with a high production run like this one has – how many did they make you ask? Only… 7,500. Yes, SEVEN THOUSAND and five hundred of these silly little things out there.
It’s too bad too – because the face sculpt isn’t half-bad! Ultimately, Hulksters, I would say if you can get a great deal on one of these, like I did, then go for it – but otherwise… leave it on the shelf.
