Valkyrie Lead Figure (2009)

These little figures are pretty great. One of the only real issues I have is that the figures paint job can be inconsistant – but the sculpts are pretty excellent and the size makes them easy to display. Valkyrie, of course, has a lot to do with the Hulk – her first appearance (as Barbara Gordon) was in The Incredible Hulk #142. She also became a very important members of the Defenders. But let’s forget all that for a moment and focus on the fact that she’s a bad-ass chick with a sword!

Who would mess with her? Not to mention she fights in what is basically a bathing suit! Next week, in addition to my regular posts, I will be posting my favorite covers with Valkyrie. It’s a kick off to a new feature on my blog – I will be taking one of Hulk’s foes and for a whole week highlighting some of the best covers featuring that character. It’s also going to serve as a way of me logging in every Hulk issue I can – and linking them to the Comics Page.

The Comics Page, by the way, has been divided into 3 different pages. I have separated the pages into regular series, guest shots and Trade Paper Backs and Collections. Check them out – and as I said I will be trying to link covers to each comic listed – as well as trying to keep a price guide for each comic. It’s all in an attempt in making this one of the best, most complete sources for Hulk collectibles! But, man, it’s a lot of work!

So, yeah, Valkyrie… great figure! See you next week!
